  • I now want to write an instruction on the train in Gdanskområdet which I personally would have liked reading: between the towns in the area are a commuter train SKM that goes along the coast. It is inexpensive and good. Stop everywhere. Buy a ticket at the door and punch in the yellow machine. Between Gdansk and Gdynia one can for fun take a completely different route (newly opened railway) Inland behind the mountains also. Run both SKM and PKM. There are different companies with different tickets. Going from different platforms. Between Gdansk central station there is a train line, modern SKP at the airport. Tickets can be purchased at the front of the train. Go from platform 2. From platform 1 is sometimes a very slow train, railcar SKM to the airport. Ticket can be bought on the train the reason I mentioned the thing is that the information is very weak at the net, where you are still talking about a bus route to the airport. Now the rail! Hoppasdetta was of no help sincerely/Toivo
