An outstanding year ending in 8, a year of freedom, links countries of Central Europe by a moment, when new states arose on its map. Czechoslovakia was founded and its neighbouring Poland regained independence after 123 years. Moods of that time combined with a feeling of liberty are reflected in a performance of Polish professional folk ensemble Śląsk.

Come to commemorate these developments and its anniversaries to a fascinating gala concert in the Opera and Ballet Hall of new Slovak National Theatre building in Bratislava the 8th of November at 6 p.m.
