Ministerstwo Kultury i Dziedzictwa Narodowego


Remembering the Past, we look towards the Future.

The Ministry of Culture and National Heritage accomplishes  the state policy in range of executing and coordinating tasks related to culture - theater, film, music, ballet, opera, visual arts, cultural education and promotion of Polish culture in the international arena as well as international cooperation in the field of culture. The Ministry of Culture also performs tasks related to heritage conservation and recapture of the Polish cultural heritage abroad. In addition, it is responsible for protection of copyright and related rights, which is an essential condition of development of culture and European audiovisual agenda.

Entering the European Union imposed a lot of responsibilities on Poland, though it also created possibilities to benefit not only from new financial sources, but also from European experiences in the area of culture support and protection.

In connection with preparations for the Polish Presidency in the EU Council the Ministry works on and supervises national and international cultural program of the Presidency.
