Set out for a multimedia journey through the history of the Warsaw Rising. Visit our unique website available in 6 languages!
It popularises the topic of the Warsaw Rising among the young generation around the world, which is why it is available in 6 languages – Polish, English, French, Spanish, German and Russian. www.warsawrising.eu guides the visitor through the history of the Polish capital from the regaining of independence in 1918, through the interwar period and World War II, right up to the city's revival after years of totalitarian oppression. The website focuses mainly on the Warsaw Rising and the price Warsaw and Poland had to pay for their desire for freedom. The website transfers a museum exhibition into the virtual world in an interesting way. Not only can the visitor watch selected museum collections such as archive films and photographs as well as animated infographics, but also better experience the history of Warsaw thanks to the interactive form of the presentation.
The website has won the Website of the Month Award of the renowned AWWWARDS portal which recognises the best Internet projects around the world. Its other awards include the Mobile Trends Award for the best Polish mobile website, the Kreatura Award for web design and a number of distinctions awarded by the Behance portal and the FWA.
