Built new tracks (Projektowana łacznica kolejowa on the map) will enable the launch of a rapid and direct railway connection between Krakow Main St. - Skawina and continue to Oswiecim and Zakopane. As a result, no longer necessary stops passenger trains at the station Krakow Plaszow , which were needed to change the direction of travel. After completion of the investment journey from Krakow to Zakopane will be shortened by about 15 minutes. In addition, the resulting new tracks will launch a direct connection between stations Krakow Main (Główny) - Kraków Krzeminoki as part of Krakow local railway connection - red line on the map.

I will be travelling to Krakow towards the end of July. I probably will not see much trains and buses, but if I do, what should I be on the lookout for? Any old rolling stock set to retire soon, etc.?

I was in Goczalkowice Zdroj yesterday and I have to admit that old railwaystation is really nice. Even if you can't buy ticket you can go to toilet and be in warm waiting for train, read book from library, newspapers... I felt like in luxury dentist waitingroom.

It's so 90's, the exterior makes no sense to me and the interior looks cheap and uninspired, it will age badly.

Also it doesn't look very accessible, steep stairs everywhere
