30 Years of German-Polish Friendship

To start the commemorative month marking the 30th anniversary of the German-Polish Friendship and Neighbourhood Treaty, German Ambassador Dr. Arndt Freytag von Loringhoven unveiled an artwork created especially for the occasion on June 1, 2021. The Buddy Bear, designed by Polish artist Kinga Offert, featuring motifs of cooperation, now stands at the entrance to the German Embassy in Warsaw. "Poland and Germany have been neighbours for a long time - this agreement has opened the door for us to become close partners and friends," von Loringhoven said.

The Buddy Bear will embark on a grand tour this fall, touring eight Polish cities. This tour is a campaign of the Goethe Institute aimed at promoting the German language.

Worldwide, well over a hundred Buddy Bears stand in front of German missions and institutions abroad, including the Consulate General in Gdansk.
