Getting to TriCity
Port Lotniczy Gdańsk im. Lecha Wałęsy (aka Gdansk Lech Walesa airport much to the sanguine of some local Polish language experts) is 8km west of Gdańsk centre in the Rębiechowo district. The taxi from an airport to the city will cost you about 30-50 zł.
Polferries from Nynashamn, 60km south of Stockholm, arrive in Gdańsk’s Nowy Port, about 7km north of the centre. There’s only one ferry in each direction daily, so the terminal is not very busy. A taxi ride into the centre of Gdańsk costs about 25zł. Stena Line from Kalskrona, Sweden to Gdynia, twice a day and then a taxi to Gdańsk cost about 30 zł.
There are four main routes leading directly to the Tri-city: the E28 from the west via Gdynia; the E75 from the south via Gdansk; the E77 from Warsaw which comes into the city via Gdansk from the east and the A1 highway also from the south.
From Berlin there is a direct train to Gdańsk. The service continues beyond Gdansk to Gdynia, along the way serving the resort town of Sopot. It is a once-daily out-and-back run from Gdynia, leaving the Polish port city just after six each morning. The journey takes seven hours. The return train leaves Berlin mid-afternoon and reaches Gdansk main station at 10.04 pm, continuing north to Sopot and Gdynia where it terminates at 10.41 pm.
