Life & work
As you can see in the table below, Poland celebrates 13 public holidays throughout the year. If a holiday falls on a Saturday (e.g. New Year’s Day), employees are entitled to an extra paid day off on top of their annual leave. When a public holiday falls on a Thursday or Tuesday, a lot of Poles usually decide to take one day leave and enjoy a longer weekend.
To make the most of your time off, take a look at our list when planning your year ahead. You may also want to keep these dates in mind if you prefer to travel off-season!
