There is no direct train from Warsaw to Riga or Tallinn. It is possible to do the journey by train, but it's cumbersome. It takes two days and you would be traveling on local trains, mainly soviet-style Elektrichkas. You have to travel from Warsaw to Vilnius and then from Vilnius to Riga, and finally from Riga to Tallinn. Note that this route does not ...

You can use a special "Modlin Bus" - http://www.modlinbus.com/ which has a bus stop in front of the airport terminal and goes directly to the centre of Warsaw. It might be the best option for you, because you don't need to change from bus to train like in case of "Koleje Mazowieckie". You can also use trains provided by "Koleje Mazowieckie" railways. To get ...

I am not sure about the skyscrapers, but it is definitely possible to access the viewing area on the 30th floor of the Palace of Culture and Science, which is right in the centre of the city.

There is a train station within walking distance of the terminal, if you're going to take the train into the city, but last time I was there it was not easy to find: the signage was not very clear, basically. If you start walking along the airport access road you've gone too far. Other than this I think it is very simple and easy. WAW is a good airport.

If you want to get from Wrocław to Warsaw quickly, the fastest (3h40) option is the EIP (Express Intercity Premium) train. It costs ~14EUR if you book ~2-3 weeks in advance, see http://intercity.pl for journey planner and tickets. If you're buying on the day of the journey, the price rises to ~35EUR, but you should still be able to get a seat. Slower trains ...

You have three things to consider: The possibility and expenses of roaming (using your home cell contract abroad). The possibility and inconveniences of using a local SIM in your home phone The costs of buying a new phone. When you go abroad, the easiest, but the most expensive is to simply use your home phone there. This requires you to have roaming ...

The Man in Seat 61 says that there is both an unmanned 24-hour locker service, as well as a manned left-luggage service at Warsaw Central station. Quoting from the Man himself: Warsaw:  Warsaw Centralna has luggage lockers in the passageway at the top of the steps to the platforms, around 9 zlotys (£2) per locker per 24 hours.  There's a staffed left ...

The trains do run from Tallinn and Riga to Warsaw same as the other way around. The easiest way to find them would be actually via Polish Rail site and schedule, which will allow you to search destinations in either direction and will provide you the changes needed to complete your journey. Strangely enough (or may be not) the number of changes is actually ...

Traditionally, Praga is considered the most dangerous districts. There are many dramatical stories, like that one that an estate agent have told me, after going there to see an appartment, he had to pay ransom to leave the staircase. But it don't apply to the whole Praga, only to a few streets. As for general statistics, see here: ...

Frankfurt Airport operates a Fast Lane to allow connections under 30min: http://www.frankfurt-airport.com/content/frankfurt_airport/en/services/container_services/fast_lanes.html Fast Lanes What not everyone knows: when passengers are hurrying to catch a connecting flight at Frankfurt Airport they can take a shortcut to get to their gates ...

If you rent an appartment using real estate agency, there's de facto standard fee - 1 month rent, which is splitted 50/50 between the owner and the tenant. Because the owner will be charged too, it's unlikely somebody will be interesting in such short-term rental through the agency, so you should look for direct offers (pl: bezpośredni).

At that hour, I presume you are flying Air Baltic BT 416 from Riga to Vukonovo. You can see the routes on this route map , enter Moscow on the left and pick SVO or VKO to see the flights. The only bus is 611 which does not run per this 611 timetable this late. The express bus is even more limited per this 611s timetable.

If you're on a budget: 24h city transportation ticket is really cheaper than buy short-tern tickets each time. Check foursquare, soup can be found in ~5zl, quite good lunch in 15zl if not on budget - city taxi must have price displayed at the door, so you'll know what you'll have to pay before you get that car. Check weather forecast - it's almost cold ...

As the normal transfer time is one hour(plus delay over 30mins), deduct time for taxiing and gate close time, actually you have <30mins for transit. Prepare your passport and take out you computer/mobile before landing for faster security check. Choose a seat as front as possible. Pack your stuff and prepare to leave before the flight landing to leave ...

I just checked the German railway site and found several options for under €40 on 11-11-2015. I think that with that kind of prices it is not worth breaking the ticket unless you want to break the travel. If you want to buy a ticket all in Poland, I think this is the site to use. But there might be other/better options, I never used the site.

Rome2Rio says that you can do this by bus and/or by train. There seem to be a LuxExpress coach costing 30€ for a journey lasting 5h20, as well as a regional train costing ~10€ for a journey lasting 6h15. Other bus options exist according to the linked website, they all seem to take more than 6 hours to bring you to Warsaw. Regarding seating reservation, ...

If your flight arrives in Sheremetievo (BT426), then you may use the H1 (it's russian N letter) night bus. It goes right through the city center, and at night there will be no traffic jams. Judging by the timetable, the first bus leaves the airport at 03:00, which should give you the time to pass the customs, then every half hour.

I would not personally consider your permanent residence as Frankfurt under the circumstances. Assuming that, as in your second year at college, you are between 17 and 79 then an interview is required (except is some cases for renewals). The U.S. State Department's Visitor Visas page mentions that and includes: You must schedule an appointment for your ...
