The main railway station (Dworze Glowny) is located just outside the Old Town District of Krakow and is well-served by public transport.
Trains at the busy Glowny station cover the local suburbs, the Polish capital Warsaw, other regional cities in Poland, and European destinations, such as Prague, Lviv, central Budapest and Vienna in Austria. All international routes are overnight services, which arrive in the city in the early morning.
If you would like to travel by train to other places in Poland or Europe, there are six kinds of trains to be chosen: InterCity (IC), EuroCity (EC), express trains (Ex), TKL, normal and local trains. InterCity (IC), EuroCity (EC) and express trains are quicker and more expensive than normal trains, and you must pay extra for a seat reservation.
