Warsaw/Krakow other lovely towns?
Hello, we are from Minneapolis and my Polish husband and I are visiting Poland. We land in Warsaw and stay from September 11-14. We pick up a car in Warsaw on the 14th return it to Warsaw on September 24. We have ten days to drive and go at a leisurely pace. We are driving to Krakow. I want to spend some time there. What other lovely towns in Poland can we explore? We love the idea of seeing castles, lovely villages/town squares, and scenic views.
Would it be practical to visit the Czech Republic for a few days to explore that area? Will we have enough time to visit and or is that too much? We are happy to stay in Poland if that is not practical.
We are open to spending some time in the area close to Krakow as we will be driving back to Warsaw to return our car.
We are very open at this point.
Please advise. We appreciate any help. We have driven in the U.K. before and this is our first experience on the continent. We have bought an international license.
Unfortunately, despite his proud Polish blood, my husband speaks no Polish. We hope we will to get by speaking English.
Thanks in advance for any help.
