How to Commute within the Krakow City:

We were commuting by local Trams and Uber within the City. Krakow City is well connected with Public Transport, Our Apartment was located around 2 KM from the Krakow Old Town and the Tram was passing by the door of the Apartment.

We were buying the Day Ticket that costs 5 and it’s more convenient and cheaper than buying a ticket every time. If you are staying for 3 days in the City, we would suggest you to buy a 3 days pass for commuting within the City.

We had reached Krakow in the late evening, after dropping the baggage at our Apartment we rushed toward Krakow Old Town. As I have already been to Poland before in Gdansk but Aoon was visiting Poland for the first time and he had a very different perception about Poland, he was totally surprised to see the Rich Architecture and Infrastructure of the City.
