It takes about 50 minut to get to the center.

single ticket cost 23 zł

here you have a map, where you can get off the bus

Thats extortionate, if theres more than two he may as well catch a taxi. I dont know exact distances, well actually i do hang on, yep here we go - 45 KM around 38 minutes drive time. I knew it was a long way, its not really Katowice at all. Should be around 80 PLN for a taxi, that is a none rip off merchant of course.

Belive me, when I saw the price that was my reaction too. You can check it here:

If you have enough money to spend it woud be reallmy more comfortable to take taxi. Especially that bus station is closed 'couse they're rebuildin it, and it woud be harder to find the right way to the hotel. The taxi woud take you straight there

nope lads, get the bus, last time I got a taxi it cost well over 100zl....although then again you'll be coming with euros or pounds so it'll cost ya feck all I suppose, if you're on a budget though take the bus, they only go once per hour but there's a few cafes to get a pint in while you wait

Maybe next time they will write a script with Katowice spelled Kahtoveetsuh. I cringed every time he mispronounced the name!
