    The stand of the Polish Embassy in Vilnius and the Polish Institute in Vilnius attracted large crowds of visitors with its beautiful baubles with Lowicz motifs, delicious sweets and well-known excellent quality Polish cosmetics at this year’s International Christmas Charity Bazaar.

    The most attractive accent of our stand was the colorful blouses with folk motifs worn by the representatives of the embassy.

     

    “We are promoting ourselves with these delicious treats, gingerbreads, fudge, and marshmallows” – Polish ambassador to Lithuania Urszula Doroszewska said.

     

    Visitors were eager to buy at the Polish stand. Thanks to their generosity, we managed to collect and donate 1593 euros for charity.

     

     

     

     

    This was the 15th year of the International Christmas Charity Bazaar. Altogether 31 countries were represented. The embassies, honorary consuls, and international schools in Vilnius were eager participants, bringing local products and products from their countries.

     

    In addition to specialties from Poland, you could also buy products from Armenia, Australia, Austria, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Finland, France, Georgia, Greece, Spain, India, Israel, Ireland, Japan, Canada, Lithuania, Latvia, Malta, Moldova, Germany, Norway, Romania, Russia, Sweden, Ukraine, USA, Italy, Great Britain.

     

    The Polish stand was visited by Lithuanian Prime Minister Saulius Skvernelis with his wife Silvia Skvernelė, who is the patron of the event.

     

    This year, 10 organizations (nursing homes, organizations working to help children in need and old people's homes) will receive support.

     

    The Bazaar is organized by IWAV (the international Women’s Association of Vilnius).
