How to Reach Warsaw


  • By Rail: If you’re coming from an EU country around Poland, the best way to reach Warsaw is by train. Not only do you get to see some countryside, but also get a chance to experience the famous European trains.
  • By Air: Flying is the best option if you’re landing directly in Warsaw from different countries. You can choose to fly in domestically and also internationally. You can choose to fly in to the Warsaw Chopin Airport which is the main airport of the city. You can also fly in to Warsaw Babice Airport which is mainly used to fly in domestically. To paraphrase “All road in Poland, lead to Warsaw”.
  • By Road: Driving or taking a Bus to Warsaw is another option, but not preferred so much due to the sheer traffic within the city.


  • By Foot: For the complete Polish experience, see Warsaw on foot to completely absorb the beauty of the city and do justice to it.
  • By Bus: The public transportation system of Warsaw is very well connected and all major tourist attractions are easily accessible. If you’re traveling without an itinerary in mind, board a hop-on/hop-off bus and get off at any stop that you would like to explore.
  • By Taxi: Another reasonable and reliable option is hailing a taxi, which will literally take you door-to-door.
  • By Tram: As it is a big city, the city is well connected by trams and you can access them for getting to most points in the city.
