Getting to our workshop
The Tomaszowice Manor Estate – Krakow Conference Center (http://www.dwor.pl/) is located at the gates of Krakow and is the only one of its kind historic nineteenth century manor park complex. It is outside the main urban area but within 20 min TAXI ride distance from the Krakow Historic Centre. It is also easily reachable by public transportation.
Krakow is served by the John Paul II Krakow Airport (http://www.krakowairport.pl/en/), which is fairly close to our venue (12 km, about 15 min by taxi). After leaving the arrivals you can either take the official airport taxi: http://www.krakowairport.pl/pl/pasazer,c70/dojazd,c313/krakow-airport-taxi,a2435.html (relatively expensive but you cannot go wrong with it) or call one of the radio TAXI companies (e.g. WAWEL TAXI (http://waweltaxi.pl/kontakt) or BARBAKAN TAXI (http://barbakan.krakow.pl/) you can also use your UBER or TAXIFY app.
It makes no sense to go first to Krakow city centre in order to get to
the workshop venue which is close to the airport.
You may also reach Krakow by train.
Please buy your tickets to Krakow Main Station and from there take a
taxi to the Tomaszowice Manor Estate – Krakow Conference Center (ask the
driver to take you to: Krakowskie Centrum Konferencyjne Dwór
Tomaszowice). The best is to call one of the radio TAXI companies, e.g.
WAWEL TAXI (http://waweltaxi.pl/kontakt) or BARBAKAN TAXI (http://barbakan.krakow.pl/) or use your UBER or TAXIFY app.
When taking taxi on the street - confirm the price first (85 PLN- 20 euro seems fair fare).
PUBLIC TRANSPORT: Our meeting venue is served by city bus number 230, which departs from one of the big city transportation hubs in Krakow - BRONOWICE MAŁE (easily reachable from the main train station by many trams and buses).
You can also chose to fly
to Katowice Airport (about 80 km from Krakow) but getting to our venue
from there could be time consuming and expensive.
We DO NOT recommend flying
to Warsaw with an intention to continue your travel by train. Although
this might seem like a good opportunity to see more of Poland - on your
way back it may get disastrous as the trains are far from being
reliable. The delays of 30-60 min are not uncommon and traveling on such
a delayed train back to Warsaw while having a plane to catch might cost
you a lot of nerves.
Driving to Krakow from the main
Polish cities (Warsaw, Poznań, Wroclaw or Gdańsk) can be a long trip. It
can be a chance to tour Poland, but it needs careful planning.
Distances (driving the highway network) are:
Wroclaw - Krakow: 270km
Warsaw - Krakow: 290km
Poznan - Krakow: 460km
Gdansk - Krakow: 580km
We look forward to seeing you in Krakow!
