    Obviously, Auschwitz is the most famous in Poland, but I'd be interested in hearing your take on Majdanek or Stutthof if you got to visit those.

    Re: Poland

    Ill definitely be going to Auschwitz since I know its very close to Krakow...The others one maybe, all depends on if I have time. Auschwitz is going to be pretty intense, even just going to the holocaust museums can be tough, I cant imagine what going to the actual camp will be like. As a Jew its pretty much my obligation to see it though.

    Since Poland is fairly large (roughly the size of New Mexico) I wonder how easy it is to move around from town to town.

    I assume there are trains like most European countries but I am unsure...The program I am in does offer some trips to certain places in Poland like Gdansk up on the Baltic sea and the salt mines, which are apparently pretty cool. I do want to do some traveling on my own though.

    Thanks, I dont really have too many specific questions. Mostly just about what there is to do in Krakow, how easy it is to travel around etc.

    Re: Poland

    If you take the submarine tour, don't be tricked into opening the screen door. It's a trap.



    But we do have a Pole on the site (a few actually). Maybe they'll see this and tell you all about the land that Germany loves taking over.

    I heard there is a lot of power outages in the malls and airports, make sure you don't get stuck on the escalators.

    One of my friends is mostly Polish, and he worships the Germans. He used to have German flag stickers on both of his back passenger side windows.

    The kid has some major issues.

    Wow.

    That's like being French and worshipping the English, or the Italians....or the Germans.....or anyone really.

    Try not to think too hard...

    Also, remember if one throws a pin at you... Run. He's holding the grenade.

    And if you ever see a one-armed polock in a tree... wave at him. It'll get him out.

    What's green and flies over Poland?

    Peter Panski

    Why do the Polish end their names in 'ski?'

    They can't spell toboggan.
