By train[edit]

The 1 PKP Świnoujście Train Station is located on the other side of the river, since there is no bridge yet connecting the two parts. The Polish national railway company PKP provides many connections to Świnoujście from numerous destinations in Poland. For example, the train ride from regional capital Szczecin takes 1,5 hours.

If travelling from Germany, then UBB/DB is the option to go with. They offer direct connections to Świnoujście from many German cities like Stralsund, Greifswald and Wolgast. The most frequent connections are however with the close-by Heringsdorf on the other side of the border. A pdf with the schedule can be found here. Notice that these trains leave from a different station, the 2 UBB Świnoujście Train Station (ul. 11 Listopada) on the other side of the city.
