Armenians in Poland have an important and historical presence going back to the 14th century. According to the Polish census of 2011, there are 3,000 self-identifying Armenians in Poland, although Armenian-oriented sources cite estimates as high as 92,000.

A number of cultural and artifacts of Armenian culture can still be found with Poland’s present day borders, particularly in the vicinity of Zamość and Rzeszów. Additionally a number of Khachkars have been erected in front of several churches in Wrocław, Kraków, and Elbląg as memorials to commemorate victims of the Armenian Genocide.
There are also now schools in Poland that have recently opened or added on courses that teach Armenian language and culture either on a regular or supplementary basis in Warsaw and Kraków.

Most Armenians living in Poland today origins are from the post-Soviet emigration rather than the older Armenian community. After the Soviet Union’s collapse thousands of Armenians came to Poland to look for the opportunity to better their life.
