Passport / Visa

Poland can be visited visa-free for up to 90 days by citizens of Australia, New Zealand, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, Malaysia, Israel, UAE and most countries in America. If you are unsure whether or not you need to apply for a visa, we recommend contacting the embassy or consulate in your country. International (non-Schengen) travelers need a passport that is valid for at least 3 months after the end of their intended trip in order to enter the Schengen zone. Citizens of Schengen countries can travel without a passport, but must have a valid ID with them during their stay.

Best Time to Visit

The summer months, June through August, are the high season, which means both warm temperatures and larger amounts of tourists. To escape the slew of visitors, plan your trip for just before (May) or just after (September) the peak season, when temperatures are still pleasant but the area significantly less crowded.

Public Transport

The ZTM operates Gdansk’s local transport system, which consists of tram and bus lines. Tickets can be bought from the drivers or in vending machines and the fares are either based upon number of journeys or travel time so you have to estimate how long your trip will take before buying a ticket. If you’re planning a busy day of sightseeing in the city, splurge on a day travel ticket (valid on all trams, buses and night buses for 24 hours). Don’t forget to validate your ticket by sticking it in one of the orange or brown boxes located all around the stations or on the bus or tram. Commuter rail SKM is a good way to travel between Gdansk, Gdynia and Sopot. Trains leave from Gdansk’s main train station, Gdansk Glowny.
