“Hey! How is it best to go from city center to Tauron Arena? Thank you!” We just received this question on Facebook, but instead of answering it there, we decided to create an article so anyone interested in the topic will find the answer!
Tauron Arena is a very popular concert venue in Krakow, and it is located almost 5km from the city center of Krakow, the main market square. If you walk at a nice pace, you could get there in less than an hour, but if you are going to a concert, you probably want to save your energy for the concert itself.
Travel by a taxi to the Tauron Arena
It is very easy to understand that the most convenient way of getting to the Tauron Arena from the city-center is by using a taxi. The prices will differ, so we cannot tell you how much it will cost, nor should cost. But, book the taxi from your hotel or restaurant, and you should get a fairly good price.
Travel to the Tauron Arena using public transportation
If the public transportation works well in a city, that is the cheapest and easiest way to get an area. And, if you want to travel on a budget from the city center to the Tauron Arena, the tram is the best solution.
Tram line number 1 is the perfect solution. It starts from the Salwator, touches the Filharmonia (which is by the old town), and travels on not so far from the Wavel castle, and then leaves the city center heading towards the Nowa Huta area. On the way, you will pass by the Krakow Gallery Plaza and a Decathlon store, and once you are there, it is time to leave the tram. It will not stop just in front of the Tauron Arena, so you will need to walk a little bit to get to the venue itself. Walk along the Stanislawa Lema, and you will see the Tauron Arena on your right-hand side within shortly.
- You should leave the tram on stop TAURON Arena
The tram operates between 4.30 in the morning and 24.00 in the evening.
It is always nice to have a phone with a GPS and Google Maps included, in case you should get into trouble. You can also ask the friendly citizens of Krakow for help if you need it. If they speak English, they are normally glad to help you out.
