Hi,

I am planning on taking a PKP train to the Warsaw Centralna station and I am trying to find a map of it so I know where to go to buy a bus ticket for 175 line since I am going to the airport. I have tried Googling around and can not find it.

I know there are multiple levels there and would like to see a map that covers each level. The last thing I want is to get lost in that place.

Thanks :)

i tried to find it for you, but no luck...
maybe it's just easy to get around and nobody needs a map... ?

A map, this is Poland mind you, that would be making things too easy;)

Never heard of a map of the place, but you can buy a bus ticket at almost any kiosk. IIRC the bus to the airport is on the train station side of aleje jerozolimskie sort of across from Marriot.

Give yourself lots of wandering around time practice saying "w jakim kierunku jest autobus na lotnisko?" and go for a while in the direction that people point at. Repeat until you find it.

There are shorter, better ways of asking if you speak Polish well, but in my days of guerrilla direction I found ='w jakim kierunku' works well because then people will usually point, whereas if I asked 'gdzie jest....' they give verbal descriptions that I didn't understand.

You don't need a map. The station is 2 levels: underground and the main hall.
Also, besides a bus you could take a tram.

Warszawa Centralna train station is very easy. You don't need a map of the station because there are only 4 platforms and main hall ;)

Some Tips.

Go to maps.google.com and search for: 52.228343,21.003649 (it is 175 bus stop waiting area)
Then make a big satellite zoom of place marked by green arrow and study the map.
Every bus stop have unique name. You need to catch the 175 bus from the DW. CENTRALNY 02. Look for the big black letters on the white background with "DW. CENTRALNY 02"

Note that the name of the bus stop is DW. CENTRALNY 02 - NOT 03 or 04. Must be 02!

Buy ticket in ticket machine. Exiting the train station you will pass some ticket machines. There is one machine on this bus stop as well as in every 175 bus inside the car.

You'll need ticket for 2,80 PLN. You can use this machine in english language. Remember about validating the ticket in validator right you enter the bus. It's one way adult fare without time limits.

Just follow the directions posted on signs or leave at any exit and find "Mariot Hotel" which is 140m tall tower in front of the train station but on the oposite side of the bus stop. The bus stop you need is by the side of train station NOT Mariot Hotel!

Type in the address or just the street name and see the photo of the building and its location on the city map. Not all buildings show photos but there are 70,000 of them.

Just the name and number: Krucza 7
