INTRODUCTION TO COSMOLOGY
Cracow, 2020, Jul 18th - Aug 2nd
Under the honorary patronage of the Rector of the Jagiellonian University, prof. Wojciech Nowak
The Project is financed by the Polish National Agency for Academic Exchange under the Foreign Promotion Programme
Unfortunately, due to coronavirus outbreak, we have to postpone our School. July 2020 will not be a safe term for the School, therefore we have to change it. Please bear it with us and be vigilant for our news about the new date. The 5th Cosmology School will take place, but in safer time. Due to this postponement, the registration will be extended, but please refrain from paying fees for the school and dormitory for now. Pre-registered participants will have priority in the school admission.

Public transportation in Cracow is safe, fast and relatively cheap. Below you can find
some tips how to get
to most important places. Please remember that you need a ticket to make a ride. Ticket machines can be found at many
stops and in most vehicles (if there is no ticket machine in a vehicle the driver should sell you a ticket).
Stationary machines accepts cash and credit cards. In vehicles some accepts only coins while others only cards. If the
tariff table looks complicated use just
a 50-minute ticket (4.60 PLN). It should cover most of one way trips in Cracow. The ticket must be punched once after first
boarding immediately. You can change to another vehicles with that kind of ticket as long as it is valid (50 minutes from
the punch). The vehicle must be one of Cracow public transport vehicles of course (all trams and most buses; they are
mostly in blue-white and have displays with line numbers).
There is a lot of museums in Cracow.
