Wyborcza.pl – On Easter Sunday, a train from Gdanski Station in Warsaw that was supposed to go to Terespol (eastern Poland), close to the border with Belarus, turned out to be a train going to Budapest, Hungary. For many years, Gdanski Station has served mainly for suburban trains but everything changed with the renovation of Dworzec Zachodni (Western Station) in Warsaw, which caused dozens of connections to be redirected to Gdanski Station. That station is a mess, trains are late and diverted to the wrong tracks, the Gazeta Wyborcza website claimed. PKP Intercity, Poland's state-owned train operator, apologised on Twitter and wrote that the company is doing its best to minimize the possibility of errors related to the content of announcements.

According to Poland's Central Statistical Office (GUS), consumer prices in March rose 16.2 percent year on year while February inflation stood at 18.4 percent year on year.
