Travel & Accommodations

How to get there

Kraków is easy to reach by plane, train and bus. There is a train service, connecting the airport with the Main Train Station, leaving every half an hour.

You can also take a bus 252 to “Cracovia” stop, just a short walk from the conference venue.

From Main Train Station or Main Bus Station, the easiest way to reach Jagiellonska street is a 15-min. walk through the old town. Due to track renovation, all trams are redirected to single route, making it easier to navigate. From Dworzec Główny tram stop you can get to Filharmonia stop by trams number 2, 4, 14, 20 or 82.

You may also use Jakdojade site and app to find the most convenient means of transport from any location.

If you are using public transportation, you will need a ticket – 20-minutes option (costing 2,80 PLN) should be more than enough on most routes. For a bus from the airport, use one-ride option (3,80 PLN). Tickets can be bought in vending machines on most stops, inside all trams and most buses. In some cases, especially on a stop, it is possible to pay with both banknotes and change or use credit card. In most trams, you’ll need the change.

All tickets should be validated upon entrance.

If you’ll need a taxi, there are plenty of options to choose from. Money-wise, we advise using Mega Taxi (+48 12 400 00 00 or +48 12 196 25) or iCar (+48 12 653 5555). In both cases, you can also order a taxi through an app.
