Wroclaw is one of the cities that will benefit from the funding
Reports on dziennikpozytywny.pl state the decision was confirmed by the Minister of Culture and National Heritage Bogdan Zdrojewski and already a number of key places of interest have been singled out.
Amongst some of the projects highlighted will be the International Cultural Centre in Warsaw’s New Theatre, Wroclaw’s Pan Tadeusz Museum and the Interactive Museum at Krakow’s National Old Theatre. In addition to these, Malbork’s castle and Krakow’s Juliusz Slowacki Theatre are being touted for renovation too.
The ministry’s website claims; “This will have a nationwide impact due to the complexity of the high-profile activities we have planned. These will protect and preserve our national heritage as well as our established cultural and educational programmes.”
It continues; “These projects - with their unique character - will actively contribute towards promoting our Polish heritage.”
In 2009, Poland received almost EUR 100 mln for similar projects which it put towards work on Krakow’s Cloth Hall, Zamosc’s fortress and a number of basements in Warsaw.
