The train is only 5 mins walk from the airport, tickets can be bought on the train, only 1 stop and thats krakow centre so no problems there.
When you exchange money here ask for as low a denomination as poss as many shops do not like giving large amounts of change or large notes for small purchases.
The salt mines and Auschwitz were my highlights. Use the buses, we had a little difficulty finding the stop for the salt mines though. Auschwitz is easy by bus from the bus station and cheap.
Tram inspectors regularly board the trams, make sure your ticket is validated on the tram-also you need a ticket for your are carrying a suitcase or large holdall.
Enjoy! we had a great time, take a walk round the Jewish quarter, really interesting. The market square was fun in the evenings and during the day.
Hope that helps a bit.

Krakow is brilliant, I've been once with the gf (in winter) and once on a stag do (in summer) Summer is surprisingly hot, winter is not so surprisingly cold.

You can walk to the train stop from the airport, or I think there's a regular shuttle bus if you're unsure of direction.

There's quite a lot of tourist-y things to do (someone's already mentioned Aushwitz/Saltmines, food is cheap, alcohol and cigarettes are even cheaper.

I went for 5 nights then 3 nights, I'd say you're best for 4 or 5 nights if you've not been before. Depending on your budget, there are plenty of hotels, hostels are dirt cheap (I paid £10/night b&b), and more importantly, they're clean etc.

I paid £55 for 2 nights for 3 people in a great hotel via booking.com. I got the bus which was tad confusing especially the ticket machine and coming back to the aiport there less frequent so we ended up waiting about 60mins in the feezing cold!! i loved krakow tho thought it was really great place to go and auschwitz is pretty indescribable.. i found auschwitz easy to get to from the main train station but be warned get directions if yor going to take a bus becausethe train/bus station is huge!

I can't really remember to be honest - 4 nights maybe. We could easily have stayed longer as we went in August and the weather was glorious. They have all sorts of stuff going on. I strained a muscle in my leg clambering down some tower or other so we didn't go to the salt mines, but they are supposed to be great, as ^^. We didn't go to see a concentration camp; too macabre for us.

Oh there was a good supermarket 5 minutes away from that hotel and a shop selling the best olive oil soap ever - really.
