The head of the President’s Office, Paweł Szrot, drew attention to the special circumstances of the holiday: this is the second celebration of the anniversary of the adoption of the Constitution on May 3 during the Russian aggression on Ukraine.

– The Constitution of May 3 is the achievement of all the nations that made up the First Polish Republic – not only Poles, but also Lithuanians, Ukrainians and Belarusians. I think this will be included in the president’s message – said Szrot. He added that the president appealed for the presence of “all Varsovians, Poles, including our guests from Ukraine” at Castle Square to celebrate the anniversary of the adoption of the Constitution on May 3.

May 3rd National Day

The National Day of May 3 is celebrated on the anniversary of the adoption in 1791 of the Constitution of May 3. The document was the first constitution in modern Europe and the second in the world after the American one. The anniversary of the adoption of the Constitution on May 3 is a holiday established in 1919. During the period of the People’s Republic of Poland, its public celebration was forbidden, and it became a national holiday again in 1990.
