-------------------------------------------------------- GETTING THERE

Warsaw is currently undergoing heavy construction work, and without much
prior warning tram traffic around the camp venue (Soho Factories) has been
closed down. Because of this, we recommend taking a taxi or the light rail.

+ TAXI: Taxis should cost about 20-25PLN/ 5-6EUR from Warsaw city centre.
Make sure to grab a taxi with an official sticker on its front window that
charges a fare of 1.80-2.50PLN per kilometre. If you'd like to call a taxi,
we recommend Super Taxi (number: (0048) 22 196 22 or (0048) 22 186 61). Once
you get to Mińska 25 (venue address), ask driver to enter complex through
gate and take you to Building 63.

+ LIGHT RAIL OR TRAM: The easiest stop to reach is the Warszawa Środmiescie
stop next to Centrum subway station, or the Warszawa Powisle stop next to
the De Gaulle Square (Stations are shown on main google map here:
http://g.co/maps/ygxd3) and take train in direction east to PKP Dworzec
Wschodni railstation. Be sure to buy '24h' or '3day' tickets and take the S2
train on the SKM system. Map of route is shown here: http://ow.ly/71T4n. You
can also take tram number 22 from city center, direction Dworzec Wschodni do
Bliska stop. Exit tram, turn Left and cross the street to left side, turn
Left again to Bliska street which leads to Mińska street, then turn Right
and go to Soho factory Entrance (all shown on main map).
