About Poland

Poland is a Central European country with a population of 38.5 million people. Located between the Baltic Sea in the north and the Tatra Mountains in the south, the country surprises visitors with its variety of landscapes and scenery.

The longest river, the Vistula, flows across the country, connecting the ancient city of Cracow, Warsaw – the capital – and the port town of Gdańsk. The Masurian Lakeland attracts yachting lovers and those who would like to discover the primeval forest where rare species of animals and old trees whisper the tale of days gone by.

With eleven centuries of history behind it, Poland has a very rich cultural heritage which goes back to the days when the amber route ran through its lands. Copernicus’ medieval city of Toruń, the Salt Mine in Wieliczka and Gdańsk shipyard only begin the long list of Polish highlights.
