I know Stalin murderered over 15,000 Polacks in the Katyn Forest and blamed it on Hilter.

Very few, I'm afraid Emotion: sad ... Let me see, its a neighbouring country of Germany, and it was invaded during WWII. It is also the country where the Pope was born.
Yes, I know... I'm an ignorant.

You are right about the everything you said. Poland was the first country invaded during WWII and Pope John Paul II is from Poland.

Polska!! My grandfather was Polish, he was originally from Katowice, close to Cracow in Southern Poland...I visited it past May and I thought it was wonderful! The food is just delicious! Kabanos, Golabki, etc...All I know about Poland is about the Pope, Marie Curie, Copernicus, Chopin, that Poland was a very important nation in the past centuries...and that some Irena...I don't know her surname won 3 gold medals in athletics...
Warsaw hasn't so many old districts as Cracow, but they both are beautiful...I also know about the Black Virgin from Chechtochowa, they say she's very miraculous...
Poland Rules!!
Czesc!

Did you visit the salt mines with the chapel and statues built out of the salt rock. I read about it in a book for learning English and it looks quite impressive. I think it's near Kracow if I remember correctly.

Well, actually I didn't visit any mine, I was going to go under the ground into a coal mine, but we didn't, it was too full and it got late for us, and I thank for that, I was pretty scared of going down...Emotion: stick out tongue For what I saw is that Poland is a very religious country, and I think that it's good, they have loads of faith to the Black Virgin of Chechstochowa, where the Church is, I'm not sure who of those, Germanies or Swedes couldn't go further of it, so they call Her Mother and Queen of Poland. Their language is very complicated to learn I guess...It also has loads of vegetation...

It's the Salt Mine in Wieliczka, east of Cracow. If you'll ever be in the south or south-east part of Poland, try to visit this wonderful place - I swear, it's definitely worth it! Emotion: wink
