From Warsaw to Białowieża and back by the conference bus

A free conference bus from Warsaw to the Workshop site in Białowieża will be available to the participants. The bus will depart from Warsaw on Saturday, July 1 at 16:00. It will be waiting in front of the Palace of Culture and Science (Parade Square / Plac Defilad) on the parking lot at Marszałkowska str. (about 500 meters from the Warsaw Central Railway Station) – look for the conference posters on the bus. It will arrive in Warsaw around 12:00. Members of the local organizing committee will be at hand near the bus. Please consult the map in the section travel guide on our webpage.

The best way to get there from the airport is to take a direct train to Central Railway Station (Warszawa Centralna) or Railway Station "Śródmieście". The trip takes around 20 minutes.

We shall also arrange a free bus trip back from Białowieża to Warsaw on Sunday, July 9. The bus will depart from Białowieża not later than 7:00 (A.M.) and it will arrive in Warsaw about 12:00. First it will go to the airport and then to the city centre.

There will be no bus from Warsaw to Białystok for the participants of the School. There are very good train and bus connections available. Please refer to the section travel guide on our webpage.

From Warsaw to Białowieża by means of public transport

In the recent years there is no direct bus connection from Warsaw to Białowieża or Hajnówka. There are several other possible ways to reach Białowieża, please consult e.g. an on-line bus connection finder e-podroznik.pl or train information. Some suggestions can be found on our travel page.
