Getting to Warsaw – BY PLANE:
Warsaw Chopin Airport (WAW): The venue is located 6 km from the main Warsaw airport, which is served by most airlines. From the airport, take a bus (line 175 or 188, both run every 20-30 mins from 5 AM till 11 PM) to get to the venue (BANACHA-SZPITAL bus stop) under 20 minutes.
Note: there is also a second airport near Warsaw, the Warsaw Modlin Airport (WMI), with substantially fewer available flights, located ~40 km from the city. From there, you need to take a one-stop-only bus to the local train station, from which an RL train (Modlin Airport – Chopin Airport) will take you to the city center (about 40 minutes). From there, take a bus (line 128 to SZCZĘŚLIWICE or 175 to LOTNISKO CHOPINA) to get to the venue in about 10 minutes (POMNIK LOTNIKA bus stop).
Getting to Warsaw – BY TRAIN:
There are direct trains to Warsaw from major cities in the neighbouring countries (e.g. Berlin, Prague etc). Timetables and tickets are available at Intercity. From the Warsaw Central Railway Station, take a bus (line 128 to SZCZĘŚLIWICE or 175 to LOTNISKO CHOPINA) to get to the venue in about 10 minutes (POMNIK LOTNIKA bus stop).
Getting around Warsaw
We recommend using public transport, which includes mostly buses (over 200 day lines operating 5 AM – 11 PM and 40 night lines operating 11 PM – 5 AM), but also trams (over 20 day lines), and metro line. Check connections and timetables here. Tickets can be bought in ticket machines, located at the stops or inside vehicles (all accept credit cards), but not from bus drivers. Group tickets, one- and three-day tickets are easily available without registration anywhere – for details, see here. Additionally, there are many alternatives to public transport, such as:
- city bikes - Veturilo - most affordable option
- electric scooters – there are currently multiple companies operating in Warsaw, such as Lime, Hive, or Blinkee.
- carsharing - Panekcs
- taxi services, e.g. Uber
The main entrance to the Biological and Chemical Research Centre is located on the University campus (western) side of the building. When approaching from Żwirki i Wigury street (eastern side), you will need to walk around it to find the entrance.
