The last leg of my journey to Easter Europe was Prague. So if you are ever in Krakow, Poland and want to visit Prague and don't want to spend 115.00 for a one way over night train ticket to Prague; option 2 is lots more fun and cheaper. 
For those who want a little adventure this route is for you. 
So about your way to Prague it looks like this: Take the bus to Cieszyn, Poland from the Krakow bus station at 5:45pm. For the next few hours take in the countryside and bond with the local Poles getting on and off the bus.  You arrive in Cieszyn, Poland at 9:00pm. To get to the Tesin Silesia train station on the other side of the boarder of the Czech Republic, you will need to walk about 20 mins. On the way, stop by Cieszyn Main Square to have your last Tyskie beer to say goodbye to Poland. To get to the train station on the Czech Republic side make a right at the drop off on to Bobrecka then a another right on Garncarska that leads to the Cieszyn Main Square. From the square take a right to Plac Wolności and then straight up passing Słowackiego Street, 3 Maja Street and Wolności Bridge  (it is the broader). Walk straight pass the bridge for 5 mins. and make a left on Stzrelnicza, the train station is just head. Once at the station grab the midnight train to Prague that takes 5 hours. Just remember to get some sleep on your way to Prague so that you can be nice and refresh to keep the good times rolling. :)

Keep in mind that you are visiting a special play because Cieszyn Silesia or Těšín Silesia or Teschen Silesia is a historical region in southeastern Silesia, centered around the towns of Cieszyn and Český Těšín and bisected by the Olza River. Since 1920 it has been divided between Poland and Czechoslovakia, and later the Czech Republic. It has about 810,000 inhabitants.
