These mountains are the highest mountain range in the Carpatians in the South. The total surface if Poland is 312679 sq metres, which places our country on the 70th place in the world and on the 9th place in Europe. Poland’s population consists of 38,5 million people (in 2014), which gives us the 34th place in the world and the 6th place in the European Union.
In the west Poland borders on Germany, in the south on the Czech Republic and Slovakia, in the east on Ukraine and Belarus, in the north-east on Lithuania and in the north on Russia (the administration zone called the Kaliningrad District).
