Braniewo (German: Braunsberg) is in the Warmia-Masuria area of north-east Poland.
The bus station is next to the train station, though not all local buses serve the station.
The 1 Braniewo Railway Station is located about 1 kilometer east of the town centre. There are direct connections from the regional capital Olsztyn. The distance is covered in two hours time. There are no connections to the much closer city of Elbląg and a change in Olsztyn is required.
The trains within Poland are run by Polskie Koleje Państwowe (see PKP ) and Polregio. In any case the schedule can be checked at the PKP website.
On foot. Unless you're heading to the border as it's quite far.
- 1 Minor Basilica of St. Catherine (Bazylika Mniejsza pw. św. Katarzyny), Katedralna, ☏ . Rebuilt from ruins.
- 2 Holy Cross Church (Kościół św. Krzyża), Świętokrzyska.
- 3 Gothic Gate Tower. The only surviving fragment of the bishop's castle in Braniewo.
- 4 Soviet War Cemetery (Cmentarz Żołnierzy Radzieckich), Elbląska. A little way out of town on the road to Frombork. There is a bus stop opposite, make sure the driver knows you want the cemetery and look out for the concrete red star on the left.
Despite a dearth of online options, there is a healthy hotel scene.
