2019 is the year of 450th anniversary of the Union of Lublin, a legal act of utmost importance that significantly impacted the history of Central and East Europe and its population. The decisions made in 1569 led to creation of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth, a multicultural, multilingual and religiously diverse country whose legacy affected to various extent the creation of peoples who now live in its former territory: Belorussians, Lithuanians, Poles, and Ukrainians. That was our inspiration for the creation of the exhibition “Equal to Equal. Free to Free. 450th Anniversary of the Union of Lublin”, which is open to everyone interested in the Kyiv Metro.
The author of the idea of the exhibition is Bartosz Musiałowicz, director of the Polish Institute in Kyiv, and its curator is Polish historian dr. Radosław Sikora. The exhibition will be open at the Zoloti Vorota Metro Station from June 11 to July 15, 2019.
