Security
Poland is considered a safe country.

However, frequent robberies must be reported at major train stations and associated services, including inside the train itself during travel. Burglaries, sometimes involving “small gangs”, are primarily aimed at luggage, documents and money, so travelers are advised to keep an eye on their possessions (never leaving them alone or out of sight) and to keep them, in discreet location, higher value goods. Similar robberies have been taking place on the bus lines connecting Warsaw Airport to the city center, so it is advisable to observe the same surveillance rules.
