From Warsaw Airport to Physics Department
The best and cheapest way to get to the Physics Department from the airport
is to take regular city bus (line 175) at the exit of the air terminal.
Ticket costs about 3 zł (less than 1 EUR) and can be bought from the bus driver or
at the newspapers stands at the terminal. One should get off at the bus stop
in front of the Mariott Hotel, opposite to the Central Railway Station (Warszawa Centralna).
From there it is short walk to the Department. Members of the local organizing
committee will be at hand there.
It is also possible to take a taxi from
the Airport to the Physics Department. This may be very expensive
in Warsaw. In the
case, it is strongly advised to negotiate the price with the driver
before hiring. Approximate cost is 30 zł.
