When choosing a tram, take into account that the interval can be from five to ten minutes. During peak hours, additional routes operate, which allow people to quickly get to the desired place, despite the increased passenger flow.
Warsaw has the only metro system in all of Poland, but it is represented by only one line that crosses the capital from north to south, at the same time, connecting with the central part, with the suburbs. The metro began operating in 1995. In the near future, people will be able to take full advantage of the second line, which will cross Warsaw from east to west, and the third line, which has a small distance and was created with the aim of connecting the center with the southern districts..
At each station, you can familiarize yourself with the subway map and the directions of train movements. Thus, it will be very easy even for tourists to get to any desired place in Warsaw. Remember that the metro line runs away from the main tourist routes and shopping centers, and in order to experience Warsaw as a tourist city, buses should be preferred.
