Railways: Getting to Warsaw by train

Getting to Warsaw by train

Travelling by train in Poland is a comfortable and convenient experience in terms of ticket cost and the range and frequency of services.

Three are three main railway stations in Warsaw:
Dworzec Zachodni (Warszawa Zachodnia, Warsaw - West),
Dworzec Centralny (Warszawa Centralna, Warsaw Central Station),
Dworzec Wschodni (Warszawa Wschodnia, Warsaw - East).

The city’s other stations are only served by local trains.

Warsaw - West and the Central Station are located in the city centre, whilst Warsaw – East is in the Praga district, on the eastern side of the Vistula river. Direct services connect the three stations. Almost every major city in Poland, as well as many others elsewhere in Europe, is served from Warsaw’s Central Station (e.g. Berlin, Brussels, Prague, Moscow).

All the trains are operated by Polish State Railways (Polskie Koleje Państwowe, PKP), www.pkp.pl  with long distance national services provided by InterCity and Express trains (such as to Gdańsk, Poznań, Wrocław, Kraków). For a lower fare (and longer travelling time – they stop at many stations en-route) Pospieszny trains can be taken.
Suburban and local trains are indicated by the title Osobowy.
