Bus from Zakopane to Krakow

Have booked transfer from Krakow airport to Zakopane. But, wondering about returning on the bus from Zakopane back to Krakow, on 24 August.

The Polish Bus site's English language version is under construction, so can't get the information needed.

Questions: 1.Morning bus times from Zakopane to Krakow. (from around 10:00 to 12:00)

2. Adult one-way fare

3. Do you need to book/make reservations in advance?

Thank you

Go to the main bus station in Zakopane and buy a ticket a day before for the time you iwsh. It's 16 zloty and they will store your suitcase in the luggage compartment. The bus drops you off at the bus station in Krakow. My bus left at about 10 and I arrived in Krakow 2 hrs. and 20 min. later on a nice bus.I had no trouble getting a taxi at the bus station in Krakow.

A quick look at the timetable and it looks as if you are spoilt for choice. At least 8 buses between 10.00 and 11.00.

Hi carol,

Just re-rerading your reply and see that you are a native Chicagoan.

You may have guessed from Marmora (a street in Chicago) that I am too.

Living in Ireland over 34 years - but Chicago still has a place in my heart..

Again thank you for the information, we are off to Zakopane on Sunday 14 August..

My aunt lived on Melvina, so was well acquainted with the "M" streets. Lived as a young child near 6 corners. Have a wonderful time in Zakopane and Krakow. Most of the people look like my Polish relatives in Chicago.

So much to see!
