All Saints’ Day in Poland

1st of November – All Saints’ Day (pol.Wszystkich Świętych) it is a day when Poles commemorate deceased family members and friends by going to the cemetery and laying flowers and candles on their graves.

It is a public holiday which means that the University (along with most offices, shops and schools) is closed on that day.

After Wszystkich Świętych follows Zaduszki (All Souls’ Day) on November 2 which is not a public holiday but many faculties usually announce it as a day off for students and staff.

So, we highly recommend visiting websites of your faculties in order to get more information.
