Getting around Poland
Cheap and efficient InterCity trains are operated by Polskie Koleje Pañstwowe. These are fast, clean and efficient. However, the infrastructure of the railway is quite old and it may well be quicker and cheaper to use the bus for many routes.
By car, be aware that traffic drives on the right, and standard international traffic signs are used. Major inter-city routes use the prefix `E' and motorways use `A'. Petrol stations located along main routes are open 24 hours a day. Road quality ranges from smooth brand new motorways to pot-holed single lanes.
