I am planning on purchasing a rail pass in Europe but Poland is not part of the pass, but I would like to go to Krakow and see auschwitz
does anyone know the easiest/fastest/cheapest way to get there,
and afterwards I am planning on going to Berlin so an easy/fast/cheap way to Berlin from Krakow you may know is also appreciated!
any help is appreciated!
try studentagency bus company from prague to krakow. cheaper than train and very comfortable. you can buy ticket when you are in prague too.
i am not sure about buses from krakow to berlin, but on prague-berlin route there are a few bus companies, such as studentagency, orangeways and eurolines.
I traveled Europe a few years ago on a rail pass and Poland was included in the ticket. I think You might want to check again the countries included in Your ticket, because it might be there.
You can take a night train from Prague to Krakow and save on accommodation. Not sure how the price compares to the bus but sometimes it makes for a more comfortable sleep.
