POLAND PUBLIC TRANSPORT - BOOKSHOPS


Publishers, Bookshops, Model Shops

Eurosprinter  Transport publisher. Produces high quality books including very detailed atlases of the rail and tram networks. Sells other publisher's books on its website as well.

Kolpress  Transport publisher. Another excellent range of transport books.

Księży Młyn  Online bookshop with a transport section.

Księgarnia Techniczna - technical bookshop in Poznan with good transport section. No longer at ul. Półwiejska 28 in the city centre (it's now a clothes shop); now moved (2014) to the suburbs at ul. Głogowska 41. New telephone number is 61 865 41 39.

Hobbyland Krakow is located at Stradomska 13, 31-068 Kraków and seems to major on model railways, though it was closed for holidays when I tried to visit in July 2014. Normal opening hours Mon-Fri 1030-1730, Sats 1100-1400. Go through the archway signed for a pizza restaurant.

Model Hobby is another model shop located at Al. Korfantego 8, Katowice (as at July 2014). It's on the west side directly opposite the Hotel Katowice but hidden behind the low building that fronts onto Al. Korfantego (it's actually part of the tall tower block behind it). Mostly model aircraft but does have some railway stuff including magazines. Normal opening hours Mon-Fri 1000-1800, Sats 1000-1400.

The Księgarnia Matras chain of general bookshops often has one or two transport related titles on its shelves, particularly recently published titles. They are all over Poland; some stores are small but the larger cities are likely to have the largest branches. Click on "Nasze księgarnie" at the foot of their homepage for a list of stores and opening hours.
