Getting around Warsaw by Tram

| |

For tourists sightseeing the Old Town and its environs, it is advisable to walk as major monuments are situated within a walking distance. As for the attractions situated further from the centre, it is a good idea to use public transport (a bus, a tram, the underground). It is quite well organized though at times using it might be a bit complicated. For the outlying attractions, going by car seems the most reasonable.

By Tram  

The tram is the oldest of Warsaw's means of transport. As the tram system runs along the major thoroughfares of the city, it offers the most direct routes. Though trams are usually crowded, especially during rush hours (7 - 8 in the morning and 2 - 5 in the afternoon), they are regarded as the fastest of all the public transportation options. There are as many as 36 regular tram routes, with additional ones running on selected holidays (e.g. All Saints' Day).

As for tram times, they operate between 5 a.m. and 11 p.m. on working days and usually run every few minutes. Unlike buses, they do NOT offer night transport services.

Each tram stop displays the routes, the timetables and the duration of the journey from one stop to another. Frequency varies depending on the time of day (more frequent during rush hours) or day of the week (less frequent at weekends, during summer and public holidays).

Trams are usually packed during the rush hours so BEWARE of PICKPOCKETS!

By Sightseeing Tram

By Water Tram

Since 2005 tourists have an opportunity of sightseeing Warsaw from board one of the two Warsaw Water Trams. Though, these are just pleasure ships, they are called trams due to the fact they are managed by the company which runs the trams of Warsaw. The ships run along the Vistula River during summer holidays. The route is the Old Town - Poniatowskiego Bridge - Przyczolek Czerniakowski – the Old Town. The tickets cost PLN 14.00/PLN 7.00 (reduced ticket price).

By Horse-ridden Tram

12-seat horse-ridden tram, connected with the historic tradition of horse-ridden trams in the 19th-century Warsaw, has been in operation since 2005. The tram goes along the streets of the centre of Warsaw. The route is as follows: Pl. Zamkowy (Castle Square) - Podwale - Nowomiejska - Freta - Rynek Nowego Miasta - Kościelna - Freta - Długa - Miodowa - Pl. Zamkowy. It runs everyday (except for Mondays) from 11.30 a.m. till 6 p.m. every 30 minutes from June 15th till September 1st. On Saturday and Sunday there are two additional services: at 11.00 a.m. and at 6.30 p.m.
