    Polska.pl, the official promotional website of the Republic of Poland, has now a more attractive and modern look. It shows Poland today and its prominent figures, as well as the most important moments in its history and traditions that could be of interest to foreigners. The website is run by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

    “You won’t be bored. We’ll show you all that is fascinating, extraordinary and beautiful about our country. You’ll learn about Poland through the stories of remarkable Poles. Mostly those who are building and developing our country today, but without forgetting about those without whom Poland would have vanished from the world map and those who have helped Poland enter the European Union and the North Atlantic Alliance,” says Minister Grzegorz Schetyna.

    After its makeover in December 2014, the portal offers not only extensive photo galleries and information about Poland’s most precious historical sites, interesting regions and important cultural and economic events. It also has handy features that will make sightseeing our country easier.

     

    Articles on Polska.pl describing interesting destinations that an internaut wants to visit can be added to his or her trip planner, as if to a shopping basket, to be shared later on social media or emailed to trip companions.

     

    Thanks to the calendar, a feature to be expanded, users will easily check out what’s on during their visit to Poland.

     

    The handy “drawer,” visible on the right hand side on every portal page as a narrow strip with icons, contains links to other pages which promote Polish culture, science and business. All with internauts in mind, so that they can discover Poland, at one place and an easy-to-remember address—Polska.pl or Poland.pl. Polska.pl wants to be a signpost for them.

     

     

    The Portal is edited by the MFA Press Office’s Website and Interactive Division, and presents content structured in five major sections. The “News” contains the website’s latest published material. “Experience Poland” offers a quick glimpse into the country, its customs, holidays and the most famous Poles. “Science and Business” covers achievements in business, economy and science. In the “Tourism” section users will learn about e.g. wildlife attractions and places ideal for active recreation. “Culture” will provide a snapshot of current cultural events, and an introduction to acclaimed cultural figures of the 20th and 21st centuries.

     

    The Polska.pl website, will be expanded with new, interesting, richly-illustrated and multimedia content. It is currently available in Polish and English. A Russian version is scheduled for 2015.

     

    “The new website is not a web encyclopedia of Poland. It’s not supposed to overwhelm users with content and facts. We want its users, who will visit the site mostly once, maybe a few times at the most, to see Poland as an interesting place and a country with a lot going on, where you can spend some time or invest,” Minister Grzegorz Schetyna adds.

     

    The first edition of a portal designed to promote Poland, kept by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, was launched in 2004 at Polska.gov.pl/Poland.gov.pl. The next version opened in 2009. In May 2014, the Ministry acquired the attractive Polska.pl and Poland.pl internet addresses, which started to host Poland’s promotional portal, at that time still in the old layout.

     

    A redesigned website has been developed by Publicis. The website supports the MFA’s mission, an important element of which is the promotion of Poland and broadening knowledge about our country abroad. The cost of the portal upgrade was PLN 122,000.
