Sixth J. S. Bach Dialogue Meeting
Warsaw, 3-7 July 2013
The easiest way to
get to Warsaw is via Frederic Chopin International Airport which is
about 10 km from the city centre (website: http://www.lotnisko-chopina.pl/en).
How to reach city centre from the Airport
|By Bus:||Bus 175 runs every 10 minutes directly to the city centre and the Sofitel Warsaw Victoria is on its route.|
|By train: ||As of 1 June 2012 Chopin Airport and Warsaw’s city centre are connected
by a fast and convenient rail link. The train ride takes around 25
can be bought at the Airport (newspaper kiosk) or on the bus. For a
single trip you need a ticket to cover within zone 1 (bilet normalny – 4,40 PLN, ca. 1,05 €).
It must be validated on board of the bus immediately after getting on.
Alternatively you can get a 24-hour ticket (bilet dobowy) which is
15,00 PLN, ca. 3,60 € and it must be validated only once on getting on
to the first bus and can be used on unlimited number of rides on all
means of public transport. There is also a 3-day City Travel card. For further options and details, see http://www.ztm.waw.pl/index.php?c=110.&l=2
This is another
alternative. You arrive at the Central Railway Station (Warszawa
Centralna), which is situated just in the city centre (website:
www.pkp.pl). In this case buses 175 and 102 provide the best
connection with hotels.
