If you come by train:

- You have arrived at the Poznan Main railroad station (Poznan Glowny)
- You can get to the Institute by taxi, 5 min ride, about 10 zl ($1=4.4 zl):

The Institute building is located within a walking distance from the railway station (15 min):

... exit the main station building and walk along the only street from there, heading north
... walk for about 400 m, use the left sidewalk
... you are arriving at a big intersection with a circle
... go undrground (look for the circle, not just a pedestrian underground crossing)
... walk north (right branch) and get out on the next normal exit (not just a tram stop)
... above the ground, continue walking north, along the rail track which is on your right, below
... walk for 400 m, turn right on an old-fashioned tram bridge
... just past the bridge, there are (hidden) stairs leading downstairs to a park
... go to the park and continue on a footpath for 200 m (the path is unlit during the night)
... exiting from the park, you are facing one of the villas belonging to the Institute
... continue on the small street in the same general direction for 50 m
... there is a big gate on the right with the Institute's name on the wall
... use a push-button phone to talk to the janitor if the gate is closed

The route is explained on a map here.

- You are driving on cobblestone pavement. On the right, there is a big vegetable market.
