Nice wee bridge over the Odra river. Plenty of padlocks on it. Gas lamps beside it. Nice place to take a picture.

Hello, I am planning to take a river cruise that ends up in Budapest. Would it be difficult to get to Krakow and spend a few days and do some tours there and then to Prague for several more days. We speak only English. Thank you for any assistance you can give!
