Singer Kayah will be among the stars taking to the stage at the free, two-and-a-half-hour concert at the Polish capital’s National Stadium on November 10, officials have said.
On Independence Day, November 11, Warsaw will host a colourful Independence Festival on the city’s central Krakowskie Przedmieście Street.
Deputy Culture Minister Jarosław Sellin said families would be able to enjoy parades, listen to Polish music, taste Polish cuisine, and see fashion from the inter-war period as well as antique cars and horse-drawn carriages.
"The point is to take a step back in time to see what Poland, Warsaw, and Krakowskie Przedmieście looked like in the inter-war period," Sellin added.
Poland regained independence on November 11, 1918, the day World War I ended, after 123 years of partition by Russia, Austria and Prussia.
