If you are from EU you need a valid ID card. If from outside you need
a passport. It would be good if you have a written and hand-signed
agreement of your parents that you can attend Wikimania and freely
travel in Poland. You won't legally attend some late evening meetings,
as it is strictly forbiden to provide alcoholic beverages to people
below 18, and organisers won't be able to control if you drink beer or
not :-)
