The easiest way to reach Kraków is by air. The local airport is called John Paul II International Airport Kraków-Balice and is located near Kraków, in the village of Balice, 11 km (6.8 mi) from the city centre.
From the Kraków Airport you can reach the town by:
» city bus (price 4.00 PLN, i.e. about 1 EUR) from the bus stop just outside the airport. Bus connections can be found here.
» train (price 10.00 PLN, i.e. about 2.50 EUR) from the train stop at the airport. Connections can also be found here.
» taxi. There are several companies serving transportation from/to the airport -- the taxi line is just outside the terminal. It is however probably best to preorder a taxi from one of the online services (many available in English) to avoid a possible overcharging (the price should not exceed 20 EUR for a ride to the city center).
