      Polish National Day

    • The Polish National Day takes place on May 3 in honor of the first Constitution of this country which was adopted on 3 May 1791. The Polish constitution was written by the bourgeois and nobles of the four years diet under the rule of the last king of Poland and Grand Duke of Lithuania Stanislas II.

      This constitution was the first constitution voted in Europe. It covered many essential points to reform the institutions and organize the life of the Polish people:

      - it recognized rights to farmers

      - it keeps the hereditary monarchy and its executive power

      - it declared the political rights of representatives

      - it limited the size of the standing army

      - it imposed land management.

      Since then, the 3rd May has become a yearly holiday celebrating the adoption of the Polish constitution.
