Hello Greek Forumers :)

My name is Paul and I come from Poznan, western Poland. I would like to ask for your help. I have some text in English which I'd like to have in Greek as well.

Just 4 weeks ago together with other forumers from Poznan, I've started campaign "We want to fly from Poznan". We have a very nice airport, which stands unfortunately empty almost all the time. :( Thanks to complicate situation and structure of ownership in the company "Poznan-Lawica Airport" and the lazyness of our politicans we don't have may flight connections, although in the neighbourhood of the airport (100 km) you can find 4 million inhabitants!

That's why we've started this campaign, and off course we would like to have some flights to Greece from our city :)

Our web page is working now only in Polish:
but we would like to have it in 14 languages
Greek as well

If You could be able to translate this English text into Greek and send it to our e-mail: [email protected] I will be very gratefull

When You will come to Poznan, let us know, we will have :cheers:

thanks, :) greetings :)

We want to fly from Poznań!

Poznań is a beautiful and fascinating city, regarded as a gateway to Western Poland. Over 1100 years of vibrant history, multiethnic past, astonishing monuments, interesting people – all this influences the unusual atmosphere of the city, which witnessed the birth of polish statehood. Dynamically developing Poznań transforms into a modern European metropolis.

Unfortunately the city doesn’t have enough air connections. This situation breeds problems for all of us – the inhabitants of Poznań, and also our guests coming to the city from all over the world. We realize, that good transport availability is a basis of development of the economy, tourism and interpersonal contacts.

That’s why we are worried about the present state of development of Poznań Ławica International Airport. We think that local authorities (of the airport, city and region) don’t notice the demand for air connections from Poznań and they don’t care about it’s development. That must be changed.

Our campaign is an answer to the present situation prevailing at the Poznań airport. We must show to the decision-makers, that we want to fly from Poznań, and that we want to make it easier for our guests, from Europe and other countries of the world, to get here.

Let me show the pics made by our colleague Subs, yesterday during the celebrations of 50th anniversary of the so called Poznan’s June 1956” – first anti-comunistic revolution which in Poland. There is a web page describing the whole story of 1956. There is a strong connection between this what has happened in Poznan in June 1956 and this what happened in Budapest in October 1956.

Please visit it to learn more – it is in English as well:

Some tram routes had to be changed for celebrations:

Decorated Opera House:

Guests have come ;)

An exibition outside the Emperor’s Castle – a tank and children:

The official part of celebrations took place on Adam Mickiewicz Square – in 1956 – Stalin Square, a place where 100.000 pepole come to protest in 1956:

5 presidents have participated in ceremony – Czech, German, Hungarian, Polish and Slovak:
