International Airport

by yvr

Is there a ticket machine or information kiosk located inside the arrivals hall or nearby outside for the bus 175? Thanks

Re: International Airport

by alancollins

Hi,
Just inside the arrivals entrance in the Main Terminal (not the Etiuda Terminal) there is a Ruch Shop. They sell various bus tickets and are very helpful.

From arrivals hall in new terminal (international scheduled flights) go out from the door and turn right, for about 80 meters/yards. Last door of the old terminal is the exit door of what used to be the arrivals hall of the old terminal. Go inside, look to your right side. Second booth is the information point, third one is newspaper kiosk marked RUCH (yallow/green letters). Here and all over the city you can buy tickets in these RUCH kiosks/stands.
From Etiuda terminal (local and budget flights) go outside to the left for about 150 meters, to the same old terminal door.
There are "all day", "3 days" and "weekly/7days" tickets, good for all means of public transport including trams (electric street car) and metro. Don't forget to valit the ticket on your first ride, because the inspectors well and firmly build and have no mercy.

Travel Tips for Warsaw

Polish Money - the Zloty

by dlytle

The Polish currency is called the ‘zloty’ and abbreviated as zl or pln. One zloty = 100 groszy.

Polish coins have values of 1, 2, 5, 10 or 50 groszy and 1, 2 or 5 zloty. The Polish paper money have values of 10, 20, 50, 100 and 200 zloty. Unfortunately, current inflation is pretty high per year in Poland.

In October 2004, when I visited Poland, the value was 1.00 US Dollar (USD) = 3.3862 Polish Zloty (PLN).

You will find exchange money offices called ‘kantor’ in almost all Polish towns, usually in the center of the town. Their exchange rate is known to be better than in a bank, hotel or in the exchange ‘kantors’ at the airports. Be very careful about exchanging money on the street as you are at risk of receiving counterfeit money and you are also an easy victim of robbery or the many pickpockets.

Electricity in Poland

by dlytle

The electric current in Poland is 220 Volts AC, 50 Hertz. So European plugs are required to convert American appliances. One might also have to have a transformer (or two) in order to operate some 110-volt common travel appliances. It is very wise to pick up an electrical accessories kit at a luggage shop in the USA before you travel overseas. Another option is to purchase these kits online.

I personally use a PowerLine Electronics Accessories kit (0900-27). I also travel with a RadioShack 1600 watt Multi-Nation Travel Adapter (catalog number 273-1413). This converts 220/240VAC to 110/120VAC and is very convenient to use.

On a more mundane note, I have been told that short term power outages are not uncommon making using appliances in Poland all the more exciting.

Warsaw Tip

by DrewV

While wandering, we visited the impressive Warsaw Uprising Memorial, a moving tribute to the everyday Poles who fought in the sewers and cellars against the Nazis. In August 1944, the Poles of Warsaw decided to rebel against their Nazi conquerors. The Soviet Army was rapidly approaching from the East and the Poles rightfully understood that if they had to rely on Soviet assistance in liberation, they would only be trading one overlord for another. So the people took to the streets and for two months, they struggled valiantly against the Nazis. Throughout it all, the Red Army sat across the Vistula River. The commanding general asked to assist, but Stalin firmly refused. After 250,000 Poles had been killed, the Uprising ended with the complete and utter destruction of the city street by street by the vindictive Nazi army.

Warsaw School of Economics

by gale.blog.pl

This is probably the best state-owned economic university in Poland. People who graduated from this school can easily find a job, which is very important as currently in Poland we have a 19% unemployment.

Drink Zywiec Beer like the locals!

by dlytle

Zywiec Beer advertising is everywhere in Poland and I guess that is why Zywiec is Poland’s best selling beer with the local brewery having been established in 1856. As you walk along you’ll see advertising signs along the streets and especially in the Old Town.

My tastes go for a light, savory smooth tasting beer. I am not into harsh, bitter beers. I found that Zywiec was a pleasant tasting beer suited to my tastes. Zywiec has a pleasant golden hue and is full of flavor but remains light in character. When I asked some questions about my first visit to Poland in a VT forum, Zywiec’s virtues were mentioned to me by several of the men who responded back to my questions. I think that says something about its popularity.

And thinking about beer, I believe that a great place to enjoy a Zywiec Beer is in Warsaw’s Old Town Market Square. That is where I had my first taste of this ubiquitous beer. The beer tasted good and the ambiance of Old Town was remarkable.
