YSF Venue and Travel


https://2019.febscongress.org/ficheros/YSFVenue1_c_19-14-01.jpgThe 19th FEBS YSF will be held at the Faculty of Chemistry, located in Krakow’s Jagiellonian University Campus in the vicinity of ICE Krakow Congress Centre, historical district of Kazimierz and close to the Main Market Square. The meeting areas of the Faculty of Chemistry will provide the perfect venue for scientific discussion during the YSF (3–6 July 2019).

Krakow is one of the most popular travel destinations in Central Europe and is a beautiful and vibrant city, located by the Vistula river. Krakow’s Old Town, along with Wawel Castle and the city’s Kazimierz district were placed on the First World Heritage List, created by UNESCO in 1978. The Jagiellonian University in Krakow is one of the oldest Universities in Europe.


Accommodation for YSF participants for both the 19th YSF (3–6 July 2019) and the ensuing 44th FEBS Congress (6–11 July 2019) will be at the Vanilla Aparthotel in shared rooms (8 nights). Vanilla Aparthotel offers well-equipped standard apartments, lobby, viewing terrace, restaurant and shopping arcade. 

YSF participants do not need to book a room or pay accommodation fees. The YSF Organizing Committee will take care of this, in collaboration with the Congress Organizers and FEBS.

Navigating your way around Krakow will be easy since the tram stop is 100 m away from the hotel and 200 m from the YSF venue. You can reach the YSF venue from the hotel in about 5 min by public transport and 15 min walking. When travelling to the very centre of the city, you can be there in less than 20 min by public transport. The ICE Krakow Congress Centre is less than 15 min by public transport from the hotel.


Directions to the hotel and YSF venue will be available nearer the time of the event.
