We invite you to a meeting about Turkish culture organized by Erten Altintaş. You will learn, among other things, what is the newly established organization Turkder.org, that unites Turkish community and promotes Turkish culture.
After watching an episode of very popular TV series about Turkish history, we will have a discusion about Turkey and its connections with other countries, especially Poland. There will also be something for your stomachs – we will enjoy some traditional Turkish dishes.
