The easiest way to get to Warsaw is via Frederic Chopin International Airport which is about 10 km from the city centre.

How to reach city centre from the Airport

You are recommended to take Bus 175 which runs every 15 minutes. It goes directly to the city centre and the following hotels are on its route: Novotel Warszawa Centrum, Hotel Grand Warszawa and Sofitel Victoria Warszawa.

Bus tickets can be bought at the Airport (newspaper kiosk) or on the bus. For a single trip you need a ticket (bilet normalny – 2,40 PLN [ca. 0.6 €]). It must be validated when boarding the bus.
