Poland General: 181 reviews and 147 photos
Favorite thing: The name of Poland comes from the name of the Polanie tribe. In IX - X century there existed a few pre-state territorial organizations. Polanie, who settled near Gniezno, managed to unite most tribes dwelling in the area and established the state reigned by the Piast dynasty. The first Piast prince to be mentioned by contemporary historical sources, Mieszko I was baptized in 966, thus starting the process of Poland's Christianization and placing the Polish state in the political system of Central Europe.
White Eagle has been a symbol of Poland since 1295.
