       How to reach Warsaw

By air: Warsaw-Okecie Frederic Chopin Airport (WAW) is served by all major European airlines. In addition, there are some inexpensive connections offered by discount airlines. Note however, that the arrivals and departures offered by these inexpensive airlines are usually not as convenient as schedules of the major ones.

By train: All international trains to Warsaw stop at Warszawa Centralna station. There are direct connections with Berlin, Prague, Moscow, and Vienna. The time-tables of international trains can be found at German railways web pages.
A detailed time-table of Polish State Railways (PKP) trains can be found at page.
