National Independence Day

National Independence Day is one of the most important national holidays for Poles.

After 123 years of partitions – situations of captivity marked by the struggle, suffering and efforts of many generations of Poles - our country regained its sovereignty in 1918. For such a long time, Poland was not on the map of Europe because it was divided between three powers: Russia, Prussia and Austria. There were no Polish schools and no Polish government. Poles learned the Polish language in their homes and cultivated Polish traditions. Thanks to this, after the end of World War I, on November 11, 1918, Poland regained its independence, and the Polish government was headed by Józef Piłsudski, a soldier, politician and statesman.

Until the outbreak of World War II, the celebration of Independence Day took place only twice, in 1937 and 1938. Then Poland lost its independence for another 5 years. After the Second World War, during communism, celebrating Independence Day was forbidden. Following the decision of the Sejm (Parliament), the holiday was restored on February 15, 1989.

During the annual celebration of November 11, we honour the memory of those who made our independence possible, managed to lift the country from the enormous destruction of World War I and created the conditions for economic development and success.

This day is a day off from work and school. The main celebrations are held with the participation of the highest state authorities in Warsaw at Józef Piłsudski Square at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.
