The holiday attraction returns.  Free ferries and vintage buses in a Polish city

Warsaw Tourist Lines are launched. Travelers will benefit from travel on historic buses and free ferry crossings across the Vistula River.

From May 1, tourists and residents of Warsaw can take advantage of the seasonal offer of tourist lines, which include ferry crossings over the Vistula, rides on historic buses and trams, and tourist cruises to Serock. This is not the only surprise waiting for us in the capital of Poland this holiday season. On May 21, the Palace of the Republic of Poland, which has been closed to visitors for years, will open.

Warsaw Tourist Airlines is back

Throughout the summer, we will see historic buses and trams on the streets of Warsaw, transporting passengers on special tourist routes around the most interesting places in the city. “Warsaw Tourist Lines is not only a treat for public transport lovers, but also a way to get to know Warsaw,” we read on the website of public transport in the capital. Interested passengers can use bus line no. 100, which starts at the Central Station. The bus passes through Wybrzeże Gdańskie, Wybrzeże Helskie, Aleje Ujazdowskie and Aleje Jerozolimskie to return to the station building. The line runs from May 1 to September 22 on Saturdays, Sundays and holidays, as well as during long weekends. To use the bus, we must buy a standard ZTM ticket, and the conductor will help us validate it using a traditional punch. In addition to the buses of the Warsaw Tourist Lines, we will also use the iconic 13N trams from the center to the green Żoliborz and the “T” line from the center to Praga, operated by historic “Berlines” – trams from the 1940s and 1950s.

Cruises to Serock and free ferry crossings

The capital also encourages you to take part in a holiday cruise to Serock, located on Lake Zegrze, a summer swimming spot popular among Warsaw residents. The journey starts at 9:30 a.m. at the marina in Żerań and reaches the destination after approximately 2.5 hours of the cruise. At 2:30 p.m. the ship returns to Warsaw. Ticket prices start from PLN 18 for a reduced ticket to PLN 36 for a regular ticket. “The Zefir ship takes 100 passengers on board. Each passenger is guaranteed a covered seat with access to a table. There is a barbecue on the ship and a buffet with hot and cold drinks,” we read.

There will also be something interesting for fans of free attractions. From May 1 to September 22, we can use free ferries across the Vistula, which will take us from one bank to the other in a few minutes. Crossings are available every day throughout the summer on three routes: from Cypel Czerniakowski to the beach at Saska Kępa, from Poniatowski Bridge to the National Stadium and Podzamcze Fountain to the beach at the Warsaw Zoo.
