As a capital of the country located in the Central Europe, Warsaw is easy to get to both by airplane (e.g. 2
hours by direct flight from London or Rome) or train (e.g. 5 hours by direct train from Berlin).
There are two airports in Warsaw:
- Warsaw Chopin Airport, WAW; located around 15mins by taxi to the city centre (7-10 euro)
- Warsaw Modlin Airport, WMI; located 37km from the city centre; primarily for low cost carriers; frequent trains to Warsaw centre (5 euro) and taxi service (35 euro) are available
It is also possible to fly to other Polish cities such as Krakow, Poznan, Łódź which can be reached in 2-3
hours by train from Warsaw. The main train station is located in the very centre of Warsaw.
The Staszic Palace is located in the heart of Warsaw’s old town with a lot of accommodation with different
standards available: from cheap hostels to expensive hotels, e.g.:
- Hotel Bristol Warsaw, Krakowskie Przedmiescie 42/44 (5*, 170 euro); within the walking distance from the conference venue (approx. 6 min)
- Mamaison Hotel Le Regina Warsaw, Koscielna 12 (5*, 120 euro); an excellent location in Warsaw’s Old Town with a high standard
- Radisson Blu, Grzybowska 24A (4*, 80 euro); a modern hotel in the Warsaw’s New Town
- Mercure Warszawa Grand, Krucza 28 (4*, 70 euro); located close to the conference venue with good rates
- Ibis, Muranowska 2 (3*, 65 euro); 5 stops by bus from the conference venue or a nice walk through the main parts of the Old Town
- Harenda, Krakowskie Przedmieście 4 (2*, 60 euro); quite basic, but just opposite the conference venue
