- How to come to Kraków?
- In Kraków there is Balice international airport with connections from many
major cities around the world and provided by many carriers, Ryanair as
well considering cheaper options. One can come to Kraków by train or bus,
though most of train connections in Poland are operated by national carrier
therefore their range is not too big. Flixbus is available considering bus
transport, though connections are mostly within central European countries.
Transportation network is very well organized in Kraków and we will provide
maps for municipal transport (MPK Kraków). We cannot offer such connections
now because during summertime there is different schedule.
- Is there cheaper lodging option available?
- Dormitory we provide has negotiated prices and they are very low in
comparison with different places. We offer 30 PLN per person per night in
double room with bathroom for two rooms. You can get with the price as low
as ~20 PLN per person per night, but most likely in crowded room of more
than two people, with shared bathroom for them all, and no kitchen. We
would suggest you would choose to stay in dormitory we provide. Connection
from airport or train/bus station is very easy to dormitory, and connection
from dormitory and our School's venue is easy as well and frequently used
by the University's students.
- Will there be food provided during the School?
- We provide one coffee break in the morning and in the afternoon and one
lunch in between. It will be a typical polish dinner consisting of soup and
main course. More specifically, every day will be planned as two sessions
with the lunch in between, and coffe breakes in the middle of each session.
During the School there will be at least two social events. These (i.e.
coffee breaks, lunches and social events) are included in the conference
- How expensive is daily food in Kraków?
- Daily breakfasts and suppers are in the responsibility of participants. In
the dormitory we are booking for the participants there are kitchens
available and a cheap supermarket (Biedronka) nearby. Next to the
University's campus there is also a supermarket available (Kaufland). Pots
and cutlery are not available. If one would want to prepare such meals,
they should have their own dishes. Self made meals should be around 5-10
PLN (~1-3 EUR) daily, depending on your appetite. Breakfasts in cheaper
restaurants might be around 15-30 PLN (~3-6 EUR) and suppers probably up to
40 PLN (~10 EUR). One can find cheaper options and more expensive as well.
Kraków is visited by many tourists therefore there is a lot of cafes and
restaurant in the city. Shops as well. (Prices in EUR are just estimated,
they might change with exchange rate)
