    • Katowice Connection Enroute to Krakow

      Katowice Jun 23, 2014 at 9:11 AM

      I was hoping someone may be able to ease my tension. First time over in Europe at all and have easily booked trains when needed except when going from Vienna to Krakow. We now have a train arriving in Katowice at 12:32. Looking at polrail, they only have a 16:50 train even though on Bahn there is a much better 14:30 train. Is it worth waiting and just trying to buy a ticket at the Katowice station for the eariler train? And, worst case scenario, would I likely be able to get on the later train if needed still?

      Thanks for any help you all can offer!

    • Going from Warsaw to Czestochowa to Krakow

      Czestochowa May 5, 2014 at 1:37 PM

      We would like to go from Warsaw to Czestochowa, see the sites and the town of Czestochowa, and then proceed onward to Krakow - all in the same day. Does anyone know of a tour company that will do this? We would take a train from Warsaw to Czestochowa, and when we are ready to leave, take a train from Czestochowa to Krakow. The only problem would be what to do with our luggage as we tour Czestochowa. Any help regarding companies that do such tours would be most helpful. There are four adults traveling. Thank you in advnce for any help regarding this!!!

      Is there a bus from Katowice to anywhere in Ukraine? (that is, apart from the service operated by SINBAD - which arrives in Ukrainian destinations between 24:00-02:00 - so is really only suitable for locals...)

    • 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.

      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. :-)

      Am always keen to get to my 'base' as soon as possible so if it is not too expensive prefer to get a taxi rather than buses.

      Can someone please give me some advice on roughly how much to expect to pay for a taxi to Krakow and what is the best option - to pre-book, pick up a taxi at the ariport or to phone a local company from the airport?

      Also I like to take in a football game whilst on a break. Are there any attractive matchis in the Krakow area betweeen 19th and 22nd March?

      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.
