XL Workshop on Geometric Methods in Physics Białowieża, 2-8.07.2023 XII School on Geometry and Physics Białystok, 26-30.06.2023

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, July 1 at 16:00. We shall also arrange a free bus trip back from Białowieża to Warsaw on Sunday, July 9. 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 25 for participants of the School. Details will be announced later.

From Warsaw to Białowieża by means of public transport

In a past there was a direct bus leaving Warsaw at 15:00. We're not sure at the moment if it will be available in 2022. There are also several other possible ways to reach Białowieża, please consult e.g. an on-line bus connection finder e-podroznik.pl or train information.

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.
