by public transport:
There are two airports in Warsaw: Chopin Airport & Modlin Airport. Both of them offers direct connections to most Polish & European airports.
The simplest way to get to Warsaw city center from Chopin Airport is by train. There is a direct connection to the city centre from the airport using the service named „SKM” (Fast Urban Railway – Szybka Kolej Miejska) where you should alight at either: “Warszawa Centralna” or “Warszawa Śródmieście”. Of course it is also possible to get to the Warsaw via bus – no. 148, 175, 188 & 331. Detailed information & schedule is available at https://www.lotnisko-chopina.pl/en/public-transport.html
From Modlin Airport you can get a bus or train to Warsaw city center. The simplest in this case is to take a bus directly from Modlin Airport to Warsaw city center. Buses service the route around 50 times a day in both directions. Detailed information is available at https://en.modlinairport.pl/page/bus
If you decide to travel by train to or from Modlin, there is a dedicated shuttle bus from Modlin railway station to Modlin Airport. Detailed information is available at https://en.modlinairport.pl/page/train
Warsaw is a city with well functioning public transportation. So it makes sense that the easiest way to get to the venue in Warsaw is to use public transport. The best option is to go to the nearest Metro station from your location. After that all you need is to get on line no.1 to „Politechnika” Metro station.
To facilitate the use of the public transport, it is worth using an intuitive mobile application on Android and iOS smartphones. It will provides you with a complete set of information on how to travel to any destination using public transport. All you need is to install an application which based on your GPS position, will tell you what time and how to get to your destination in the most optimal way. In the app you can also purchase tickets by paying for them with a regular credit card.
