How much money per day do I need in Poland apart from the costs of lodging?

This sounds maybe a bit stupid but I really haven't got a clue.

i live in Krakow.. Nov 19, 2005

this price on that internet site are olny about EXPENSIVE restaurants. (apart for Georgian Restaurant, Chaczapuri, which is cheap and good). So, we can say:

food:

- bar mleczy o bar salatkowy: around 3-4 EUR
(tipical polish food, or salad bar)

- pizzeria: around 4-5 EUR

- cheap restaurant: around 5-6 EUR

- expensive restaurant: why you go there?

taxi:

start 1,5 EUR + 0,50 EUR/Km (but after 22.00 it cost twice)

Taxi Hotel->Centre may be around 4 EUR

other examples:

- bottle 0,5 litr COCA COLA: 0,90 EUR
- 1 coffee: from 0,60 EUR to 1,10 EUR

if you have question, please ask

Daniele

1. tip - cumshaw - bobbin money - 2. Phoning? Nov 21, 2005

Ueh, Daniele, grazie per fare il cicerone virtuale!:-)
If an Italian says that you can get good food for little money, there is really no need to spend a fortune on chic restaurants.

1. What about tip?
Something in between undertipping and spoiling.:grin:
Example: taxi from the airport to the hotel costs appr.
60 zloty (12 Euro?). I would give 5 zloty if the driver is okay.

2. Where can you make a cheap phone call into an European country?
No mobile and in the hotel mostly very expensive.

Sono curiosa e parlando polacco non mi riesce proprio facile.

Na razie!
Stefania

Telecommunication in Poland is expensive Nov 22, 2005

even much more expensive as so expensive as Germany - so maybe the magic word is Skype...

I wouldn´t know about any really good possibility of making cheap abroad calls from Poland.

As for the tip - the 5 PLN from Tuliparolas (Steffi´s) example are a good tip. Usually we round to the next "round" number (ie 61 to 65, 8 to 10 and so on) - there is no fixed rule AFAIK.

Best
Jerzy

Food is very cheap Nov 28, 2005

The amazing conference is over. Here some experiences:
Bar mleczny (kind of self-restaurant):
6 zloty for barszcz cierwony (delicious!) plus pirogi with mushrooms - plus a great cup of tea.
So, something like 1,60 Euros!
I gave the tipps to the taxidrivers with all my heart, because there were all sincere, friendly and customer-oriented.

Wolfgang Jörissen knows Poland thoroughlyand showed me an internet cafe with possibility for budget calls with very low rates for calls to Germany, UK, Netherlands etc.
