• Faithful to my Homeland, the Republic of Poland



  • Bilateral cooperation


    Poland established diplomatic relations with the Holy See in 1919. The Vatican did not recognise the Provisional Government of National Unity, formed in Warsaw on 28 June 1945, and until 1958 it maintained diplomatic relations with the Polish Government-in-Exile in London. In spring 1971, talks on normalisation of relations between the PPR and the Holy See began. A concordat, signed on 28 July 1993 and ratified on 25 March 1998 (it entered into force on 25 April 1998) ended, after 53 years, the process of normalising relations between Poland and the Holy See. In July 1989 the two countries re-established diplomatic relations at the level of embassy and apostolic nunciature.


    In the context of bilateral relations, the most important event in 2016 - the Pope’s visit to Poland on the occasion of World Youth Day in Krakow.
