National Independence Day (Narodowe Święto Niepodległości) is celebrated on the 11th November each year to commemorate the anniversary of the restoration of Poland’s sovereignty as the Second Polish Republic in 1918. It is an official public holiday in Poland, and schools, banks, government offices and the majority of private businesses are closed.
