Summary/Abstract: The Chinese became interested in Poland and Polish culture at the beginning of the 20th century, at the turning point in the history of Poland and the Middle Kingdom. The first Polish philologists were educated in the 1950s. Today, a dozen or so academic centres in China offer Polish studies. In the 21st century another breakthrough events happen, which stimulate mutual interest: on the one hand, Poland joins the European Union, on the other hand, the Chinese strategy “One Belt, One Road” is implemented. As the relations between the two countries strengthen, young Chinese become more and more interested in Polish language and culture. The author of this text was able to observe this phenomenon when she worked as a lecturer of Polish as a foreign language at Beijing International Studies University (2000–2005) and at China Foreign Affairs University (2014–2018).
