Gazeta Polska (literally: "Polish Newspaper") is a Polish right-wing/conservative weekly, founded in 1993. Its editor-in-chief is Tomasz Sakiewicz. Its contributors include: Piotr Lisiewicz, Jacek Kwieciński, Eliza Michalik, Robert Tekieli, Krystyna Grzybowska, Maciej Rybiński, Jacek Łęski, Piotr Semka, Jerzy Targalski, Marcin Wolski, Tadeusz Isakowicz-Zaleski and Rafał A. Ziemkiewicz.[citation needed]

The description of its political orientation ranges from conservative[1] to right-wing,[2][3][4][5] extreme right-wing[6] and nationalist[7] on the far-right.[7][8]

Gazeta Polska is also described as, compared to Myśl Narodowa Polska ("Polish National Thought"), and AK Weteran ("The Veteran of Home Army"), "less radical" right-wing.[9] The Gazeta Polska "offers a good representation of the sympathies of PiS supporters".[2]

Gazeta Polska maintains a number of clubs (Kluby Gazety Polskiej), which are located not only in Poland, but also abroad, in places where Polonia is present (Chicago, New York, London, Dublin, Paris, Leeds, Vancouver, Frankfurt, Berlin, Sydney).[10] The clubs organize meetings with writers, politicians and public figures, rallies and demonstrations. On 15 March 2012 Gazeta Polska organized "The Great Trip to Hungary" (Wielki wyjazd na Węgry). A reserved train left Warsaw Central Station, stopping on the way to Hungary at Radom, Kielce, Kraków, Tarnów and Nowy Sącz. Altogether, 3,000 people went to Budapest, to demonstrate in support of Viktor Orbán.[11]
