  • There are no reserved parking spaces around, so make sure to take that into consideration when arriving. Be eco and ride a bike or scooter, be faster and take the subway (Timpuri Noi Subway station) or share a ride directly here. Just make sure to get here in time for the show, we wouldn’t want you to miss anything
