Krakow DO - Aug 24/25/26 2012

Hi folks,

I met with Jason8612 recently in Krakow and we really enjoyed time there. That's why we decided to invite all FTer next year to Krakow to spend a great week-end in Poland together

here's what we have in mind (other than enjoying great food and drinks with FTer):




Friday 24th August, 2012
8:00PM-When we finish Evening Dinner at Pod Baranem - This will be the official opening for the Krakow FT DO! We will all get to finally meet each other and have a nice start to the Krakow weekend. There will be a set menu to choose from. With starters, main, and dessert being served.

Saturday 25th August, 2012
10:00AM-10:45AM Cafe Szał w Sukiennicach. - We will meet at the Cafe Szał for a coffee/tea/juice in the morning before we start our fun filled day!
11:00AM Krakow tour
  • Krakow in a day tour (3.5hrs)

3:00PM - 6:00PM Free time - Time for you to relax, to get in some more site-seeing, or whatever your heart desires! I can recommend some options if you like.
6:00PM - 7:00PM Tram tour of the city on the Cafe Tram. - A private ride on the tram, showing us historic points of Krakow. We will be able to have a drink, and start the evening.
7:15PM (depending on tram’s arrival) - Dinner. A private dinner in the old town. Chefs will prepare Polish style multiple course dinner. Price includes food, water, tea/coffee, tip. Other beverages will be individual bills. After dinner, there will be an option to go out for a few more drinks.

Sunday 26th August, 2012

10:00AM - 12:30PM Sunday Breakfast. Depending on the venue we can arrange, it will be some sort of brunch (12€ average)
12:30PM/1:00PM Two Tour Options

  • Wieliczka Salt Mine (4hrs)
8:30PM dinner on your own, meet later for drinks

Friday and Sunday options are recommended, but are optional (Friday dinner is set at 130PLN, and Sunday tour is 130PLN). There is a limited spots of 30 people. If needed, a waiting list will be made.

just be aware that the saltmine tour on sunday (its a UNESCO world heritage site since 1978 btw) involves at least 64 steps when going down ... you've been warned (elevator at the end of the tour) but even famous people like Chopin, Goethe and Balzak went there ... so you'd be in good company.

not to mention I went there
It is a bit of some physical work, as not only there are stairs, there is plenty of walking.
