Culture Shock – Poland

Written by on 13 janvier 2020

Culture Shock is a new series that we have launched on Euradio. Each week we take one European country and put it under the spotlight, looking at its musical and cultural outputs. Each day there are two instalments of the show; one looking at music, and the other at culture. For our very first edition of 2020, we headed east and arrived in Poland!
