During the first post-holiday session of the Krakow City Council, the councilors adopted a resolution giving the name of Zbigniew Brzezinski to the garden square located on ul Pilsudskiego. This form of commemorating the Honorary Citizen of the City of Krakow and counselor to several American presidents, was requested by Senator Bogdan Klich, who together with the Mayor of the City of Krakow, Jacek Majchrowski and Deputy Chairman of the City Council of Krakow, Sławomir Pietrzyk, unveiled a plaque with the name of the square on October 15.
The United States, a melting pot of cultures and traditions of the various countries its citizens came from, is a special partner for Poland, particularly in terms of culture. In many areas and at different levels, mutual Polish-American cooperation is a natural path of development for both countries. The USA remains a country eagerly chosen by Poles going abroad. It is in the United States that, due to the favorable mood of openness and tolerance of others, it is relatively easy for them to find a new home and work for the development of the country, its culture and local communities. The USA is the country with the largest Polish community worldwide, accounting for over 3% of the entire population of the United States.
September is a time when we particularly dedicate our attention to our heritage. On September 8th, historical cities around the world celebrate Solidarity Day organizing exhibitions, conferences, concerts promoting the idea of world heritage and involving local communities in projects for the protection of monuments. On 12 September 1978 Krakow was included on the UNESCO World Heritage List. This year's Krakow celebrations on the occasion of the World Heritage Cities Solidarity Day were exceptional and highly symbolic.
At the end of July 2020 Kraków’s Mayor Jacek Majchrowski sent a letter to mayors of foreign partner cities in which he declared Krakow's openness to the LGBT community and opposition to homophobia and other forms of discrimination.
