So, here are some impression from a recent domestic German overnight train journey between Cologne and Berlin. Why did I post the photos and video on the Polish Railways forum? Well, the sleeper car is operated by PKP Intercity and is part of the EuroNight EN 447 train Oberhausen - Warsaw. It offers an almost perfect overnight travel option with a 22:28 departure in Cologne and an 06:50 arrival in Berlin.











If the video is not displayed properly, here is the direct link to youtube:

I really like the way the livery complements the design of the train.

Actually there is quite a lot to do before we can say such words about Polish railway network and trains without exaggeration. Nevertheless Polish railways are changing for better very fast lately. Modernization of lines, stations, new trains. About 7 years ago we had modernization boom on motorways in Poland which is still ongoing. Just to give you an image of changes I'll say that a few years back Poland had almost zero motorway standard roads. In 2015 we have got 3390 km of such roads. Next 3900 km wil be built till the end of 2023. Right now there is 1800 km under construction and at tender stage.

Currently the same scenario is happening on Polish railways and it is fabulous. Modernized thousands of kilometres of rail network within decade is not a fantasy but an emerging fact.

Polish PKP Intercity to modernise fleet

PKP Intercity announced plans to modernise 400 carriages, 60 locomotives, as well as renovate and build a new service-building to upkeep its fleet for PLN 1.8 billion.

“From the beginning of the year, the amount of passengers has increased and we would like to continue this trend, since we believe that PKP Intercity has the potential,” said PKP board member Piotr Ciżkowicz .

The modernisation requires complete renovations to convert nearly 400 old-style carriages to contemporary compartmental, non-compartmental, restaurant, and so-called Combi carriages, which are supposed to fit the needs of passengers travelling in groups.

The new carriages will start travelling on national and international lines, for example Berlin-Poznań-Warsaw, in 2018.

Sixty locomotives will receive heightened safety features, cost effective features lowering maintenance costs, and an increase in speeds from 125 km/h to 160 km/h.

PKP Intercity plans to utilise PLN one billion of its own money as well as EU funding for the project. (ua/rg)

In September 2.5 mln people traveled with PKP Intercity, which is a growth of 20% compared to last year. In the first 8 months already more than 20 million people used the service, a growth of 20%. The company wants to reach 30 million this year.

Hey all

With friends we are planning to visit Poland around new year.

What is the best way to get from Krakow to Warsaw. It should probably be train or a bus?

How long does it take and how much it costs? Do we have to reserve it?

We will travel on 26 and 30 of December in this direction.

It depends... What do you prefer and how much many or time have got?

Bus... Up to 4:15-6 hr (from 1pln - 60pln)
Train... from 2:30 - 3:00 (120-140 pln) to up 5hr (cheaper trains ~60 pln)
Plane... ~45min flight (from 115pln ...)

If you want it cheaper - reserve it.

Between 25-28th should be no problem. From 29th people are rushing for NYE and 1) tickets are more expensive 2) some trains/buses could be full. After 1st od January it may be a disaster

BUS: http://www.polskibus.com/en cost: 9-30 zł 4-5 hours
Train: http://intercity.pl/en/ cost: pendolino from 49-180 zł 2,5 hours

Train is better but you must buy it in advance to get best price! Stations: Kraków Główny - Warszawa Centralna

Traveling across Poland in winter is usually a terrible because of weather conditions. Get ready for it!
