Insurance and travel tips

As the course fee does not include health insurance, you are responsible for buying your own health/travel insurance for your stay in Cracow if your regular health insurance does not cover medical expenses incurred in Poland. 


The official Polish currency is Polish Zloty (PLN), 1 zloty equals 100 groszy.

Money can be exchanged at banks or numerous exchange bureaus (Polish: "Kantor"). The exchange bureaus closer to the city center usually offer better rates than banks.

Travel to Cracow

You are responsible for your own travel arrangements. The following information may be helpful in planning your trip to Cracow.

If you arrive in Cracow by air, you should know that the airport in Krakow-Balice is 11 km away from the city center. In order to get to the city center from the airport, you can take a bus (no. 208, 252 and 902 - the night line) or a train, which is a relatively convenient and quite inexpensive means of transport.
