Poland’s history dates back to prehistory times when proto-Slavic tribes arrived on this territory and settled down. Over thousands of years Poland has defended its freedom and sovereignty from foreign aggressions on numerous occasions. Influencing and influenced by the North, South, East and West, Polish history is marked with cultural explosions, wars and scientific innovation. There was a time when Poland was the largest country in Europe but there was also a stage when it was totally erased from the world map. In this course we look at the various events in Polish history and how they shape the modern nation.
