Krakow lights up one last time for the USA, Great Britain and... the Polish health care personnel!

On March 30 key municial buildings were illuminated as a gesture of solidarity with countries particularly affected by the coronavirus epidemic. The LED screen of Krakow Arena displayed the colours of the U.S. flag, the ICE Krakow Congress Centre was illuminated in the colours of the United Kingdom, and the Bernatka footbridge shone in the colours of our Polish national flag.

In this symbolic way Krakow wanted to manifest its unity with the Americans and the British, but also to thank all the Poles who are currently fighting for our health and lives.

The white and red illumination was a symbolic gesture of respect for Polish doctors, rescuers, medical workers and all those involved in the fight against the epidemic at the national level. The people of Krakow appreciate your work very much and thank you!

We hope it is a gesture of solidarity for all!
