  • All right, We've reached Poland.

  • Europe's How can I put this pulling?

  • Knows how to take a hit?

  • It's like eyes that all you got.

  • I'm not even breaking a sweat way.

  • There's my body art.

  • He's half polish art.

  • Do you know anything about Poland?

  • I know nothing about Poland, but I know my last name means on Friday.

  • So anyway, I have another Polish friend named Conrad who is actually also gonna be in this episode.

  • He's polish in.

  • He speaks polish.

  • Well, aren't you?

  • Can also play pulling in the skits and stuff in this episode.

  • Is that cool?

  • Yeah, I guess.

  • Anyway.

  • Hey, everybody, I'm your host.

  • Barbs!

  • Welcome to the Wolverine of Europe.

  • The polls know how to deal with calamity.

  • And if there was ever a mutant apocalypse, you would probably want one on your team.

  • In any case, let's begin how to piss off a Polish person.

  • 1010 man.

  • I just visited Poland.

  • I sure loves that Eastern European country.

  • Yeah, they don't like being called Eastern Europe, even though I mean, come on, they're kind of more on the eastern side of Okay, Okay.

  • Central, Central, Central, European Central the country is located in central Europe, in bordered by seven other countries.

  • Given mind, this little guy right here is a detached exclave of Russia called Kaliningrad, speaking of which, we already mentioned this in the Germany episode.

  • But Poland shares an island called Who's Adam or Woosnam?

  • With Germany In this lagoon, the borders follow some natural boundaries, like rivers and mountains.

  • However, most of them were agreed upon after war times.

  • The country is divided into 16 voi voters, ships or provinces.

  • The capital largest city of the country, Warsaw in the center.

  • It also holds the busiest airport, Warsaw International.

  • From there, the second largest city is Krakow, known as the medieval capital down south, and it holds the second largest airport, John Paul, the second Krakow International.

  • Rounding out for third place is the city of woe, which, which means boat nearly in the center of the whole country.

  • Unless the city of Gdansk holds the third largest airport, Gdansk International and also the busiest shipping port located on the Baltic Sea, where much of the cargo comes into the country, otherwise their entire sea access is confined to the coastline they do not own any distant islands in the Baltic due to the general flat landscape making much of the north and central parts.

  • Poland is a bustling transport hub with numerous roadways that traverse every single corner into every neighboring nation.

  • Since joining the EU, nearly two billion euros have been invested in Poland's rail lines, and high speed lines are being constructed today.

  • Polling doesn't have any autonomous areas.

  • But if we had to discuss historical and cultural regions, many people may just refer to this general area as Masseria, sometimes even historical Prussia.

  • This general area is Pomerania.

  • That's right, seems the dog, which is where it comes from.

  • And the coastal area is cashew BIA, where the cashew peons are mostly found.

  • There's Greater Poland, lesser Poland, which at the very border has Ruth India or Red Ruth Ania.

  • Parts of the South are considered Cilicia, which are inhabited by peoples that have their own distinct culture.

  • Apart from the Polish, it's all kind of confusing, and we'll talk more about it later.

  • One thing you have to understand is that historically, Poland had a lot of different types of administrative divisions and much of it was shaped by war Sometimes they had more land.

  • Other times at last and 423 years, they kind of disappeared altogether.

  • Well, actually, they almost completely disappeared.

  • I mean, Krakow was technically a free city state for about 30 years.

  • And keep in mind we mentioned this in the Lithuania episode.

  • But if you want to be incredibly technical historically the Polish Lithuanian commonwealth had some colonies way back.

  • He ha when they fought.

  • One island in the Gambia as well as Trinidad and Tobago would be good overseas investments, making them the only sites that the Polish had colonized outside of Europe.

  • Then what happened in the end, it was too hard for them to manage, and they sold them off the end.

  • So anyway, here's some places of interest, you guys.

  • The Polish geography suggested we mentioned this episode have quite a few UNESCO heritage sites.

  • A lot of them are like chapels.

  • The holy mountain of Subotica painted village of his elite, Chopin's heart, this rock city upside down house cost.

  • Yusko mount the carriage house, the world's most narrow house.

  • Tons of cool statues and monuments like these, the world's tallest pope statue.

  • Tons of World War two sites.

  • It's kind of what they're known for the most famous one, probably being the Auschwitz concentration camp.

  • Of course, there are way too many churches like these.

  • This one was where all the former king's were coronated.

  • And, of course, there's Warsaw ST John's Cathedral.

  • There's a bunch of synagogues actually survived World War two, and there's even a wooden mosque for the Tatar minority and Christian Yanni.

  • There's so many museums and galleries, here's a bunch of notable ones and too many castles, but they're very proud of having the world's largest medieval castle in Melbourne.

  • Yeah, Poland does not fall short when it comes to sites to see or things to do or nature to explore.

  • And that means we move on to the next segment.

  • The it is said that the name Poland comes from Poland.

  • He which means people living in open fields, Poland is not all flat and not all planes.

  • There's much more to it than you think.

  • Poland is generally divided into five physical regions.

  • The coast, the lake lands, the Polish plane, the Polish Coupland's and the mountain regions.

  • Much of Poland's coast along the Baltic Sea is straight until you hit the east and you get these interesting natural formations called spits.

  • We've already talked about them in the Lithuania episode, but basically spits are thin, narrow sandbanks that divide the sea from another body of water, creating saltwater lagoons, the largest one being the Bay of Park, the stitching and the Vistula Lagoon shared with Russia's Kaliningrad exclave.

