How to get to Zakopane from Kraków-Balice airport

1. By car/taxi
There are many companies that will gladly take you from Balice airport directly to the hotel in Zakopane. We are not allowed to list any of them as this would be unfair marketing, but you can google for "balice zakopane transfer" and pick the one you like. The prices are given per vehicle, so it is most cost efficient if you travel in larger groups. For a basic 4-person car the prices are 350-400 PLN (ca. 90 euro). You can use the roommate discussion list to coordinate your travel with other participants.

2. By train/bus
From the arrival terminal your can directly access the train platform, just follow the signs. You can also check out the plan of the terminal

The train will take you to Kraków Główny (Main Station). It takes ca. 17 minutes and the trains leave every 30 minutes from 5:17 am to 0:17 pm. The timetable PDF is here.

Tickets are 8 Polish złoty (PLN) - luggage is free - and can be bough at ticket machines at the terminal and at the train station. The machines accept credit and debit cards. You can also buy the ticket on the train but only for cash (Polish złoty).

From the Kraków Main Station you need to get to Kraków MDA - the bus station. It is a 5 minutes walk, but the signs are not clear so please consult this map. The train arrives from the north and the bus station is just east of the train station. The bus station has two levels - you want to get to the upper one.

Buses to Zakopane leave every 15-20 minutes from 10:55 to 22:25 on Sunday, and they start again at 4:00 am on Monday. You can browse the timetable (click the flag for English version).

Ride to Zakopane takes ca. 2 hours and costs 15 PLN. It is best to buy tickets at the bus station or even directly from the driver, but you will need Polish złoty in cash.

In Zakopane you should take a taxi from the bus station to the hotel (Hotel Belvedere Resort & Spa). The walk is 2.1 km (ca. 30 minutes) (see google map), with beautiful views, but may be cumbersome with the luggage.
