Kevarim
Jewish cemetery near the Old Powazki. Established in 1809, it is one of the largest Jewish cemeteries in the world. Spread over an area of nearly 44,000 square feet (3160 square meters), the cemetery was left largely intact by the Nazis and includes the graves and tombs of a quarter of a million people, including the great Rabbanim of Warsaw as well as many secular giants in literature and the arts.

The Jewish Ghetto
The infamous Warsaw Ghetto, the scene of the only organized uprising.
On the left side of the Praga River, where the Ghetto used to be, you can visit several monuments commemorating the Jews of Warsaw, including the Monument over the Ghetto Heroes at Zamenhof Square, and Umschlagplatz, a memorial raised at the very spot where Warsaw Jews were gathered in 1943, loaded on cattle wagons and transported to the death camp at Treblinka. It is still possible to see how Jews lived in Warsaw ulica Prozna, a street left largely intact from before the Holocaust.

I plan on going to Auschwitz the morning of my 5:20PM departure from KRK, any insight on public transportation? Or are taxis cheap enough? (Having a rental up until then)

If it's for this weekend, you don't have much of a selection.

New meat restaurant opened in Krakow, called "Zelig's Place". Food looks delicious, and Hashgacha is Kedassiah from London.
Mad I didn't have time to go, but I heard it's amazing

Hi All
I have a bit of a situation on hand right now. I am on my way to Krakow on a flight via Amsterdam. I am supposed to be renting a car in Krakow and driving to many kivrei tzadikim with four others. I am the only driver. I could not find my wallet when I left New York so I do not have my drivers license on me. Essentially I cannot rent a car. Fortunately I have a duplicate in Boro Park. 
We are supposed to be going to Sanz tomorrow night for the Yur Tzeit from Krakow.
Does anyone here know someone that will be flying from NY to Krakow or Sanz today? I can have my ID card dropped off and I can pick it up anywhere in Krakow. I can also probably wing it to Sanz via Bus or train and pick it up from there. Please PM me.
 Thank you for your help.

i will be in Warsaw for about 24 hours arriving about 11pm at WAW (Chopin) and departing 11pm next day from WMI (Modlin). I am a bit confused about the public transport zones zone 1 and 2. Are there any maps which show where the zones start and finish? Thanks.

I'm looking at a 6:15 stopover in Warsaw. Is that long enough for a visit to the cemetery (and maybe even the shul or ghetto area), or not realistic? There's another flight with a longer layover, but it's more $ and the take-off/arrival times are less convenient.
