Poland is a large state located in Central-Eastern Europe. Fifth most populous member of the European Union, Poland has a long and tragic history due to its unfortunate location making it a prime victim to every continent-spanning war. Most of the country’s monuments and riches were lost to WW2 in particular. That doesn’t mean it’s an “empty” state – on the contrary! The lost monuments have been meticulously rebuilt, and furthermore Poland has some of the greatest natural wonders in Europe, including and unique ecosystem of Białowieża Forest.
