How to get to Kraków from Balice?

The Kraków  Airport in Balice is located away from the vibrant city. Most tourists who visit Kraków book accommodation near the city centre, so no wonder they are looking for convenient ways to reach their destination. There are a few options, so we decided to present the most important ones.

How to get to Kraków from Balice?

Public transport

One of the easiest ways to reach the city centre from the airport is to use public transport. You can pick one of the two available bus lines that run during the day, or choose the night line, depending on when you arrive. Alternatively, you can hop on the train and reach the Main Railway Station.

The advantage of public transport is low price and wide availability, because you don’t have to plan anything in advance. You just go to the station or bus stop and wait. Unfortunately, you might be in for a long wait, because depending on the chosen means of transport, buses or trains run once or twice an hour, and at night there’s only one bus line. A journey by bus can take a while, though, because of traffic jams. Plus, the bus is rather likely to be crowded.

Airport transfer

An alternative to public transport is a transfer from Balice organised by special companies. The greatest advantage of this option is its convenience, because the car will be waiting for you at the arranged time and in the place of your choice. You won’t have to wait for your transport even if your flight arrives in the middle of the night. Another advantage is the opportunity to go straight to your destination, which is hardly ever the case with public transport. This means you avoid overcrowded buses and don’t have to look for other means of transport to reach your accommodation. This is a very convenient option, especially if your journey was long and tiresome, and the only thing you want to do is sleep.

A taxi

The last option to reach your accommodation from the airport is a taxi. You don’t have to book it in advance and the journey is definitely a comfortable one. Plus, the taxi will take you straight to the hotel. Unfortunately, this is by far the most expensive option, so it’s good to know other possibilities, such as the airport transfer, which is just as convenient and much cheaper.
