Over time, Poland has had many capital cities. Its history is engaging and an interesting one to follow. A neighbour to seven other countries, Poland has managed to keep its charm as iconic as it has even been and remains one of the most significant places in Europe.
The name of the country comes from the Polanie tribe, which initially inhabited the lands of western Poland. The direct translation of the Polanie name means ‘people living in open fields’, which seems to fit the country as one third of it consists of forests. The white-tailed eagle is the country’s national symbol and there is a total of 23 National Parks on the territory of the country.
