You have to travel a little more than 10 kilometers to get to the city center. The airport is well connected to the city thanks to numerous buses and three lines on iron. Tickets can be purchased at the Passenger Service Center, located in the airport arrivals hall; alternatively, through the numerous vending machines or directly from the bus driver.

Five bus linesinstead, they allow you to comfortably reach the center. These are the buses 175, 188, 148, 331, and finally the N32 night line.

Il SINGLE DO TRANSFER TICKETS allows you to make unlimited trips to the 1 and 2 areas. It costs 7,00PLN (about 1,70 €), and lasts 90 minutes from first use. For those who plan to use public transport, there are excellent and convenient solutions.

central Warsaw It is the main train station, served by medium and long-distance trains. It was the first railway station built in the city. Several daily connections with Germany, the Czech Republic and some states of the former Soviet Union. From here, the EUROCITY trains leave for Berlin and Frankfurt (Oder). Then there are other 5 medium-sized railway stations that connect the suburbs of the city.


The Polish capital is about 600 kilometers from Berlin. From Prague, in the Czech Republic, you have to travel over 600 kilometers, many of them on a motorway stretch. From Vienna, passing through Bern, it is about 340 kilometers. We report the presence of numerous speed cameras on most of the motorway section; therefore, you are invited to respect speed limits.

The distances from Italy, France and, above all, Spain, are really too many. We invite you to consider the car option only in the case of a tour that includes several stages.
