      train travel from Warsaw to Krakow

      Warsaw Apr 14, 2014 at 7:52 PM

      Hi Everyone,

      I am planning to take to the train from Warsaw to Krakow on September 14, 2014. I am wondering if there is such a train for that day. If so, how long is the train ride? I am meeting a friend in Krakow, who is coming in from the U.K., so I do need to be in Krakow on September 14. So would it be advisable to purchase the train ticket the day before the train journey or should I purchase the train ticket on-line before I leave the U.S.?

      Thank you

    • Dance Clubs near Katowice, Silesia, Wroclaw and Krakow?

      Katowice Aug 14, 2010 at 1:58 PM

      My significant other/dance partner and I are visiting her family in Katowice area (Mikolow)several weeks and want to find clubs near Katowice, Silesia, Wroclaw and Krakow to DANCE. We really like to dance "Hustle" (Disco), retro Swing and Latin. We've both very comfortable in the "Ballroom" environment, but we'd prefer to go to a club instead of a dance school, as we'd like to invite our non-dancing family to go also. Any good suggestions where we might find a place and room to really dance, rather than just stand in a miniscule place and shake?

      Thanks
      Bryan

      PS: (yes we sometimes dance like "Dancing with the Stars" or "Taniec z Gwiazdami";0) But we don't need that much room this trip.

      Public Transport Krakow - Katowice Airport

      Katowice Jul 25, 2010 at 5:57 AM

      Hello,

      I've read a lot of information about people travelling away from Katowice but not travelling to. I would assume it would be the same but in reverse though am not having much luck!

      I have a flight leaving on a Saturday morning at 10:55am.

      I have found this train:

      Train from Krakow Glowny to Katowice at 6:35am arriving 8:25am (4/9) TLK36104

      What I've read from Wikipedia (yes, not a really reliable source) is that buses take 50minutes from central station to the airport and depart on the hour. Is this correct?

      Would I therefore be able to catch the bus from Katowice at 9:00am arriving around 9:50am? That gives me just over an hour. Is that cutting it too fine?

      Is there an easier option to get to the airport from Krakow? Thanks so much - a lot of the information I've found online is very old.

      Tha fact is that i land to Katowice aiport about 5 pm and would love to catch late evening train to Bratislava.
      I would kindly appreciate any ideas and suggestions.

      Bus Timetable advice please

      Katowice May 17, 2009 at 1:30 PM

      Hi, we are travelling to Katowice airport wkend 10th July we dont land till the early hours of saturday morning so decided to get the bus to Krakow and stay their the night as we thought it would be quicker to travel at that time of the night than in the morning. We will spend the day exploring Krakow then plan to return to katowice saturday night and stay over before flying back sunday evening. We would like to visit Auschwitz independently (not on a tour) and thought it would be easier to get to from Katowice but I am having difficulty finding bus time tables as I don't speak polish. Can anyone advise me what time I could catch a bus on the 12th July and how long the journey takes? We would probably aim to get a bus around 8am ish not sure what time we would need to head back probably around 4pm as we fly at 19:45. Any advice greatly appreciated. :-)

      Hi,
      I will be arriving at Katowice Airport on a Ryanair flight at approx 1.20pm on a tuesday afternoon. I was hoping to get a bus to Krakow but i'm struggling to find booking info in English. I have looked at www.toandfromtheairport.com/poland.html which shows a Matuszek bus leaves the Airport at 2.05pm but booking page only appears to be in Polish. I've aslo found buses to coincide with Wizzair flights but no info on Ryanair. Also the official Airport website only gives a link to the Wizzair bus which is only available in Polish. The Ryanair website is even less helpful with this one. Thanks in advance for any advice.

      Hi there,

      Im going to Katowice very breifly in July, we're landing then pretty much getting the train directly to Novi Sad, Serbia (over night)... Our plane lands at 21:00, and the train leaves at 23:50.

      First question - Would we be able to easly get a taxi from the airport directly to the train station at that time?

      Secondly - I've heard a few negative things regarding the Katowice train station. Apparently it's over-run with homeless people, especially at night!!.. And ive read that they could get violent... i'd just like to know how bad it REALLY is?.. Would a group of 7 british tourists be safe enough on the train station at that sort of time? or should we SERIOUSLY consider a different option?

      Thanks for any information and advice.
