STUDY IN POLAND :
Many historians trace the establishment of a Polish state to 966, when Mieszko I, ruler of a territory roughly coextensive with that of present-day Poland, converted to Christianity. The Kingdom of Poland was founded in 1025, and in 1569 it cemented a longstanding political association with the Grand Duchy of Lithuania by signing the Union of Lublin, forming the Polish–Lithuanian Commonwealth.
Poland has 70 mountains over 2,000 metres (6,600 feet) in elevation, all in the Tatras. The Polish Tatras, which consist of the High Tatras and the Western Tatras, is the highest mountain group of Poland and of the entire Carpathian range. In the High Tatras lies Poland’s highest point, the north-western summit of Rysy, 2,499 metres (8,199 ft) in elevation. At its foot lies the mountain lakes of Czarny Staw pod Rysami (Black Lake below Mount Rysy), and Morskie Oko (the Marine Eye). There are 500 university-level institutions for the pursuit of higher education in Poland, There are 18 fully accredited .
Traditional universities in Poland. There are twenty technical universities, nine independent medical universities, five universities for the study of economics, nine agricultural academies, three pedagogical universities, a theological academy and three maritime service universities. There are a number of higher educational institutions dedicated to the teaching of the arts. Amongst these are the seven higher state academies of music.

DEMOGRAPHIC SITUATION OF POLAND :
In Poland, 38.2 million people inhabit an area of 312 685 square kilometres. The average density of population is 122 persons per square kilometre. The low birth rate in the 1990s and a high level of emigration, noted especially since 2004 (mostly among young people), will soon lead to increasing difficulties in the demographic development, on the labour market and in the social security system. According to the long-range population projections for up to 2035, the population of Poland will decrease steadily and the rate of this decrease will grow over time. The Polish society will also experience the process of ageing and consequently the proportion of post-working-age population will increase.
