Getting around Kraków

You can get around Kraków using urban buses (within the city boundaries), agglomeration buses (which connect the city with neighbouring districts) and trams. However, the Old Town and many other historical places are located within walking distance.

  • Tickets can be bought from vending machines around the city, once on board (these accept only coins), from the driver (prepare exact change) or at certain newsagents.
  • Single journey adult fare is 3.80 zloty.
  • Please be aware that paper tickets need to be validated using special machines once on board, else you will be liable to pay a penalty fare.

In order to avoid unpleasant surprises, we recommend only using licensed taxi companies. Such taxi should have a visible price-list, a taximeter and a company logo with a phone number.
