10 + Interesting Facts About Poland

Beauty it comes to us when we least expect it although it is all around us And when it’s there it usually is followed by uncertainty Excitement confusion and hope and in the world there are many places that spark these moments within our emotions making us bigger and better people Enjoying the moments we have with one another or with the vast scenery around us and here on FTD facts We are talking about one of the most beautiful countries in the entire world, and that is the country of poland. Hey Everybody what’s going on Dave waffle here, and today is pretty sweet because you know last couple of weeks We’ve been talking about you know places like Sweden And I felt like today is a day we got to talk about Poland because it seems to be a very cool place And I know a few people from poland who are absolutely amazing now before I get in this video I want to know from all you guys out there in the real world I want to know. What do you guys? Cherish most be sure to let me know What is the most important thing to you? put it down there so I can read it also for those who have just joined us here for the first time this is a Channel we talk about people places and things from all around the world and with that we want recommendations from you guys And with that in mind a lot of you guys such as abanda stat huge possess Hala, Lua Mercy forgave Jonathan Jesus and many more of you guys wanted us to talk about poland and it is a really highly requested video So let’s get talking about poland guys. I’m excited to learn about it, sweden was cool all the other countries We’ve talked about but here is poland time poland is the Eastern European country that sits right beside the baltic sea and as of 2010 it is a country that has over 38 million people stretched out over a landscape of 312 thousand six hundred and Seventy-nine square kilometers this may the country have 123 people per Square kilometer now the one thing that I didn’t know about poland is that apparently if you call somebody a Polack it’s a really offensive term I didn’t really know that I always thought it was kind of like just slang for being like yeah, you’re a polish person But apparently it is a very derogative and negative offensive term towards Polish people but if you want a short term for a polish person You either call them polish or a pole Now even though some polish people may take offense to this word the country is made up of great people who strive for a better Future and poland itself as a country that has a really extensive history Just like most of the countries that we do talk about but with this history It’s got great moments and also really sad moments for example the people of poland are really excited to celebrate their independence Now this happened on November 11th 1918 when they declared themselves their own Republic from Russia and throughout the second World war this day of independence was banned in 1939 because of German influence within the country and even though the Germans got their butt kicked in World war two Their independence wasn’t celebrated again until 1989 When the communist government was kicked out which is kind of fascinating to me because I do think that Poland was going to be communist after the war and speaking of history We’ll dive more into that into a future episode but for now Let’s just talk about some really cool facts about the country itself for example poland has some many interesting features about the country many of you may picture poland and see it as a Lowlands or planes and not very mountainous But in fact that’s absolutely incorrect because while poland down to the southern regions has a lot of mountains these other Carpathian and sudutt mountain ranges and the two highest are the tatra mountains and the tallest of the Tatras mountains that’s in Poland is the Ricey Mountain coming in at two thousand five hundred and three meters tall or eight thousand two hundred and twelve feet it is a great Place to climb and hike except for it is closed from November 1st to June 15th Which makes sense because the winter seasons now let’s step away from Nature for just a sec and let’s talk about Polish culture First of all the capital of Poland is Warsaw and out of all the cities It is the largest city with a population of 1.8 million people it was founded in 1200 ad with the st.. John’s our Cathedral church in Warsaw being one of the oldest cathedrals in the city And it is so old that it is considered a un seo site and speaking of City ages dance has over four hundred and sixty thousand people and it is one of if not the oldest major City within poland being founded in 97 Ad by Moscow first of Poland who is the Ruler of the poles in 1960 and when we think of poland we might think of Polish beer or vodka or just Having drinks in poland for a good time and not saying that the poles are a bunch of drunks But like us canadians over here. We do enjoy a good bevy, but as for alcohol They estimate that a polish person drinks 92 liters of beer a year and further drinking laws you have to be over 18 years old to legally purchase alcohol But keep in mind That’s just purchased because I couldn’t find anything that stated whether or not it was legal for people under the age of 18 to drink alcohol But on top of that if you drank in the streets of poland or the parts of poland it would be considered illegal Considering we’re on the topic of drinking We might as well talk about smoking because smoking is banned in indoor restaurants workplaces indoor public places And of course you have to be 18 years old to do that as well and the one thing that’s smoking and drinking have in Common is that they are related