Poland is a country in Central Europe, bordered by Germany to the west, the Czech Republic and Slovakia to the south, Ukraine, Belarus to the east and the Baltic Sea and Kaliningrad Oblast (a Russian exclave) and Lithuania to the north. The total area of Poland is 312,679 square kilometres, making it the 69th largest country in the world and the 9th largest in Europe. With a population of over 38.5 million people, Poland is the 34th most populous country in the world, the sixth most populous member of the European Union, and the most populous post-communist member of the European Union. Poland is a democracy, with a president as a head of state divided into 16 administrative subdivisions.

The country is characterised by considerable natural and environmental diversity. Over 75% of the area of Poland is located below 200 meters above sea level, and merely 3.1% percent above 500 meters above sea level. The share of forests in the total area of the country exceeds 30%. Poland has areas of outstanding natural value, both Europeanwide and worldwide. More than 1% of the territory is protected within 23 national parks. There are still places hardly touched by the civilization, like the wild and desolate Bieszczady Mountains with their spectacular pastures known as “poloniny”, and the inaccessible flood plains along the Biebrza River, home for many rare bird species, sometimes found nowhere else in Europe. Great conifers can be found in the Bialowieza Forest, ruled by the European bison, Europe's biggest animal. Great brown bears live in the Tatras and the Bieszczady, while white-tailed and golden eagles, Poland's biggest birds of prey, wheel the skies.

Despite the vast destruction the country experienced during World War II, Poland managed to preserve much of its cultural wealth. There are 14 heritage sites inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage and 54 Historical Monuments and many other objects of cultural heritage.

Poland's high-income economy is considered to be one of the healthiest of the post-communist countries and is one of the fastest growing within the EU, as evidenced by a constant positive rate of economic growth during the global crisis in recent years.

The contemporary Poland is a modern and friendly country, well-known for its hospitality and openness.
