Bydgoszcz or direct to Torun?Hello I land in Bydgoszcz at 19:00 for a weekend break. I am focused more on seeing Torun than Bydgoszcz.
Should I go direct to Torun or is it worth staying the first night in Bydgoszcz, seeing that town in the morning and then taking a train around 10:30 to Torun?
Is there a direct bus service from the airport to Torun?
Note this is in early December.

if you have only a weekend for sightseeing I would recommend you going to Torun right away. Two days is not enough to see all the interesting places in Torun, so spending a night in Bydgoszcz is not the optimal decision when a beautiful medieval old town awaits you just up the road!.
When it comes to bus service - there is a direct bus connection from airport to bus station in Toruń, which leaves at 10pm and you would get to Torun at 11pm. alas the direct service to Torun is not great by bus.
Alternatively, you could take a cab from the airport to the bus station in Bydgoszcz and get a bus to Toruń from there. Buses from there leave quite often (almost every hour). Also trains leave regularly from the main Bydgoszcz station (qv the web site pkp.pl - timetable for December is not yet available). Torun Glowny is the main station on the other side of the river, if you can find a train to Torun Miasto this is the closest to the old town - although a taxi can easily take you from Torun Glowny.
You could also take a cab from Bydgoszcz to Torun all the way. It may be best to negotiate before you get in but you ought to pay about 50 USD (150 PLN) for the trip all the way to Torun.

I recomend to stay for the 1st night in Bydgoszcz. It is also nice city, you can do evening walk in the city and early morning start to Torun.
Bags feeling light?
Coffee table looking bare?
