A) From the Main Train and Bus Station
Tram or Bus
To get to the city from the bus station walk through
the train station or the Galeria Krakowska Mall to
the square in front. Then you�ll have to go under
the street to get to the tram / bus stop -- take a
look at the map to see where. Before boarding
the tram or bus you�ll need to buy a ticket in a
kiosk if it�s open (say �bilet normalny�) or from
the machine on the tram or bus (with coins only,
Take tram no. 2 or bus no. 522. If you go by tram
you should get off at the 3rd stop (by bus it�s
the 2nd stop). In both cases the stop is called
�Filharmonia�. Follow Floriana Straszewskiego
Street (just go straight) and take the second
turn if you came by tram or the fi rst if by bus)
to the right. You�ll be on Plac na Groblach, and
we�re here at No.8.
If you have some time to spare (about 20-
30 min.), the weather is nice and you�re not
weighed down by a gigantic backpack, why not
walk here? It is a nice stroll and will give you a
good fi rst look at the city.
Walk through the pedestrian subway towards
the city center. Take the exit straight ahead,
and after reaching the top of the hill, continue
walking to the left. The path goes via Planty (the
park stretching around the Main Square area).
After a while you�ll see Dominikańska street (with
tram tracks) crossing the Planty. Take it to the
right. Go straight (it turns into Franciszkańska)
until it crosses Straszewskiego street. Then turn
left onto Straszewskiego. The First turn on the
right is Plac na Groblach. You�ll fi nd our hostel
here at No.8.
