Travel information

Kielce is located 190 km from Warsaw (Warszawa), 130 km from Cracow (Kraków), 140 km from Lodz (Łódź) and 160 km from Katowice. There are direct trains from these cities. For train connections, see here.

When arriving by plane, the nearest and most convenient is Cracow Airport. Note that there is a direct train line from this airport to the main railway station in Cracow.
Another option is to land at Warsaw Airport from where one should take a bus or taxi to the main railway station Warszawa Centralna and continue by train to Kielce.
There is also a possibility to land at Katowice Airport (around 145 km from Kielce) or Lodz Airport (around 150 km from Kielce). We do not advise to travel from Lodz or Katowice by train: in both cases there are almost no direct connections and such a trip would take 6 hours or more.
The distance from Cracow Airport is around 135 km and from Warsaw Airport is around 175 km.
