Krakow has great and cheap public transportation, including trains, trams, and buses that span the airport (KRK), the institute (Bronowice station), and the city center (Główny).

  • Bus/tram/train:
    You can buy transportation passes (20 min for 4 pln , 60 min for 6 pln) for buses/trams from many bus/tram stops, on newer trams/buses, or with mobile banking apps. Paper and electronic tickets must be validated on the bus/tram. Electronic tickets require a code (XX-000) that can be found on the vehicle.

    Train tickets can be purchased from kiosks on train platforms and on newer trains.

    For trains, trams, and buses, check Google maps (it is reliable in Krakow!)
  • The main train station of Krakow is Krakow Główny:
  • Our local airport is JPII Krakow-Balice (KRK):
  • Parking is available at the workshop hotel (QHotel -- Bronowice) at a cost of 50 PLN / day / car (The IFJ will not reimburse/cover parking costs.)
