City tours, excursions and tickets in Warsaw and surroundings
Poland - moving around the country
In large cities you will also find a tram service. There is a metro in Warsaw, the capital of Poland. Please be aware that the metro stations are quite large, and the underground interchange itself is convenient. It leads to the sleeping areas, and to the hysterical and administrative center of the city; that is why the metro is very popular among tourists and locals. It is also possible to connect these areas with the help of a bicycle. However, it is worth mentioning that cycling in Poland is just beginning to develop, and comfortable and extensive network of bicycle lanes are absent so far, even in large cities. In view of their absence, you will have to move around the pedestrian precincts, which do not always go down well with locals. Also, it should be taken into account that it is prohibited for cyclists to move in two rows. Non observance of this law can attract a solid fine.
