The Polish arrived in Uruguay at the end of the 19th century. The most recent figure is from the 2011 Uruguayan census, which revealed 497 people who declared Poland as their country of birth. Other sources claim around 5,000 Poles in Uruguay.
Polish Uruguayans have two important institutions: the Polish Society Marshal Joseph Pilsudsky (Spanish: Sociedad Polonesa Mariscal José Pilsudski), established in 1915, and the Uruguayan Polish Union (Spanish: Unión Polono Uruguaya), established in 1935, both associated with USOPAL.
