Irish-Polish History Exhibition in Warsaw's Lazienki Park

Irish-Polish History Exhibition in Warsaw's Lazienki Park

A new Embassy exhibition on the history of connections between Ireland and Poland will be on display at Warsaw's Lazienki Park for the month of August.

The Irish and Poles are often described as kindred spirits: two peoples who, although separated by geography and the currents of European history, have much in common.

For long periods of our history, connections were shaped by encounters between Irish and Polish people. In recent decades the Irish and Polish peoples and states have formed deeper and lasting bonds. Today, Ireland is home to a large and welcome Polish community.

‘From Strangers to Neighbours: Encounters between Poland and Ireland’ is a new exhibition produced by the Embassy of Ireland outlining some of the personal narratives that have linked our countries, from surprising encounters of centuries past to the enduring connections of the present day.

The exhibition is on display for the month of August at the Royal Łazienki Park’s outdoor gallery on ulica Agrykola. It is in English and Polish. Entry is free.

The Embassy is delighted that the Royal Łazienki Museum is our partner for this exhibition.
