Poles celebrated National Independence Day on Monday. It commemorates the country regaining independence after 123 years of captivity (1795-1918). It was established pursuant to the Act of April 23, 1937. Before the outbreak of World War II, only two such celebrations took place.

Central celebrations took place in the capital, and major politicians attended. Independence March also passed through the streets of Warsaw for the tenth time. In many cities and towns there were parades, marches, runs, masses and shows of reconstruction groups. 

Many Poles spent this time actively. Commemoration runs, like the Warsaw's Independence Run, were organized, attracting several thousand runners, Nordic walkers, wheelchair athletes, and rollerblade enthusiasts.
