Katowice International Airport
Katowice International Airport is located in Pyrzowice, 30 km north of center of Katowice. There are regular bus services running between the airport and the city and they arrive (and depart) in the new local bus terminal located under the central train station. Taxis can be taken from outside the airport.
Katowice has a transport system mostly made up of buses, trams and trains. It is the company KZK GOP who is primarily responsible for bus and rail service in Katowice. You can buy your tickets in grocery stores, newspaper stands or directly on the bus, but bus or tram drivers often speak only Polish.
Look out for red signs with Poczta Polska if you want to send a pacel or letter via mail. The main post office is located in Pocztowa Street, but if you just need a stamp for your postcard, you will get stamps in smaller kiosk stores all around Katowice.
Look for the sign "Apteka" to find a pharmacy in Katowice. You will find one Pharmcy close to the main station on Wojewódzka Street.
