New trains from Gdansk and Klaipeda to Kaliningrad

We have an unexpected news today. Two trains to Poland and Lithuania was announced by the local railway company. Actually, you will have to switch trains near the border.  Test runs scheduled in January.

Kaliningrad – Gdynia Train

Train stations:  Kaliningrad – Mamonovo – Braniewo – Elblag – Malbork – Tczew – Gdansk – Sopot – Gdynia

5-hour ride and the price is about 8.25 euro

Kaliningrad – Klaipeda Train

Train stations: Kaliningrad – Sovietsk – Pagegiai – Klaipeda

5-hour ride and the price is about 20 euro

Let’s hope everything will go well and this new option will become available for tourist in the future in addition to currently available buses.

Stay tuned!

  1. Love your blog, giving me all the information I need for the summer World Cup. Do you think if the trials go well the trains will run during the WC?

    1. I see WC as the only possible reason for those trials. So hope it goes well.

      We have started a WhatsApp group for travelers planning their trip for the FIFA Word Cup matches in Kaliningrad. Would you like to join?


      Happy new year!

          1. Nick,

            I am also heading to Poland and then Kaliningrad to watch the WC matches. Could you add me to the Whatsapp group?

            I see all Kiwi taxis are fully booked and there are still no news on the trains. I am started to get a bit worried how I will get there.

        1. Hi Nick,

          Could i please be added to the Whatsapp group please?

          I have tickets to the England v Belgium game (Thursday 28th Junes) and will arrive in Gdansk the day before, any information on getting the train to Kaliningrad would be appreciated. Thanks.


        2. Hi Robin, I’m going to Kaliningrad from Gdansk as well for the Spain v Morocco game and then England v Belgium, have you worked out how to get there from Gdansk? I’d welcome the chance to join the whats app group to learn more
