One of the most outstanding cultural and theatrical events - Shakespeare Festival - was held in the northern capital of Poland.

International Shakespeare Theatre Festival is one of the great cultural events in Gdansk, which is dedicated to the theaters of Queen Elizabeth I era and works of one of the greatest playwrights - William Shakespeare.

Shakespeare Festival was first organized in 1993 at the initiative of Theatrum Gedanense Foundation. Originally it was called Gdańsk Shakespeare Days and was renamed for Shakespeare Festival in 1997, the year of the Millennium of Gdansk.

Shakespeare Festival is traditionally held on the first week of August and is designed to attract public attention, and in particular young people, to the most diverse manifestations of the theater. Current Festival will be attended by theatrical groups from the UK, Sweden, Finland, Lithuania, Romania, Portugal and Russia. Plays will be staged in Gdansk, Sopot and Gdynia.

One of the participants of the festival is the Russian Theatre from Yekaterinburg under the direction of Nicholai Kolyada, which will present to the public Hamlet and King Lear.
According to the artistic director of the Shakespeare Festival Jerzy Limon, 18th Shakespeare Festival in Gdansk in 2013 will be held in the reconstruction of the real Shakespeare Theatre, which was built in Gdansk in 17th century.
