We have decided to increase the number of news stories on Poland we report on! Hopefully in this way this will help visitors and ourselves to up to date with Polish current affairs and what is happening in Poland.

Our news reports will be items that catch our eye or ear through reading Polish language newspapers, listening to Polish radio, and watching the news on Polish television. Some news stories will be very local. Others will be national news. And still others, international news that may concern Poland. We won’t though be seeking out news stories and reporting them ourselves! Our role will be to simply report in English a variety of news stories reported by established news sources writing or broadcasting in Polish.
