The Swiss Academy of the Alpine Horn was founded in 1998 and it deals with the promotion of this traditional musical instrument in Switzerland and all around the world. The Alpine horn is inseparably connected with the culture of Switzerland. Because the loudness of the sound its used by the shepherds in the Alps for distance communication. The musicians were accompanied by the Deputy Ambassador of the Swiss Confederation, Mr Chasper Sarott, who during the visit appreciated several times the involvement of the city authorities in cooperation with the embassy. Vice Mayor of Łódź Mr Krzysztof Piątkowski, who welcomed foreign guests focused on historical intimacy between countries, mentioning among others Polish national heroes such as Adam Mickiewicz, Ignacy Jan Paderewski or Gabriel Narutowicz, whose fate was closely related to Switzerland.
