The main aim of this article is to present the image of China on the pages of one of the biggest Polish popular science magazines, Naokoło Świata (Around the World), which was issued between 1924 and 1939. The published articles were devoted to customs, festivals and beliefs, and often surprised the reader, displaying a poor knowledge of China. Most of the authors had travelled to Asia, hence the articles were of a good quality, but tended to contain many oversimplifications. The reason is not only the character of the magazine, but also the stereotyped assumptions of the authors of that time.
