40 euro: a room with two separate beds
20 euro: one bed in a shared room
10 euro: a sleeping couche in the living room
Please contact the organisation if you are interested in sharing an apartment with other players. Otherwise, a good place to look for accommodation is booking.com.

Recommended places to stay are Nečujam and Rogač. Both have a beach and are relatively close to the playing venue. Transportation from Nečujam to the Hall of Commons will be offered for a small compensation.

Transportation

Several airlines can take you to Split directly (e.g. Easyjet from Amsterdam, Transavia from Rotterdam). From there you can take the bus to the main bus station, that is close to the ferry port. There you take the ferry to Šolta (Rogač), see time tables.
