You might see some movies about Warsaw Uprising, but do you know there’s an awesome anniversary event in Warsaw as well, which is to honor the Warsaw insurgents and heroic people fighting for their capital in 1944.
🏃♀️ Every year on July 27th, thousands of runners come together to honor the memory of Warsaw Uprising by completing a 10 km or 5 km running race in Warsaw. Last year was the 29th time, more than 13,000 people participated in the race to commemorate the efforts of thousands of people who stood up against the Nazi German occupiers. While due to the ongoing epidemic, a virtual run will replace the outdoor activities hold in Warsaw this year, which is an event “for new times”.
🏅 It also means that everyone around the world could take part in the race, which will be held on the last weekend of July. There is also an optional package for participators including a commemorative medal, a pin and a band for commemoration purposes.
😃 Warsaw is a city full of life, you can find lots of activities here, such as biking along the Vistula river, making polish dumplings, enjoying Chopin Concert, or more adventurous activities like indoor skydiving and Bungee jumping.
