Travel to Zakopane

We will be visiting Krakow and Zakopane next month, going to Zakopane first. Is it possible to travel directly from Krakow-Balice Airport to Zakopane by bus or train? Any advice will be welcome.

HI

Yes to both , bus is quicker and cheaper , but I have done the train journey and if you are not in a hurry its a nice way to travel , The first class travel is very cheap compared to rail travel in the UK , You can also chose non smoking whereas I do ntknow if the buses are non smoking yet .

Barry .

ps as for prices I have nt any idea but I am sure some body will have .

I donn't think that there is a direct service between the airport & Krakow. Your best bet is to catch either the bus or train into Krakow from the airport and then catch a coach to Zakopane. The bus station is right next door to the train station. Get the coach to Zakopane as it's a lot faster, (2hrs), than going by train. Expect to pay approx 15zl each way for the trip between Krakow & Zakopane.
