Information

39th Polish Astronomical Society Assembly

9th to 12th September 2019, Olsztyn, Poland


Conference venue

The conference will take place in the building of the Centrum Konferencyjno-Szkoleniowe UWM (ul. Benedykta Dybowskiego 11, Olsztyn, Poland; see map).

Transportation & currency

The easiest way to get to the city center is to take a taxi in the airport (no need to book them in advance). The taxi to the city center costs about 30-40 PLN (10 euro). It's however important to have some local currency (1 euro approx 4 Polish zloty (PLN)), since the driver may not accept euros in cash or credit cards. In general, it's best to use local ATM machines instead of currency exchange points in the airport (called "Kantor").
