In a couple of days I'll be flying with LOT airline with a transfer in Warsaw Chopin Airport. I have about 12 hours between my flights (as scheduled) - I am arriving at around 10 am and my next flight departs around 10:30 pm.

Having essentially a whole day, I'm planning to go into the city. My luggage will be checked through (I verified with the airline), so I'll only have my small backpack with me - so much easier to deal with. I don't need a visa as I'm a UK citizen. From previous experience, LOT doesn't give me the boarding pass for the second flight, so I'll need to get that in Warsaw - before going to the city, naturally.

Other than the usual "make sure to be back on time", is there anything specific I need to be aware of with my plan?

Please note that this question is not about what to do in Warsaw for a day (I already have an itinerary in mind) and not about how to get to the city and back (I did my research on that front, too).

    Go to the loo before leaving the airport. It's annoying if you arrive in the city center and you have to start looking for a toilet ... Commented Jul 29, 2015 at 18:52

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'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 there right now. (+umbrella)
