Poland is a country with many faces and riches through each of its cities, all different. From the authentic and colorful Poznan, to the cosmopolitan Warsaw, to Krakow, a city emblematic of its history and architectural richness, or the seaside Gdansk, Poland offers all the landscapes, all the experiences. In the heart of Europe, this growing country is attracting more and more attention, due to its cultural heritage, both historical and musical, or gastronomic. At 2:30 a.m. in Bordeaux, Poland has many treasures to discover. The Primary Forest of Bia-owiea or the famous Wieliczka Salt Mines are excellent examples, unique places and must-sees for tourists.

This June 28th, it is one of the Polish treasures that came to Bordeaux, to the delight of sailing enthusiasts, but also for lovers of travel or heritage. Elzbieta Janik’s presentation allows travel agencies to introduce Polish to French people who want to leave and discover new landscapes and is part of a series of cultural projects proposed across 20 countries, on the occasion of the centenary of Polish independence.
The Dar M-odziey is not the first sailboat to dock in Bordeaux. Indeed, a century ago, ships arrived across the Atlantic with more than 20,000 young Polish people on board who came to fight in France from December 1917 to April 1918. This strong relationship, forged over the past century, continues to strengthen today; Bordeaux has been linked by a cooperation agreement with Krakow since 1993.
