How to get to Zakopane from Krakow Balice Airport?

KRAKOW BALICE AIRPORT the second largest airport in Poland after Okecie airport in Warsaw - is located 110km from Zakopane (11km from Krakow). The airport serves over 100 connections to over 30 countries and is the first choice airport for anyone planning a stay in Zakopane.

The cheapest way to get to Zakopane and vicinity from Krakow Balice Airport is to take a fast train from the Balice airport directly to the railway station in the city centre which takes about 15 minutes. It starts off directly from the platform situated some 200 metres from the passenger terminal. The fare is approximately 1 Euro. Next to the railway station in Krakow you will find a bus station with frequently bus connection with Zakopane as well as Bialka Tatrzanska. We recommend the buses belong to the Szwagropol company. The fare is approximately 5 Euro. It takes two hours to get by bus to Zakopane. It is also possible to go to Zakopane from Krakow by train but this journey takes a bit longer and costs a bit more. I do recommend to take a train instead of a bus during the very high season - New Year period, long weekends in May (1-3) or in August (15th) because of the traffic on the roads.
