Hanna Gronkiewicz-Waltz, the Mayor of Warsaw, met with accredited Diplomats for the first time this year. Duly Representatives from nearly 60 countries gathered in Warsaw Rising Museum, and after that they visited the Museum of Chopin and the Copernicus Science Center.

- Currently Warsaw is confronted with a great many challenges: first there is the EURO2012 Championship, also last October the city of Warsaw made it to the finals in the contest for the title of European Capital of Culture in 2016, upseting 6 contestants. I am confident that our city deserves this title - added the Mayor of Warsaw.

Warsaw's growth gains momentum

- Yet again 25% of this year's 3 billion PLN of the national budget went to investments. This is the second consecutive year whereby a quarter of the budget is invested in Warsaw on development projects. The largest capital expenditures is primarily used to build the second metro line and the North Bridge - said Hanna Gronkiewicz-Waltz.

Accredited representatives in Poland visited the Museum of Chopin. The composer's death mask in the black room made a good impression on the visitors. The guests aslo paid a visit to the National Stadium, which is still in progress. Later on that evening, they went on a tour at the Copernicus Science Center.

- The Copernicus Science Center, the most modern facility of its kind in Eastern Europe, represents a symbol of our city in its educational and cultural aspects. I hope that the Copernicus Science Center will contribute to the city's bid to become the European Capital of Culture in 2016 - emphasized Hanna Gronkiewicz-Waltz.
