I am currently putting together an itinerary for a 7-8 day trip to Poland some time in August. I am planning to spend 3-4 days in Warsaw and the rest will be in Gdansk. I have a couple of questions if I may:
-- Based on some discussions here, many seem to recommend buses over trains from Warsaw to Gdansk. Is this still the case? Have the trains improved between 2012 and now?
-- On the day I travel back home, would it be reliable to take the bus from Gdansk to Warsaw and then to Warsaw Airport? Or should I consider flying? I wouldn't mind chopping my vacation a bit with 3 days in Warsaw, 3 days in Gdansk, and then one day in Warsaw because I generally try to avoid flying.
-- Judging from the pictures, I think I might enjoy Gdansk more than Warsaw (I'm an architecture/old town fan). Is that a correct assumption?
-- Last but not least, any off the beaten path recommendations for Warsaw and Gdansk?!
