About the conference

PHPCon Poland is the oldest and unique conference in Poland, aimed at PHP developers and enthusiasts. We have been on the Polish market since 2010. During this time, we have contributed to educating of a new generation of PHP developers!

This is an event where you will make new contacts and exchange experiences and ideas for the near future. But not only! It's a conference you'll love coming back to, both for the atmosphere and the new contacts, but also for your own development - as a listener, as a speaker, or maybe as a recruiter looking for new talent. Who knows?

This year, PHPCon Poland for the first time will take place in Wisła, a town often called "the pearl of the Beskid Mountains”.

It is a uniquely picturesque mountain resort located close to the Czech Republic and Slovakia, surrounded by the mountain ranges with the highest massif of Barania Gora (1220 m.a.s.l). Three mountain streams join each other to create the river Wisła – the Queen of Polish rivers. The town of Wisła is the hometown of Adam Małysz – the world champion of ski jumps.

It's a modern hotel located in Wisla, in the Jawornik valley, well known to Polish skiing enthusiasts. It is here that the road leads to one of the most popular ski resorts - the Soszow Ski Resort. Nearby is the border with the Czech Republic.

Thanks to its picturesque location, it's even an ideal place for family recreation, enjoying the mountain scenery, skiing and relaxing at the spa, pool or the hotel's bowling alley.

Its conference facilities include as many as 16 modern equipped rooms, (the largest up to 450 people), 1,300 sqm of exhibition space and 4 hectares of land around the hotel.

Public transport
Wisła is pretty well connected to the capital of the province - Katowice. You can get here both with line S6 🚆 of Koleje Śląskie/Silesian Railways (8 trains a day, 👉 route timetable) and buses 🚍 - Drabas (👉 timetable) or Bus Brothers + Wispol (lines: 52, 53 and 54) with a change in Cieszyn.
Get off at the Wisła Jawornik bus stop (or Wisła Jawornik Skrzyżowanie in the case of buses).
Head towards Jawornik village or Soszów ⛷️ ski station - the same direction. Walking from the roundabout by the Orlen station it's 15-20 minutes to the hotel, by asphalt. The hotel is on the right, turn into the side road before the school.
The easiest way to get to Wisła is from the Skoczów interchange. You can get there from Cieszyn (boundary with Czech Republic) and Bielsko-Biała by taking the 🛣️ S-52 expressway and Katowice by the two-lane national 🛣️ road no. 81. From the Skoczów interchange, head south along secondary road no. 941 to the roundabout at Jawornik (about 15 km). Take the first exit here - Jawornik / Soszów ⛷️ ski station and after 1k7 metres you'll reach your destination. Turn right before the school building.
As in previous years, ✈️ Katowice Airport (KTW) is the best destination. From there, you need to get to the centre of Katowice by ZTM bus or Koleje Śląskie / Silesian Railways train (👉 route timetable) and continue as described in the Public transport section.
Alternatively, you can fly ✈️ to Kraków (KRK) and catch a 🚍 bus connection to Cieszyn (e.g. Lajkonik) from the city centre. If you choose Lajkonik, asking 🙏 the driver to stop near Jawornik / Orlen gas station is a good idea, as he officially stops in the centre of Wisła only.
We plan to organize a special shuttle from the KTW ✈️ airport and back to make the connection more convenient especially for foreign speakers. Note that we don't plan a shuttle from and to KRK.
So, if you're a confirmed speaker, contact organizers before you plan your trip.
