Side trips from Krakow
Side trips from Krakow Reviews
Watch your money Jul 07, 2013
As in most places you are in danger of being ripped off. The open-top buses that are a common sight in European cities are not found here. The alternative is a small vehicle that carries about 6-10 people. These are to be found anywhere in profusion. The prices are far from fixed at the levels stated and haggling is in order. However the price only covers one of three areas and gives you only half an hour in the area. I found even the lowest prices outrageous for this.
If you want to go to one of the more distant places like the mine or Auschwitz, check what it costs by public transport before committing yourself to a trip from your hotel or one of the numerous travel agencies. I dont know about Auschwitz but the costs to the mine are:- Typical Trip – 105 zlotys Entrance to mine - 65 zlotys Return on public bus – 8 zlotys. In other words you pay 73 going by public transport compared to 105 for a trip – for the same thing!
