Białystok is the largest city in north-eastern Poland and the capital of Podlachia. It is the gateway to many natural attractions of Podlachia, known collectively as the Green Lungs of Poland, including Biebrza National Park and Białowieża National Park. Białystok is also the place of birth of Ludwik Zamenhof, the inventor of the artificial language, Esperanto. The city hosted an international Esperanto conference in 2009.
The closest Polish public international airport is the Warsaw Chopin Airport in the capital, located some 200 km away. This airport is served by most major normal and low-budget airlines. The convenient way to get to Białystok from there is to take a bus no. 175 to the Warsaw city centre and then take a train or a coach to Bialystok. There is a direct coach connection from the airport operated by Polski Express. Although the coach spends less time in Warsaw and therefore arrives in Białystok quicker, the prices can be twice as high and you have to book your tickets in advance.
