REGIONS

Poland has it all: access to the sea, a vast lake district, rolling fields, and high mountains. For those who don't know the geography of Poland well, we have divided Poland into four "Regions" - Sea, Lakes, Plains and Mountains. This "artificial" division is in keeping with the natural geographical features of their landscape. The colour map shows the location of each Region.
