My 26 year old daughter and I will be traveling to Vienna for the Christmas markets in December. We were thinking that we have never been to Poland and would like go there. We have budgeted 4 1/2 days in the first week of December to do that. Initially I thought of starting in Warsaw and then going south by train to Krakow, spend a night then see Auschwitz and then train to Vienna.
Warsaw, Krakow and Auschwitz in 4 1/2 days seems a bit whirlwind.
I was wondering if just starting at Krakow and spending a day at Wieliczka Salt Mine and anotheer day at Auschwitz would be better idea?
