Can anyone tell me how far is the bus station (I'm arriving by polskibus from Bratislava) from the main train station please?
My name is Nienke Ties and I'm representing the Drents Youth Orchestra (Drents jeugd orkest).
We are an orchestra consisting of 70 people (age 12-30) and in July we come to Poland for our yearly trip.
Katowice is one of the places we would love to play, we really like the city!
Is there a possibility that we do a concert for about 2 hours in your city on July 28, Thursday?
Maybe some of you know how we can get in contact with the right person. We are looking for a nice place to stay, maybe a nice place on a market, in the city centre or on a beautiful square?
I really hope to hear from you! Thanks a lot!
My mother and sister will travel to Poland in mid sept. They will visit city of Czestochowa. They will stay in St. Barbara monastery hostel. Does anybody know if there are nearby shops and restaurants with Polish cuisine?

Where can they buy good coffee of Polish brands like Woseba, Astra etc...?
I'm looking at traveling from Bratislava on the Polski Night bus in early Oct to Katowice. My final destination is Wroclaw. I just have a few questions.
a. How far is the Polski Bus terminal from the Train station?
b. I arrive around 0600. The next Polski bus is at 1005. I believe that there is a train at 0800 or so. Which one would you choose?
c. Where is a good location for an ATM to change cash or can I use Euros/credit cards?
d. Good choice for breakfast
Where can I buy a 100 litre duffle bag with wheels in Katowice?
We need to get to ul. 3 Maja from the train station, which bus or tram should I take? or should I just take a taxi? how much would it cost normally? I really don't want to get cheated and overcharged by a dishonest taxi driver.
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!
Can one make a bike trip from Czestochowa on the eagl nest trail/ ojcew National Park ( I only find website for trips from Krakkow). Where can you find a bycicle rental in Czestochowa? Or from where would you start a biketrip if you stay in Czestochowa.
I will be visiting Jaworzno, I am indian and I'm afraid after hearing about racism, etc. Are there any dangers or security problems, if any what are the precautions? Thanks!
Arriving by train to Katowice and would like to take bus to Kraków. Two bus stations in town. From where does the LINK bus leave, the train station? or the PKS station on Piotra Skargi? Thank you
I might be coming to Poland in August and was wondering what time the last train would be from Czestochowa to Krakow on a Sunday and also what time the buses ran from in the afternoon? Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks
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!!!
How does one arrange a guided tour of Jasna Gora that led by a monk or nun? I've heard of these tours but cannot find out how to arrange. I have seen included with transportation from Krakow, but we will be driving ourselves on our way to Warsaw.
How can I get from Katowice to Przemysl after 23:00? Thank you.
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...)
My son will be in Drzonkow in September. I don't know if he will have much time to do any sightseeing (and he doesn't speak Polish) but in case he does get some free time, what is there to see and do nearby?
I will be travelling from Krakow to Vienna and need to change trains in Katowice. I have only 9 minutes between trains. Can I make it? How can I get help? Are there station employees to assist? Porters? How do I get their attention? Wave a fistful of zlotys? I'm a 60 year old woman, so won't be able to run from one track to another.
Thanks for all advice. Passel
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?
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.

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 all! I've heard and read a lot about magic atmosphere of train station in Katowice. But still have essential questions.
- What are opening hours of ticket offices?
- Is is possible (i didn't find any option, but still do hope) to buy this ticket online?
- Is is possible to buy ticket on board (of course with some extra money). If so, what should i do on the border? buy anothe ticket for Check territory and then Slovakian territory.
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.
Thanks in advance,
I am trying to get from Katowice airport (Wizz flight) to Katowice train station in the afternoon for a train to Ostrava. What is the easiest way to get between the two? Is there a train or direct bus? Thanks!

Hi all! I'll be arriving in Katowice on a Ryanair flight at 8pm on the 16th September.
I've been searching for airport transfers to Krakow, and carpolonia.pl / http://www.wizz-bus.com seem to be the cheapest! Has anyone used them before? Is it possible for me to book with the WizzAir bus company - despite not flying with them?
Thanks for any info!
And how much will that cost if one is allowed to go there?
Thank you very much.
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. :-)
Im flying with tyanair to Katowice ,how can I get from airport to czestochova by train or bus ,your advice appreaciated
I arrive into Katowice Airport at 2:10 am in March. I am stayin in Katowice City for the night. I need to know is there a night train or bus running at this time to the city centre please, if not, how much should I expect to pay for a taxi one way? I would also like to know is there a bus that leaves Katowice City going to Oswiecim in the morning from 8am onwards? Looking forward to hearing from you. :)
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?
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.
We are on a Ryanair flight arriving in Katowice on 4/10 at 21.00 we would like to get to Krakow that evening - is it possible - are there buses?
We will do the return trip a week later
your help would be very much appreciated
