Warsaw's Z這te Tarasy (Golden Terraces) shopping center marked the European Day of Languages Sept. 26-27. Attractions included concerts of Greek, Austrian and German music and an opportunity to listen to fairy tales from various corners of Europe.

The organizers encouraged visitors to familiarize themselves with the diverse cultures of Europe. Guests attended open foreign language lessons, including German. There were also classes held in Spanish, Greek, French, Portuguese, Italian, Dutch and even Basque. An added attraction was a competition to win a language course at a selected culture institute as the top prize.

The European Day of Languages has been celebrated since 2001 at the initiative of the Council of Europe.

The Z這te Tarasy event was co-organized by the representative office of the European Commission in Poland and 10 European cultural institutes in Warsaw working as part of the European Union's National Institutes for Culture (EUNIC) network.

The event's partners included the Goethe Institut, the British Council, 珺terreich Institut, Institut Francais de Varsovie, the Greek embassy, Instituto Camoes, the Dutch embassy, the representative office of the Flemish government, the Cervantes Institute, and the Italian Cultural Institute.
