Practical information 2017 Conference

Welcome to all the participants of our 2017 Conference Towards a Biblical Thomism. Thomas Aquinas and the Renewal of Biblical Theology, which will take place April 24-26 in the beautiful city of Torun, the birthplace of Nicolaus Copernicus and a Unesco World Heritage Site. We are looking forward to a most interesting conference with scholars from Poland, the United States, Italy, Spain, the Netherlands, Chile, Switzerland, etc.

Awaiting the conference schedule, which we hope to publish in the coming weeks, we can already inform you about the following:

Venue of the Conference

Nicolaus Copernicus University, Faculty of Theology, ul. Gagarina 37, 87-100 Torun, Poland and Centre of Dialogue John Paul II, Pl. Frelichowskiego 1, 87-100 Torun, Poland http://www.umk.pl/en/

Journey

There are four airports nearby Torun: Warsaw Chopin Airport (distance 220 km), Warsaw Modlin Airport, Bydgoszcz Paderewski Airport (distance 50 km), Gdansk Lech Walesa Airport (distance 170 km), Poznan Lawica Airport (distance 180 km).

The most convenient way for those coming from abroad is to fly to one of the airports in Warsaw. From the Central Train Station in Warsaw one has a direct connection to Torun (duration: appr. 2h 45 min). We would advise to book a train ticket beforehand because the queue at Warsaw Central Station can sometimes be rather long. See http://www.polrail.com/en
