Why McCoy? I hate replies like that...not clever...get in the way...and just rude.

Helloibrahim: explore-warsaw.com

Bus 175 goes from the airport to the center...the stop is right out in front of the terminals. Costs 3pln if you buy ticket on the bus or 2.80pln if you can find a kiosk and buy it. They also have c3 day tickets and city cards (ask at the tourist point about all options)

There are also tourist offices at the Central Train Station and airport....free maps and information.

Also once you get in Warsaw many public points and businesses in the center have a small guide book version of the above with all info about the city.

Poland may be a bit cheaper than Suomi but it is not "cheap".

What is your acceptable standard? There are a few hostels (45-200pln per night depending on giant dorm or private rooms) but all hotels will be expensive anywhere near the center >400pln usually.

You can eat very cheaply by shopping at supermarkets. Regular restaurants in the center would be 20-40pln for a dinner. You can get a sandwich and drink for maybe 10-15pln. Kebab from the street (good actually) 7-8pln.

Being an ass for money? I know a lot of people who would like to send in their CVs.

Actually it might be cheaper or the same to fly....and a LOT (get it?) quicker.

There should be some flights, to Warsaw at least... and If you want to take your own car then probably a ferry to Estonia and then through Latvia and Lithuania...

The cheapest way is probaby via Tallin.

Don't try trains! This will mean many changes!

There is direct eurolines bus from Tallin to Warsaw, probably everyday (I was last using it in June 2007).
You can book tickets at their website.The takes 19 hours.
The cost two years ago was about 40 euro one way + 20 euro ferry (but I was using student fares).

Cheapest planes wouldn't be cheaper than 100 euro. I was one flying with Blue One (cheap branch of SAS) but I don't know if this connection exists.

Best regards

Tallin

Tallin is such a nice city. And Tartu... I found it even nicer. The people are very talented!

For the bus connection, take look eurolines.ee or eurolinespolska.pl . You can buy tickets online and then just go to the bus station.

For the ferry (operate all year):
Viking Line
Tallink
Eckero Line

Then there are the companies operating the fast vessels, but these do not operate during the winter or bad weather (what is considered bad, is usually told on the company website).

Linda line (until 6.10.)
Superseacat

I was one flying with Blue One (cheap branch of SAS) but I don't know if this connection exists

Blue1 connection to Warsaw will not be operated during the winter, based on what I have hear from somewhere.
