    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    On arriving at Torun Glowny rail station, to get to town by bus , buy a ticket from the kiosk for about 2.80 zlote. Bus number 22 or 27 takes you over the bridge over the Wisla river into town. To walk would take over half an hour. To use the bus in town buy a ticket at the shop or kiosk near the bus stop, then validate on board bus.

    Getting into town.

    Coming to Torun by train, you will most probably arrive in Torun Glówny, which is the main station. From there it is easy to get to town, just catch bus nr 22, 25 or 27, they all have end stop here. You buy tickets from a little kiosk outside the station. Just remember that you have to buy it before boarding the bus, because the drivers won't sell tickets at all, and there are plenty of ticket controls the day round. And do validate your ticket immediately after boarding since I have seen these controllers in action and, well, they are no nice to deal with if I put it like that... They range from small ladies to beefy skinhead-like guys with kick-to-kill boots.

    In the South and East of Poland we drove but in the north we decided to use the train, so we took a train from Warsaw to Torun
    The ticket cost 78 zl in first class and it took us two hours and a half.
    It was a very comfortable and pleasant journey
    At Torun station , take a bus and in ten minutes you cross the Vistula and leave you in the old part of town
    From here we took the train to Malbork and Gdansk
    You may have problems when you buy the tickets , as in the stations except in Warsaw , not many people speak English , but if you write the name of the stations in a paper and you show it in the ticket office you will not have any problem as the personnel is very helpful


    En el Sur y en el Este de Polonia viajamos en coche pero en el Norte decidimos utilizar el tren , así que en Varsovia tomamos un tren para Torun
    El billete nos costó 78 zl en primera y tardamos dos horas y media .
    Fue un viaje muy cómodo y agradable
    En la estación de Torun se toma un autobús que en diez minutos cruza el río vístula y te deja en en la parte antigua de la ciudad
    Desde aquí tomamos un tren a Malbork y a Gdansk
    Puedes tener problemas cuando vayas a comprar los billetes , pues en las estaciones excepto en Varsovia , no habla mucha gente en Inglés , pero si escribes el nombre de la ciudad en un papel y lo enseñas en la taquilla no tendrás ningún problema pues el personal seguro que intenta ayudarte

    Trains connect Torun with many Polish cities quite well, Gdansk is 3hrs 30 away, Warsaw 2hrs 30, for Krakow catch the night train. When you arrive at Torun station, you will not be in the centre, the station is south of the river and the exits are very confusing.

    To get to and from the main train station, just walk outside and buy a ticket for the bus at the little stand that says "RUCH" in yellow letters on a green background. Whenever you see this sign in Poland, it means you can buy public transportation tickets. Anyway, here in Torun, you'll want to get on either bus 22 or bus 27 and it will take your right across the bridge to the Old Town (get out at the first stop after you cross the bridge).

    I took the train from Warsaw to Torun arriving here at the main station ("glowny" means "main") in around 2 hours 45 minutes. The ride in 2nd class was comfortable. Check out the second picture to see what the interior of the train cabin looked like. The station is about 2 km outside on the Old Town across the bridge on the other side of the Vistula River.
