A Country of Tourism and Culture

As a member of the European Union, the WTO, the UN, and other international organizations, Poland has fourteen UNESCO World Heritage sites, including Auschwitz-Birkenau, the historic centers of Krakow and Warsaw, the Castle of the Teutonic Order in Malbork, and the Białowieża Forest. The Polish territory is also dominated by major rivers such as the Vistula and the Oder, as well as numerous lakes, mountain ranges, and the Błędów Desert.

In the arts, Poland distinguishes itself with playwrights like Leon Schiller, Jerzy Grotowski, and Krzysztof Warlikowski. Polish music features figures such as Frédéric Chopin, Henryk Górecki, and the group Vader. Polish cinema has influenced global cinematography through directors like Roman Polański and Andrzej Żuławski. Other prominent Polish personalities who have impacted the world include Nicolaus Copernicus, Marie Curie, and Wisława Szymborska.

Beyond all the tourist and cultural attractions, the country is also a business destination. Its rapid growth has put it in eighth place in the ranking of the economies of the European Union in terms of GDP, and twenty-fifth place in the world.

With about 55 million native speakers, Polish is the official language of Poland and is spoken in several countries around the world, including the United States, Germany, Brazil, and the United Kingdom. This makes it the second most widely spoken Slavic language in the world.

The language is written with the Latin alphabet enriched with diacritics and phonologically has eight vowels and 35 consonants. To pronounce Polish correctly, it is useful to know that the emphasis is usually on the penultimate syllable of a word and that the "soft" (palatal) consonants are either marked by an acute accent or followed by an i.
