Welcome to Polish Poster Gallery

Polish Poster Gallery

The Galeria Grafiki i Plakatu (Polish Poster Gallery), located in the splendid Old Town area of Warsaw, houses what is undoubtedly the finest collection of graphic art and posters in the country - and perhaps even in Eastern Europe. The Polish Poster Gallery was established in 1975, and now proudly exhibits over 5,000 posters and pieces of graphic art, all of which display some facet of Polish culture. Visitors will see theatre, music and cinema posters - as well as the pick of the lot, fantastic Polish Solidarity political posters - designed by greats such as Cieslewicz, Stasys, Gorowski and Sadowski. The posters have an iconic style, and are an interesting way to get to grips with Polish culture. The museum also has a great selection of prints for sale (about 2,000 different designs), and these make for fantastic gifts for friends and family back home.

Information & Facts

No. 23 Old Market Square, Warsaw Old Town
The national language is Polish. English is widely understood in tourist areas.

The official currency is Zloty (PLN), divided into 100 groszy. Poland is essentially a 'cash country', and it is difficult to negotiate credit cards and travellers cheques in the cities, and well nigh impossible in rural areas. American Express, Diners Club, Visa and MasterCard are, however, accepted in places frequented by tourists. ATMs are also beginning to proliferate in Polish cities, where the sign 'Bankomat' indicates them. Money (preferably US$ or Euros) can be exchanged in the cities and larger towns at banks, hotels or bureaux called 'kantors', which offer the best rates. Banks are open Monday to Friday from 9am to 5pm and some are open on Saturday till 1pm.
