About Andrew Pawlowski

I was born in the United States, to parents who emigrated from Poland. I fell in love with Poland, and Krakow most so. In addition, I have close family living in Krakow, and I travel there often.

Andrew Pawlowski purchased this apartment in 2006

Why Andrew Pawlowski chose Wesoła Zachód

I chose Krakow because I fell in love with the city, and have close family there. There is so much to see and do, and the atmosphere is magical. From sightseeing; to museums; to skiing or mountainclimbing or hot springs nearby Zakopane, which is a day trip away; there is something for everyone.

What makes this apartment unique

The location is perfect- close to the Main Square (with St. Mary's, the Cloth Hall, etc.); still walking distance to Wawel Castle, Kazimierz, many other attractions.

Zakopane, Poland

Krakow (Cracow), Poland, Europe (In Downtown Krakow, Minutes by Foot from the Main Square) One of the many advantages of this apartment is its great location. It is situated just next to the main square, on the North side; and within close reach is the Wawel castle, the wonderfully-developing neighborhood of Kazimierz, as well as the main train station. Athena is located in a quiet building, inhabited mostly by foreign residents.

Other Activities: shopping, health/beauty spa, sightseeing, museums, restaurants

Ski: Skiing is available near Zakopane during the winter season. The town is reachable best by bus (~2-3 hours ride), available at the bus station (~10 minute walk from the apartment).

Lovely located warm apartment.

  • 4 of 5

We took the train from the airport to Krakow, this was straight forward, then walked to the apartment. Met by the cleaners who didn't speak a word of English. However we managed to get through. Very clean and extremely warm apartment. Just three friendly suggestions, blinds need changing both were broken. Bigger duvet on bed. And some useful telephone numbers, e.g. Doctors, Emergency numbers. Don't rely on the television no English Channels this didn't matter to us. Great location walking distance to most things, supermarket two minutes away. We used free walking tours, one to Jewish Quarters and one of the Old Town. Both very informative and interesting. Visited Salt Mines tried to make our own way there but this didn't work out. Used one of the tours, a must to visit. Five days was long enough, although we didn't see everything. Would recommend this apartment to friends and family

Terrific Flat in a great location

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was our home base for our 3 night stay in Krakow. It is in a great location that is within walking distance to the town center, the Wawal castle, and plenty of food and drinking establishments. There is also a small grocery store less than 1 block away. The flat was clean, spacious, and came complete with washing machine and wifi. If we come back to Krakow we will definitely consider staying at this flat again.

Great apartment in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is located in walking distance of the old town square and we walked almost everywhere. It's was very quiet even though it was on the first floor, and there is small grocery store right down the block. We arrived early in Krakow and were allowed to check in early since they didn't have anyone in the apartment before us. We got there and the cleaning lady gave us the keys, she didn't speak much English, but soon we got call from Andrews cousin (building manager) and he communicated with us and we were on our way without a hitch. The apartment was clean and well maintained. We loved the location. We would stay here again if we go back to Krakow.
