How to get to SOLARIS?

  • By public transport:

From the Krakow Główny central railway station and a coach station you can get to the SOLARIS Centre by tram using line 52 (in the direction of Czerwone Maki P+R). A single journey ticket costs PLN 6 (approx. 1,5 euro) per person. Here is the route from the Main Railway Station to SOLARIS NSRC by tram no. 52.

You have to get on the tram at the Teatr Słowackiego tram stop, which is located approx. 8-minute walk from the central railway station (see the map below). When you get off the tram at the Chmieleniec stop you should return a few steps in the direction you came from and go straight along Luciany Frassati-Gawrońskiej street to the end (see the map below).

The journey time is approx. 30 minutes.

Information on bus and tram timetables can be found on the MPK Department of Transport in Krakow website. We also recommend using the website, which allows you to easily find connections and plan your trip. To change language version of the website you must click on the settings button at the top-right corner of the homepage.

Tickets can be bought from vending machines for cash. Some vending machines accept credit card contactless payments. Do not forget to validate your ticket after boarding the vehicle!

  • By taxi:

You can get to the SOLARIS Centre using taxi companies services, as well (iCar, Barbakan, Mega Taxi, Eco Taxi, Dwójki, Krak Taxi). However, if you want to pay for the course with a credit card, you must make sure when ordering a taxi that a driver will have a payment terminal. Not all dispatchers and drivers speak English.

You can also use the Uber, Bolt or FREENOW app.
