This very interactive and visually stimulating exploration of Polish heritage was created through a unique partnership between The National Library of Poland, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and the Ministry of Cultural and National Heritage. Entering the site, visitors will hear a dramatic musical score and a series of sections that allow them to look through the French, Lithuanian, Italian, and German influences on Polish culture throughout the centuries. In the "French Connection" area, visitors will travel across an illuminated manuscript to an area that includes a video clip describing the early relationship between French culture and what would later become Poland. This section also includes a brief essay on this relationship and a selection of digitized documents which includes the Wilanow Psalter from the 13th century and the Parisian Calendar from the 14th century. The other cultural sections adhere to this general layout, and overall this site serves as a model for other institutions hoping to create like-minded digital exhibits and collections.
