Taxi in Warsaw - be careful

Gypsy taxis are on the rise in Warsaw (other major cities like Krakow also have similar issues), especially around Central Train Station, but also Airport and Old City - ( anywhere tourists can be found ). Those guys do not display their charges per km on top of the passenger back right doors window, and will rip you off.
Before getting in CHECK those charges per km on top of the passenger back right doors window. If you can (more then 1 taxi standing ), compare with others to get best price.
