Getting around Warsaw by Underground

| |

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 Underground

Warsaw UndergroundWarsaw's underground railway system, called METRO in Polish, is one of the youngest ones in the world. It is still under construction. Currently, there is one 17-km line operating from Kabaty (the district of Ursynow) via Mokotow, Srodmiescie (the city centre) to Zoliborz (Wilson Square). Moreover, since the end of 2006 a new line has been operating from Wilson Square to Marymont. Thus, for the time being Warsaw's undergound mainly serves the districts situated to the south of the centre. If travelling to these parts of Warsaw, it is the best idea to use the undeground. The average time from Kabaty to Wilson Square (Plac Wilsona) is about 28 minutes..

The metro runs daily from 5.00 a.m. till 12.15 p.m. The frequency varies depending on the route, the time of day and day of the week. At weekend it also operates at night (till 2.30 a.m.) (the timetables are subject to change depending on the time of year).
