November 15th - 17th

The Orle Gniazdo hotel, Szczyrk, Poland

About the conference

Can you remember PHPCon Poland? This highly integrative conference with a soul that helped build the Polish PHP community?
We want to revive it! We want to recreate what many of you miss and remember the most!
How?Returning to the place where you feel the best, the Orle Gniazdo Hotel in Szczyrk, giving you the opportunity to book rooms and board together with your conference ticket. Together we can make this conference a part of Polish developing events calendar again!
The agenda will include six Friday's workshop paths of various topics and two lecture paths on Saturday and Sunday.

Of course, the php Central Europeconference, which was created on the basis of PHPCon and moved abroad, will be continued. Its formula, place and participants have their own specificity and are so different that they can both coexist.

So… see you soon in Szczyrk!

See how cool it was in Orle Gniazdo

CKiR Orle Gniazdo **/***

This is the hotel that hosted us in the years 2013-2014. Remember that? With a beautiful view on the Skrzyczne mountain, pleasant conference rooms and friendly staff.
Orle Gniazdo is the highest located (660 m asl) and the largest multifunctional facility in Szczyrk. It has 6 floors and is over 270 metres long. It has a total of 270 rooms with a view of Skrzyczne and the Żylica Valley, with bathrooms and TV. It can accommodate up to 550 people at the same time.
Orle Gniazdo is a huge and yet affordable hotel, famous for organizing large, regular events. It is here that the Polish Chess Championship is held, private concerts are played and international conferences and rallies are organized. The finish line of the third stage of the Tour de Pologne cycling race is also located here.


Public transport
Get to Katowice in any way you want and change to the Koleje Śląskie train to Bielsko-Biała (timetable ➡ here).Then take the footbridge to the bus station and take the bus to the Szczyrk Centrum bus stop (timetable ➡ here). You can get here with any bus going to Szczyrk. Cross the main road to Słoneczna Street, then right into Klimczoka/Wczasowa Drive which rises sharply uphill in switchbacks. The Orle Gniazdo Hotel is located at the end of this road, 2 km away from the bus stop.
Get to Bielsko-Biała, then take the express road S-1 in the direction of Żywiec, Zwardoń and Žilina (SK). Leave the express road at Wilkowice junction (exit marked: Wilkowice - Bystra - Szczyrk). At the first roundabout, take the first exit (to the right, Bystra - Szczyrk), then take the second exit (straight ahead) until the first crossing with traffic lights in Bystra. There turn left and follow the main road to the roundabout in Buczkowice, where you should take the first exit (to the right, DW-942, Szczyrk). When you get to Szczyrk, look for the Orle Gniazdo hotel advertisements - they will be on both sides of the road. Turn into Wczasowa Drive (to the right - beware, it is easy to miss it!) about 1900 m from the "Szczyrk" sign. Then turn right again and go about 2 km up a steep hill in switchbacks again.
Choose Katowice-Pyrzowice (KTW) or alternatively Kraków-Balice (KRK) as your destination airport. From both locations there are buses to Katowice, however, from Pyrzowice these connections are direct and more frequent. Choose the means of transport that will get you to the main train station in this city. Continue as described in "Public Transport".
