If anybody is headed to Poland, don't leave without trying zapiekanka.

It's like a Polish pizza on a baguette. I've never had one but it looks delicious! Anybody ever had one?

hehehe, that's truth - polish zapiekanka's are delicious:) If you'll be in Cracow I recommend you to try the best zapiekanka in the world - it's served on Kazimierz district. There are few little ...let's call it shops with long queues all the time. Especially in the evening and weekend you have to stay in this queue, but it's surely worth it!:) You can get zapiekanka with mushroom, cheese, veg one, with polish sausage, with salami, tuna or fete...whatever you like, it's marvellous!:)

Agreed. Best zapiekanka's in the world are from the hole in the wall in the little rotunda in Nowy Plac, Kazimierz, Krakow!

Good zapiekankas smile.gif are on the corner of Bernardynska and Stradomska. You can eat delicious zapiekanka and knysza (dainty from Nowa Huta) in few places in Cracov`s quarter Nowa Huta. They are cheaper than the same food from center areas.

Knysza is something like mega big hamburger, like bread with two beef cutlets and some vegetables. You can buy small knysza and big knysza:). Unfortunaly I dont have any photo of it.

For me, pics which you found shows kebab, not knysza. Knysza is much bigger:)But sometimes they sell normal kebab, knysza is only the name. Remember, real knysza only in Nowa Huta (os. Zloty Wiek for example)
