Leo Kozminski at the National Day of Poland in Kuwait


Welcome to the second part of Leo’s adventure in the Middle East, after having a marvelous time in Dubai, I and my awesome traveling companion Julien with our fantastic mascot headed to Kuwait, and there was an event Leo insisted we had to attend, since he is a Polish citizen and the National Day of Poland was taking place in Kuwait!

The momentous day was on Sunday, May 3rd, aboard the ballroom of the World’s Largest Wooden Ship the Al-Hashemi II, as certified by the Guinness Book of World Records. It was held by the Polish Embassy in Kuwait whose current ambassador is H.E. Grzegorz Olszak. It was a wonderful occasion for the bolstering of ties between Poland and Kuwait.


The event had a lot of delightful guests from around the world, certain acclaimed members of the diplomats and the royal family of Kuwait. It was awe-inspiring to be in such a grand location, and there was a marvelous feast prepared which we greatly enjoyed.

Leo needed to cool down and chill for a while though since Kuwait is so hot, and we did just that.

After this we met with the Ambassador H.E. Grzegorz Olszak, who was very friendly and welcoming with us, and we explained our mission that we want to promote Kozminski University across the world, and that we are students in Warsaw and have been living and engaging in Polish culture and trying to pick up the language for a while. It was a unique experience since I am a Kuwaiti in Poland, and many people here are Polish in my country.

I am very happy that the Ambassador is doing an excellent job promoting both our countries.

We also met up with fellow Polish students who are studying Arabic in Kuwait, and they were leading the booth about Tourism to Poland, and they were very knowledgeable in their fields when it comes to both tourism and the language, and encouraged me to check out different beautiful cities in Poland such as Czestochowa, Wroclaw and Mazury, for more in-depth sightseeing of Poland if you have already been to the unique and popular cities of Krakow and Gdansk.
