Authentic Polish history began in the early 9th century when the Polians obtained hegemony over the others Slavic tribes that occupied the country. Their principal dynasty of PIAST accepted Christianity in 966. Poland, partitioned since the 18th century, was declared an independent republic on 11 November 1918, when the First World War ended. The country was ruled by a military regime from 1926 until 1939, when it was invaded by Nazi Germany and by the USSR. The invading powers partitioned Poland again. After Germany declared war on the USSR, in 1941, its forces occupied the whole of Poland until being driven out by soviet troops in 1945. After the Second World War under the Potsdam Agreement, the former German territories laying east of the rivers Oder and Neisse came under Polish sovereignty. Poland's frontier with the USSR was also shifted westward. Poland become a "people's democracy" on the Soviet model. Self-governing unions were formed under the guidance of Solidarity (Solidarnosc), the organization involved in the Gdansk strike, led by Lech Walesa. Marital law was imposed on 13 December 1981, and a military Council of National Salvation, led by Gen. Jaruzelski, was set up. In December 1989 the country became the Republic of Poland, when the National Assembly approved the change of name. The local election of May 1990 were the first full free elections for more than 50 years.

Poland's Culture
A Thousand Years in the Making

The style and personality of the Polish people have been shaped over a thousand years, resulting in an amalgamation of many heritages.
Poland's national culture was born of Latin and Byzantine influences, and influenced by various European occupations throughout the country's history. Highly artistic people, the Poles have adapted and "borrowed" freely from many cultures, contributing to the versatile character of Polish art. In the 19th and 20th centuries, the Polish people's focus on cultural development even took the place of political and economic activity.
Customs, manners, and traditional costumes reflect both eastern and western influences including rich eastern ornamental styles and Islamic influences. One of the most original and authentic branch of Polish folk art is paper cut-outs. Folk cut-outs are the most genuine example of Polish art; unique in Europe. The cut-outs were used to decorate the interiors of village huts especially for Christmas and Easter seasons. Wafer cut-outs (made with flour and water) were very popular in Polish homes at Christmas. This art is displayed in exhibitions, and illuminates the immense skills of village women who had never taken any professional training in art. These artisans learned their skills from their mothers and grandmothers.
The origins of Polish literature date back to the 14th century. In the 19th century, when Poland did not exist as an independent state, great Romantic literature flourished. Poets like Adam Mickiewicz, Juliusz Slowacki and Zygmunt Krasinski became spiritual leaders of a nation deprived of its sovereignty, prophesying its revival. In the south, Zakopane was the birthplace of the avant-garde works of Stanislaw Ignacy Witkiewicz.

The 2004 estimate was 38,626,349, yielding an average population density of 127 persons per sq km (328 per sq mi). Poland’s highest population densities are in the southern upland areas; the lowest densities are in the northwest and northeast. The average annual rate of population growth was very high in the period following World War II, but after the 1960s it declined to less than 1 percent, and in 1997 the population was estimated to be decreasing. Reasons for the decline include high unemployment and increases in the cost of child rearing. The rate of urbanization in Poland has accelerated since the end of World War II. In 2002, 63 percent of the population lived in urban areas.

Culture Territory People Environment Regions ... Economy Culture Culture in Brief Science and education Poland and the World Lifestyle Famous Poles Poland in photos CULTURE IN BRIEF The style and personality of Polish life have been shaped over
a thousand years. National culture was born of influences of the Latin and the Byzantine worlds, and from a dialogue between ethnic minorities in Poland. The Poles have always welcomed foreign artists and been eager to follow what was happening in other countries. In the 19th and 20th centuries Poles' concentration on cultural development often took the place of political and economic activity. These factors contributed to the versatile character of Polish art, with all its complex nuances.
Dialogue and the interpenetration of cultures have been major characteristics of Polish tradition for centuries. Customs, manners, clothes have reflected the influences of east and west. Traditional costumes worn by the gentry in the 16th and 17th centuries were inspired by rich eastern ornamental styles, including Islamic influences. Polish cuisine and social mores are another reflection of these various influences.
Polish towns reflect the whole spectrum of European styles. Poland's eastern frontiers marked the boundary of the influences of Western architecture on the continent. History has not been kind to Poland's architectural monuments. However, a number of ancient edifices have survived: castles, churches and palaces, sometimes unique in the regional or European context. Some of them have been laboriously restored (the Royal Castle in Cracow), or completely reconstructed having been totally ruined in the last war (the Old Town and Royal Castle in Warsaw, the Old Town in Gdansk and Wroclaw). Kazimierz on the Vistula is an example of
