Andrze Jjlowka email glowka.trans@wp.pl  0048-602223205 Used him a few years back, and was quite helpful. Chabad of Poland was great for anything that I needed. Food, minyanim, and whatever you need

you go to tourist information, and buy a Jewish map from Warsaw.
See the Warsaw ghetto remains, the cemetery, etc.
The cemetery is a bit out, but all in walking distance from another.

Take a taxi at the airport, but a lot of swindlers, who seem helpful, will rip you off.

As at the little info booth (by the arrivals), what the price is, and deduct 20%.

Bargain down. If the guy gets a heart attack, you just bargain by the next guy and so on.

(If I sound mean, you might need to refreshen your memory a bit. yimach shemom vezichrom milehazkirom !)

 with 10 hrs down I woudlnt stay at the Airport eitehr

But nor would I go eat after all I should be getting fed on my flight to WAW and then again from WAW, Id rather spend the time seeing the City and the old Ghetto area, even thou they say WAW isnt nearly as nice as KRK (City wise)

 To each their own, as I said Id prefer to checkout a city I was never in and dont know when I will be back there , then to sit and eat

 keep in mind its not really 10 hrs. Its 10hrs probably from touch down to when the flight is to leave the Gate. Deduct the time youd need to get thru C&I and get into the City , the travel time back to WAW and to go thru Security, and usually its a good idea to have at least an hour before the flight departs and you went thru security. = alot less then 10 hrs free to roam, but still enough that it pays to get out of the Airport

understood ,

from what i here the airport is central and not far from chabad ,

i dont know how to begin to arrange a tour guide from here,

i thought my best bet would be to go to chabad and speak to them about having someone take me to the cemeterys.

there are over 600,000 jews buried in warsaw.

which prominant rabonim are buried in warsaw ??
