Christian celebrations are given huge importance due to the predominant Roman Catholic population. Besides Christmas and Easter, any Sunday is good for getting a taste of Polish devotion and religious fervour.
Poland does not disappoint when it comes to cultural festivals. Krakow hosts the Musicin Old Krakow International Festival every August, and Wrocław follows in September with the Wratislavia Cantans. Warsaw is a thriving cultural centre; it hosts a number of events throughout the year with jazz concerts in October. The Warsaw Theatre Meetings in January review the achievements of the best Polish theatres over the past year.
