Frombork

The quay is central and has some small fish cafes

Get in

By plane

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

By car

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

By train

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 .

By bus

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

See

Another view from the quay. Town, sea and countryside all mingle here

Sleep

There is a hotel, though perhaps more characterful (and less expensive) are the many guesthouses scattered throughout the town.
