A snapshot of


The country Being at the crossroads between the Slavonic and Latin cultures, Poland will enchant art lovers who will be captivated by the wealth of its culture, its historic towns and its religious heritage; its cathedrals and churches with their art treasures. Nature lovers will find nature intact across a widely varying regional spectrum: from the sandy and amber covered beaches of the Baltic Sea in the north, through the great lakes of Mazuria in the north-west to the rocky peaks of the Tatras and the mountainous chain of luxuriously forested peaks. Area and Borders Total area: 312 683 km2 (690 km from east to west and 650 km from north to south). The Baltic coastline extends for 524 km. It’s seven neighbouring countries are: Germany, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Ukraine, Belarus, Lithuania and Russia. Geography The northern regions of the country, Pomerania and Mazuria, have a relief of low hills, the major feature being the large number of lakes and forests. A vast plain lies across the whole country from east to west through the centre, in the regions of Podlasia, Mazovia Greater Poland. It is here that the majority of the country’s fertile land is to be found. In the south Silesia, Lesser Poland and the Carpathians have a more mountainous relief with several summits over 1000 m. In the southern tip of the country, the Tatras are the only alpine type relief with high mountains (highest point 2499 m.) Climate: both oceanic and continental thanks to its northern coastline and high mountains in the south. Autumn is dry and sunny, winter severe and snowy, spring cool and damp and summer is hot and dry. Population: 39 million Language: polish—whose pronunciation and grammar are both difficult. English and German are spoken in large towns. Religion: 98% Roman Catholics. Poles are extremely devout. The rest are split between Protestant and Orthodox.
