Anyhow, I'll make proper research from now on. They have some rules about venue capacity I have read, so maybe there will be tickets this year..? We'll see.
Some information about entering Poland:
you can enter Poland from any UE or Schengen zone country (or Turkey) if you have:
- a vaccination certificate (a vaccine must be approved for use in UE)
- or a healer's certificate (valid 6 months after the healing)
- or a certificate of negative C-19 test (valid 48 hours)
each document must be in English (or Polish).

If you are coming from outside Schengen zone, you need:
- a vaccination certificate (a vaccine must be approved for use in UE)
- or a healer's certificate (valid 6 months after the healing).

In other cases you stay for a 10-day quarantine (and the C-19 test is possible only after 7 days of the quarantine...)

If you have a vaccination certificate you can enter each venue avoiding a 50-percent capacity rule. It simply means that nobody cares about the actual number of people taking part in the event.

I can compare organization of JGP in Gdansk in 2019 and this year: the only difference was the better separation of audience and skaters (audience could enter one half of the rink while skaters/families/coaches the other half). Viewers were asked to use masks but in fact nobody checked if they cover their nose and mouth (I remember groups of students from a local skating school and their coaches who didn't wear masks at all). Nobody checked a number of viewers either.

The only problem is that the situation in Poland is recently getting worse (the number of infected is increasing) and nobody can guarantee that rules won't be changed.

Yeah, it's getting worse here in central Europe, that's why lackluster measurements in Budapest made me really worried, hopefully no one got infected..

Thanks for all the tips! I'm from Czech republic, so I sympathize with the worsening situation in Poland. We are experiencing the same. Who knows what the situation is going to look like next month. I have seen on a website on entry to Poland that the current rules expire on Oct. 31. I'll need to make all I can cancelable in case the situation gets worse, and take a look at testing centers in Warsaw as I'm not vaccinated. I hope my test(s) will be enough, and proper mask wearing everywhere indoors is no issue for me... Do you happen to know if Warsaw Cup is going to have a website? I wonder about their ticket policy. While previously, the entry was free, I can't imagine how that would work if there are limits on the number of people. I'd hate to pay for accommodation and tests and train or plane, to find out the venue is full already and they don't accept any more spectators. I don't think this would happen, but who knows, this pandemic is so unpredictable.
