Despite the fact that Wrocław’s tram and bus network is incredibly easy to use, even for foreigners, we’ll still admit to being a bit put off from using it at first; that is until we discovered the veritable skeleton key to unlocking public transport: the wroclaw.jakdojade.pl website and the jakdojade app for your smartphone. The former is a great tool for advance planning, but the app is more practical for figuring out how to get from point A to B once you’re out in town and away from your computer. Just type in your starting address (the app does this automatically) and destination, or pin the locations on a map; select the time you want to depart or arrive, and Jakdojade magically churns out the best method for you to get there. Finished at the museum and want to head back to the hotel? This app will tell you exactly which bus or tram to get on, lead you to the correct stop and even tell you which ticket to buy. It’s brilliant and absolutely worth the couple Euros you’ll spend to download it. For those who still enjoy old-fashioned map-flapping, you will find a Wrocław transit map in the back of our print guides.
To plan a journey to destinations outside the city, nothing beats the e-podroznik.pl website, which will sift through bus and train schedules for you to come up with the optimal route.
