Poland - Leisure, Entertainment and Sports

Theatre, cinema and musical festivals are favourite forms of leisure in Poland, with visits to art galleries and museums also being very popular among Polish people. There are many cultural and music festivals held throughout the country, particularly during the summer months. Street theatre and open air concerts are common in Warsaw, Krakow and the other cities. All tastes in music are covered, from jazz to classical. Warsaw is home to internationally-acclaimed theatre groups, opera and ballet companies and the National Philharmonia, and also hosts the annual Polish film festival.

Sports are also very popular in Poland, with many international sports competitions being held in the country, including athletics and boxing. Soccer is extremely very popular both as a spectator and participant sport. Cycling is one of Poland's more traditional leisure and sports pastimes, particularly in the northern lakes region.
