Getting around Warsaw

The Copernicus Science Centre is situated in the very heart of the city, therefore travelling on foot is the best way to experience the city's atmosphere. Reaching other, often distant parts of the city is easier by public transport, with convenient links to any location within Warsaw as well as further afield – to the city's suburbs. Public transport in Warsaw consists of myriad bus, tram, and metro connections and enables passengers to navigate the city comfortably and swiftly 24h a day. Many public transport vehicles are well-adjusted to accommodate the disabled.

The metro system in Warsaw now consists of two lines. The Copernicus Science Centre is fortunate to have its own station (called “Centrum Nauki Kopernik”) along the route of the newer line, proudly opened in March 2015, connecting the east and west of the city. The other, longer line connects the northern and southern parts of the city.

Taxis in Warsaw are best ordered by phone, and generally arrive very promptly. Here is a list of the city's official "radio-taxi" companies, recommended for use:

Using your own car in Warsaw can be somewhat troublesome (as in any city), especially in the city centre, where a pay-and-display parking zone has been introduced.
