Poland Transport Guide

First up, just an FYI – you can’t fly direct to Poland. Generally, the cheapest way to reach Poland is to fly to London, Amsterdam or Frankfurt and then on to Warsaw. Once you’re in Poland, the transport is pretty good. Larger cities have better networks than smaller towns, but you can easily get around most places on buses, trams or trains.

How to get around Poland

One of the best ways to get around the country is by train. The rail network is convenient, well-organised and offers a great outlook to the Polish countryside. By rail, you can visit most of the cities and towns in Poland. All distance trains offer first- and second-class carriages, and also sleeper cars, which are handy if you want to save a bit of cash on accommodation. There are also great local bus services in every Polish town with connections to other cities too. In Warsaw, you’ll find an efficient subway system too. You can also travel by ferry in Poland with the main ports in Gdynia, Szczecin, Gdańsk and Świnoujście. But if you’d prefer to make your own way around Poland, there are plenty of places where you can hire a car, which are generally situated near the airports.
