From Warsaw to Bialowieza and back by the conference bus
The free conference bus will be available for the participants to go
from Warsaw to the Workshop site in Bialowieza. The bus will leave on
Saturday, June 25, from the Physics Department, Warsaw University,
Hoza 69 (about 300 meters from Warsaw Central Railway Station). The
bus will depart for Bialowieza at 16:00 (4 P.M.). We shall also
arrange a free bus trip back from Bialowieza to Warsaw on Sunday,
July 3. The bus will depart not later than 7:00 (A.M.). It will
arrive to Warsaw about 11:00. The exact time of departure of this bus
will be announced during the Workshop.
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 zl (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. Please consult the map in
section travel guide.
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 zl.
From Warsaw to Bialowieza by means of public transport
Bialowieza can also be reached by the combination of train and bus.
In this case one should take the train to Bialystok. From Bialystok
to Bialowieza one has to continue by bus. The Bus Station in
Bialystok is next to the railway station and one has to pass the
bridge over the rails only. For train and buses schedules as well as
maps please check travel guide.
From Moscow to Bialowieza by means of public transport
There is very good train connection from Moscow to Grodno and then to
Bialystok. It is cheaper and faster than connection through Warsaw.
Please read previous point for information about reaching Bialowieza
from Bialystok by bus.
Hotel in Warsaw
The organizers can book a hotel room in Warsaw, either before or
after the Workshop. Please let us know about that as soon as
possible. Prices range from 40 EUR to 100 EUR.
We would like to remind that the foreign participants should pay in cash
the amount of 400 EUR upon arrival to Bialowieza. Unfortunately we cannot
accept credit cards, personal checks, bank drafts or travelers checks. The

workshop. There is an additional cost of 200 EUR for each accompanying
Please note that due to the local conditions the accommodation is
usually shared. If there is another participant with whom you may
wish to share a room, please let us know. Also let us know if you
would like to have single room (at extra price). However note that
only a small number of single rooms is available so we may not be
