Poland as a country built in the ninth century.
from 1386 Poland was in union with Lithuania. (1795)
From 1795 to 1918, Poland was taken over by Germany, Russia and Austria.
September 1, 1939 my country was attacked by Germany and started World War II. September 17 was also attacked Poland by Russia, the attack was the result of a secret agreement between Russia and Nazi Niemcami.W result of World War II and during the war killed about 16% of Polish citizens, many cities were destroyed, including almost completely Warsaw. After the war, Poland was charged with (like Bulgaria) Soviet influence. There was a falsification of the elections and the Communists came to power.
And like Bulgaria in 1989 we are a democratic country.
From March 12, 1999 we are in NATO.
And on April 16, 2003 in the European Union.
