Arriving in Warsaw


While Warsaw is generally well linked with both the outside world and the rest of Poland, both road and rail networks have all undergone major regeneration work recently (in part thanks to Warsaw's hosting of the Euro 2012 football championships). The city's two major airports have also recently undergone major renovations and now arriving in Warsaw is as streamlined as it's ever been.

By Bus

If you come to Warsaw by bus, odds are you'll be landing at the main bus station on Al. Jerozolimskie, while budget options like PolskiBus drop passengers off a short distance from Metro Młociny.  

By Car

Warsaw is located in the heart of the country and has extensive road links with other major Polish cities. Having said that the competition on the road's front isn't fierce. Roads leading into Warsaw tend to be of decent dual carriageway standard, though once you enter the city limits Warsaw traffic can become a serious problem - particularly during the week. Most major hotels are located in the central area and you should be heading in most cases for the Central Train Station (Dworzec Warszawa Centralna) and its neighbour, the Palace of Culture (PKiN). Parking in the central area is generally available on-street where there are standard parking charges payable at roadside machines. Most major hotels will offer some form of off-road guarded parking. Be warned that Polish roads and Polish drivers are not the best especially if you have driven in western Europe.
