From airport to Warsaw Downtown
If you are going to fly to Warsaw by plane, you can choose one of two airports: the Warsaw Chopin Airport and the Warsaw Modlin Airport.
The first one, Warsaw Chopin Airport, is located really close to the city center. It is easy to get to any part of the city from there. Buses of lines number 148, 175, 188, 331, and N32 depart from the stop next to the arrivals hall. You can take the urban railway line no. S2 and S3 from the underground in order to get to more distant districts. Additionally, there are three taxi corporations always available at the airport. You can plan your journey to specific destinations on jakdojade.pl.
The second one, Warsaw Modlin Airport, is a little further away, outside the city. But you have several options to get to Warsaw. There is a special bus line modlinbus that offers direct connections from the airport to the downtown. You can buy tickets on-line, at the airport, or in the bus. There is also a train from near the airport, you can buy tickets on-line, but the station is outside the airport and you have to take a bus first. Further, there are two taxi corporations available at the airport.
There are multiple options and possibilities of getting from one part of the city to another. Public transport offers many bus and tram lines, two metro lines and several urban railway lines. Most likely, you will be interested in Zone 1 of public transport where all listed means of transport are available under the same ticket tariff. For short stay, probably one-day tickets or 20-minutes tickets are the best deals. Check out the official ticket tariff of public transport in Warsaw.
Additionally, there are over a dozen of taxi corporations and actively growing number of Uber drivers (usually cheaper than taxi). We strongly suggest not to use the services of drivers not registered under any corporation – it can be very expensive.
