    Looking for a hostel in krakow! Poland . Not expensive, clean, good location.

    The "Goodbye Lenin" Hostel was pretty good. Damn, even the Janitor's party during my last day there. http://www.goodbyelenin.pl/ about 4 years ago

    What is free diving

    At a glance, it is diving without the use of an oxygen tank. This can be used for snorkelling, spearfishing or general fun. The sport of free-diving involves training for depth or time of breath retention, can involve a line, flippers, static breath holds, distances in swimming pool and more. Having recently trained some freediving techniques with the Apnea Total schook, I fell in love with the activity and substantially increased the depth of my diving and time I could hold my breath underwater. Highly recommended and an amazing way to enjoy the ocean. Please look at some clips on youtube to get inspired! almost 5 years ago

    2 days Krakow. Must sees? Restaurants?

    Best Krakow Guide/App: http://www.local-life.com/krakow - this had all the great spots: little cafe's tourist attractions etc. I downloaded the app and found myself getting around no problem. "Communism Tours" This is a MUST DO. I've been twice on each visit to Krakow, the tour is so good. http://www.crazyguides.com/ Whilst tongue in cheek, the education regarding the post-war/Stalinist era is very interesting. They literally pick you up from your hotel in a Communist Era Trabant car made of plastic. I would opt for the "Communism Deluxe" tour. Kazimierz: I found some great accommodation in Kazimierz, it's bars and panini style sandwiches in the centre are a really great atmosphere. Great cosy little place. http://www.cracowpostergallery.com/ - great poster shop, showing original posters and also Polish interpretations of western classics. This was a very interesting shop. Krakow Main Square - beautiful in Winter, the only time i've ever been there. Wieliczka Salt Mines http://www.local-life.com/krakow/entertainment/310-Wieliczka_Salt_Mines - absolutely incredible salt sculptures. Must see. Wawel Castle http://www.local-life.com/krakow/culture/704-Wawel_Royal_Castle - Nuff said. There is also one of the "7 stones of Shiva" in one of the chambers: http://www.inyourpocket.com/poland/krakow/sightseeing/wawelhill/The-Wawel-Chakra_97567v Home Army Museum Sadly, this wasn't in the tourist brochures or even had English exhibits, I persisted in finding it. A good testament to the Polish resistance to Nazi & Communist Occupation, which was one of the largest underground forces in Europe: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Armia_Krajowa_Museum_in_Krak%C3%B3w http://www.muzeum-ak.pl/ Hope this helps. I really enjoyed Krakow. There is also nearby Auschwitz/Shindler tours which you will see a lot of tauts for. Hard choices for 2 days. about 5 years ago

    Has anyone hit up Las Lenas in Argentina?? Is it worth the price you pay?? And does it have a good social seen, as all accom is hotels?

    Its a great place, but heavily dependent on the weather. I stayed in the staff quarters for almost nothing. Most people tend to party till early morning and there is from memory only a few bars & pool hall there. The riding was awesome, but weather was schizophrenic with the main lift only being open in really good conditions. Great off piste. Some of the lifts quite slow and they would be stopped during strong winds. I was there in 2005 last time. Better place if you speak some Spanish. almost 7 years ago

    Where are the best places to ski in Argentina in August?

    Las Lenas is great. I stayed in the staff quarters for cheap, good place to bush up on your Castellano. Only problem is weather is pretty heavy there: winds stop the chair lifts, the killer run "Marte" wasn't open a lot. BUT: Killer off piste at Las Lenas. Bariloche/Cerro Catedral was good riding also, but I found Bariloche a bit boring, except the chocolate supermarket. Again, dirt cheap. about 7 years ago

    Is it safe to travel with sleeping train from Warsaw to Kiev and then from Kiev to Krakow on my own? Dose anyone have idea of plice?

    It would be safe, yes. I was travelling in Poland, without native language and it was difficult, however a lot of Warsaw citizens did seem to speak English and Krakow is a very big tourist attraction. I would say you could get help from your hotel/hostel/accommodation to get help with booking train trips, or contact a travel company which are sure to speak some English in Warsaw & Krakow. over 7 years ago
