Hi, people!
I should be going to Poland next August, and need some information. I will arrive by train to Warsaw Central Train Station from Belgrade. So, I need a (if possible) detailed instruction how to reach the Warsaw airport by public transport, and how much does the transport tickets in Warsaw cost. Also, what is the relation between Euro and Polish zlot?

Thank you very much in forward!!!

Hello baki,
that's easy - you just take bus no 175 from the train station and it goes straight to the terminals (check the direction: it should go towards "Port lotniczy im. F. Chopina") . The travel time is around 20 minutes (if there's no traffic; when the traffic is huge, it may be up to 1hour :/). The cost of the ticket is 2,40 for an adult, to be on the safe side you may also buy an additional ticket for the luggage (2,40, same as for you) - theoretically, you don't need it anymore, but there are still ticket inspectors who will have a huge problem if you travel with a big bag without the additional ticket.

Relation Euro - PLNs is about 1 Euro = 3,80 PLN

Thank you very much! This info is very important to me, in order, not to get lost in the midst of an unknown city!

Few? I can't agree...

Try this: hot.spots.pl/eng/ - Hot Spots

or this: computerworld.pl/hotspot/1.html

this one is good (but in polish language only): wardrive.pl/maps.php?city=20 - wardrive

There is at the moment no train station in Warsaw airport. Correction - there is one under Terminal 2, just finished, but it has as yet no rail link to the main line.

Public transport to the city center: take bus 175 and prepare for traffic jams.
Taking a taxi will result in a much more expensive journey.... not much longer as the bus.
And beware of pickpockets on the 175 - it is notorious they tell...

another way is to take a tram to okencie and then a taxi from there

walk

taxi

could be expensive

bus

probably the best option.

Bus the regular bus is okay as long as you have your tickets (buy them in the airport you can't buy them in the bus itself) and keep your wits about you.

There used to be (and may still be) a special, more expensive shuttle bus DO NOT TAKE IT!!!! Everything I've ever heard is that it's far less safe than the regular 175 (which I've taken a number of times with no ill effects).

Also taxis have a habit of trying to rip off foreigners, even if traffic is a little heavy anything over 50 zloties to the train station is a complete rip off.

If this helps.... In Dec I flew into Warsaw a/p arriving in the morning. Took a taxi to central train station and caught one of the many trains running to Krakow. This was on a Saturday. Easy. Did the reverse on the way back. When a tad confused I found the Poles very helpful.

IMHO there are no direct flight and most popular transfer airports are Frankfurt (Lufthansa) and Istambul (Turkish Airlines). Warsaw as other big cities has a lot to offer (depends what you like) but I strongly recommend Old City, Lazienki Park, Wilanow because those are Warsaw highlights.

I know Frankfurt is a main hub for many non European arrivals and departures so you might be able to fly into there and then get a connecting flight to Warsaw.
