    Warsaw Transportation

    We took the train frm Krakow to Warsaw as all the locals told us not to take the bus. We decided to travel first class as second class is over full almost and when you have a bit of luggage, it is a great problem. It was worth the extra zloty that we paid. Much more comfortable and spacious and also not so full.

  • Train

    Krakow Transportation

    Trains are not really fast in Poland, with some exception on international routes and routes to Warsaw. Only slowly, rail services are improving, for example to Krakow Airport. Therefore, it is no surprise that many Poles still prefer the long-distance buses over the train with the buses often being far cheaper. Depending on train type, a trip may...

    I have flown from Krakow airport a couple of times and there are pros and cons about flying from there.

Main negative thing is that the transit area is way too small for the amount of...

    Warsaw Transportation

    I don't know why would any tourist want to rent a car in Warsaw, unless it is the base and starting point for driving outside the city. The parking issue in the center or the old town area is a real issue indeed. The public transportation system is more then just adequate. The "3 days pass" is a nice option, even after the last raise in prices from...
