Ready to Join?

It's good this group says "Wroclaw Out" cause this event definitely is OUT of Wroclaw - it will take place in Oslo, Norway.

The event is anything but ordinary. Magic oozes in the air and you can catch yourself thinking you were moved back in time. We'll start from a "casual" concert in Protected content with world-class Opera singers. Then we'll slowly walk together main Oslo's streets in parade with horses, each person holding an old-times fire candle while being accompanied by beautiful carriages. Usually that's the moment people in the streets can't believe this is happening. And all that is only a modest introduction to the masquerade ball in Gamle Logen Palace, which is like nothing you have ever experienced before. You will have the possibility to join small rooms with concerts or go to 2 main dance halls where people dance polonaise, troika, waltz, tarantella and other funny and easy dances. At midnight we will take our masks down and pretend we all just met :)

Couple of things you'll need:
1. If you were ever dreaming about an amazing wedding dress stop! Dress for this ball, sweety, needs to be more amazing, bigger and more sparkly - u know what I'm sayin?
2. You'll need a mask - guys as well! If you wish a wig and a hat.
3. You'll need to deliver yourself to Oslo at least on Friday so we can enjoy local food and you are full of energy for Saturday's ball :)

The event is added in advance for few reasons but most important are dresses! You might think "omg dress... - whatever". Well from experience it is always a problem: you can buy it, rent it, sew it - anyhow choosing the right outfit takes months for this event. Another reason is cheaper tickets to the ball, flight and hotel. Last reason is if we assemble a group, we might be lucky and get some discount - will be useful as Norway ain't a cheap country.

So who's coming?

FLIGHTS:
Ryanair and Wizzair didn't yet post their prices but 19th Jan is low season so tickets should be very cheap. From the airport you'll take a smart bus PKS Oslo Protected content or Polbus delivering you to the door of your hotel.

HOTEL:
The closest and really a cheap hotel is Protected content where the ball starts.

OUTFITS:
You can rent your outfit in Wroclaw from Theater or Opera - this costs in Wroclaw only about 50 PLN. Or you can buy something online. Sometimes a good outfit can be assembled from few pieces in a vintage shop: tight sparkly corset, bottom dress, mask and you are ready to go :) Guys definitely should rent something as for them it is hard to find anything online really.

TOTAL COSTS ESTIMATE (as of October Protected content
Approximately about Protected content for ball tickets Protected content with current discount) + early flight around Protected content + bus to hotel and back Protected content + Smarthotel 2 nights Protected content (single person room) / Protected content (double person room) which gives all together around Protected content with single person room / Protected content with double person room per person.

DANCING:
Prepare yourself it will be whole night of dancing and take comfy, yet ofcourse stylish, shoes! You really don't need to know how to dance - the old dances are easy to learn onsite. People have a lot fun and in the beginning there are teachers showing how to dance. The only thing you need is good mood. And useful is a lot of space on your phone to take pictures ;)
