Getting to Toruń by car
Toruń has good connections with other Polish or European cities. Important routes have always passed through Toruń. The Toruń road jounction is composed by three important national routes: No. 91 and A1 motorway (European No. E75): Helsinki-Gdańsk-Katowice-Budapest-Athens, No. 10: Warsaw-Szczecin and No. 15: Olsztyn-Wrocław (and Poznań).
A1 motorway is a fast and easy connection from Toruń to the north and south of Poland and such a cities as Gdańsk, Łódź, Częstochowa, Kraków or Zakopane.
Polish roads are dangerously busy and many require resurfacing or modernizing. There are only a few motorways and the network is growing slowly.

Each train that arrive or pass by Toruń stops there. Usually trains stop for a couple of minutes or longer and some already at the platform well before departure.
The main hall is not impressive, rather poor (as well as the station surroundings), so don't expect your first impression on Torun to be good when you see that. However, the beauty of old Toruń will recompense it.

The bus journey will last up to 5 minutes; route will run across the bridge on the River Vistula from where you'll have a possibility to admire splendid panorama of Toruń Old Quarter. More on the public transport here. If you take a taxi the journey to the Old Quarter will cost some 15 PLN.
