Warsaw has two airports. One of them (Fryderyk Chopin Airport) is in the city, and about 25 minute bus ride to the campus (where your accommodation and the meeting is).

Buses leave directly from outside the airport and there are signs directing you towards them, but Anna will try having some students there to help you anyway.

Anna advises to land there, and then take bus 148 (towards Wiatraczna) and exit on the stop SGGW Biblioteka.

Bus schedule:

The second airport is outside the city limits, but it has mainly cheap flights.

You have plenty of buses going to Warsaw city center (best to book one ahead, so let Anna know).

Help is available at:  

From the city center you can take Metro to metro Ursynów and then a 20 minute walk to the hotel, see map).


The accommodation is in the tallest building in campus called IKAR Pokoje Gościnne (see map). Anna booked (but didn’t pay) single rooms in 2 room suites. If you don’t mind having a VTF neighbor in the same suite, they are quite cheap (around 28 Euros per night, including breakfast) and about 10 minutes’ walk from the venue (on the same campus). If you wish to stay there please let Anna know by January 5th, so she can confirm the number of guests with the hotel. Link to the hotel is below (no EN version unfortunately):

Weather forecast is here:

Don’t forget to bring your winter clothes 🙂
