Poland’s Constitution Day commemorates the adoption of the country’s Constitution on 3rd May 1791, which was the first modern written constitution in Europe and the second in the world, after the United States Constitution.

The event also featured cultural performances, music, and a display of traditional Polish cuisine, including delicious dishes such as pierogis, kielbasa, and bigos.
