The annual Lednica Youth Meeting was held virtually this year due to the coronavirus pandemic.

In previous years, thousands of young Polish Catholics gathered in the Lednica Fields in the west of the country for an event that usually ends with a walk at midnight under a massive structure known as the "Fish Gate" and symbolising Christianity.

The prayer vigil is traditionally held near where Poland's first ruler, Mieszko I, is thought to have been baptised in 966 AD.

About 93 percent of Poles declare themselves to be Catholics, according to a statistics institute.

The Lednica Youth Meeting project is now in its 25th year.
