"The total area of Poland is 312,679 square km. Poland has 280,401 km of paved roads, 2,820 km of which are motorways and expressways. Polish capital Warsaw offers wonderful examples of architecture and about a quarter of the city is filled with parks and gardens."
Poland (Polish: Polska) is a country located in central Europe.
The country is bordered by Lithuania to the north, Slovakia/Czech Republic to the south and Germany to the west. The country also borders the Russian exclave Kaliningrad Oblast to the north, Belarus and Ukraine to the east.
The country first appeared in Euro Truck Simulator, being the easternmost country featured in that game. The adaptation was known for its extensive network of roads, despite having only its capital Warszawa featured.
