1. After you leave the platform, go to the tram stop labelled "Dworzec Główny" (there are several tram stops near the railway station, so watch the labels!) and take the tram no.10 (destination - "Lagiewniki"). Get off at the 7th stop, labeled "Smolki" (2nd stop after crossing the Wisla river). Walk down the Kalwaryjska street for about 150 meters. Turn right next to the Chineese restaurant into Sliska street. (see map of Krakow)
2. If you have a lot of luggage, it might be a good idea to take a taxi. The phone number is: +48 12 9661, +48 0501-13-96-61, +48 0602-238-000, +48 0609-400-400. The taxi fare should be 15 to 20 PLN.
