Come and discover rich Polish literature and famous Polish writers

Poland has contributed significantly to world literature with quite a number of works that have become classics as for example Solaris or Heat of Darkness and also contemporary works such as Sapkowski’s The Witcher. Poland numbers no less than five Literature Nobel Prize winners: Henryk Sienkiewicz, Wladyslaw Reymont, Czeslaw Milosz, Wislawa Szymborska and Olga Tokarczuk. Add Isaak Bashevis Singer who wrote in Yiddish to this impressive roster, and Poland would rank sixth among the winners of this prestigious prize! Further notable figures of Polish literature who have achieved worldwide fame are Joseph Conrad, Stanislaw Lem and Ryszard Kapuscinski.
