Pol Rail website

I am searching for trains from Krakow to Bratislava and looked at seat61.com for information. The site notes to buy tickets at polrail.com. This site just states that it is not secure and will not open.

Is there another website to buy tickets while we travel through Poland ?
Should we just wait and buy tickets in the train station ?

it opens right up for me, no message about being not secure. Note they can't book international service until 45-60 days out.

I would try hard to get that international train ticket nailed down before you head to Europe. I doubt there are very many trains on that route. Assuming the train has reserved seats, it could sell out before you get to Poland. I piddled around about buying a ticket just from Wroclaw to Krakow, and by the time I tried to buy the ticket all the trains were sold out. Fortunately, Flixbus runs the route, too, and there were bus seats available. I think the bus cost more than the train would have.

While I like the train better than a bus, Flixbus ( https://flixbus.com ) has 4 buses a day starting at $16.99/person on May 4th. Trip is about 7 hours long.

I just remembered another trick. Are you able to tether your cell connection to your computer? Once a few years ago, someone on this forum could not get an airline website to open (it said it was not legitimate when it was). And I couldn't get it to open either - on my regular internet. But when I tethered my cell phone to my computer, it opened.
