Grand Show on the Vistula River is something really worth to see. This spectacular performance will be done by the use of pyrotechnical effect, light, water curtains and sound. However, most important elements of the show will be the gigantic dragons – up to 25 m long and 15 m high! Animated by actors form Groteska Theater, various creatures will fly and swim in Vistula river!

According to Polish government's decision Poland restores full border traffic within the internal borders of the European Union, so there will be no border controls introduced in March. From now on, the services present at the border will only carry out random checks.

This means that from Saturday 13 June it will be possible to freely cross the internal borders of the European Union. Citizens of the European Union will be able to enter Poland without any obstacles, without having to quarantine.

International flights are planned to be restored from June 16th.
