Festival of Freedom

Festival of Freedom

On 4th and 5th June 2018, we invite you to attend the Festival of Freedom, which will abound in attractions. This will be an opportunity to celebrate the restoration of democracy in Poland.

During mutual breakfast at the round table, with scrambled eggs, bread rolls and coffee prepared by Robert Makłowicz, we will go back to the year 1989 together with the Mayor of Wroclaw to remind the participants of those events and tell those who do not remember those days about Poland's road to democracy in Wroclaw.

To manifest our joy, we will march along with a parade of vehicles from the Market Square towards ul. Graniczna, where plaques with the names of Rondo 4 Czerwca and ul. Zbigniewa Brzezińskiego will be officially unveiled. Then, in the afternoon, we will participate in the discussion panel What has Poland given to the world?

The Festival of Freedom is a series of events organised to celebrate 100 years of Poland’s independence.
