Some locations are close to the main event area, but some are rather far. A few “taxi”-helpers will do their best to deliver and pick you up on time. Please note that due to high demand and the distance of locations there might be a lack of “taxi”-helpers. If you have a driver's license we ask you to use it with your own or rental car.

It’s recommended to use your own or rental car because it makes the journey to Wleń and travelling among locations much easier. 

If you would like to fly to Poland, the nearest airport is in Wrocław.

If you would like to come by train or bus, check if you can stop at Jelenia Góra. Otherwise, try Wrocław.

From Wrocław you can take a bus or a train to Jelenia Góra. And from Jelenia Góra go by bus or taxi to Wleń. If you have any questions or need help, you can ask us on our Facebook page or mail contact@pixelmania.photo.

15. Can I bring an accompanying person with me?

You can bring an accompanying person with you (driver, helper, etc), but you must notify us about him/her beforehand (write us a casual e-mail). Accompanying persons can't cosplay or work as a photographer/videographer during the event.

No. Each of you needs to have a separate account due to the regulation law in Poland. But if you can't go separately, you can add this in information in "Why me?" label during joining the event on BookMe platform.
