This is Poland!

Poland is a country in europe, known for being a part of both world wars. Many people come to visit the old concentration camps, like Auschwitz. Also, Poland is a place for playing soccer and, if you go there in winter, it is perfect for skiing. If you're wondering what to eat there, then you should go with bread and cheese, which is popular in Poland and most other European countries as well. The holidays in Poland include children's day on June 1st, states day (our labor day) on May 1st, and st. Andrews day on November 30th.
