Twin Cities Polish Festival Minneapolis, MN

Welcome to the Twin Cities Polish Festival in Minneapolis, MN

Welcome to the Twin Cities Polish Festival!

The Twin Cities Polish Festival is a non-profit organization created to bring a world-class celebration of Polish culture and heritage to the Twin Cities. It also helps promote various community-service and Polish-American organizations.

The Twin Cities Polish Festival will immerse Minnesotans and visitors in “all things Polish”, presenting a kaleidoscope of unique cultural and educational displays, food and top-notch entertainment.

Bring a blanket, take a seat on the lawn along the Old Main Street in Minneapolis, visit with friends, watch outstanding musical and dance entertainment, enjoy traditional foods and beverages, and just simply have fun!

You’ll see for yourself why Poland has earned itself the reputation as one of the World’s most hospitable cultures.

Thanks to all of you who made the 2015 Twin Cities Polish Festival a success!

We especially want to thank our Sponsors and all of you who made donations to keep our Festival free to all! Without you and our Sponsors the Festival could not continue to go forward. See you all next year August 12, 13 & 14.

How Marie Curie Helped Save a Million Soldiers During World War I "By 1914 Marie Skłodowska Curie had already made several pioneering contributions to the field of radioactivity, including discovering the radioactive elements radium and polonium. When World War I broke out in Europe that year, Curie saw a way to apply her expertise to help save the lives of wounded soldiers. "She realized that the electromagnetic radiation of X-rays could help doctors see the bullets and shrapnel embedded in the soldiers’ bodies and remove them, as well as locate broken bones. Many hospitals in France already had X-ray equipment, but those machines were often far from the battlefield. "To move the technology closer to the soldiers, Curie and her daughter amassed a fleet of vehicles equipped with X-ray machines and set up 200 radiological units in more permanent posts during the first two years of the war."

The Bochnia Salt Mine - Oldest mine in Poland
... See MoreSee Less

The Bochnia Salt Mine is the oldest salt mine in Poland. The traditions of salt mining in the Bochnia area may be traced back 3,500 years B.C. The origins of the Bochnia mine as a mining plant reach back to the year 1248. The salt mine is the largest treasure of Bochnia lands thanks to its salt deposits which gave rise to one of the most significant economic centres of the medieval Malopolska region. Today the Bochnia Salt Mine is one of largest tourist centres of the region. Guests who arrive to the mine can travel along the Tourist Route leading from the August Level IV to the Sienkiewicz Level VI. The route includes additional attractions such as a multimedia exposition especially appreciated by children. The mine can be visited on foot and part of the route may be explored in an underground train as well as sliding 120 meters down a chute connecting two levels of the mine. Many tourists consider sailing underground in a boat as quite an extraordinary. text via All photos via bochnia salt mine on facebook.
