Grapevines are growing near buildings 1 and 6 of Igor Sikorsky Kyiv Polytechnic Institute now. This is a gift from the Section of Alumni of Igor Sikorsky Kyiv Polytechnic Institute in Poland.

At the end of May, its management approached Vice-Rector for International Relations Sergii Sydorenko with a proposal to plant grapevine which is a symbol of vitality and prosperity at Igor Sikorsky Kyiv Polytechnic Institute in honor of the 100th anniversary of the public organization uniting Polish graduates from the university.

Vice-rectors Vadim Kondratyuk and Nataliia Seminskaya, students and employees of the International Collaboration Department and the Ukrainian-Polish Center of the university gratefully supported the idea of decorating their alma mater.

The representative of the Section, Andriy Yaroshevsky, brought the vine seedlings and handed them over to the university. He also shared his many years of experience in planting and growing grapevines with the specialists of the Choir Department of Igor Sikorsky Kyiv Polytechnic Institute. And on June 16, representatives of the Department of International Collaboration, Choir Department and the Department of educational work, students of the Educational and Research Institute of Mechanical Engineering planted plants outdoors together with him.

As the deputy director of the Ukrainian-Polish Center of Igor Sikorsky Kyiv Polytechnic Institute, Anna Bidnyuk, told "Kyiv Polytechnic", this is Isabella grapevine, which is resistant to our climatic conditions. 15 grape vines were planted. When they grow, a special espalier will be built for them. And in three years you can expect the first harvest.
