The extensive transport network, as well as the role of Wrocław as the capital of the voivodeship and a dynamically developing economic and cultural center, makes it one of the main travel destinations, which can be easily reached by any means of transport.

From abroad, we can easily reach Lower Silesia from Germany: from Leipzig and Dresden via the A4 motorway, from Berlin and Cottbus via motorway No. 15, and from the Czech Republic via motorway No. 10 from Prague to Turnov and then via Szklarska Poręba or Kamienna Góra. From Europe, international roads E67 from Finland through Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania to the Czech Republic and E65 from Sweden to the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, Croatia and Greece lead to Lower Silesia. Internal transport is facilitated by numerous expressways (S3, S5, S8) and national roads of transit importance:

  • • DK35 – running from the Czech border, through Wałbrzych and Świdnica to Bielany Wrocławskie;
  • • DK5 – connecting the largest urban agglomerations in Poland: Tricity, Bydgoszcz, Poznań, Wrocław and Wałbrzych. It ends at the border with the Czech Republic in Lubawka;
  • • DK94 – connecting cities such as Zgorzelec, Legnica, Wrocław, Opole, Sosnowiec, Jarosław;
  • • DK8 – leading from the border with the Czech Republic in Kudowa-Zdrój to Raczki near Suwałki;

The airport is located in the voivodeship capital. The airport in Wrocław regularly offers connections to several dozen cities throughout Europe, and seasonally, also beyond the borders of the old continent. In terms of the number of checked-in passengers, it is currently the 4th Polish airport. It is permanently served by 10 regular airlines, and in the summer there are also a number of charter connections. Several times a week, there are cruises from the largest European capitals such as London, Oslo, Paris, Rome, Brussels and cities of agglomeration and tourist importance, such as Zurich, Milan, Frankfurt, Bristol and Porto. Information about the current connection network can be found on the website airport.wroclaw.pl.

The airport, located approximately 10 km west of the center, can be reached by car, city bus or taxi. There are also offices of several car rental companies in the arrivals hall, including Europcar (https://www.europcar.com/pl-pl). City buses depart from the airport and the journey time to the center is approximately 30-50 minutes.
