Efficient Transportation around Poland:
Trains in Poland act as the best way to get around this historically rich country. You can go from Krakow to Gdansk in about 8 hours via express train, but if you're traveling from city to city around Poland's perimeter, you might ride no more than 4 hours.
Clean, Modern, On-Time:
Trains in Poland are generally clean and modern, as well as comfortable and punctual. Snacks are available, but it's best to take your own food while traveling by train – choices from the dining car or from wheeled carts will most likely be of the overpriced, pre-packaged variety.
Train Tickets :
Train tickets will be punched by an attendant after the train is moving. Have your ticket and receipt ready – the attendant will want to see both. (Often, the ticket and receipt will be stapled together by the ticket seller.)
Toilets on Poland's Trains:
Toilet paper may or may not be available in toilets on Polish trains. Always take your own. Either remove the cardboard cylinder from the roll and flatten it to save space or use travel tissues.
Polish Train Stops:
Watch for your stop so that you can gather your things before getting off the train. You will have plenty of time to exit at stops in major cities, but may have less time in small towns. Because the trains generally stick to schedules, you can use the time printed on your ticket to assess when you should prepare to exit the train. If you are unsure, as a train attendant or even one of your fellow passengers.
