Kielce is a historic city and a capital of Swietokrzyskie Province. It is located 180 km south of Warsaw and 120 km north-east of Cracow. More information about Kielce you find here.

A number of flights connect Cracow and Warsaw airports to many international destinations. If you arrive to Cracow by plane, you can get to Main Railway Station (Kraków Główny) by taxi (approximate price 15 euro), by fast train or by buses #192 or #208. Connection between the Warsaw airport and the central railway station (Warszawa Centralna) is provided by regular city buses #175 or fast train. Alternatively you can take a taxi (approximately 10-12 euro).

The Polish Railway timetable is available at PKP timetable.

The FLIXBUS bus company provides comfortable transport between Warsaw/Cracow and Kielce. It prefers booking and selling tickets by internet. Unfortunately bus stops in Warsaw are located far from Main Railway Station.

If you come to Kielce by train, take a taxi to Hotel Kongresowy. The taxi cars are just in front of the station building. The price is about 5-6 euros (about 20 polish zlotys). We do not recommend the public transport, which is actually quite good, if you do not know the city. The taxi drivers usually do not speak English but they will understand "Hotel Kongresowy" or "Hotel Exbud" as it was previously called.

If you plan to go from train or bus station to hotel Kongresowy by city bus please consult  You can use lines no. 13, 34 from bus stop in front of bus station but on the other side of street called Czarnowska. Other possible bus lines are 102, 114, please check ZTM web page for details.

If you come to Kielce by car, take (both from Warsaw and from Cracow) the international road E73. Hotel Kongresowy and the Institute of Physics are located just near the road leading out of Kielce in the direction to Warsaw. If you come from Cracow, enter the town and then follow the signs `Warszawa' (Warsaw). The way to Hotel Kongresowy is quite simple. You need to turn only twice: at first to the right (from Krakowska street to Seminaryjska), next to the left (from Seminaryjska to Zrodlowa).

The map of Kielce and surroundings with main roads you can find at Hotel Kongresowy web site. The Institute of Physics is located just behind Hotel Kongresowy (10 floor dark building) which is very good reference point in Kielce.