  • Much of the country inland lies on the flat Polish plane, part of the Greater North European plane, a huge, open, flat segment of central Europe that extends across multiple countries.

  • Many people say that this is both the blessing and curse of Poland, because although 1/3 of the country's force did this one being the largest national park and about 1/3 is arable, making them a powerhouse contributor to Europe's agriculture sector.

  • It did kind of make it easy for outside forces to enter an invade with little or no natural obstacles, barricading the interior of the country anyway.

  • Within this plane, many rivers, like the no tech vodka and the longest river, the Vistula, meander through the fertile valleys, passing through many important cities like Warsaw.

  • In the north side, you have two massive Lake District's the Pomeranian and the larger Masur Ian, which also holds the largest lake of the country.

  • Lakshmi.

  • The further south you go, the higher the elevation gets until you hit the Poland.

  • Coupland's a little further south on the border with the Czech Republic and Slovakia, you find the two main and largest mountain chains, the suit debts and the best kids, which form the north part of the larger famous Carpathian Mountain chain.

  • Here, you can also find the tallest peak, Mount Dressy right on the border of Slovakia.

  • All right.

  • And that just about does it.

  • Now I need my triple shot of espresso break.

  • And this time, art is gonna come in to finish off the physical geography section.

  • What do you want me to say, Barbie?

  • The next thing on the teleprompter.

  • Now, as you can see, by this point, pulling has a lot more than just flat plains and lakes.

  • They even have moving sand dudes in the north and a small desert and buoyant doof, which literally translates to mistakes.

  • Yeah, Poland deserts.

  • You never think those two would go together, right?

  • Oh, and there's also a crooked forest made up of trees that bend at a 90 degree angle.

  • Many people have theories as to how it got that way.

  • Some say it's natural.

  • Some say it was a do trying to make chairs.

  • In any case, Poland is a major producer of apples six in the world, as well as being the world's largest treacle treacle.

  • What the heck is treacle and Amber?

  • Amber Exporter know Amber is either.

  • What is that petrified?

  • Theresa?

  • Actually, it is well today, though Poland's economy is now mainly driven by the service sector and industry, with main products like machinery and cars, buses and video games being their largest export anyway, pulling also has quite a few endemic animal species, like storks, Eurasian, lynx, roe deer.

  • And they have one of the largest populations of the rare European bison.

  • Which have you guys ever had?

  • A bison burger?

  • I mean, that's, like, really good.

  • Alright, don't eat those.

  • Those are endangered and bears.

  • In fact, a bear once served in the Polish army, and there's a statue dedicated to him.

  • Look it up, Good old Vojtech.

  • Anyway, time to finish up with food.

  • Some of the top Polish dishes you guys, the Polish jogger peeps jugar.

  • That's what I call them Are suggested we mentioned Include things like big ocean cabbage rolls, the Lanka pork knuckle roasted duck served with hunter.

  • That ball.

  • So many suits like these but the national dish being sour rice soup.

  • And, of course, the most popular dishes Many people have heard of Paro G kielbasa, Cubanos and crack Oh, style sausage and bagels.

  • Yes, Bagels originated from Poland from the Polish Jews, not New York.

  • Oh, and of course, you cannot talk about pulling without mentioning Baka.

  • Some say it was invented in pulling.

  • Some say the polish just make really good vodka.

  • But either way, Vaki usually takes up a huge section in most Polish grocery stores.

  • I've seen this guy back in.

  • No, you haven't.

  • That was not your whiskey.

  • And we don't talk about that here.

  • Polish people know what they like.

  • There are distinct people.

  • Speaking of which, we now move on to thank you, art.

  • Thanks.

  • Can I do like one of those special effect?

  • Outro is like, you know, Wolverine theme.

  • Can I have the clause or something like that?

  • Yeah.

  • Go for it.

  • Here.

  • Okay, Isa True.

  • If I kill you, I become you.

  • Let's find out who it does work now.

  • Some of you guys have told me in pulling There's kind of like a word that sums up the Polish mindset Zal Wat, which means something along the lines of accomplishing tasks in taking care of business.

  • Half of everybody in Europe is probably at one point at least encountered a pool there everywhere.

  • Working Polish doctors in Germany Polish contract workers in London, Polish bus drivers in Iceland work is in their blood, and it's a huge part of who they are.

  • The population is about 40 million, however, give mind to ask for wise.

  • There are about 20 million poles living abroad and they are the second largest Slavic group after Russians.

  • The country is incredibly homogeneous, with about 96% of the population claiming to be Polish, which is part of the Slavic family group.

  • This makeup is mostly due to the Nazi intervention of World War two and Soviet relocation policies of the 20th century that drastically changed the previously diverse population.

  • Country has few minority groups, however, off the minorities, the largest groups would be the sightless sea in at about 1.3% on the cashew peons at just under 1%.

  • The rest is mostly made up of other Europeans, like Ukrainians.

  • Belarusians checks non Europeans they use.

  • The Polish is what is.

  • The currency is a type C E and F plug outlets, and they drive on the right side of the road.

  • Now, of course, the main language of Poland is, of course, a Polish.

  • Lots of people say Polish is like, really hard to learn for one to have seven cases of speech and too many continents.

  • They're smashed all together at once.

  • Geography, Pavel says.
