“There are three purpose built mosques in Poland, with another mosque currently under construction.
However, many more buildings of this kind existed in Poland in the past, owing to the traditionally tolerant laws for religious minorities, including the Muslim faith. During the first half of the 20th century, however, there were cases when it was impossible for mosques to be built because of complexities outside the legal framework. The current legal situation permits construction of sacred buildings by officially recognized denominations, including Islam. Today there are few Muslims in
Poland, approximately 25–35 thousand people, which constitutes about 0.07–0.09%1
of the population.
This article presents the history and legal status of mosques in Poland, with emphasis on the 20th century and the present.”
