For this purpose it was necessary to undergo the next procedure of accreditation - in the city media centre. Have issued me for three minutes, have given out the admission and have suggested to drink coffee in a special bar. On my question - And as the fan - a zone ? Have answered that supposedly there is nothing while to do there.
