Weather in Poland in March

Although March is technically the beginning of spring, it’s usually still cold in Poland and the weather changes often – one week you feel as if spring is just around the corner, and next week there is snow and frost. Average monthly temperature in March in Poland is 3,2°C / 37.8°F, average monthly rainfall level is 37,5 mm (the third lowest after February and April). You can have all kinds of weather in March in Poland. There is an old Polish proverb that says ‘W marcu jak w garncu‘, meaning ‘March is like a pot’ (we can have anything).

Nature starts slowly to come back to life. You may notice first flowers blooming: white snowdrops (przebiśnieg) and yellow, white or purple crocuses (krokus). Another symbol of early spring in Poland – willow twigs with buds (bazie). You may notice them in almost every park in Poland or buy a willow twigs bunch at any florist or shopping market.

Holidays, observances & celebrations in Poland in March 2020

March is one of the few months when there is no bank holiday in Poland (in 2020, Easter holidays fall on April 12-13).

  • March 8

Women’s Day (Dzień Kobiet)
The tradition of Women’s Day is not as popular as during communism time in Poland, but still, women usually get flowers or other gifts.

  • March 17

St. Patrick’s Day (Dzień Świętego Patryka)
Poland also celebrates St. Patrick’s Day – people wear green, there are parades, festivals, concerts.

  • March 21

Truant’s Day / Skip Day (Dzień Wagarowicza)
The first day of spring. The old Polish folk tradition of the first day of spring is to drown Marzanna (a straw figure of a woman symbolizing winter) in the nearest river (nowadays mostly in rural areas and by children at schools). For children, the first day of spring is a Truant’s Day / Skip Day (Dzień Wagarowicza). Some students skip classes but usually, it’s just a special fun day at school – students dress up in a funny way, schools organize competitions and games, there are no tests on this day.

  • March 29

Time change (zmiana czasu) – on Sunday, March 29, 2020 at 02:00 am clocks are turned forward 1 hour to 03:00 am. The last time change in Poland (and in other European Union countries) will happen in 2021. The European Union lawmakers decided to end the twice-a-year (March and October) custom of time changes throughout the European Union, leaving member states the freedom to decide their standard time. The national governments have yet to take a stance – countries that decide to be permanently on summertime would change their clocks for the final time in March 2021, countries that opt to be on wintertime would change their clocks for the final time in October 2021.
