A few facts on Poland and its language.
Polish is an Indo-European language of the West Slavic language group with the greatest number of speakers. Polish has over 42 million speakers worldwide most of whom reside in Poland. Unlike Russian, Polish uses the Latin alphabet with diacritics.
Poland has a population of over 38 million people making it the ninth largest country in Europe. Poland lost over six million citizens in World War II and emerged after the war as one of the socialist republics influenced by the USSR behind the iron curtain. Poland is now a member of the European Union since 2004, NATO and the OECD. Poland has traditionally been the home to a large amount of agriculture as well as heavy industry such as ship building, steel, coal and railways. Since joining the European Union, many Poles left Poland to work in other EU countries. However, as the Polish economy has boomed, the exodus of workers seems to be coming to a close with those coming back to Poland outnumbering those who left in 2008.
Commodities produced in Poland include: electronics, cars, buses, helicopters (PZL Świdnik), transport equipment, locomotives, planes (PZL Mielec), ships, military engineering), medicines, food, clothes, glass, pottery (Bolesławiec), chemical products and others. Well known Polish companies are LOT Polish Airlines, PKP, PKO, Polpharma, W. Kruk, Zubrowka Bison Grass Vodka and Zywiec. Famous Poles include Marie Curie, Frederyk Chopin, Hilary Koprowski, Joseph Conrad, Natassja Kinski, Roman Polanski, Steve Wozniak, Lech Wałęsa and Pope John Paul II (Karol Józef Wojtyla).
