    I couldn't find any direct bus or train to Bielany, so what I would do is:
    1) get from the Pyrzowice airport to the centre of Katowice by bus (check the timetable: gtl.com.pl/eng/index.html?pa.... It takes about 40-50 minutes and costs about 20 zl.
    2) get to Oswiecim (Auschwitz) form Katowice by train. The Katowice train station is next to the place where bus from the airpost stops (the big promenade leads to it). The timetable check here: rozklad.pkp.pl/bin/query.exe...
    You will have 0 or 1 change, depends on the train you will choose. It takes between 1 and 2 hours and costs 6-15 zl, depending on a train.
    3) take a taxi from Oswiecim to Bielany. It's just 11 km, it can't be expensive.

    Good luck!
