With beautiful landscapes, including coastline along the Baltic Sea, Poland is an excellent place for tourists, especially those with an interest in world history and architecture.

For the past two years, US families have adopted 50 beautiful Polish children each year. Poland is a party to the Hague Treaty on International adoptions.
