Getting to Warsaw

Most flights to Warsaw land at Chopin Airport (www.lotnisko-chopina.pl), about 10 km from the city centre.

You can reach the city centre by public transportation:

  •  bus number 175 runs to the centre and around the Old Town (Stare Miasto)
  • bus numbers 148 and 188 run to the other side of the river, to Praga, Grochów and Gocław

  • suburban train line S2, S3 or RL – more information

Transport tickets are required on all lines.

A taxi rank in front of the Terminal offers selected and reliable taxi companies: Ele Taxi. Avoid people in the Arrivals Hall encouraging you to use random taxis. They are often unlicensed and their fees are several times higher than registered and legal taxis.
A multilevel car park is available at the airport where you can leave your car for several hours or days.

Warsaw Modlin Airport (www.modlinairport.pl), is located around 35 km north-west from the city centre.

Access to the city from the airport:
