UNESCO’s international committee selected Wroc³aw, the biggest city in western Poland, for the 2016 World Book Capital due to the quality and variety of the program to popularize reading proposed by the city authorities.

Wroc³aw was recognized for its focus on the local community involvement, and the promotion of its publishers, booksellers and libraries.

UNESCO has announced a new winning city every year since 2001, which makes Wroclaw the 16th World Book Capital. The winner holds the title for a year, starting April 23 – on UNESCO’s World Book and Copyright Day, which marks the anniversary of the birth and death of William Shakespeare, one of the world’s greatest playwrights of all times.
