This year's Piastonia will last from May 20th to May 25th. Traditionally, it will be dominated by concerts and entertainment on the campuses of Opole universities.
The most spectacular part of the student carnival is scheduled for Wednesday, May 22nd. Traditionally, students of the University of Opole and the Opole University of Technology will walk through Opole in a colourful parade. They will leave at 1 p.m. from the Pryzma hall of residence on Mikołajczyka Street. Then they will follow the route to the UO campus and from there to the Market Square, where, as every year, there will be a symbolic handing over of the keys to the city, over which students will take control for a few days.
After the symbolic handing over of the keys, the procession will return to the UO campus, where a musical surprise - a concert, and many other attractions - will await.
