About the Company

In October 2016, by decision of the Management Board of the Bauer Media Group, Phoenix Press Publishing House was merged with Bauer Publishing House. From then on, operating under the name of Wydawnictwo Bauer Sp. z o.o. Sp.K., continues to work on the development of titles that were so far in the Phoenix Press portfolio and is launching new projects, including opening up other channels of communication with consumers and consistently providing high quality content.

 

Thanks to a committed and competent team of staff since 1995, we continually publish magazines that meet the needs of millions of Poles seeking entertainment, information, reliable, proven advice, and emotional stories. The latter have been the basis of the company’s dynamic growth since its inception.

 

We have become the creators of the “real life stories” magazine segment with true stories, maintaining an unquestioned leader position.

 

The idea of creating publications focused on the needs of readers – pending a good, engaging content at a reasonable price – resulted in a widening the portfolio with entertainment titles which include the crossword puzzles. Nearly 20 years of experience in the creation of content with the scope of intellectual entertainment has taken an effect, not only in the form of publications appreciated in Poland, but also successfully licensed in other countries and the production of such materials for English-speaking countries.

 

Since 2003 we have also been publishing titles about cooking, hobby and advisory subjects. Innovations included the traditional press (the introduction of social-community titles created with materials from the readers), but were also associated with the opening to the New Media, including electronic editions. Since 2014 we are the owner of the largest culinary website in Poland Durszlak.pl – aggregator of recipes from close to 6,500 blogs on cooking, which is currently the center of the culinary blogosphere. On the top positions in their respective segments moved up the magazines created for readers looking for in-depth information – about health and gardening.
