Travel tips

 

 For the duration of the festival, the town of Kostrzyn nad Odrą, which kindly hosts the Most Beautiful Festival in the World, will be introducing changes into its traffic system organization in order to faciliate the movement of vehicles towards the festival parkings and campsites. Please bear in mind that the immediate festival area is to remain car-free and the festival field will be fenced off. You will be able to park your car and set up your camp in the Pole Malinowskiego campsite (Malinowski field), or you can park your car in one of the municipal or privately-owned parking lots located in the viccinity of the festival grounds. In order to help you with festival planning we encourage you to study the maps of the festival field and maps of the parking lots provided by the city of Kostrzyn nad Odrą and private owners.
