We have had  wonderful summers since we started the cultural festival week at the palace of Sztynort in Masuria, Poland, in 2017. Find the best memories from the previous festivals and out exhibitions in our archive.

Team and Concept 

Walls of a palace are not only held together by bricks and mortar. We believe that they are also created by people, their connections, their longings , their memories, their conversations, and their creativity. Stn:ort brings you together at this unique place.

Stn:ort Pałac Festiwal is organized by Lehndorff-Gesellschaft Steinort e.V. , Stowarzyszenie Tratwa Olsztyn, Instytut Antropologii i Etnologii (Adam-Mickiewicz-University, Poznan). We are financially supported by: Lehndorff-Gesellschaft Steinort e.V., Stiftung für Deutsch-Polnische Zusammenarbeit/ Fundacja Współpracy Polsko-Niemieckiej, Deutsche Botschaft in Warschau. 

 Travel and Accommodation

Sztynort is a small village near Węgorzewo in Northern Masuria, Poland. It is seated on a peninsula and surrounded by lakes, fields and forests. Here is how to get there and where to stay.


Support Cultural Events of Stn:ort

There are different ways, in which you can support us and our cultural and heritage activities in Sztynort. Becoming a visitor to the festival is the best start you can make. If you want to get more involved, you can become a volunteer for Team Stn:ort.

Some of our former visitors have offered us financial support. In the last year this enabled us to invite great musicians, such as accordionist Yegor Zabelov.  If you want to express your support that way, we will accept. For those of fast action, direct donations for the cultural programme can be made here. Our festival camel (see picture below) will gladly accept.

We are hoping to soon be able to raise money for humanitarian and environmental causes and adopt partner projects.
