Neon Signs of Poland

Poland has a neon tradition that dates back many decades. The most famous neon signs are those that started appearing en masse in Polish cities during the Communist period of the mid and late 20th century, but others signs were created well before the destruction and chaos of World War II.

The most vivid and famous neon signs of all were those created after the Stalinist period of Communist rule came to an end during the 1950s and early 1960s. These signs tell tales of state-owned enterprises that may or may not exist anymore in modern Poland and of a form of artistic expression that flourished and took on an identity of its own during during the era of Communism.
