On 20th May the second edition of “Miasteczko na styku kultur – Cultural Hot Spot” will be held. Lectures on various cultures, meetings with international students, tasting dishes from distant corners of the world – these are the attractions planned for the Friday event.

3.6 thousand students from outside Poland study at the University of Warsaw. Most of them come from Ukraine, Belarus, Azerbaijan, China, India and Turkey. The Cultural Hot Spot is an opportunity to present the cultures of their countries.


The organisers have prepared four zones devoted to the topics of multiculturalism:


  • Culture Zone – stands with attractions and information on various cultures;
  • Stage – multicultural music, dance and martial arts performances;
  • Food Truck Zone – dishes from all over the world;
  • The Column Hall –  where lectures and discussion panels will be held with guests, including Irena Wóycicka and Thomas Castrel.


The event will take place on 20th May from 11.00 to 18.00 on the UW campus at 26/28 Krakowskie Przedmieście street.


The event is organised by: the UW Students’ Union Board, the Volunteer Centre of the University of Warsaw, Welcome Point and the Students’ Union of the UW Faculty of Oriental Studies.
