How to get there?
Travelling by car through Warmia and Mazury is a great solution if you want to visit not only bigger cities, but also those corners of the region more difficult to reach, where there are the most beautiful recreational areas, fortifications and wildlife. The region crosses several national roads. Roads No. 7 (Gdańsk –Olsztynek – Nidzica – Warszawa – Chyżne), No. 16 (Iława – Olsztyn – Augustów) and No. 51 (Olsztynek – Olsztyn – Bezledy) are of particular importance here.
The rail network provides passenger service and is a fast and economical form of travel. A well-developed network of railway lines, with a dense network of connections, makes it possible to reach many towns in the region, while at the same time many towns have direct connections with larger cities in Poland. Railbuses are becoming more and more popular in Warmia and Mazury. The 58-kilometre route from Olsztyn to Szymany airport can be covered in just 55 minutes.
