Good news. The Main Railway Station is located slap bang in the city center. A short walk from the station and you will be in the Main Market Square in 15 minutes. You can also leave the station at Bosacka Street where you will be able to get a taxi. Here you will find the long distance bus station.
TIP - to avoid the crowds and to get around easier go up to the roof of the station (stairs from each platform) and get taxi there in the large parking area. When ordering a taxi by phone tell them you are on the roof of the station. More details in the taxi section. Note - most of the city center hotels can be reached by foot. If you have not booked a hotel ask for available rooms at the tourist information center in the railway station. You might be stopped by private room owners who will propose a room in their house. Prices are quite reasonable but the room is often in a house outside the city center. So if you want to stay in town and walk about then take a hotel or one of the many available hostels. The train station is under reconstruction. Expect some problems when walking around the corridors, in any case you wont be there long. One way out is connected to the new Galeria Krakowska Mall. It's a perfect place for shopping, having a meal, visiting the nice new, clean toilets and going to the ATM. The passage is open
during Galeria opening hours.
