FAQ

The deadline for submitting all travel information is Lord’s Day, 25 June 2023.

Please remeber that it is the responsibility of each registrant to notify the Transportation Team at transport@ypconference.eu if you were not able to submit your travel information in time or if your travel arrangements change after the deadline.

Transportation to and from Małe Ciche is only available from/to Kraków Airport as follows:

For Arrivals –

  1. Saturday, 29th July 2023 (flights between 9am and 6pm)
    The last Conference shuttle will leave the airport at 6pm. If your flight is scheduled to arrive after 5:30pm, then you should arrange your own accommodation and take the Conference shuttle on Lord’s Day 30th July 2023.
  2. Lord’s Day, 30th July 2023 (flights between 9am and 2pm)
    We recommend arrivals before 2pm as you are more likely to arrive to the Conference in time for dinner and the first meeting. The last Conference shuttle will leave the airport shortly after 2pm, so you should look for flights that arrive before 2pm.
     
    We can help large groups arriving later to pre-book transportation, but we will not remain at the airport to wait for you.

Please note that Conference-arranged transportation from any other place and on any other date can only be made by special arrangement in coordination with your Country Coordinator if you are travelling with a group of 20+ saints.
 

Please remember that any young person who arrives early or leaves later must be accompanied by a serving one.

The Conference provides transportation from/to Kraków Airport only. If you need to travel from the train station to the airport or vice-versa, please make your own travel arrangements. There are trains (SKA1) operating frequently between the train station and Kraków Airport. You may also travel by taxi.

The train takes about 15 minutes and tickets cost 17zł. A taxi takes around 30 minutes and costs 40-50zł.

No blending trip in Kraków after the Conference has been planned so far. However, the church in Krakow invites any saints who are interested to join the Lord’s table meeting in Krakow after the conclusion of the Conference on Lord’s Day, 6 August 2023. Place and time of the meeting are to be determined.

Travel plans should be organised with your Country Coordinator and solidified before the Conference. If, however, your plans do change, please notify us by email immediately at transport@ypconference.eu. We will try our best to assist you with transportation to/from Małe Ciche; however, due to the limited Conference shuttle schedule, there is no guarantee that we will be able to provide transportation for you. You can, alternatively, take a public bus or taxi.

Flights should be booked following the instructions given on the registration form and in coordination with the saints in your cluster and with your Country Coordinator. We recommend booking flights that arrive no earlier than 9am. If your flight arrives at an earlier time, you will need to wait at the airport until the Conference shuttle service begins.

Flights should be booked following the instructions given on the registration form and in coordination with the saints in your cluster and with your Country Coordinator. We recommend booking flights that depart on the evening of the last day of the Conference (Saturday, 5th August) so that you do not miss the last message or the next day (Lord’s Day, 6th August) after 9am.

If your flight is outside of this time window, you will need to make your own way to the airport by public bus or taxi. Alternatively, you could take the transportation provided by the Conference to Kraków Airport or Kraków Train Station on the last day of the Conference (Saturday, 5th August) and stay closer to the airport that night; you will need to arrange your accommodation in Kraków yourself.

The Conference may also help to arrange transport from Katowice Airport (KTW)*, Rzeszów (RZE) Airport, or Przemysł for large groups travelling together (at least 20); however, this is not an option for individual saints. 

*A Conference-arranged shuttle may be available from Katowice Airport (KTW) depending on how many saints booked their travel through there.

We will try to arrange your transportation so that you do not have an excessive waiting time at the airport but this will not always be possible. This is especially true for flights that depart very late in the evening, e.g., after 9pm. We would ask you to take grace in this matter and enjoy spending extra time with other Conference attendees while you are at the airport. If there are a number of hours between your drop-off time and check-in for your flight, you could consider taking a short trip into Kraków on the train.
