Warsaw is the intersection for major road, rail and air routes across Central and Eastern Europe. Warsaw Chopin Airport is 10 km from the city center and easily reachable by train, bus or taxi, and Warszawa Modlin Airport serves several budget airlines. Express trains run daily to and from Berlin, Vilnius, Kiev and Moscow, among other cities, with discount prices when booked in advance. Kraków is two and half hours south on the InterCity railway, and Gdansk is three and half hours north. Within Warsaw, two metro lines, a tram and a day-night bus system are all fast and efficient ways to get around. The city’s roads are usually congested, but Warsaw’s electric scooter and public bike-sharing systems offer an alternative. You get a free twenty-minute ride each time you rent a bike from one of the three hundred stations around the city. There are over 680 km (422 miles) of cycle paths to explore. Uber and Bolt are also readily available at low prices.
