Warsaw bounced back from the ravages of the Second World War in style. Nowadays, this vibrant city never rests. Find out more…
Located on the banks of the mighty Vistula, even the old town is new in Warsaw (having been painstakingly put back together, it resembles what stood before the bombs rained down). Art Nouveau and Gothic restorations now mingle with gleaming glass towers, which cast shadows on sprawling parks, lakes and palaces. Accompanying the vistas are the playful notes of Frederic Chopin, Warsaw’s beloved composer son – and the thumping beat of Warsaw’s pumping nightlife scene. Either way, this stylish city moves to a unique Polish beat.
A number of low-cost carriers touch down in the city, which means you can find excellent deals on flights to Warsaw from a number of UK airports. At just over two hours, journey times on direct Warsaw flights are short too.

Warsaw Chopin Airport is the busier of the city’s two airports.
Here, there are five public bus services to take passengers between arrivals and the city centre. A single ticket costs a few Polish zloty per person (less than £1 each). The journey time is 30 minutes.
Two train services - the S2 and S3 (the latter is a faster service) - also operate. The cost is the same as the bus, just 4,40 zloty. Journey times are also similar, although peak-time travellers might prefer the train to dodge the traffic.
It costs around 40 zloty to take a taxi to your central destination in Warsaw (about £8).
Warsaw-Modlin Mazovia Airport is further from the city.
From here, you can take a ModlinBus express shuttle between the airport and Warsaw city centre. It costs 19 zloty (£3.50) per passenger and can take as little as 40 minutes. Alternatively, take the airport bus to the nearby train station and complete the journey by rail. For travel by taxi, the 40-minute journey costs around 100 zloty.
Traffic in Warsaw can be heavy and getting around the main sights on foot is pretty easy. But if you hope to see more of Poland, consider pre-booking car hire to collect at the airport or at a more convenient location in Warsaw. Use TravelSupermarket to find cheap rates on Warsaw car hire.
