Ok, Kaliningrad Guide Blog already posted an article on buses from Gdansk to Kaliningrad, but we see that some tourists are having difficulties when they plan arrival to the Gdansk Airport. Therefore, we will show you how to get from there to the city center where you will find the right buses.
Here is the best website for the Gdansk Public Transport information: trojmiasto.jakdojade.pl. It works in all major cities in Poland.
This service offers you the English interface, so you will be able to find Gdańsk Lech Wałęsa Airport, but you wind find a train station using English language, just type in Dworzec Glowny, which mean Main Station.
You will see that there are three available direct options: SKM, 210 bus and N3 night bus if you arrive very late. In addition, you will see options with connections, but usually it doesn’t save you a lot of time.
SKM Train: Gdansk Airport – Central Station
SKM is a railway transportation system in Poland’s Tricity area (Gdańsk, Sopot and Gdynia). It’s a new route, I’ve never tried it by myself, but it looks very interesting.
Here you will find full timetable from Gdańsk Port Lotniczy (Airport) to GDAŃSK GŁÓWNY (Gdansk Central Station): https://www.skm.pkp.pl/en/full-schedule/ You will find 13 direct trains from 5 AM till 8PM, plus much more options with a single connection. Average travel time is about 40 minutes.
210 Bus: Gdansk Airport – Central Station
This direct bus will take you right to the main Train Station and the city center.
Here is the schedule, but you can always check the actual one at jakdojade.pl service:
And check out this video, that will help you to find the bus stop:
Travel time ~ 40 min.
N3 Night Bus: Gdansk Airport – Central Station
It happens so that some planes arrive late, but you are still able to get out from the Airport without expensive TAXI services.
N3 bus schedule: 23:17, 0:08, 1:17, 2:17 ,3:08, 4:08. It’s 1 hour and 10 ride, so you can try to check jakdojade.pl for faster connections.
Finally, going to Kaliningrad
Now you know the way from the Airport to the Gdansk City Center. You will find on this map White Star – the bus stop from the Airport. It’s quite obvious where SKM train stop is.
All you need is to find the right bus from Gdansk to Kaliningrad.
The latest buses to Russia are 19:00 daily and 21:00 for weekends. If you arrive late (or just planning to spend some time in Old City) you can book a hostel, hotel or apartments close to the Gdansk center and then take a morning bus. In this case you will be in Kaliningrad at 09:30.
That’s all for now! Looking forward for your questions! See you in Kaliningrad.
