Facts about Poland

It is very easy to travel from London to Poland by train. Using a combination of fast daytime and comfortable overnight services, it is possible to reach cities such as Poznan and Warsaw with just 2 changes of train. On Loco2, there are lots of routes available from Britain and the rest of western Europe for routes via Germany to major Polish cities.
Many of these itineraries are routed via Berlin, so you may want to consider stopping off for a night or two in the German capital. There are several express trains each day from Berlin to Poznan and Warsaw, as well as useful direct services to Gdansk, Gdynia and Szczecin.
We can also sell tickets for journeys to many Polish destinations from major rail hubs in central Europe where the journey is not via Germany. So if you are setting out from Vienna, Budapest, Prague (and many other cities in central Europe), we can certainly help you – though on many such routes we sell only the fully flexible fare rather than special promotional deals.
We don't currently sell tickets for domestic train journeys wholly within Poland. But that should not deter you from exploring Poland by train. Rail travel is very cheap and tickets for most journeys within Poland can easily be purchased at the station before departure. Bear in mind that travel times may be slow, especially once you leave the main routes. Polish train timetables on many secondary routes may change 3 or 4 times each year, often at short notice.
