What to see in Warsaw
Old and New Town
Warsaw was created in the 13th century and by becoming the capital three centuries later was home to the Polish kings for 300 years.
The heart of the city was ripped out by the Nazis during the Warsaw Uprising in 1944 to be rebuilt by its people and placed on UNESCO list as "an outstanding example of a near-total reconstruction of a span of history covering the 13th to the 20th century".
The Royal Route
Starting in the Royal Castle square it led to King's Jan Sobieski residence in Wilanów. Now it's a little piece of Warsaw's pre-war glory, with aristocratic residences of 17-19th century, beautiful churches of all styles and the biggest University in Poland -the University of Warsaw.
The Royal Łazienki Park
Once a summer residence of Poland's last king, today it is Warsaw's biggest and most beautiful park. With its magnificent classical architecture and gardens full of colorful nature, it's a perfect place for a romantic walk far away from the 21st century.
Pre-war Warsaw was a city with the biggest Jewish population in the world (30%). Unfortunately, due to the German occupation and their actions, we have only few places left that remind us of the life of polish Jews from the 1930s and their unbelievable struggle in trying to save their lives during the Shoah.
Back in time – Praga district
The only district of Warsaw not damaged during the Second World War. You can get to feel the pre-war Warsaw by taking a walk through the courtyards of tenement houses from 19-20th century. Today it is home to numerous cafes, clubs and galleries with the one and only Praga atmosphere.

What is included in Economy Pass
Economy Pass is created for those who can't afford Full Pass. As a Economy Pass holder you will be able to spend whole 3 days on 33rd Degree. You are welcome to join keynote sessions (Day 1 before lunch, and day 3 after lunch). However you can't attend other technical sessions and workshops. You are welcome to attend Open Space Conference sessions, BOFs, hackathons and other activities. It also includes lunches and coffee breaks as well as Afterparty.
You are also welcome to attend Economy Track that is dedicated only for Economy Pass holders.
What is Economy Track
Economy Track is dedicated only for Economy Pass holders. It will be just 1 track at the time when Full Conference will provide Technical sessions in multiple tracks and workshops. Some of the sessions from Full Conference might be repeated in Economy Track. Some other sessions might be presented by less known speakers as well as sponsors. However, you can expect good quality and well known speakers as well. You may expect a bit higher participants/presenters ratio. We expect around 400-500 people to attend this track when Full Conference we expect average 200-300 participants per track.
Why Full Pass doesn't include Economy Track
Economy Track is only available for Economy Pass holders in order to accommodate as many people as possible on this very affordable pass. There is high chance that some sessions will be on both Full Conference and Economy Track. So no worries, as a Full Pass holder you will get much more than Economy Pass holders.
