Poland? Where is it?

Poland is a large country which is located in Central Europe. We border 7 countries. From the north, Poland borders with Russia (with its Kaliningrad Oblast) and Lithuania, from the east with Belarus and Ukraine, from the south with Slovakia and the Czech Republic, and from the west with Germany. Most of Poland's northern border is marked by the coast of the Baltic Sea. The administrative area of Poland is 312,696 km², which gives it the 9th place in Europe. Poland is inhabited by over 37 million people, which gives it the 5th place in the European Union. Poland belongs, among others, to the European Union, the Schengen area, NATO, the UN, the OSCE and the Council of Europe.
