One of the main characteristics of Polish sociaty is that it is just THAT - Polish people are highly social. Some events happen exactly on the same date and others may vary. If you plan to be in Poland and would like to be part of an event I would suggest you doubble check the exact date of the year in which you visit.
Festivals & Events part II
- Breakfast Market in Warsaw - the Zoliborz neighborhood has something spectacular to offer. Between May 6th and the end of September, every Saturday from 8:00 AM to 2:00PM a perfect atmosphere is created to start the day. Thousands of people, small and large gather together to share a breakfast or brunch with friends and family. This is a great place for meeting new people, having fun, listening to live music and creating friendships. Locally grown and prepared foods of many kinds are ready to be purchased for your delight. There are several locations. Any time we wake up in Warsaw on Saturday morning during our “Castles & Palaces” Tour we will make sure to start our day at the Breakfast Market. What would be a better way to start the day than sharing a meal with happy friends.

Staged battles between Polish Knights and the Teutonic Knights, crossbow tournaments, puppet theatre, food of the time, music and so much more creates a special kind of magic all around you. Make sure to stop by and enjoy the atmosphere of ages past, share your memories with friends then do it again!
- Andrzejki - For centuries Divinations Night for single young ladies was done on the St. Andrew’s Night in November. Single men also have had their own fortunetelling on Nov. 24th the Eve of St.Catherine’s Day. At that time everyone was looking for a potential mate. As time went by, in today’s world singles have fun fortunetelling together on St. Andrew’s Day. Today people gather together to dance, have a real feast before Advent and participate in fortunetelling games. The most popular game at the party is pouring wax through a key hole into cold water, then once solid everyone would look and suggest what possibly could be the meaning of it’s shape. I have always loved this particular party while living in Poland.
