About:

Poland, Pol. Polska, officially Republic of Poland, republic (2005 est. pop. 38,635,000), 120,725 sq mi (312,677 sq km), central Europe. It borders on Germany in the west, on the Baltic Sea and the Kaliningrad region of Russia in the north, on Lithuania, Belarus, and Ukraine in the east, and on the Czech Republic and Slovakia in the south. Warsaw is the capital and largest city.

Poland, a country the size of New Mexico, is in north-central Europe. Most of the country is a plain with no natural boundaries except the Carpathian Mountains in the south and the Oder and Neisse rivers in the west. Other major rivers, which are important to commerce, are the Vistula, Warta, and Bug.

The population of Poland is around 38 million. The World War II toll on Poland was a staggering 6 million-including 3 million Jews slaughtered in the Nazi death camps. At present, more than 98 percent of the people are Poles, with small groups of Ukrainians, Belorussians, Germans, Slovaks and Lithuanians.

Poland has a rich history, dating back to more than a thousand years ago. During this period, Poland gave birth to a unique culture and raised many people that changed the course of the world. In this part, we will present articles about the rich history of Poland, and the Polish culture as well as the important Polish people that carved their names in history with their deeds.

Poland, lying in the center of Europe, is a greatly underrated touristic destination. Cities like Warsaw and Krakow define the modern look of this young democracy of the European Union, while you can easily feel overloaded with history and culture in Wroclaw, Lublin or Oswiecim – a major host of probably the greatest tragedy mankind has ever known. You can experience the unique Polish culture, and feel closer to the great people this nation has given to our civilization.

India’s Association:

  • Given Poland’s importance in Central Europe, India could further strengthen bilateral relations and trade and economic cooperation. It could serve as a gateway for goods and services to the vast EU, CEFTA and CIS markets. With its economy growing at a rapid pace, it is already India’s largest export market in the region.
  • Poland’s attitude towards India is characterized by goodwill and recognition of India as a major power in Asia. Poland has always considered India to be an active and important player in the international arena and admires our democratic traditions and core values of non-violence, tolerance and secularism.
