    By car to Tarnow

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Tarnow is 80km East of Krakow, along the E-40 international road. This would be the first town that we would visit after hiring our car at Krakow airport.

    We had a Sat Nav with us, that was invaluable during our road trip (especially with the detours that we were to make due to the flooding), and we soon found a parking spot near the centre of town.

    Tarnow Town Centre has limited parking zones

    Parking is only allowed in the designated areas. These are found in the following streets-

    Narutowicza – Konarskiego – Dąbrowskiego - Kołłątaja - Starodąbrowska – Słoneczna – Sitki – Słowackiego - Nowy Świat – Solidarności – Szujskiego – Szkotnik - Mościckiego – Pułaskiego – Krakowska

    Tickets are valid for an allocated time - 30 mins/60/120/ etc.

    18.00 - 08.00 daily, and all day Sundays are free - no tickets are needed.

    They can be bought from shops, such as the one we used, or machines.

    Driving in Poland it is compulsory to have headlights on at all times when driving.

    As always-ensure your car is locked, windows closed and valuables removed from view, when leaving it, even for a short period of time.

    It is very easy to get to Tarnów by train from Kraków and there are different options to choose from depending on if you prefer the faster or the cheaper connections. Distance is 78 km, the journey takes from 1h 31min to 2h 2min and the cost ranges from 16 to 29 Pln in 2nd class or 1st class respectively. There are ~30 trains all around the clock, all of which are direct.
    Type Kraków Glówny for Kraków but only Tarnów for Tarnów, there is no Glówny there. Glówny means main station.
    The railway station in Tarnów is situated ~1 km south-west of the city centre

    A one day trip from Krakow

    by gosiaPL Written May 3, 2004

    Tarnow is just 82km (about 50 miles) east of Krakow, on the main E40 road half way between Krakow and Rzeszow. Easy to get to if you hire a car.

    Also easy to get to by train or bus from Krakow, and not a long ride. Perfect for a one day trip from there :-)

    The train and bus stations are next to each other. It's about a 15 minute walk up ul. Krakowska to the Rynek.

    Trains from Krakow (86km) are approximately every 2 hours - other services to Rzeszow (80km); Nowy Sacz (89km); Warsaw (396km).

    Buses to Krakow (86km); Zamosc (238km); Krosno (83km); and other destinations.

    It is really easy to go by train to Tarnow. You need to take a direction to Przemysl or just a local train going to Tarnow as a destination. However, local trains during the weekdays are usually crowded as many people commute to/from Krakow. The train ticket is around 15-18 PLN from Krakow one way.
