The northern natural border is created by the Baltic Sea. Capital city of Poland is Warsaw, which is also the country’s largest city.

The official language is Polish, which is believed to be one of the most difficult languages in the world – mostly because of its specific pronunciation of certain letters and seven cases of each noun.

Later in 1025, the Kingdom of Poland has coronated its first king Bolesław I Chrobry.

The country had formed a Polish-Lithuanian commonwealth together with Grand Duchy of Lithuania for a long lasting period.

During 1772, 1793 and 1795, the Commonwealth territory was significantly reduced as it was annexed and partitioned among Austria, Russian Empire and Prussia.

Poland gained back its independence in 1918, by the end of the World War I, under the official name of the Second Polish Republic.
