Poland’s Capital – Warsaw

Poland, Warsaw Guide (B): Poland’s Capital – Warsaw

Located on the Vistula River, which divides the city in two parts (left and right banks), Warsaw is the sprawling capital of Poland and has been since 1596.

Sad to leave Lithuania but as time is hurrying on, crossed the border into Warsaw without any hassles at all, to start travelling in a new country.

The flash LUX Express Lithuania bus (€17) leaves from the Vilnius bus station, which is behind the train station at 14:45hrs; and takes around 8.5 hours on pretty good roads and flat countryside. The final destination for this bus is Berlin so don’t fall asleep and miss your stop!

The bus offers wi-fi, is very comfy, warm, and touchscreen TV on the seat in front of you, just like on a plane; caught up with The Monuments Men. The bus does stop several times during the journey for toilet breaks, or to pick-up/drop-off passengers.

Tip: Bring snacks and water for the journey as the bus doesn’t stop for a meal stop, it only stops for toilet breaks (although there is a toilet on board the bus). ...... (follow the instructions below for accessing the rest of this article).
