Getting to and from the airport
There are buses connecting the Gdańsk International Airport with Gdańsk city centre (line 110 to Gdańsk Wrzeszcz and 210 to Gdańsk Main Station) and with Sopot (line 122). Alternatively, you can take the SKM train which will also take you to Gdańsk Wrzeszcz, Gdańsk Main Station or Gdynia. The train station is situated right by the main terminal of the airport, with a tunnel for the passengers connecting the two.
SKM (Szybka Kolej Miejska) – a railway transportation system in the area of Tricity (Gdańsk, Gdynia, Sopot).
Getting to the conference venue
The university is well communicated with the centre of Gdansk and Sopot (where some of the conference events will be taking place). You can get there by the SKM train which connects Gdańsk, Sopot and Gdynia – make sure to head for the “Gdańsk Przymorze-Uniwersytet” station and cross the street towards the McDonald’s. The University campus is right behind it and the English Studies building is the last one straight ahead.
Alternatively, take the tram (lines 2, 4, 6, 8, 11, 12, 149, N4, N13) to the “Bażyńskiego” station, which will take you directly to the campus itself.
NOTE: If you plan on using public transport, but do not want to keep track of the various ticket types, prices, zones and operators, we recommend purchasing a 24 (21 zł) or 72-hour (42 zł) metropolitan ticket which from the moment of validation allows you to travel within the Tricity on any bus, SKM train, trolley or tram.
Important: when taking the SKM train, remember to validate your ticket on the platform BEFORE you board the train as there are no validating machines on the trains themselves and the penalties for invalid tickets can be steep.
For fast, effortless and efficient transportation in Tricity, we highly recommend taking a taxi. Taxis in Poland are fairly inexpensive in comparison to other countries. We especially recommend Komfort Taxi (telephone no. 19621).
For approximate prices between the conference venues and the city centres of Gdańsk and Sopot, see the map below. Please bear in mind that the prices may vary slightly, depending on the part of a day, traffic and the taxi company.
