2 stations in Klodzko, Miasto in the centre and Glowny around a 15 minute walk from the centre. Many trains stop at the latter and are met by a shuttle into town - be aware! Also for trips over the border into Czech Republic tickets to the last Polish station are sold then buy a Czech ticket when the conductors swap from Polish to Czech, slightly confusing without many local language skills but, we got there!
By coach to Klodzko
Klodzko is the largest town on the road from Wroclaw to Prague and is well connected by coach and minibus. Connections on the polish side are very good with hourly service to Wroclaw and Zabkowice Slaskie. Kudowa Zdroj and some smaller places are served several times a day too. Even if you just plan to go for a daytrip: Do not buy return tickets! All buses are operated by different private companies which do not accept each other’s tickets. Buses with red signs do not stop at all stations but are some zlotys more expensive than thos with black signs. None of them guarantees a free seat. So you may be squeezed into a full bus where you don’t have to grab hold on anything as the mass of other passengers prevent you from falling down.
Travelling by coach in Poland is the most convenient way as domestic flights are still not affordable and train connections are somewhere between horrible and unacceptable. And although it is not really comfortable, it’s the best way to take part in polish everyday life.