to the healthcare system The health care system in Poland is free for everyone and is provided by the national health fund However if you want free health care you have to be insured, and that’s usually done by an employer now There are also private health care systems where citizens have to pay full amounts but as their constitution it states that everyone is entitled to health care and in 2013 a study found out that 61% of Citizens have used private health care as well as 91% of pregnant woman now Let’s jump back to a little more culture because one thing that’s fascinating about poland is that it has 14 un Seo or unesco Zones? excluding the entire town of Warsaw which is an entire site the country has a range from cities to structures to churches to Forests and these places remind us of the great amazing story of the country But unfortunately one of these places has a story of darkness and regret This is because one of the unSc Ozone’s within poland is the auspice concentration camp now. I’m not gonna Lie guys I had totally forgotten that osh. Whit’s was in poland I always thought it was in Germany But I guess I was wrong during the second world war there were three major concentration camps osh wits 1 2 & 3 as well They had 45 other satellite camps around the area and this was Germany’s final solution to the juke uestion which resulted in the extermination of Millions of Jewish people as a matter of fact these concentration camps were pretty much a prison for 1.3 million jews and throughout the entire genocide out of the second world war these particular concentration camps contributed to the deaths of 1.1 million Jewish people and they believed that ash woods was responsible for killing 1 out of 6 jews that were murdered throughout the entire Holocaust but however the soviets managed to find osh Whit’s and freed the people on January 7th 1945 making it international holocaust remembrance day And you may wonder why is this place a unSc? Ozone if it’s such a very dark spot in our history one that we would probably rather forget well in 1947 Poland Found at the Auschwitz Birkenau State Museum and by 1979 the Camp was inscribed Because although there may have been terrible moments in history it reminds us to move forward and never return to these terrible times But today poland stands as a very interesting country as they contribute to peace keeping missions joining Nato on March 12th of 1999 they’ve also joined in relief operations in Iraq and even operation enduring freedom in Afghanistan And throughout the years poland has been moving forward to recognize individual thought and progress as in 1989 it held its first free elections in over 40 years thus bringing in a non communist government as well as one thing That’s really interesting about poland is they have 17 nobel prize winners their first one was in 1903 Which Maria Curie one for physics That she even won a second time in 1911 for chemistry and out of all these 17 Nobel prizes of four of them are for peace one thing that’s really interesting about the polish is that they have 32 letters in their Alphabet Although the alphabet is based off of a latin alphabet They have multiple accents and some letters that look like English ones But actually sound very different for example w sounds more like a V have you ever heard of k g hm Well, probably not if you’re from another country But one thing that’s interesting about this polish company is it is a copper and silver production company that employs 34,000 people around the world and although it is owned by 32% of the government it ranks as 10th in the world when it comes to providing copper for the entire planet Either way poland remains a cool and interesting country to visit there may be a lot of places to go But let’s not forget their food which they’re famous for pastries and Pierogies but there’s also many historical buildings and Amazing places to get in touch with nature such as the broca’s zoo it is also a place that is home to over 250 castles, that’s a lot and because of these amazing places in 2013 they had over 15 million visitors come into the country and as of today poland is the 17th most visited Country in the entire World so there you have it that is a brief look at poland most likely we’ll get into a part to Diving into more history and food and culture anyways My name is Dave Wawa, and it has been a pleasure once again to talk about a new country But before you guys go I want you guys to leave a recommendation down there in the comments section for a future fTD facts video and speaking of future fTD facts videos you guys should head on over to FTD daily comm Sign up for our mailing list the reason we’re doing this is because at the first of every single month we send out our production schedule and this is all so you guys know what we’re doing and if you guys want to send us any cool photos of Places that we’re going to talk about or if you have a photo of you in that country or a place that we’re going to Talk about or you have just some cool facts that you want to send us and get a shout out you can do that So be sure to head there all the links for everything is in the description Box below but Poland what a beautiful country filled with beautiful people it is a country that has a lot of history and that has been caught in The middle of some dark places in the world’s past however the people of poland Remains strong to be the best and greatest at what they do This is the culture and country and people of poland who have given a lot to the world From its thoughts that have earned Nobel prizes to its great food But most importantly it is a country that reminds us that beauty is always out there What?

