    Polish Ambassador Zbigniew Gniatkowski together with the Ambassador of Hungary László Szabó jointly opened an exhibition of paintings by Polish artist Anna Proc and her husband Gabriel Heimler "All In The Same Waka" at the Hungarian Embassy in Wellington.

    The exhibition, opened on March 15th, focuses on combining Maori culture with the cultures represented by immigrants from all over the world. The symbol of acceptance and assimilation of new values is a Maori boat called "waka", which is an indispensable element of the artistic duet's most recent work.

    The Ambassador of Poland in his speech referred to a long and rich history connecting Poles and Hungarians. Great Poles have emerged in Hungarian history throughout history. One of such figures recalled by the Polish Ambassador was Józef Bem (1794 - 1850) – a Polish general and engineer, commander of active artillery of the Polish Army during the November Uprising and a hero of the Hungarian Revolution of 1848.
