• Faithful to my Homeland, the Republic of Poland



  • 5 February 2019

    Poland’s most famous sailing ship, which from May 2018 has been promoting Poland on its hundredth anniversary of regaining independence, is past the halfway point on its journey around the world. The frigate will arrive at Port Everglades in Fort Lauderdale on February 8. This is its third stop in the United States, after San Francisco and Los Angeles.

    “Dar Młodzieży” will be docked in Fort Lauderdale until February 11. During this time a series of events will be held in celebration of Poland’s centennial of rebirth. Invited guests and the crew will take part in a banquet on the ship as well as in a Polonia Ball organized by Poland’s Honorary Consul in Miami Blanka Rosenstiel.


    “Dar Młodzieży” is expected to arrive at port in the morning hours of February 8. Upon arrival the ship will be greeted by Secretary of State for the Chancellery of the Prime Minister Anna Maria Anders, Deputy Secretary of State for the Ministry of Maritime Economy and Inland Navigation Grzegorz Witkowski, Deputy Rector at Gdynia Maritime University Ireneusz Czarnowski, Poland’s Honorary Vice-Consul in Miami Beata Paszyc, and Minister Counselor at the Polish Embassy in Washington, D.C., Daniel Gromann, as well as by local Polonia.


    “Dar Młodzieży” has already completed more than half of its planned route. Participants have visited many ports, where they received a warm welcome from Poles living overseas. The project’s motto is: “Tell the world about the beauty of Poland.”
