Comarch will financially back the Polish Museum in the town of Rapperswil in Switzerland. It is one of the oldest Polish museums the collections of which include paintings, medals, old maps, sculptures, and military items that relate to the Polish culture and history.
The Museum was established over 140 years ago and is located in the 13th century Rapperswil Castle. It was founded by Count Władysław Plater and played a major role in the cultural life of the Polish emigration and the movement for national independence.
- We are very happy with the financial support provided to us by Comarch, a company with a strong financial base that has been operating globally. That support is a token of the Company's commitment to the common history of Poland and Switzerland, stresses Anna Buchmann, director of the Polish Museum in Rapperswil.
Presently, the rooms of the castle display numerous treasures of culture, as well as the items of a religious worship, historic paintings, and documents of historic importance.