  1. When you talked about castles on screen was Palace in Moszna, to be honest it isn't technically a castle because it was build only for people who wanted to live there, sometimes people call it "castle" because its so big, and also drinking alkohol in Poland is legal after 18

  2. Drodzy Polacy i redacy, takie filmyogladajcie. Nie dajmy sobie wiecej wmowic ze jestesmy gorsi czy mniej warci!!!!! Czym wiecej swiata I ludzi poznalam tym bardziej kocham nasza historie I kulture. Kochajmy nasz piekny kraj nad Wisla I szerzmy ta milosc in my nacja!

  3. Poland September 1, 1939 he was attacked by the Germans and not any influence. It was the attack of the German army on Poska.

  4. In Auschwitz, they were murdered: Poles, Gypsies, Soviets and Jews from all over Europe. Poland lost about 20% of the total population of the country in the war against the Germans.

  5. Wow I didn't knew that my country is so liked❤️😊 btw Wawa is how we sometimes call Warsaw😂

  6. I am from Poland, and when I see all the comments from "Love Poland" from many other countries, it's warm for me and I'm moved. Being in their country, people are fascinated by other countries, and often forget about their homeland. About her beauty, greatness. I am glad that Poland received such a positive opinion in this video and in the comments. Thank you all, THANKS FROM POLAND🇵🇱

  7. Xd obcokrajowcy nie wiedzą jak chujowa jest polska i myślą że to kraj który warto odwiedzić 🤣🤣🤣

  8. It is so confusing to me, Since I am Polish, I am actually 2nd and 3rd generation here since my grandmother made it out in time in 1938 before the war in 1939, We always celebrated the traditional Polish way, When I tell other's my grand- mother is from mid southern Poland, I am Polish, When I tell them my grandfather's family is from the north , they tell me I am a Russian, I have studied the history of Poland and found every-one wanted a piece of Poland, My ancestry test show's Poland, Russia, Baltic states, Czech and Slovakia. and a tad of Swedish since they also invaded Poland to. I will say" I believe we are some of the strongest people on earth and kindest. I am in contact with relatives who endured the world war 2 and I hear the stories. Most people do not even realize during this war we had it coming from the East and West, If you were on a border land, chances you were exiled to Siberia, as one of my relatives, Or Kazakhstan , Not real desirable at the time, Most were given refuge in Iran, Mexico, India, and several other countries. You can go to the Kressy Siberia Viritual Museum website and see more. The Poles recently have taken great pride as to wanting to bring their own people home, and they saved to bring some of the exiled home, This has happened within the past 5- years or so. They have the attitude before we take refugees, We will bring our own back. I am proud to be Polish and still cook the traditional way and try to pass as much down to my family.

  9. Please dont be quoting Tusk. He is an idiot and ANTI-PATRIOT of Poland that gave away millions of money from our country to germany…

  10. My sister and step dad are polish and I always tried to learn it but I gave up and now I’m here 😂

  11. Please don't say that Poland is an Eastern European country, it isn't! Romania, Hungary, Lithuania, Estonia, Latvia and Moldova are, but Poland is in Central Europe. Say that in Poland will probably get you beaten up! And yes, I have been to Poland many, many times!

  12. 2:05 not offencive I'm Polish some people might take it offencive but most don't

    (sorry if I made any spelling Mistakes)

  13. Just found out I am of Polish heritage. This was a great brief introduction to a country rich in history and culture.
    Poland suffered greatly because it's kind people embraced the Jews as friends and neighbors and the Nazis punished them for that. I cant wait to visit there. I'd love to see you do another video on Poland say "10 best things to do in Poland!" Or " 10 best cities to visit in Poland."

  14. Thank u. I'm Polish but know nothing about Poland. My grandparents migrated to America, but never talk about Poland. So I'm learning by watching videos.

  15. Kurwa, Polska nie jest krajem wschodnioeuropejskim! Znajduje się w Europie Środkowej! Poland is not an eastern european country! Central! Central! Central european!

  16. Japan rescued 765 Polish orphans in Siberia in 1920, 1921 and 1922.Polish orphans lost their family in Siberia and were hungry without food. Poland asked different countries to save Polish orphans. But every country refused to save the orphans.Finally, Poland asked Japan to rescue the orphans.Japan soon decided to save the Polish orphans. Japan found and rescued the orphans who were crawling in Siberia.We Japanese did our best to rescue Polish orphans. Japan sent a total of 765 Polish orphans to Japan.The orphans were weak. And the orphans were ill.Japan gave orphans a warm meal. And Japan treated the disease of orphans. The disease of all orphans has been cured. The orphans have recovered.Many donations were collected for orphans from all over Japan. Toys were also donated.The orphans treat Japanese who take care of them like a mother.Japanese also loved the orphans as their own children. The Empress of that time also loved the orphans as their own children. Polish orphans had a good time every day.The diet of the orphans was nutritious and gave a delicious meal.On the day of parting, the orphans cried crying that they did not want to leave Japan.The Japanese also shed tears at the farewell with the orphans. Polish orphans sang the Japanese national anthem "kimigayo" and the Polish national anthem on the ship. All 765 Polish orphans returned safely to Poland. Japan loves Poland.If something happens to Polish children, Japan will help again.Japan handed out the Virgin Mary prayer card to all orphans. Polish orphans who always had it survived the war and lived until they were over 80 years old.And during the Second World War, the Japanese “chiune sugihara” saved more than 6,000 Jews.

  17. One thing you forgot: every woman in Poland is beautiful. I don't know how they do it, but it's a fact … every single one…

  18. The polish are soooooo ugly and their people are wierdos… specially the men… socially awkward motherfuckers… The women are try hards who are beat in looks by most other European countries. Like the Latin European women. Spanish and Portuguese. And the German women or nordic women like the finish or swedish… goddamn the polish look wierd.

  19. Sorry., but you rattled off more statistics than anything…numbers don't really say much at all about the culture (?) Sort-of disappointed.

  20. Not one mention of the fact that it is Christianity that keeps Poland alive and that's why we can't be exterminated; we are under the protection of our Heavenly Father, that's why He puts us through fire, because He refines us like silver to keep the faith.

  21. I've been to Canada once for two weeks and I loved when I had to explain where Poland was. That was small town of Durham and all the hustle I caused asking for international stamps to post cards. God bless Canada. Oh yeah Tusk is traitor so please don't quote him.
