Travel Time By Train - Warsaw to Wroclaw.

Hi All,

Next month I'll be making my third trip to Poland to see my girlfriend in Warsaw. On my first two trips, we traveled by train to Krakow and the Tatra Mountains in Zakopane. We had an awesome time. We're thinking of going to Wroclaw on this next trip by train. Can someone tell how long the trip is from Warsaw to Wroclaw? Is there a better/faster way to travel there? I wouldn't mind renting a car and driving there. However, I understand that driving in Poland can be hair-raising experience.

Any thoughts?

It would take 6 hours by train to get to Wroclaw from Warsaw central station.

You can also fly there by lot... if you have many money :)

6 hours? That's a long time on a train. How long is it by car?

I would take the train in this case. About the same time as by car but so much more relaxed.
In 1st class you have a pretty comfortable ride... read your paper.... buy a cold Tyskie in the restaurant rail car(they will always sell you that, and yes it is not on the official menu :) ) smile at the pretty girl opposite you.... read your book...

Only madmen would go by car.
Or book a plane ticket well in advance, small difference with a IC ticket first class,

Consider also flying instead to Krakow rather than Warsaw. There is a train that connects that Krakow airport with the main train station in Krakow. The train trip from Krakow to Wroclaw is about 4 hours.

If you are set on Warsaw, the PKP schedule shows a train leaving Warsaw Central at 22:50 arriving at 5:21. There is another that leaves at 00.35 arriving at 7:39. This requires a transfer at Katowice; the stop over there is only 14 minutes so this transfer doesn't add much time to the trip. Good luck.

try this site:
(4 language versions available, Polish, English, German, French).

On Saturday evening, 18th July 2009, the best trains are, as Lori wrote, 22:50 (the only direct connection) and 0:30 (usually at 0:35, but on Saturdays 5 minutes earlier)
prices around 52-54 PLN for 2nd class (the earlier train has also 1st class compartments which cost about 77 PLN), so you'll pay more for a taxi from the airport to the city center (if you're not careful) :(

Btw, try to use one of those "radio-taxi" companies (usually a short, 4 digit phone number, like 5656 or 5912) their prices are much more reasonable

Hello everybody,
thanks for your answer.
I can not take the intercity because i need to make the trip in the morning and there are only tickets for the afeternoon.
I see an EuroCity train that would be ok in the pkp page, but it only shows you the details of the trip, prize, etc but I do not see how to buy the ticket.

Cal you help me?
Thank you
