The Polish Class сommunity was officially established in 2002 and since then it has been a vivid and distinctive part of the Polonium of Uzbekistan along with the Polish Cultural Center of Uzbekistan “Svetlitsa Polska”, the “Zazheve” urban center, and our compatriots in Bukhara and Samarkand. The aim of the different types of activities of our organization is the revival, maintenance and development of national traditions and customs, as well as to study the native language, Polish culture and history.
People of different ages and nationalities, who attend the Polish class, are spending quite useful time learning and having discussions about Poland’s culture, history and geography, enjoying literary and musical competitions, thematic quizzes, and also taking part in local historical excursions and trips to the nature organized by administration. The most popular theme of discussions that are held at our meetings is the historical interconnection of the Uzbek and Polish people, the beauty and originality of their national traditions. All of the members of the Polish class community are united by a common interest of the culture and traditions of Poland. They come to class in order to socialize and practise Polish language, and celebrate the national holidays of Poland and Uzbekistan.
The assistance in organizing and running different events and activities is provided by volunteers who traditionally come to our organization from Poland. At the same time The Committee on Interethnic and Friendly Relations with Foreign Countries under the Cabinet of Ministers of the Republic of Uzbekistan, the Friendship Society “Uzbekistan-Poland”, The Centre for the Development of Polish Education Abroad (Ośrodek Rozwoju Polskiej Edukacji za Granicą, ORPEG), The Foundation Aid to Poles in the East (Fundacja Pomoc Polakom na Wschodzie), MultiOcalenie Foundation (Fundacja „MultiOcalenie”), Association “Polish Community” (Stowarzyszenie “Wspólnota Polska”), as well as the Embassy of the Republic of Poland in the Tashkent and the Polish construction company “Budmex” are taking a huge part in organizational and methodological support in the work of the “Polish Class” community.
