On Saturday, January 6, the traditional Procession of the Three Kings will pass through the streets of Warsaw. This year is different from the previous ones. Participants will walk through Krakowskie Przedmieście and Nowy Świat, which will become promenades again next weekend.
The traditional Warsaw procession will set off in front of the Nicolaus Copernicus monument at 12 to go along the Royal Route to Castle Square. The parade route will coincide with the weekend traffic organization on this section of the Route. Therefore, there will be no major difficulties for Warsaw drivers.
From Saturday to Sunday, January 6-7, the Royal Route – from the palm tree at de Gaulle Roundabout to Castle Square – will again serve as a walking route. The streets will be closed to car traffic, but bicycle traffic will be allowed. Bus lines 106, 111, 116, 128, 175, 178, 180, 222, 503, 518 and N44 will be detoured. This winter season, Krakowskie Przedmieście and Nowy Świat will become a promenade for a little longer than in previous years. The last such weekend is planned for January 27-28.
Due to Epiphany, this weekend Warsaw trams will run according to the weekend timetable, and the metro will run according to the Sunday timetable (there will also be night services on the night of January 6-7). Buses will run “holiday” throughout the weekend, with the suspension of several selected lines
