How about prices in Poland?
In restaurants, much depends on the type of menu and the standard of the venue. The cost of a decent meal is between PLN 15 and 30 (€ 3 - 8) for a single course, or PLN 20 to 80 ( ~€ 4 - 22) for a three course meal.
Shops and markets
Food prices are relatively low in Poland - particularly for locally produced goods. It is even cheaper to do your shopping at farmers' markets. You will not only buy directly from the producer, but also you will be able to haggle, as asking for a good price is the accepted thing to do.
Here everything depends on how you want to spend your time and money. Most pubs and cafés with live music and disco bars sell different type of drinks and appetisers, thus catering for a wide variety of tastes and wallets. A 0,5 l glass of excellent Polish beer, depending on the type of place, will cost between PLN 5-12 (~€ 1,5- € 3 ). Cocktails are usually priced at 10-15PLN (€ 3 -4). Cinemas, theatres, aqua-parks and game arcades are relatively inexpensive, too.
The cost of public transport in Poland is generally low. Within towns, it is best to travel by bus and trams. While trams in large cities offer quick and easy travel. Buses during rush hours may be crowded and slow, thus planning ahead is advised. Tickets for cost between PLN 2-3 (~ € 1) /per person.
If you do not know the place well you may prefer to take a taxi. Compared with other European countries, Polish taxis are relatively cheap. Fares range PLN from 2,8 – 5,40 per kilometer on weekdays between 6:00 and 22:00 outside Kraków's administrative boundaries.. After 20hrs and during weekend it is more expensive. For long taxi trips you should negotiate the fare in advance. If you plan to travel by train, make sure to calculate in advance the cost of your journey - fares depend on the type of train (regular, fast, express) and class. The comfort of first-class travel is not very different from second-class, while ticket prices may vary significantly. Some trains require booking a seat.

Krakows public transport
In Krakow you can use public transportation such as tramways, buses and private-owned minibus. Really the public transport is very effective and not expensive. The very hard thing are the names of the streets: they are unpronounceable for most of foreigner tourists. Like everywhere, the public transport users are required to have a valid ticket, traveling without a valid or validated ticket results in a fine. There are frequent controls in the major cities. One-way ticket for a municipal bus and the tram costs 2,80zloty. You can buy it at every news stand (kiosk) or ticket machines. Immediately after boarding you should validate the ticket, putting through the ticket puncher and keep it till you get off. Prices and types of tickets vary and you can buy time tickets. You can choose between tickets for an hour, 24hours, 48hours, 72hours, a week, a month or others. Please note that you need an extra ticket for every large piece of luggage, carrying bicycles or pet animals. Minibuses run by independent companies don't accept the municipal tickets, the fare is paid on boarding to the driver.

It's also better to park your car in supervised or other public car parks and to avoid leaving your possessions in full view inside your car. Poland is free from domestic terrorism and the threat level from international terrorism is relatively low.

What season would be the best to travel?
Here is the tip for you when to go and what to expect in each season in Poland.
Generally the weather in Poland is very unpredictable from one day to another and from year to year. It is quite difficult to expect how the weather is going to be in Poland.
Four seasons are very clearly defined in Poland.
Spring begins in March, it is initially rather cold but it gets warmer day by day. It will be the best season for those who prefer pleasant and warm climate than strong heat in summer. It is perfect time if you would like to enjoy the nature and to go hiking in the mountains as it is less humid and lower temperatures.
Summer starts in June and it is the warmest and brightest season of the year. It is bright and sunny between June and August, it is the most crowded time with full of tourists for all the resorts on the Baltic coast. Autumn begins in September and it is usually still warmer and sunny at the beginning. It turns colder gradually and foggy by November.
Autumn can be the most beautiful time of the year in Poland. You can enjoy the famous "Polish Golden Autumn", with the amazing landscape of beautiful colourful leaves and trees. The view of the mountains is stunning and much worth to see it during autumn.
Winter starts with the grey and wet weather and lasts from December till March. The temperature gets lower rapidly and the day becomes shorter. There are frequent intervals of snow and the mountain snow usually remains till May. It is great season for winter sports enthusiasts and holiday-makers. Winter is the second most popular season after summer for tourists visiting the mountainous regions in Poland. The coldest months in a year are January and February and the temperature often drops to minus 20 degrees.
How to dress for the weather in Poland?
Weather is generally similar to the one in other European countries. It is less humid in the summer and autumn is usually mild. Winter is cold with snow and temperatures can be few degrees below zero.
Where can I pay by credit card?
In Poland the use of credit cards is widely accepted, particular in major towns and tourist attractions. You can use credit cards in supermarkets and most shops. It is quite handy as they do not need to exchange money before coming to Poland. The most widely used cards are Europay International, MasterCard International, Visa International, and American Express, both embossed and electronic versions. Electronic cards (Maestro, Visa Electron) can be used only in cash dispensers and at points of sale equipped with electronic card readers. Embossed cards (Eurocard/Mastercard, VISA) are not subject to such restrictions.
Can I use atm in Poland?
There are almost ten thousand ATMs(called Bankomat) which are connected to all international networks. It is convenient way of dealing with your money during your stay in Poland.
Can I use euros in Poland?
The currency of Poland is called zloty(zł) literally meaning "golden". Poland is not part of the Euro currency zone. The currency code is PLN. 1 zloty (zl) is subdivided into 100 groszy (gr). The bank notes are 10, 20, 50, 100, 200 zl and the coins are 1, 2, 5zl and 10, 20, 50 gr. It is wise to check the exchange rate when changing money. You can exchange currency anywhere in the country, regardless of the size of the city or town where you are. Some shops may accept EUR (notes only, no coins).
