Plane, train, bus...... - Krakow
Plane, train, bus......

Coming here by plane you will get to Balice International Airport. Then, you can reach the city by taxi or bus. The taxi is not too expensive and depending on the traffic, getting to town takes 15 minutes to 45 minutes. The bus is cheaper, but it?s uncomfortable and takes much more time, so I wouldn?t recommend it.
You can also get to Krakow by train or by coach. Both coach and train station are just in the centre of the city, it?s a walking distance to most of the tourist attractions.
The traffic in town gets worse and worse every day. So taking taxi or bus takes way too much time to get somewhere. The better way of getting around is taking a tram. The tickets are available in every kiosk.
I don?t recommend you coming here by car. Except for the traffic you would have to face the parking problems. Plus, the old town is closed for traffic, only taxis and people living in the area can drive in here.

Here is the map of the centre of Krakow. The green stripe surrounding the Old Town is called the Planty Gardens . Only taxis and cars with special permission are allowed to drive there. So almost all the Old Town is a pedestrian area, not every street but most of them.
