If you are planning to study in Poland, it must be obvious that you are interested in when Polish students have rest. Of course, Polish universities and holidays are two things which are going together. As a rule, holidays start on 23 February and finish on 1 March. Summer holidays start on 20 June and the start of the academic year is 1 October. You will also have long days-off from 20 December to 2 January, which are the Christmas holidays. It is necessary to add that everybody who had chosen to study in Poland have a chance to be present at pre-holiday’s sale. But you should always remember that in Poland shops are closed on holidays.
In Poland there are a lot of different holidays. Most holidays are religious, because Poles are Catholics. There is no doubt that Christmas and Easter are the greatest holidays for Polish people. Beside these, here people celebrate the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Green holidays, The Three King’s Day and others. The most famous national holidays are The National Flag Day, Constitution Day, and The Labor Day.
There is one more holiday which all Polish students are fond of. This is Juvenal! This holiday is celebrated several days and during these days students do not have classes. Polish universities usually arrange such holidays in May. The organization is impressive, because you can see a lot of concerts, participate in competitions and contests between students and simply have fun. During the Juvenal there is a transfer of power to students, so if you were not at the Juvenal, you did not study in Poland!
When you start your studies in Poland, you will get an opportunity to learn all traditions which are very interesting and meaningful.
And now, there is a “tasty” part, some particularities of Polish cuisine. While studying in Poland you should try zurek, knodel, flyachky and bigos. Perhaps these dishes are a little bit unusual at firstglance, but all of them are very tasty. For example, Bigos is almost the same braised cabbage which everyone has eaten. A dish called Zurek is a delicious soup with sausage, smoked meat and eggs. These dishes are served in every student’s cafeteria and various cafes and restaurants, so you will have an opportunity to try them.
To conclude, if you are sure about your decision to study in Poland, delicious dishes and amazing events are guaranteed.
