From Chopin classics to dance-floor fillers and from Gothic churches to gleaming glass skyscrapers, you should expect the unexpected in the Polish capital of Warsaw. With an abundance of low-cost flights and an easy journey time, it’s little wonder that visitors can’t get enough of this sensational city.
Cheap flights from Bristol to Warsaw are easy to come by thanks to two low-cost carriers: Ryanair and Wizz Air.
Ryanair, the popular Irish airline, takes off from Bristol Airport (BRS) and touches down at Warsaw Modlin Airport (WMI), the city’s second airport. Hungarian low-cost carrier Wizz Air delivers passengers to Warsaw Chopin Airport (WAW), the main international airport for Warsaw and closer to the city than Modlin Airport.
Average journey times between Bristol and Warsaw are two hours and 35 minutes.

If you touch down at Chopin Airport, buses, trains and taxis provide good-value transfer options. A bus journey takes 30 minutes and costs a few Polish zloty (less than £1); the S2 and S3 train services also take around 30 minutes (though won’t get snarled up in traffic) and cost 4.40 zloty (also less than £1 for a single journey). For the door-to-door convenience of a taxi, you’ll pay around 40 zloty (around £8).
Modlin Airport is further from the city centre but you can still make savings on airport transfers. Use the ModlinBus express shuttle, booking your tickets as far in advance as possible. On-the-day fares of 30-40 zloty (up to £8) can be slashed, with the cheapest advance seats costing just 9 zloty one way if you book early enough.
Taxi fares from Modlin Airport to central Warsaw cost from 119 zloty (£23).

With a distinctly different vibe to its sister cities, Warsaw is an ideal destination for a short break.
The ears of music lovers are flooded with tunes of all sorts, from classical and jazz to the dancing beats belonging to a throng of nightclubs.
Those in search of history will find it at every turn, though it’s a guessing game as to what is original and what is new; bombs rained down on Warsaw during the Second World War and even the Old Town is, in parts, new.
Striking landmark buildings, such as the Palace of Culture and Science and the Royal Castle, host museums and attractions, which sate the thirst of anyone interested in Polish culture.
Summer visits mean cold beers on café terraces and picnics in parks, while winter offers Yuletide charm with arm-in-arm ice-skating and Christmas shopping.
