From May 31st to June 2nd, 2024, the XXXV Esperantian Days of Krakow took place, attended by dozens of participants, including a large group from the Intercultural Education Center. The event also welcomed international guests from Slovakia, Hungary, and Germany.

    Two segments of the program were prepared by participants from Nowy Sącz, highlighting the significant involvement of our association:
1. Lecture on Erasmus+ Project for Adult Education: Bożena and Marian Kocyk presented a talk titled “Foreign Languages Broaden Horizons” about a two-week English course in Malta as part of the Erasmus+ mobility project for staff and volunteers.
2. Theatrical Performance: The theater group “Gwiazdeczki” (Little Stars) performed the play “Such Towns No Longer Exist,” enriching the cultural aspect of the meeting.

    Over the two days, we enjoyed numerous fascinating lectures, watched Roman Dobrzyński’s films about the Incas and Oomoto in Japan, and listened to concerts and poetry readings. We also sang Esperanto songs together, accompanied by Halina Róźanek on the accordion and Wojtek Ławnikiewicz on the guitar.
    We paid special attention to a presentation by young Esperantist Tymoteusz Smoliński about wild, edible plants growing in Poland, which included beautiful photographs and a tasting session of these plants.
    Magda Tatara provided information about ILEI – the International League of Esperanto Teachers, and Barbara Pietrzak spoke about the online programs in Esperanto produced by Pola Retradio.

    Additionally, there was a report on a stay in Toulouse and a photographic exhibition showcasing the travels of Esperantists around the world. As per tradition, Father Gmyrek celebrated a Mass in Esperanto, and on the third day, an excursion to Niepołomice and its surroundings was organized.
    Participants also had the opportunity to purchase books and the magazine “Pola Esperantisto.”

    We once again had the chance to to reunite with old friends and make new ones!
