Kalwaria Zebrzydowska Transportation: 3 reviews and 3 photos
PARKING BY HOUSE OF PILGRIM
The best possibility (although still not comfortable) if you don't have a car and don't want to spend money for a taxi.
Departures from Kalwaria Zebrzydowska: click here. Choose fast bus (marked in red), normal buses are very sloooow.
Departures from Krakow: click here, click on top left (Odjazdy z dworca PKS w Krakowie = departures from PKS bus terminal, on Pawia Street, oposite to main railway station), click on letter "K", choose KALWARIA KLASZT. (Kalwaria monastery): departures on left (wyjazd godz.), arrivals = przyjazd godz.
It takes over 1 hour but in contrast to train you get to the monastery instead to a railway station down in the city = it's faster and cheaper.
CLOISTERS AND STONE STATUE
Hmm... not my recommendation although it's cheap.
From Krakow Glowny (Main Railway Station) you must get to Krakow Plaszow station first (by train prefferably). Then take a train (only a few daily) towards Bielsko-Biala. Finally get a taxi or a bus from the railway station to the sanctuary. It takes... at least 2 hours! - 36 km (22.4 mi) by a car.
Check your train timetable: European timetable.
