Lemko’s ABC, that is a meeting of ambassadors of the Lemko world — invitation
Just before the 41st Lemko Watra in Zdynia, we would like to meet you and reflect on what is closest to every Lemko — what is the past, present and future of the Lemko world.
We are facing a challenge, which we will repeat periodically from 2023 in a small, but very charming village Nowica, which aura will certainly positively influence interesting discussions.
This year we are honored to host the following Lemko world ambassadors:
- Bishop Ph.D Arkadiusz Trochanowski — Ph.D of theological sciences, bishop of the Olsztyn-Gdańsk eparchy,
- Professor Roman Wysocki — Professor at University of Maria Curie-Skłodowska in Lublin,
- Professor Jarosław Moklak — Professora at Jagiellonian University in Cracow,
- Professor Jarosław Syrnyk — Professor at Wroclaw University,
