"NESTORIO - Prefecture of Kastoria" Nestorion by StefanosS
Nestorion Travel Guide: 3 reviews and 16 photos
Nestorio(n) is a village 28km far from Kastoria, at a height of 920m above sea level. Near it, every year, on the first week-end of August, the River Party, a great musical event takes place. It is a kind of a "mini Woodstock", organised by the Nestorio community. It started about 25 years ago as a cyclist meeting, but today thousands of people come by any vehicle.
There is a number of rooms in Nestorio, but you have to book one in advance, if you are lucky. Most people camp in the forest, by the river Aliakmonas and a number of singers and groups are invited to participate.
Ticket, valid for 4 days events, is (summer 2003) 25 euros (8,000drs), or 10 euros for one day. Camping is free and there are toilets and showers also free for use.
Some open-air bars and barBQs are functioning 24hours/day.
We are here, in front of our tent. Don't think of accomodation and comforts!
Possibly you will not be able even to sleep, because of music playing all day and night!
Food is just bearable and drinks usually not chilly, but anybody survives!
You can also swim in the river, walk by the river to the springs or drive sightseeing in the area.
The 2003 River Party starts on Thursday, July 31 evening and ends on Sunday, August 3 midnight.
Have a look at:
(but the site is only in Greek, sorry !)
A great experience !!!
