  • Wander the streets ...

    I'm afraid I don't know what this building is -- maybe one of the locals can help? -- it's between the end of ul. 3 Maja and the Castle -- but it's a good example of the sort of architecture you can see when wandering the streets.

  • Old Town Castle

    If you follow ul. 3 Maja away from the Rynek end, you'll eventually come to the Old Town Castle. It dates back to the end of the 16th century, but following recent renovation it looks brand new. In the past it's been used as a jail, but it's now the law courts.

Rzeszow Nightlife

  • A little in piece of the Emerald isle in...

    When I first went into this pub for the very first time, I found it to be a warm and inviting place just like any real Irish pub. Even though this pub is an Irish theme pub, the place has an individual quality all of its own. There are very few native English speakers in Rzeszow, but if you're looking for some, this will be the place to find them....

    Becuse nightclubs and bars are usually full at weekend evenings so crawling from one place to another becomes a kind of nightlife itself. When I am going out with my friends we usually all meet at The City Hall at 8 and we decide where to go. You won't find anything unusual in in this town unless you have a little couriosity in the way people live...

Rzeszow Transportation

  • Air service convenient and accessible

    I flew out of Poland using Rzeszow airport for the first time. It's big enough to have a sophisticated assortment of services within the terminal and yet small enough to be very easily explored. I found it clean, pleasant, and comfortable... as well as having plenty of convenient flights connecting to other cities in Europe. It's a joy to find an...

  • Good train connections

    Seems as if you can make good train connections from all directions thru Rzeszow. The train stations seemed confusing to me because I don't speak the language and I found the schedules on the wall pretty useless for this reason. I would suggest that you know which train you want and be ready to ask for the right ticket. We were lucky to have people...

    Helpful taxi driver

    by Pawtuxet Updated Jul 21, 2009

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Michael was the taxi driver we engaged for a half day out of Rzeszow. It was a short drive to Kolbuszowa, and he was as helpful as could be with his limited English. The hotel clerk said he enjoyed practicing his English, so he is enthusiastic about tourists like us. We all had lunch in a little neighborhood restaurant in Kolbuszowa..he helped us with the menu, and everyone seemed to get a bang out of these crazy Americans. They were so delighted to have us seeking out their little town. Michael was the first to find a gravestone w/ my family's name...he got right into the swing.

Rzeszow Warnings and Dangers

  • Polish Streets and Roads

    by darren_st Written Nov 28, 2005

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    You need to be careful when walking around the streets of Rzeszow. It's actually illegal to cross the road at points that are not designated crossing points. You can see the correct points designated by zebra style crossings, although cars don't have to stop when they see you waiting to cross. Always wait until the 'green man' comes on to advise you to cross the road. Crossing before this happens could also land you in trouble with the police.

    Although generally roads in Rzeszow in main areas are quite good, the roads and pathways the less busy parts of Rzeszow are not very well maintained. Always take care walking the streets, its very easy to trip on a loose paving slab or broken tarmac. I know from experience.

Rzeszow Off The Beaten Path

  • Solina lake is the place,...

    by Wlad Written Aug 26, 2002

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Solina lake is the place, where I am trying to be at each holiday. It is just 3 hours by coach (PKS) or 1,5h by car. Most of people come and basically enjoy their times at the beaches or in the pubs. But if you know how to run a boat,you can experience sailing from POlanczyk village, to Chrewt or to Solina village. There are some touritships alternatively. There is something for the pub crawlers as well, lot of open - air parties, and some pubs and discos as well. Energetyk's island is a place where I usually put up my tent. Nice climat and 'real' sailing culture.
