As 2023 slowly draws to an end, many of us are looking ahead to 2024.
Whether you are anticipating the next year’s celebrations, or perhaps just would like to plan your paid annual leave, our calendar of public holidays in Poland might just be the thing for you.
There are many advantages of planning your time off early. Though probably, the best one is that if you play your cards right, you could take some time off around public holidays, and effectively have a longer time to rest and relax from work.
Should the national holiday fall on Saturday – do not worry. If you are working under contract of employment, you will be entitled to an additional day off as a compensation.
It is also worth remembering that during public holidays certain changes in the regular way of live can be noticed, for example:
- there are retail restrictions, so most of the shops and companies will be closed,
- public transport can operate according to Sunday/holiday timetable.
