THE SOCIAL EVENTS

2 June 2010 (After all the sessions of the day.)
Belarus is a land of fairly well-kept secret. In this lovely wonder land, with luck, you'll find something that could not be discovered elsewhere.
- Excursion to the forest which they say the biggest one in Europe.
4 June 2010 (After the last morning sessions).
From outside Belarus, we have two options of air trip. One is via Minsk and the other is via Warsaw. Unless your airport have a direct flight to Minsk, it might be more convenient via the Warsaw airport, which they call "Chopin Airport."
ACCESS TO BREST
- Via Warsaw Chopin Airport ... Take a bus No. 175 at the airport which takes you directly to warsaw Central Railway Station. You can buy the ticket for train at the Casa No. 15 and 16 (They say these 2 are for international line, not in English but in Polish though). The price is about 30 Euro. The timetable of the train from Warsaw to Brest can be seen at Train Timetable. Enjoy breathtakingly beautiful scenery from the train window for around 4 hours.
Unless your airport has a direct flight to Minsk and none to Warsaw, we strongly recommend via Warsaw.
- Via Minsk Airport ... Take a bus No. 112. The buses are available almost once every one hour from 07:10 to 22:35. It takes around 1 hour 20 min (41km) to the city center. It will cost 4000 Belarus Rubles (BYR) which is approximately 2 USD. Unfortunately it is not to the Minsk railway station, but either of the big bus terminals. Yet another city bus would be necessary to the railway station. It's not convenient coparing from warsaw. Or, you may take a taxi directly to the railway station. It would cost 40 Euro, if you are lucky.
Here you might find a simple map from Brest Center railway station to the University which includes three cafe/restaulant within walking distance from the university.
ACCESS TO UNIVERSITY AFTER ARRIVING BREST RAILWAY STATION
We have three options. (i) Trolleybus No. 1, 2, or 3 ... 600 BYR; (ii) Mini-bus No. 6, 11 ... 1,100 BYR; (iii) Taxi ... about 15,000 BYR. (Note that 10,000 BYR = 3.3 USD as of 25 MAY 2010) Important notice would be, inconveniently, we have to find place for each option around the railway station. See the map of arround the station. This map is specifically to know where could we take trolleybus, mini-bus, or taxi to the university.

We don't have a hotel within a walking distance from the conference site. So, in order for convenience we have already kept rooms in one Hotel as a default.
- Hotel Vesta (16 Krupskov street. 16)
This is not a new hotel but some local people proudly say "This is the best hotel in the town." Price is approximately 28 euro for a standard single room per night.
- If you want a new modern style hotel or not very convenient but cheaper hotel, please try to contact us.
- We also have a couple of guest rooms in the University dormitory. This is for almost free, but unfortunately we have only a limited number of this fascility. So we put priority to young participants from foreign countries.
