    Przystanek Woodstock (Woodstock Station)

    Poland is beautiful. Poland is my ‘adopted country’ since I married a Polish girl, that I keep on appreciating and discovering through its culture, its magnificent cities and wonderful landscapes
    But what is for me the most amazing is the music festival that takes place every year in Kostrzyn Nad Odra.
    The Przystanek Woodstock (Woodstock Station) festival is simply the biggest rock music festival in Europe. It attracted 700,000 participants in 2011) (*).
    A huge crowd of music lovers meandering through an ephemeral city, going to and coming from the three main stages to vibrate to the rhythms of international rock music. A true city occupied during three days by a very young audience who settles over gigantic areas
    In a cool and peaceful mood, something's happening everywhere... Try the bungee jumping... Have a mud bath... Have a snatch by participating in 'Hare Krishna Food for Peace'... Just smile and enjoy...
    (*) « Przystanek Woodstock (Polish for "Woodstock Station" or "Woodstock Bus Stop" is an annual free rock music festival in Poland, inspired by and named for the Woodstock Festival, that has taken place since 1995. Since the 11th festival its organizers have called Przystanek Woodstock "the biggest open-air festival in Europe”. (from Wikipedia)
