Majowka is coming! In the hearts of Poles, long may weekand has a special place. It’s usually first long weekand of the spring we can enjoy with friends and families. It’s the official opening of the barbecue season – as everyone else, we love BBQ!
It’s holiday time in Poland! May 1 and May 3 formally designated ‘free days’ to mark Labour Day and Constitution Day, in between falls Flag Day (May 2) – not officially a holiday, but many will take off from work to allow a long weekend that is called Majówka. It’s the official definition of it. Unofficially majowka is basically picnicking throughout the month of May, a tradition that goes back several generations. It is a reason to take advantage of warm weather and spend as much time outdoors as possible.
Sadly, this year will be a bit different since the hotels and gastronomy is closed due to pandemic for the first 2 weeks. But don’t let it fool you! One day trips will be still on along with the BBQ and meeting with friends!
