If your interest in traveling during your stay is large we recommend you purchase a Karta, which is a student ID card. This is achieved by asking for a form at the ticket counter, in which you will complete basic information such as: name, surname, date of birth, an identification photo and in another segment the school must complete the duration of the academic year, with stamp and signature. This card will speed up all your trips!
Don’t forget that student discounts for train travel also apply during the summer.
