The Poland Rail Travel Guide


We started as the "Polish Train Page" on the Internet in the autumn of 1995. We frequently received messages from readers who have questions about travelling by train in Poland, and this guide to travelling by rail in Poland was created to help answer those questions and provide general information.


Having travelled tens of thousands of kilometers by rail in Poland and Central Europe since 1990, we have gained some insight into travelling by rail in Poland and hope that we can share some of the things we have learned with others. This guide is targeted at the first-time rail traveller and assumes no prior experience in travelling on European trains. Experienced travellers may also find items of interest, and are encouraged to keep reading!

rail train travel in Poland and Europe


The goal is to furnish an introduction to the Polish railways. We hope to provide some background information on the system, a general guide to planning and carrying out a railway journey, and details on types of equipment and services that the leisure or business traveller may find useful.


If you have any comments or suggestions on these pages, please feel free to contact us.
