Get in[edit]

By plane[edit]

The nearest useful international airport is in Gdańsk [1]. Kaliningrad could also be a consideration for those with a Russian visa.

By car[edit]

From Gdańsk, take route E77 to Elbląg and than head north along the south coast of the Vistula Bay by road 503.

By train[edit]

The town's station last saw a train in 2006. However Braniewo, 10 km away near the Kaliningrad border, and Elbląg are on the functioning rail network [2].

By bus[edit]

Local buses running between Elbląg (7 Zł) and Braniewo (5 Zł) pass through Frombork.
