With a special focus on the western provinces of Lower Silesia, Lubuskie, Wielkopolska (Greater Poland) and Western Pomerania. We also have sections on Communist Poland (PRL) and the Major Cities in Poland
The Poland Poland website also combines photographs taken in different locations in Poland with practical no-nonsense advice and information on Polish culture and traditions. These subjects include: dining out in Poland; education in Poland; Polish railways; and Christmas in Poland; shopping in outdoor markets; art; nightclubs; and Polish jokes. In this way we hope not only to show the physical side of Poland, but also the cultural aspects of life in Poland. We also have sections for people looking for friends with an interest in Polish and/or Poland; and for expats in Poland, where visitors can find information on things like living and working and buying property in Poland. There are hundreds of pages and because of the hand-made nature of the website and the length of time it has been online, the linking system is a little chaotic, so if you can't find what you are looking for use the search facility. If you still can't find the information you are looking for contact us and will try and answer your question.

These parts of present-day Poland were - prior to the border changes agreed at the end of the first and second world wars - part of Prussia, Germany. These German states were known as Pomerania (Pommern), East Brandenburg, Posen, Grenzmark, Neumark, West Prussia and Lower Silesia; and are now the Polish provinces (vovoidships) of: Kujawsko Pomorskie, Lubuskie, Wielkopolskie, Dolnoslaskie, Pomorskie and Zachodniopomorskie.
