The 2nd World Congress on Logic and Religion was held in Warsaw, the capital city of Poland, at the central campus of the University of Warsaw in the Old Library Building (days 1-4) and in the University Library in Warsaw (day 5).
Warsaw is a very vivid and safe city, with a rich history and a great heritage, offering a wide range of cultural events and charming places to spend time.
It is very well communicated thanks to the underground, train stations and many tram and bus lines, so you can easily get everywhere you want. The city communication tickets are relatively cheap; for 15 PLN, so approx. 4 euros, you can get a full day ticket for all the means of transport: see the pricelist
Anyway, if you come to the city center (e.g. by train) and stay there, everything you need is within walking distance, so there is no need to use public transport.
