Gdansk – ul Mariacka

The above picture was taken in Gdansk today, 6th August 2018. The houses are beautiful with drain pipes, gargoyles, and windows. It’s hard to believe that this entire street and almost all of the old town of Gdansk was rebuilt after WWII based on drawings, paintings, and documents.

Gdansk – Airport to city centre by train

Hello – the latest information on how to get to the city centre train station in Gdansk from the airport via the train.

The central station in Gdansk is Gdansk Glowny.

At the airport, which is named after Lech Walesa, follow the red lines painted on the ground. You will arrive at the train station. The platform closer to the airport is the one to use to get the train to Gdansk.

Buy the ticket at the machine on the platform – there is an English language option, which you obtain by pressing the Union Flag of the UK. The fare is about 6,50 zloty but you can pay with a credit card.

The train will take you to Gdańsk Wrzeszcz railway station, where you have to get off the train and head to another platform where the train to Gdansk Glowny will arrive (when I did this the train to Gdansk Glowny arrived on Platform 3).

It is three stops from Gdańsk Wrzeszcz railway station to Gdansk Glowny. The final destination of this train will almost certainly be Gdansk Śródmieście.
