Social events program
During the conference on Wednesday afternoon participants can choose one of the following excursions (cost not included in conference fee, final pricing depends on number of participants):
The Warsaw Rising Museum The Warsaw Rising Museum
Approximate cost: 10 EUR
The Museum is a tribute of Warsaw’s residents to those who fought and died for independent Poland and its free capital city. The exhibition depicts fighting and everyday life during the Rising, keeping occupation terror in the background. Complexity of the international situation at the time of the Rising is portrayed, including the post-war years of the Communist regime and the fate of Insurgents in the People’s Republic of Poland. With the total area of more than 3000 m2, 800 exhibition items, approximately 1500 photographs, films and sound recordings, history of the days preceding the Rising is told.
Off The Beaten Path TRIP Off The Beaten Path TRIP
Approximate cost: 25 EUR
Let me take you for an incredible adventure in the original Polish van called cucumber, symbol of the Polish Communist times. You will ride through time from the pre-war district of Praga to the socialist center of Warsaw. You will see different faces of Warsaw. After this tour full of surprises and emotions you will have a chance to stop for a traditional aperitif with vodka tasting and chill out in a real socialist bar whilst devouring a typical Polish snack. This is the only way to get to know the real Warsaw. It’s nothing like a traditional tour.
The Copernicus Science Centre & Planetarium the Heavens of Copernicus The Copernicus Science Centre & Planetarium the Heavens of Copernicus
Approximate cost: 15 EUR
The Copernicus Science Centre includes hundreds of interactive exhibits where children, young people and adults can carry out experiments demonstrating how the world around us works. The Heavens of Copernicus is one of the most modern and original planetariums in Europe. It offers sky displays, film projections, lectures and meetings. The building of planetarium is located just next to Vistula. Its interior conceals the projection room with a spherical screen with a diameter of 16 meters, which weighs about 3 tons and is suspended over the audience by gigantic chains.
