AND OUR SCHOOL
It is a city with nearly 400 thousand inhabitants, for over 7 centuries harmoniously growing alongside the banks of brda and vistula rivers draws its wisdom and strength from the resources of spiritual and material heritage. Bydgoszcz is the capital city of the kujawsko-pomorskievoivodship and at the same time it is the largest city in kujawy.
An extraordinary combination of a convenient communication point, modern economy and rich scientific, technical and business environment places bydgoszcz among cities distinguished by the modernity of economy.
One cannot look at the economic potential of the city, its diversity, without drawing the attention
to the significance of rivers in its development. This is particularly seen on the example of preserved
sluices on the Bydgoszcz Canal and magnificent industrial engineering facilities.
River transport became the flywheel of city's economy in the previous centuries and today it is possible to admire a whole range of preserved examples of industrial engineering connected with water.
Especially many tokens of old Bydgoszcz survived in the city centre. Therefore it is worth visiting the Wyspa Mlynska, which is surrounded by the waters of Brda River. The beauty of the picturesque location of the Wyspa Mlynska is emphasized by facades of eighteen and nineteen century granaries, Rother's Mills, reflected in the Brda River, and they constitute an indelible memory of the city from several hundred years ago.
Development of the city is inseparably connected with the increase in demand for top quality culture. Superb performances on the scenes of the Opera "Nova" and the Polish Theatre attract many art lovers. The citizens of Bydgoszcz proudly participate in concerts in the Pomeranian Philharmonic, in music festivals. The inhabitants of the city and their guests often visit cozy pubs, cafeterias and music clubs and enjoy their unique atmosphere. The citizens of Bydgoszcz combine their interest in culture with their passion for sports. Sports in Bydgoszcz is not only professional, local sport, even though it is on the highest level in Poland, but it is also sport that presents superb European or world sport events.
High School nr 9 in Bydgoszcz was established 3rd July 1991. Having its seat on Jana Sobieskiego Street, it created first bilingual class in the region taught Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, Biology and Music in English. Simultaneously, in the same year it began to realize an International Students Exchange Program, which lasts until today.
