    Basically this is my plan below:

    28th-30th Gdansk (Day excursion to Malbork 29th)
    30th -1st Warsaw
    1st-4th Krakow (Day excursion to Auschwitz on 2nd)

    I already have accommodation and travel sorted so how much money would you recommend I bring with me? Thanks!

    Krakow is amazing but be careful of drinking scams. They give you one price and then charge you 10 fold. There a 2 free tours of the old town and the Jewish quarter and its really good. Also its really reallt cheap.

    Thanks for the advice, but how much would the whole trip cost?

    Well to give some prices. 1 pint is £2.50. A full evening meal costs about a fiver. About £10-£15 a night at a hostel. £35 for a historical tour from Auschwitz including travel and lunch. Some of the tours are free though you can make donations. Plus take some spending money. Up to you how much you take so it's your choice based on the prices for other things.

    It's more like 5 Zlotys to one British pound? (Sorry no pound symbol, in Canada...) I was in Poland in October and it hasn't changed since then....I agree with your cost of an full evening meal (a few courses, with drinks) at 5 pounds though, or less. Depends where you are, but 5 pounds is a good figure.

    I'd say about £600 spending money

    That's assuming you intend to be coked off your face the whole time

    Go here. Twenty zloty for your fill, personally went twice and had zurek and bigos. Massive portions. Can't recommend it enough.

    Staff speak great English as well.

    Are you sure? I was there last july and it was 2.5 to 1.

    EDIT: Just checked a currency converter. You are right, my bad.

    Hmm, pretty sure you can get a beer for a LOT cheaper than that, if you venture away from the main square!

    Yeah, Im sure its possible but if you want to avoid the scams then it may be safer to stick to the main square.

    Or drink in places locals go to, as opposed to places where conmen know tourists are found and easy to scam.
