Several questions in one I'm afraid.
My wife and 16 year old twin boys are thinking of spending 30th of Nov to 5th of Dec in Krakow, partly for visiting the christmas markets. We have been to several German markets over the years, but thought we would try something different this year, and take advantage of the new ryanair flights from Cork. It still seems uncertain as to when the market will open. Any information would be gratefully received.
In order to keep everyone in the family I would also value any advice on:
1. whether there are any decent model railway shops in the city.
2. if there are any steam train excursions in the area, and
3. are there any spots in the region for observing wildlife.
