Aleksander Kwaśniewski, the former Polish president, has voted for the Masurian Lake District, the Polish finalist in the New7Wonders of Nature competition.
Kwaśniewski also wrote a letter to the organizers of the campaign, in which he emphasized how unique the region is and how much pride it inspires among the people of Poland:
“Poland is the country of success. We have many assets — great people, great locations and great achievements which make us proud.
Masuria is one of those great, unique locations. It is a true gem, a Wonder of Nature!
Discover Masuria and vote for it in the ‘New7Wonders of Nature’ campaign.”
Aleksander Kwaśniewski served two terms as the President of Poland (1995-2000 and 2000-2005). Today, he is a Distinguished Scholar in the Practice of Global Leadership at Georgetown University in Washington D.C., where he teaches about contemporary European politics and the trans-Atlantic relationship. He is also Chairman of the European Council on Tolerance and Reconciliation, an organization that prepares recommendations for governments on improving interreligious and interethnic relations across the continent.
