Climate in Poland and weather forecast - best seasons for visit
On the territory of Poland, there is a constant battle between the warm and humid Atlantic air masses and the Eastern Continental ones, which provokes a drought in summer and a severe cold in winter. That is why it is difficult to call the weather in the country “stable”. A warm and sunny morning after a few hours can be replaced by a damp and rainy weather with heavy thunder-gusts. In general, winter and summer in the country are presented quite brightly but it is not the case for inter-seasonal periods. Moderate continental climate manifests itself in all its glory with the onset of December. The air immediately becomes frosty and the ground is shrouded in considerable snow. The average temperature in the country ranges from -3°C to 1°C. At night, the temperature can drop down to -6°C.
Atmosphere of Poland: religion and languages
Since the formation of the Republic, the ethnic composition of Poland has been influenced by many factors particularly the Second World War and the post-war migration of the local population. As a result, the country is absolutely homogeneous from the ethnic side of view. Consequently, only one language, Polish was recognized as the state language. Statistics show that more than thirty-seven million citizens of Poland both in everyday life and in official communication speak Polish while speakers of other ethnic languages are only about nine hundred thousand people. The most popular minority languages are English, Kashubian, Silesian, Belarusian, Russian, Czech, Hebrew and Lithuanian. The statistics also show that after the country joined the European Union, an active study of foreign languages began in the country. To date, more than half of the country is fluent in one foreign language or the other.
