Kazimierz Dolny lies on the Vistula, about a hundred and twenty kilometres south east of Warsaw, the closest international airport and railway hub. A minibus will be organised to take workshop participants from Warsaw to Kazimierz and back at the start and end of the workshop. If arriving on a different date, it will be necessary to make your own way down to Kazimierz.
Apart from the minibus, the easiest way to reach Kazimierz from Warsaw is by train to Pulawy and then either by taxi or by bus to Kazimierz. The trains to Pulawy run from the Warsaw Central station every two and a half hours or so (if arriving at the airport, the best way to reach the central station is by bus 175 or the rail link – the ticket is 3.40 PLN). It is best to use the on-line rail route planner (leaving 'Warszawa Centralna’ arriving 'Pulawy Miasto’) to find out the exact times the trains run. The cost of the rail ticket is under 30 PLN in second class and under 45 PLN in first class.
The most convenient connection between the Central (or Zachodnia) train station from the Warsaw airport is the rail link. To plan your journey from the airport to Puławy using the online rail route planner, enter „Warszawa Lotnisko Chopina” as the beginning of the journey.
In Pulawy there is a taxi stand just outside the station. The trip to Kazimierz is only 14 km (about 35 PLN).
Another way to get to Kazimierz Dolny is by a direct minibus. Most minibuses start from a stop „Plac Defilad”, which is opposite the Palace of Culture and Science in Warsaw — a short walk from the main train station (Warszawa Centralna or Śródmieście, if you’re using the airport train link). You can find the online bus planner here. The drive takes around 3 hours, and buses usually sell tickets directly (one has to pay in cash, the price is around 30 PLN).
An important tip: Do not, by mistake, go to the 'other’ Kazimierz, which is a suburb of Kraków.
