The Lemko Union was founded in 1989. Member of FUEN since 1996.

Some highlights of the activities of the Lemko Union of the past years are:
  • Annual Lemkiska Vatra, a social and educational meeting of eastern and western frontier cultures, held under the motto "through the tradition to the future"
  • Teching the native tongue
  • Publishing of the quarterly magazine "Vatra", poetry, leaflets, postcards
