Travel Information

Final Destination: Lublin or Chelm

Departing from Warszawa/Warsaw:

These trains cross the city from east to west - so they call first at Warszawa Wschodnia station, which is on the eastern side of the city centre.

If you will be commencing a journey in the vicinity of the old town, you can take tram line/route 13 direct from the 'Stare Miasto' stop direct to Wschodnia station.

They then call at Warszawa Centralna - the main station in the city, which is why we've used it for the orange station info button, which can be clicked above

After departing from Warszawa Centralna these trains will then call at Warszawa Zachodnia.

So check the location of the starting point of your journey, to see which of these three stations will suit you best.

Mon-Fri: 9 x trains per day
Saturday: 8 x trains
Sunday: 9 x trains


Book early and save: Yes

Online bookings open: 30 days ahead of the travel date

On the Warszawa to Lublin route, the train service is split between IC trains (up to 6 x departures per day) and TLK trains (3 x departures per day), but on this route both types of train have similar journey times AND tickets prices tend to be similar too.
So take whatever departure suits you.

Also this is not a route on which to be overly concerned about saving money by booking online in advance; the cheapest tickets are only around 7zl less than the standard price.

Using Rail Passes:

Rail pass users will need to make reservations before boarding these IC and TLK trains, as explained here.

Book the reservations at a station when you arrive in Poland.
