Muzeum Polskie w Rapperswilu

Rapperswil, Switzerland

The Museum, which lodges in the 13th century knights castle, is situated on a peninsula in the Lake of Zurich; it has a history of more than 140 years. The history of the Polish Museum in Rapperswil encompasses three periods: 1870-1927, 1936-1952, and from 1975 until now. The harmonious co-operation between Poles and Swiss has been the museum's main characteristic. It has been based on the ideals shared by both nations. The basic idea is common to Poles and Swiss alike; it is expressed on the Polish Column of Freedom in front of Rapperswil Castle: "MAGNA RES LIBERTAS" - Freedom Above All.
