Opening of a new exhibition at the Adam Mickiewicz Museum in Istanbul

I very much hope that the Museum will continue to develop and bring closer the figure of the eminent Pole in Turkey,” wrote the Deputy Prime Minister, Minister of Culture, National Heritage and Sports, Professor Piotr Gliński, in the museum's visitors’ book.
