Time to say ‘do widzenia’ (goodbye) to Kraków for a second time and take the comfy modern PKP Intercity train (60.30PLN) to Poznań, which was supposed to leave at 12:47hrs, although it was 10 minutes late. There’s even a bar and dining carriage on the train for this 7-hour journey; very lush.

The train arrived in the main station…this is one flash impressive station, it’s like a small airport.
