Poland is situated in the eastern part of Central Europe. It shares land borders with Germany, Slovakia, the Czech Republic, Ukraine, Belarus, Lithuania and Russia (Kaliningrad District). The northern border, as long as 440 kilometres, is the Baltic Sea coast line.

Poland is subdivided into sixteen administrative regions known as voivodeships. If compared to other European countries, Poland is homogenous as regards nationality. It is estimated that no more than 3% of total population is made up of national minorities.

Climate - the average annual temperature in Poland ranges from 5-7°C in the hilly Pomeranian and Masurian lake districts and in the uplands to 8-10°C. Winter is usually cold and snowy, summer brings warm days, when the temperature exceeds 25°C, spring and early autumn is very pleasant with moderate temperatures and lovely colours- so called ‘Gold Polish Autumn’.
