    On 15 May 2019 a reception was held at the Embassy culminating celebrations of Polish National Day around Australia.

    After the events which took place in many Australian cities, including Adelaide, Brisbane, Melbourne, Sydney and Perth, we celebrated the anniversary of the adoption of the 3rd of May Constitution with a solemn reception at the Embassy.

     

    Ambassador Michał Kołodziejski stressed that this year, along with the 228th anniversary of the adoption of Poland’s 3rd of May Constitution, we also celebrate three other key anniversaries in the Polish modern history: thirty years since the elections that began Poland’s transition to democracy in 1989, twenty years since Poland’s accession to NATO as well as fifteen years since Poland joined the European Union.

     

    Marta Nowicka (soprano) and Carl Rafferty (on the piano) performed Polish and Australian National Anthems. The artistic program also included works of Fryderyk Chopin and Stanisław Moniuszko, considered the father of Polish opera, as 2019 marks the bicentenary of his birth.

     

    Among our guests were representatives of Australian government, diplomatic corps, think-tanks and Polish community organizations.

     

    The celebration also included a special screening of the film "Cold War". The event, organized in cooperation with the ANU Film Group, gathered a large group of Polish cinema lovers.
