The host city, Warsaw, nurturing over 400 years of pride as a capital, is Poland’s largest city and an economic, political, and cultural centre. Warsaw is a very vivid and safe city, with a rich history and a great heritage, offering a wide range of cultural events and charming places to spend time. A city where a fourth of the terrain is covered by parkland and a city of culture for all tastes and budgets. It is very well communicated thanks to the underground, train stations and many tram and bus lines, so you can easily get everywhere you want. The city communication tickets are relatively cheap; for 15 PLN, so approx. 4 euros, you can get a full day ticket for all the means of transport: see the pricelist (http://www.ztm.waw.pl/?c=110&l=2).
Alternatively you can use Veturilo city bikes (https://www.veturilo.waw.pl/en/). The bicycles can be hired at over 200 locations in Warsaw. The first 20 minutes you cycle for free.
The fashion for bikes has now come to Warsaw, too. The bikes are available around the clock, for 9 months of the year – from 1st March till 30th November. The majority of the bicycle stations are in the city centre. Points of hire are also near most of the metro stations. A current list of all the points of hire is available on the webpage en.veturilo.waw.pl/locations
