Poland Pavilion: Experiencing visual world

BEIJING, May 12 -- Among all the dazzling pavilions in Euro Square, the Poland Pavilion might well be the first to catch your attention with its innovative appearance, no matter if it is bathed in sunshine or moonlight.

In spite of the tragic death of its president in a plane crash, "Poland is smiling" - the theme of the pavilion

The 200th anniversary of the birth of Chopin adds even more colour to the present splendour of the pavilion.

The Poland Pavilion is especially charming in the moonlight.

The most impressive feature of the Poland Pavilion rests in its facade, where the abstract and irregular exterior is covered with flowery cut-outs, inspired by the Polish folk art of paper-cutting.
