Culture.pl is a large web portal devoted to Polish culture. It was founded by the Adam Mickiewicz Institute in March 2001. Written in Polish, English and Russian, the site promotes the work of Polish artists around the world and is a popular information database on all artistic aspects of Polish culture. Its ISSN number is 1734-0624.
As well as acting as a database, the site covers current cultural events related to Poland, especially those that take place in other countries. According to its website, as of 2015 Culture.pl has around 38,000 articles (8,000 of which are in English) shared across the categories Music, Visual Arts, Film, Theatre, Dance, Literature, Comics, Architecture, Photography, Design, and Other. While a large part of the site is on Polish artists and their works, there is also information on around 700 cultural institutions such as museums, galleries, philharmonic halls, theatres and art schools. Many articles are written in English and specifically aimed at international audiences.
The portal was founded in March 2001. The project was initially conceived and designed by Andrzej Lubomirski, who also acted as editor-in-chief until 2008. Subsequent editors-in-chief have included Monika Rencławowicz (2008 – 2009), Elżbieta Sawicka (2009 – 2012) and Weronika Kostyrko (2012 – 2016).
In 2010, the monthly magazine Press named Culture.pl the best Polish-language cultural portal on the Internet.
In 2015, the portal won the "Culture on the Net” category in TVP Kultura’s annual “Guarantee of Culture” awards. The prizes recognise the most interesting and important Polish cultural stars of the year.
