Kaliningrad to Gdansk Transport

I'm really struggling to arrange transport between Kaliningrad and Gdansk/Sopot after the England v Belgium World Cup match in June. Buses are fully booked, and it doesn't look there's an option on the train. Any ideas anyone?

Any ideas anyone?

Take a train from Gdańsk to Olsztyn, then from Olsztyn to Braniewo. From there, get a taxi to the Russian border. You can't walk across the border, but just look for someone willing to let you come with them across the border for some cash (20zł should do it). From the other side, you should be able to agree a lift into Kaliningrad with someone.

edit: just seen that you want to do it in reverse. In that case, get a taxi from Kaliningrad city to the border, then just get someone to take you across, then train from Braniewo to Gdańsk.

There may be some train from Kaliningrad to Mamonovo (next to the border), but I'm not sure.

edit 2: Yeah, there's a train from Kaliningrad to Mamonovo, three per day. You can try that, but it'll probably be easier to just get a taxi to take you straight to the border - should be no more than 25-30 Euro.

I saw, I edited my post twice ;)

Another ninja edit: There's apparently plenty of buses and minibuses (called mashrutka) running from Kaliningrad station to Mamonovo - so you should have no problem getting to the border. Hitching a ride with someone across the border is normal, so just ask around until someone agrees to take you. 20 złoty / 5 Euro should do the job.

If we are talking about a hitchhiking after the match, you should look for fan buses for a free spot.
Or go for Park+Ride area to find someone who travels to Gdansk as well.

Or Sopot, I've recently heard that a bunch of Russians regularly travel from Kaliningrad to the Tri-City (Gdańsk-Sopot-Gdynia) but mostly to Sopot.
