A taxi from the airport should be around ≤ 20 PLN during the day (the official taxi queue is when you leave the airport, don’t go with the people who whisper “taxi, taxi”). Here is a link for accessing the school from the airport using public transport (bus 175 or 188).


The school is part of the grant Lipa that has received funding from the European Research Council (ERC) under the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme (grant agreement No 683080).
