Poland at your home
Despite the pandemic, the difficult situation and restrictions in many countries where Poles and people of Polish origin live and work, the Polish Ministry of Foreign Affairs would like to address the needs of our compatriots – especially children and youth – who wish to keep in touch with our national culture, history and literature.
As part of the "Poland at Your Home" campaign, run by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, we invite you to take advantage of the online offer of Polish cultural institutions. Take a virtual stroll around various museums and learn unforgettable history lessons courtesy of the Institute of National Remembrance, the Polish History Museum, the National Museums in Warsaw and Krakow as well as the Warsaw Uprising Museum. Polish students and teachers are also welcome to explore the educational programme prepared by the Ministry of National Education and to take advantage of its offer. The Centre for the Development of Polish Education Abroad, which has been providing distance education for many years, offers a number of valuable tools that will allow you to gain new knowledge and skills across a range of subjects and topics.
As part of the campaign and to celebrate the Day of Polish Community and Poles Abroad, we announce a contest for children and youth. For more information, go to the webstie.
