This weed-choked, muddy, graffiti-strewn shambles is the 'luxury' Polish camp site where England football fans have paid nearly 100 GBP a night to stay during the Euro 2012 tournament.
These new pictures show that with just days to go before the fans arrive, the site is still an overgrown dump, used by local down and outs to doss down in and take drugs.
The Pole Position campsite is billed as the best place for fans and families to stay in Krakow, on the other side of the city from where the England team will be staying in five star luxury at the Stary Hotel.
"There are three accommodation zones: for families, couples and fans.
"Bathroom facilities Football street - bars, shops, restaurants; Fun Club breakfasts and dinners for campsite guests; Free WIFI," boasts the camp website.
But these exclusive pictures show that the only facility on site so far seems to be run-down bar with a few tables scattered outside.
And supporters would have to walk for more than a mile to get to the nearest Fan Zone where they can watch matches on giant TV screens.
"There aren't even any tents, let alone any facilities. This place is a dump," said one critic.
City officials claim the camp has a licence, but describe it as "low quality".
Pole Position spokesman Jan Wroblewski, told local media: "We will set up a tent serving breakfast and dinners four or five days before the games start.
"We will also provide tents, and campers can use the local shops."
