Travel information:

To get to the town center from the Main Station in Toruń you can either take a taxi or a MZK bus (MZK is a Torunian municipal bus service). A taxi rank is next to the main station, to the left from an underpass leading from the station. A course from the station to the Old Town costs about 15 PLN.

A bus stop is exactly in front of the underpass. There are two lines (numbers 22 and 27) that run between the station and the Old Town. You get off the bus on the first stop just behind the bridge over the Vistula river. The beautiful Old Town will exactly be in front of you when you get off.

The building of the Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Science is about 5 minutes walk west from the Old Town.
