The capital's youngest residents have a lot of fun in store in the beautiful gardens of Wilanów Palace on International Children's Day, June 1.

Children from all over the world will be meeting up in the courtyard of the Wilanów Palace Museum and in the front park at 11 a.m. for Obudźmy marzenia (Let's Awake Dreams). The event, which finishes at 6 p.m., is being organized by the Akademia Wilanowska association and the Wilanów Palace Museum.

Children's groups will be representing a plethora of cultures on stage, including American, Arabian, Japanese, Russian, Greek, German, Mongolian, Bulgarian, Hungarian, French, British, and Ukrainian. Realtai, Poland's leading young Irish dance troupe, will be putting in an appearance as will the Mazoviacy Children's Folk Group, the Kuźnia Artystyczna from the Wilanów Cultural Center, and a children's orchestra from Warsaw's Stanisław Moniuszko Music School.

There will also be martial arts displays from across the globe, with capoeira, sumo, aikido and karate all being represented. Masters from the Samurai School and top-notch archers will be demonstrating their skills as well. Children can try their hand at fencing with the help of a coach and can even relive the days of the knights of old. The Polish-French Atelier Graines d'Artistes is running competitions with valuable prizes to win. Original works by the atelier's junior members will be on display and children can even try some outdoor painting themselves.

Several organizations that support children will be setting up stands including UNICEF, Amnesty International, the Polish Aid Foundation for Children of Tibet-NYATRI, and the Committee for the Protection of Children's Rights. The Fundacja Dzieci Niczyje (Nobody's Children Foundation) will be presenting a program entitled Bezpieczny Internet (Safe Internet).

Cracow's Fundacja Świat Dzieciom will be giving first aid instruction. Animal welfare organizations the Pegasus Foundation and the Fundacja Zwierzęta Niczyje (Nobody's Animals Foundation) will also be setting up stands.
