Favorite things about Poland (Part 1)

September 30, 2021
I thought to switch things a little and write few things that really fascinate me about my home country of Poland. Poland has a long, interesting, yet turbulent history from invasions to communism. I don’t want to talk too much about politics in these types of articles, because I want to focus on the beauty of each country I am interested with.

And since Poland is where I was born, I am discovering unique things about my roots. Whether it was in school or through other people.

1.) History with Colonial America- Poland and America had diplomatic and economic relations since day one. Poland has a very significant history in America dating back to 1700’s. The biggest impact Poland made was during Revolutionary War for independence. Tadulusz Kosciuszko and Kazimierz Pulaski are praised heroes in Poland and America. In recent years Poland helped America with war on terror. Poland and America have very similar constitutions

2.) Kindness and hospitality- Poland is very kind to other people. Don’t let our coldness detour you, once you will get to know us, we can be friendly and spontaneous in gatherings, or at least the older generation. Younger individuals are a little more Yet we keep it to ourselves. Poland had been very welcoming to migrants, such as Tatars in which they had to escape religious procession.

3.) Hard work and dedication- Polish people know how to work hard. Many Polish people are driven to provide for themselves. During communism, with very low wages and limited work, everyone somehow pushed through these hard times. People who weren’t satisfied with finding work they moved abroad and adapted new life style keeping the mind set of hard work.

4.) Strong will- Poland is a very strong willed country. Oppression and bullying is not what we particularly liked but cherish times in what we endured to overcome these times. All throughout history Poland many neighbors that weren’t too kind. WWII and communism were very dark chapters. But no matter what the world threw at us we over came.

5.) Education- Poland has is on the same level of education as America, but we have quite many names in science and mathematics that everyone is very familiar with, Mikolaj Kopernik, (or by Nicholas Copernicus) who was famous astronomer who discovered that the earth spins around the sun. And Maria Sklodowska-Curie who discovered radioactive elements. Whether it is math, history and languages foreign languages.

Poland has a great history and people. Poland not only had dark times in history, but we influenced many people with our ethics and values. I will write few more interesting things about Poland in later articles.
