Most people from abroad (probably You too) visit Wroclaw by plane.
It means, that the first question you ask yourself, right after leaving the Wroclaw airport building, is: “How do i get to the city centre?” Well, you can always order an Uber 🙂 But what, if you’re out of money?
Don’t worry – Wroclaw airport is not the end of the world 🙂
Wroclaw airport is quite well communicated with the city center. Only two bus lines run at the airport – 106 during the day and 206 at night. Each of them will take you to the main railway station, from where you can get almost anywhere, and from where you can take a walk to the Market Square (10 min on foot).
How to buy a ticket (& what kind of ticket) at the Wroclaw airport?
You can buy a ticket in special machines (our drivers do not sell them). You can find the machine at the bus stop next to Wroclaw Airport or on the bus (on the bus – only by card!). The machines have a menu in Polish, but also English, German and French. If you have a student or school ID, you can choose cheaper tickets. Remember also that if you want to stay in Wroclaw a little longer, you can choose – instead of a one-off ticket – one of the time tickets, eg for a day, two days or a week, so that you will not have to buy more tickets later.
If you prefer to see instead of reading, a short film below for You:
PS.: You must remember that from March 2018 our ticket machines will look a bit different!
You can also choose Wrocław Airport Express – it is a bus dedicated to people visiting Wrocław for the first time. It drive you directly to the city center (Pl. Dominikański or Main Railway Station), it will take a little less time than ordinary communication (30min vs 50-55 min), but it cost more, and when you arrive, it often turns out that you still need to buy a time ticket.
Firstly, the aim of the video is showing how the student life is in Wroclaw and meanwhile making introduction film about Wroclaw in a most natural way. You can see how it would be living as a student in Wroclaw. As you can see the camera is the first person. It feels like you are the guy in the movie and seeing all the things through his eyes.
After he wakes up, he washes his face, makes a coffee wears clothes. But the important thing starts with these daily activities. He opens the door and boom; we see the Rynek, people are happy and riding a bicycle, then he goes to tram station and by that he introduces the transportation system in Wroclaw to us then we see the boat tour, some buildings and finally he walks into the school. We see the friendship, foods, people are helping him and stairs for blind people.
All these things emphasize that Wroclaw is a great city for living as a student. And, I think, it’s a very clever way to show it rather than regular introduction movie but it could be better if the video was more long.
There are over 60 days of bus lines and several night bus routes in Wroclaw. There are also over 20 tram lines here. When driving a car in Wroclaw, you need to remember that many streets in the centre proper are pedestrian precincts or one-way streets. Licensed taxis need to have a roof top sign with the word “taxi” and the word “Wroclaw” plus the side number on the side doors and the price-list stuck to the window. They need to be quipped with a taximeter and a fiscal cash register.
For example tram which is moving everyday on more than 20 of rail way. Buses operative about 50 roads. First buses and trams you can see at 4 o’clock in the morning but the last about the midnight. During the night you can choose one of 15 bus roads which is drive away every single hour from every stop.
