  • How to get to the SOLARIS Centre and Vanilla Hotel from the Krakow Airport by bus and tram? 

A journey with one stopover. First take the bus number 300, then go to the tram stop and take the tram number 18 or 52. The bus no. 252 runs from the Kraków Airport every half hour from 5:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m. and the fare is 6,00 PLN (approx. 1,50 euro, a 90-minute agglomeration ticket). You have to get on the bus at the Kraków Lotnisko / Airport bus stop. You must get off the bus at the Rondo Grunwaldzkie bus stop (formerly Centrum Kongresowe ICE bus stop). Then you must cross the street to get to the Rondo Grunwaldzkie tram stop (formerly Centrum Kongresowe ICE tram sto, see the map below). Now take the tram no 18 or 52 in the direction of Czerwone Maki P+R. You must get off the tram at the Chmieleniec stop. When you get off the tram you should return a few steps in the direction you came from, turn left just past the Ericsson building and go straight along Luciany Frassati-Gawrońskiej street to the end (see the map below).

The whole journey time is approx. 50 minutes, but there is a high risk of major delays due to traffic jams.Information on bus and tram timetables can be found on the MPK Department of Transport in Krakow website. We also recommend using the Jakdojade.pl website, which allows you to easily find connections and plan your trip.

Some vending machines accept credit card contactless payments. Do not forget to validate your ticket after boarding the vehicle!
