GETTING TO AND AROUND WARSAW 

By Plane

The Warsaw Chopin Airport (www.lotnisko-chopina.pl) is one of the most-connected airports within Europe, with direct connections to every EU capital, as well as many non-EU capitals. The airport is served by almost every major European airline, be it flag carriers or low-fare airlines. The airport is located about 10 km from the city centre and is conveniently connected with major railway and bus stations.

 

By Train

Warsaw has three stations with international and domestic long-distance connections. There are many direct connections to Eastern as well as Central and Western European cities.
– Warszaw Centralna (Warsaw Centre), Aleje Jerozolimskie 54
Located in the heart of the city, it is reachable from all districts of Warsaw. All long-distance trains pass through this station and all stop there.
– Warszawa Zachodnia (Warsaw West), Aleje Jerozolimskie 144
Thanks to its location right next to the international bus station, it’s a good point for people taking long-distance (both national and international) buses.
– Warszawa Wschodnia (Warsaw East), ul. Lubelska 1
The station is located on the Praga side of the river.

By Bus

The bus station Dworzec PKS Warszawa Zachodnia at Aleje Jerozolimskie 144 offers international and national connections. Tickets for national and international routes can be purchased at ticket offices at the station and on the website www.e-podroznik.pl.

 

By Taxi

Taxis in Warsaw are easily available and not too expensive, costing 8zł flag fall and 3/4.50zł per kilometre during the day/night within the centre. Reliable companies include MPT Radio Taxi, which has English-speaking dispatchers, Super Taxi, and Halo Taxi. All are recognizable by signs on the taxi's roof with the company name and phone number. All official taxis in Warsaw have their meters adjusted to the appropriate tariff, so you just pay what the meter says.

By Metro

Yellow signs with a red letter 'M' indicate the entrances to Metro stations. You'll find it hard to miss the station entrances on the east-west line, which each resemble a giant letter 'M'. Riding the Metro, you use the same tickets as on trams and buses but validate the ticket at the gate at the entrance to the platform, not inside the vehicle. Trains run approximately every eight minutes (every four minutes during rush hours).
