Does the 292 bus go all the way to beside the train station? MIght use it if the times of the train don't suit. Our hotel is a couple of minutes walk from the main railway station

That's great John, thanks. Wasn't sure if you had to change bus, so that will be a perfect solution if we miss a train.

Here isnthe planning tool visitors to Kraków will find the most useful, and maybe also the most difficult. It’s called Jakdojade and the Krakow version is here http://krakow.jakdojade.pl/?locale=en

Basically, the difficult bit is that you need to be able to accurately identify three things – your start and end points on the map and the time you’ll be setting out. This is because:

- The tool will give you a detailed route, including a map, from start to end points including walking directions, bus and tram elements, stops to get on and off and times, and

- All this will also take account of the time you’re setting out – so if there is a choice of trams, for example, the tool will give you the first available route – so, setting out ten minutes later might give you a different route.

Confused? Don’t be – as long as you understand those points you’ll be fine and quickly see the value of the tool and appreciate the work which went into it. Oh, one more point. The tool will presume you want to use the tram or bus. There is no option to just walk. The tool is available for all these cities – just click “change city” • Białystok • Bydgoszcz • Górnośląski Okręg Przemysłowy (GOP) • Grudziądz • Kraków • Łódź • Lublin • Metropolia Zatoki Gdańskiej (Trójmiasto) • Olsztyn • Poznań • Radom • Rzeszów • Szczecin • Toruń • Warszawa • Wrocław

The best way from the ester hotel to the station is by tram

Krakow train station is "Dworzec PKP" on the planner John has provided

Thanks for your help, guys. We got the shuttle bus from the airport terminal to the train stop and from there to the main station. From the train station, we got the No 3 tram four stops and from the tram stop it was aprox 50 metres to the hotel. Loved every minute of our stay and will certainly be back.

Glad you enjoyed Krakow, Johnboy. It's an excellent taster for Poland. Come back, but also come back to see more - there are LCC flights into many Polish cities, which can themselves be stepping stones into some fantastic places. Think the beautiful Baltic Coast, Malbork, the Masurian lake district, and all the way down to the lakes and mountains of the south.
