TRAVELLING TO KRAKOW

For more information on destinations flown, arrivals and departures please visit: http://www.krakowairport.pl/en.
The most cost efficient and fastest travel means from the airport to Krakow downtown is the direct train connection to Krakow Main Train Station. The train station is located near the passenger terminal. You may purchase your train ticket on floor 0 of the passenger terminal or at the train station.
The trip costs 9 PLN (cca. 2,2 EUR) and takes 17 minutes.
The congress venue is situated at 1.000 metres walking distance from Krakow Main Train Station.
Krakow lies in one of Poland’s main railroad junctions. Five trunk lines connect the city with other major European destinations. Its Main Train Station ’Krakow Glowny’ is situated most conveniently in the very city center, close to the Old Town historic district. The city is linked on a daily basis with express trains from the capital cities such as Berlin, Vienna, Prague and Budapest.
From Warsaw, the shuttle express train service takes the 300 kms trip in less than 2,5 hours with no stops in between.
Lying at the junction of key European crossroads, Krakow has abundant road connections to abroad such as the A4 motorway to Germany, the no. 7 highway northwards to the Baltic Sea and south to the Mediterranean via Slovakia and Austria, the no. 4 highway to Ukraine, and the no. 52 highway to the Czech Republic.
