Hi,

In couple of weeks i am moving to Katowice. but unfortunately there is no direct flight here from india. But was able to manage to reach to the Warsaw and from there i am planning to have train to Katowice. Flight will land there at 5:00 PM but i am afraid if there any train runs on same schedule ! Anyone, could you please suggest me with train timing and i also heard there are different train runs with different prices! and is it possible to have have current ticket rather then book on internet!

I also Need a kind favor here, is anyone able to suggest me a economy hotel name with the cocking facility! i tried on Hotels and booking. but didnt find any feasible option!

Many thanks in Advance.

From the airport you may chatch a train or bus (line 175) to the station Warszawa Centralna (main train station in Warsaw).

All the train timetables you will find at: rozklad.sitkol.pl

5:00 PM is not late and there is many trains on this route, I think you will find something for sure.

You can buy ticket on the station without any problem (or even enter the train without ticket, then you just pay 10 PLN more). The cheapest trains are IR and TLK. EIC are more expensive, but also of higher comfort level.

And remember to buy a proper ticket for specific train category, especially in case of IR, which is run by a different company than TLK and EIC.

Not quite. If you enter the train without a ticket, you absolutely MUST report immediately to the conductor in the first, or sometimes last, car, or you will pay A LOT more as you will be fined if you don't.

Are there new rules for this? It wasn't always easy to find conductors and a few times I just mentioned I needed a ticket as soon as he opened the door to the compartment (and I've seen other people do the same) and the extra charge wasn't larger than usual.

There might be other rules for a non-Polish speaking obvious foreigner I guess.

Hotels around here don't offer kitchen facilities, you'll need to stay in a hostel if you want to use a kitchen.
there's a few around, but I've no idea whether they're any good or not:

Re: trains...just look up the time of your train, write it down and show it to the person in the ticket kiosk....coz the chances of her speaking English are slim and none. Train takes between 2Hr30m-2Hr50ms, it isn't expensive.

Polski bus also go from Warsaw to Katowice, it's really cheap, but it takes a long time.

For sure it is so in Regio, InterRegio and 2nd class TLK. I am not sure about 1st class of TLK.
