Warsaw Frederic Chopin Airport is conveniently located 10 km from the city centre. All regular and most low cost flights bound for Warsaw land at the F. Chopin airport.
The only exception are the Ryanair flights that land at Modlin Airport located some 50 km from the city.
You can get from Chopin Airport to the city centre by bus number 175 (see the section on public transport), but the simplest way to go is to use taxi. There is a place right in front of the arrival hall where a taxi can be ordered. Three taxi companies are licensed to operate at the airport:
|ELE SKY TAXI||+48 22 811 11 11||www.eletaxi.pl|
|SUPER TAXI||+4822 578 98 00||www.supertaxi.pl|
|SAWA TAXI||+48 22 644 44 44||www.sawataxi.com.pl|
We recommend to use these licensed taxi companies. The cost (day fare) of the taxi to the center is about 40-50 zl. Do not take a taxi offered by a stranger.
There are direct train connections with many European cities. You can check your train on the Polish Railways web page. The main railway station, Warszawa Centralna (Warsaw Central Station), is located in the heart of the city. You can get fast and easily to any part of Warsaw from there either using public transport or a taxi. If you need a taxi, choose one that belongs to a licensed company (check names and phone numbers in the 'Taxi' section) or book it by telephone.
There are two main bus terminals Warszawa Zachodnia (Warsaw West) and Warszawa Stadion Station (Warsaw Stadium - East). Many long distance buses stop also in front of the Cental Railway Station (see above). There are regular connections with many European destinations.
Warsaw is located in the central part of Poland. You can plan your route at Google maps, Expedia, Michelin, and many others. We generally do not advise to travel by car since Warsaw is quite congested. It is rather hard to move around by car in rush hours and finding parking in downtown may be a serious problem. Please, be advised that the University Campus and surrounding area is partly closed for traffic.
