Getting in by car
Bielsko-Biała lies on a route from Poland to the southern neighbours – the Czech Republic and Slovakia, which makes getting in by car simpler. The city can be relatively easy reached via a number of motorways. Various large construction projects are undertaken and planed in the near future promising even smoother connection.
