Today, exactly 100 years ago Poland reappeared on the map. After 123 years of partitions (Prussia, Russia, Austria-Hungary) our ancestors made our country independent again. Thank you. If it had not been for you, we would have been speaking German and Russian now. Well, being born in Eastern Poland, i would master Russian for sure.
Population – 35th in the world
Area – 69th in the world

Not so bad! Although we used to be bigger (see the map below). 😀
Visit Poland. Polish is fun! And remember: w Szczebrzeszynie chrząszcz brzmi w trzcinie.

The city with biggest Polish population? Chicago, i think 🙂
