Thanks very much Asiulka for all your help. I will let you know how I get on. I am not in Krakow until May 09, but this will be my second visit. Krakow is a truly great city.

I have been reading that the train is a better option than the bus to get to Auschwitz . I don't mind the walk, but is the station far from the camp? I have also read that the 2 camps at Auschwitz are only 15 minutes apart or I take the shuttle bus? Thanks in advance for any info.

Hello,the train station is not so close to the Museum, but you can take a city bus or take a walk, visiting pretty town (it takes about 25 minutes to get to the Museum). Regarding geting from Auschwitz to Birkenau, there is a shuttle bus, leaving Auschwitz at half past the hour and leaving Birkenau on the hour. It is free (if you are on an official tour), or you can just walk the two miles between the camps (although it isn't a very nice walk as it is along the roads). If you've just missed a bus, a taxi between the sites will cost about 15 zl. greets, jo
