11th November marks the 105th anniversary of Poland’s independence. For the sixth time, at Krakowskie Przedmieście, a festival was held to mark the occasion. The event was co-organised by the University of Warsaw.
The “Niepodległa” Festival is a series of concerts, parades, dance workshops and attractions for children, which have been taking place at Krakowskie Przedmieście since 2018.
