They offer assistance, guidance and advice in language you understand.

Many people get discouraged whether it’s because of lack of understanding of a new environment or things are not going as planned or we’ve experienced something unexpected. Being able to reach to someone or a group of people and get a different perspective on a challenge or issue we may be facing is extremely valuable because at times, when we’re in the middle of something, it can be challenging to see different alternatives or options when you can not speak or understand the main language of the people.

 

 

Step 1: How to get from Wroclaw airport to the city centre?

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.

Here You can find more info about public transport in Wroclaw.

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.

Choice is yours 🙂 Have a nice trip 🙂
