Useful information

Krosno may not be a complex metropolis, but there are a few things specific to Krosno that are worth knowing if you want to get around Krosno more easily, and you can read about them here.

For motorists 
If you are driving, you may be surprised by the number of one-way streets, especially in the centre of the town. However, a bigger problem is the permanent shortage of parking spaces, so it is a good idea to park outside the Old Town and take a short walk.

If you do not like the idea of walking for several minutes, the weather happens to be terrible, or the distance is beyond your capabilities, you can try to find a place to park in the Old Town itself. Car parks in the Old Town Parkingi na Starym Mieście.
