As Poland lies in central-east Europe, it is easy to travel there from all countries and by many ways.

By plane. Due to large number of airports all around the country, travelling to Poland has become much easier. Year by year the number of airlines operating in Poland is increasing.  It’s the quickest and the most comfortable way to get to the largest Polish cities. Both international and domestic flights are available from airlines amongst the LOT Polish Airlines. Many low-fare companies as Ryanair, EasyJet or Wizzair fly to Poland as well.

By train. Some people suggest that Poland should be visited by train as the railway network in that country is well organized. The standard of travel and convenient connections make then trains a good alternative to planes.

By car. Polish roads are maybe not the best in Europe but their condition could be described as relatively good or satisfactory.  Anyway travelling by car across Poland gives great opportunity to see the charms of this incredible country.  Just remember about safety principles…

Speed limits: 

built-up area - 50 km/h

outside built-up area - 90 km/h

dual carriageway - 120 km/h

single-lane road - 100 km/h

twin lane carriageway with at least two lanes per direction - 100 km/h

motorway - 140 km/h

Bus trips. If you have chosen to travel to Poland by bus you can use many international companies such as Eurolines, Orbis Transport, Eurobus, Euro-Trans and many others. You will have no problems with finding connection from European cities to the larger cities in Poland (Warsaw, Krakow, Wroclaw, Gdansk, Poznan and others). They are on many European routes with good connections. To reach smaller towns you can use the local buses. Polski Express is serving many long distance routes around Poland as well as PKS – The Polish national bus company.  Tickets can be bought at the bus stations or from the driver (in this case a price is slightly higher).  If you are high-level explorer and you wanna get to small villages or isolated parts of the country, you should use micro-buses which you can find as well on bus or railway stations but the ticket you can buy only from the driver. Good luck! J

Ships and ferry. You can travel to Poland also through the Baltic sea to the main ports located in Szczecin, Gdynia, Gdańsk and Świnoujście. If you are really enthusiast of this way of travelling, you can easily find many other marinas.

In a different way. You can try to visit Poland by many other forms as hitchhiking or bicycle. Cycling is one of the most popular forms of recreation in Poland, so you will find there many trails often running through the forest land.  Just travel it safety, wear helmet and check if your bike is securely chained up when leaving unattended.

Hitchhiking is still one of the most adventurous and exciting way of travelling. It is because of getting to know new, interesting people and inhaling their cultures. There should be no problem with it in Poland as long as you follow common sense safety rules.


How to get to Brazil

São Paulo

By Plane. Brazil have 23 international airports and two of this are located in São Paulo, Airport International of São Paulo-Guarulhos, and Airport of Congonhas-São Paulo.

By Car. The main border crossings are at:

  • with Uruguay: Chuy/Chuí, Bella Unión/Barra do Quaraí, Artigas/Quaraí, Aceguá/Aceguá, Río Blanco/Jaguarão, and between Rivera/Santana do Livramento
  • with Argentina: Paso de los Libres/Uruguaiana, Santo/Tomé/São Borja, Bernado de Irigoyen/Dionísio Cerqueira, Tobuna/Paraíso (Santa Catarina), Comandante Andresito/Capanema, and between Puerto Iguazu/Foz do Iguaçu
  • with Paraguay: Ciudad del Este/Foz do Iguaçu, Salto del Guaira/Guaría, and between Pedro Juan Cabalerro/Ponta Porã
  • with Bolivia: Puerto Suarez/Corumbá, Cobija/Brasileia/Epitaciolandia,San Matías/Cáceres and between Riberalta/Guayaramerin/Guajará-MIrim (the bridge over Mamoré river will be ready in 2007)
  • with Peru: Iñapari/Assis Brasil
  • with Colombia: Letícia/Tabatinga No road connections on either side of the border.
  • with Venezuela: Santa Elena de Uairén/Pacaraima
  • with Guyana: Lethem/Bonfim

By train. Train service within Brazil is almost nonexistent. However, there are exceptions to the rule, including the Trem da Morte, or Death Train, which goes from Santa Cruz, Bolivia, to a small town just over the border from Corumbá in the State of Mato Grosso do Sul. There is still a train line from there all the way to São Paulo which at the moment is not in use, but bus connections to São Paulo via the state capital,Campo Grande, are plentiful.

By Bus. Long-distance bus services connect Brazil to its neighboring countries. The main capitals linked directly by bus are Buenos Aires, Asunción, Montevideo,Santiago de Chile, and Lima. Direct connections from the first three can also be found easily, but from Lima it might be tricky, though easily accomplished by changing at one of the others. Those typically go to São Paulo, though Pelotas has good connections too. It should be kept in mind that distances between Sāo Paulo and any foreign capitals are significant, and journeys on the road may take up to 3 days, depending on the distance and accessibility of the destination.

By Boat. Amazon river boats connect northern Brazil with Peru, Venezuela and Colombia. The ride is a grueling 12 days upriver though. From French Guinana, you can cross the river Oyapoque, which takes about 15 minutes.

Other option is by cruise, there is some two main ports in Brazil in Rio de Janeiro and in Santos (Close to São Paulo), and some companies like Royal Caribbean, that do this travels on the sea connecting the Central and North America with the South America.

- Rio de Janeiro

By plane. Both, the International Airport Antonio Carlos Jobim (Galeao) and Santos Dumont Airport are good options to reach the city. The tourists can buy tickets to get to Rio de Janeiro from others countries in company like: Lufthansa, Air France, TAP Portugal, Condor, and Emirates and to travel around Brazil you can buy tickets in companies like Gol, Tam, and Azul airlines.

By Bus. Road Novo Rio, which is close to the center and the South Zone of Rio de Janeiro, has daily arrivals and departures of the main Brazilian cities, as Águia Branca, 1001, Itapemirim and São Geraldo.

By Boat. Cruises also often make stops at Rio de Janeiro, which vary according to the company and packages. A good time to meet the river with a cruise in New Year's Eve where several ships are close to Copacabana beach to watch the beautiful fireworks display from a different angle.
