Moving to Poland – About the Country
Poland is a large and varied country in the heart of Europe, with a long and eventful history. It has gone through a wave of significant political, social and economic changes since late 80’s. The results of these changes are plainly visible today, particularly in the cities. However, there are also many aspects of Poland and Polish life that have remained unchanged for centuries.
In today’s Poland you will find a great diversity of scenery – busy cities, luxury hotels and modern international airports are contrasted by ancient castles, horse-drawn plows and storks nesting on chimney tops. The country has an abundance of natural beauty, including high mountain ranges, large forests and a long coastline. Nearly one third of Poland is covered by forest, and the huge area of farmland makes up a half of its landmass.
Poland was the flash point in 20th century on two occasions. Firstly, Germany’s invasion of Poland that started WWII, and later on a political and social movements in Poland had started the collapse of communism in Eastern Europe.
In the late 19th and early 20th century, Poland was an industrial powerhouse in Europe. Today, in the world of business and commerce, Poland is shifting away from it’s heavily industrialised past and is modernising many areas of its economy.
Poland has a cool, continental climate, and temperature varies significantly from one area to another. Two climatic patterns meet over Poland – humid Atlantic air moves from the west, and dry air comes from Eurasia in the east. As a result, weather in western parts of Poland tends to be wetter and milder weather than in east.
Apart from the usual 4 seasons, Poland has two distinct extra ones – an “early spring” and an “early winter”. Also significant is the fact that seasons do not arrive at the same time in different areas of Poland.
The average annual temperature in northern parts is 5 – 7 degrees Celsius, in southern parts 8 -10 degrees, while in high mountains the average drops to 0 degrees. The hottest month is July with an average of 16 – 19 degrees, and it rarely goes higher than 25 degrees. The lowest recorded temperature was -41degrees C in 1940.
