XXXIX Workshop on Geometric Methods in Physics 27.06-3.07.2021
IX School on Geometry and Physics 21-25.06.2021

From Warsaw to Białowieża and back by the conference bus

The free conference bus from Warsaw to the Workshop site in Białowieża will be available to the participants. The bus will leave from Warsaw on Saturday, June 27 at 16:00. We shall also arrange a free bus trip back from Białowieża to Warsaw on Sunday, July 5. The return bus will depart not later than 7:00 (A.M.). It will go directly to the Chopin airport in Warsaw and it should arrive about 12:00.

The bus from Warsaw to Białowieża will be waiting in front of the Palace of Culture and Science (Parade Square / Plac Defilad) on the parking at Marszałkowska str. (see the map) - look for the conference posters on the bus. It will arrive around 14:00. Members of the local organizing committee will be at hand near the bus.

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. You can also take a regular city bus (line 175) at the exit of the air terminal. One should get off at the bus stop in front of the Mariott Hotel, opposite to the Central Railway Station. Tickets cost about 4.40 zł (about 1 EUR) and can be bought at the newspapers stands or vending machines at the terminal.

It is also possible to take a taxi from the Airport to the Palace of Culture and Science. This way is more expensive, however it may be quicker and more comfortable. In the case, it is strongly advised to negotiate the price with the driver before hiring. Approximate cost is 30 zł.

Please note that there will be also a bus from Warsaw to Białowieża on June 23 for participants of the School. Details will be announced later.

From Warsaw to Białowieża by means of public transport

Last year there was no direct bus connection from Warsaw to Białowieża or Hajnówka. This year, it seems there is a direct bus leaving Warsaw at 15:00. There are also several other possible ways to reach Białowieża, please consult e.g. an on-line bus connection finder or train information.

  • The route through Białystok is a combination of train Warsaw - Białystok and bus Białystok - Białowieża, with a possible change of bus at Hajnówka. There are also buses to Białystok departing from Warsaw Airport.
  • The route through Siedlce or Czeremcha is combination of a train Warsaw - Hajnówka (with one or two changes at Siedlce or Czeremcha) and a bus Hajnówka - Białowieza.
For details, please check train/bus timetables linked above or contact the organizing committee.

It is also possible to hire a taxi from Hajnówka to Białowieża, with an estimated cost of 80 zl (30 EUR or 40 $) or less.

From Moscow to Białowieża by means of public transport

There is very good train connection from Moscow to Grodno and then to Białystok. It may be cheaper and faster than connection through Warsaw. Please read previous point for information about reaching Białowieża from Białystok by bus.

Another posibility is to take a train to Brest, take a bus to Kamyanyuki and cross the border near Białowieża by foot at the checkpoint Białowieża-Piererov. Please note that it is pedestrian only crossing point. Please let know the Organizing Committee if you intend to use this route so we can organize a transport from border to the center of Białowieża (around 5km).

Hotel in Warsaw

The organizers can book a hotel room in Warsaw, either before or after the Workshop. However there are many convenient hotels you can book on-line, see e.g. Gromada Hotel "Dom Chłopa".
