Whenever I visit Tczew, I go to Mocca Restaurant which is situated in a tenement house in the market of the Old Town.
Recently I have had dinner with dessert (by the way, here in Poland we eat dinners during the day) and paid 36 PLN which is around 8 euro.
After lunch or dinner you can for a change go to a tea house which is opposite the restaurant.
Favorite Dish: My favourite dish is pork with potatoes and fried, soured cabbage.
Travelling to Tczew from Gdansk can be a tricky thing if you are going there by train. What I strongly recommend. It’s easy and you can take a bike with you. You can prolong your journey to Malbork (famous of the Teutonic Castle) or Elbląg or many small stops in Żuławy. Also, you can take a bus from a new bus station in Tczew, buy a ticket in a vending machine (in four languages!) and see Gniew.
There are many trains to Tczew, but be careful because some trains called “Przewozy Regionalne” or just “Regio” depart from platform one. The others called SKM depart from platform three. I live here and I am confused about it. What’s more - remember of different tickets in different ticket offices. Prices of tickets of both companies are the same.
Yesterday I was in the main hall of Gdansk Railway Station and was checking a train to Tczew and was about to buy a ticket, but the man in a ticket office directed me to platform three, where there is also a ticket office and a SKM train was just waiting and departed at 12.18. But a ticket of SKM is usually ( you can buy it in a ticket machine either and not needing of punching) a piece of paper which you HAVE TO punch in a yellow puncher.
The problem was with a delayed train which was stopped several times because tracks have been renovating thoroughly.
Be careful, the prices on the tickets on my photos are reduced by 37% but they are not expensive.
These printed ciphers on the first ticket are there because the ticket was validate properly by punching on the platform, outside the train not in a train.
General info on Polish trains you can find on: .
I recommend you to get a yellow trail / route. The trail is almost 80 km long and it stretches across Kociewie, an ethnic, local region. But if you fancy just a walk, you may get to Rokitki.
The signs of the trail you will see in front of the railway station. Go through the city which might not be so interesting, but soon you will find yourself in fields and meadows. Just after crossing rail tracks go along the canal. Anyway signs of the trail will direct you. I recommend to do it in summer when meadows are in flowers. I have done it recently. You can reach Rokitki and come back soon another way which is easily to find. Do not worry that you trespass somebody property. The law and customs about trespassing are not severe compared to other countries, which I love much here in Poland. Anyway the trail goes along public paths.
Come back to Tczew passing by a old windmill and get the Old Town. Have lunch or dinner in a Mocca resturant. Resturants offer meals even in “not eatable” / odds hours for many Western people like between 3 and 7 p.m. We, Polish have dinner during the day. After you will have eaten quite cheap but delicious meal and have some coffee, do some sighting in the historical part of the city. Another stroll to a nearby meadows across the river is just for you.
