Public Holidays

Public holidays in Poland 2021-2025

In the predominantly Catholic Poland you can basically find the whole range of Christian holidays. As in only a few other countries, Easter Sunday and Whit Sunday are public holidays here, although they fall on a Sunday.

The list of public holidays may look remarkably long at first glance. The Polish commemoration days, the "Day of Solidarity and Freedom" and the "Day of National Education" are special in this respect: although they are national holidays, they do not count as work-free days.
