Getting there & away
Sycze train station (more of a halt with an empty platform) is a short walk from the hill; trains between Siedlce (11zł, one hour, four daily) and Hajnówka (10zł, one hour, two daily) stop here. There is one train direct from Warsaw (28zł, 2¼ hours) at 7.13am on Saturday and daily around the feast of Spas.
From the Sycze train platform, it’s a little over 1km to the holy mountain. There are no obvious signs to indicate the direction but the yellow trail heading south will get you there. If you are coming from Hajnówka, go left from the platform down the road. From there the road veers right, but follow the track straight into the forest – you’ll come across the trail and signs as you go.
