Hi Steve. firstly the most common beers are Tyskie and Zwiec - not much to choose between them, hope you like lager, expect to pay anything from 5 to 12 zloty depending on what sort of place you drink in. There are lots of great restaurants and bars around Kazimierz, no real need for recommendations a lot of the pleasure around there is exploring the places that look like they're straight out of the 30' and 40's, if you prefer a particular type of food then you can find it all. The train from the station is easy to get but not at all handy for Kazimierz, it only stops at the main station, it would be about a 20 minute walk to Kazimierz from there, alternatively you can get a taxi quite cheaply from outside the station. Check out for more info.

There are a few exceptions to the lager phenom ... Tyskie Dark comes to mind. It's not bad and a great alternative after a few pints of national lagers that really all taste the same. Here's some more info on Kazimierz ... and ... and

My advice to you regarding the journey from the airport to town would be to take the train to the city centre and then a taxi. My cousin insisted on taking a cab from the airport in November and it cost nearly 80zl, of course this was influenced by the traffic but still! The train is really handy to get to from the airport, less than a 5 min walk and there is also a handy shuttle bus that takes you to the train in a matter of seconds. The cost of the train is 6zl one way. Take a taxi from the train station to Kazimierz will cost less than 15zl on a good day. Enjoy Krakow :)
