The total area of Poland is 312,679 square kilometres (120,726 sq mi),making it the 71st largest country in the world and the 9th largest in Europe.

Poland is a unitary state divided into 16 administrative subdivisions.
Poznan is a city on the Warta river in west-central Poland, in the region called Wielkopolska (Greater Poland). It is best known for its renaissance old town, destroyed during World War II and then rebuilt, and Ostrów Tumski cathedral. After the second partition of Poland Poznan was administrated by Prussia, and then, with the unification of Germany after the Franco- Prussian War of 1871, the province of Posen became part of the German Empire. Furthermore, the city of Posen was officially named an imperial residence city, leading to the construction of the Imperial Castle, the Imperial District, the Opera House, new city walls, railway station and many other sites which make a big part of its landmarks to this day. Today, Poznan is an important cultural and business centre and one of Poland’s most populous regions with many regional customs such as Jarmark , traditional Saint Martin’s croissants and a local dialect.
Lublin – Lublin is the ninth largest city in Poland and the second largest city of Lesser Poland. It is the capital of Lublin Voivodeship (province) with a population of 349,103 (March 2011). Lublin is the largest Polish city east of the Vistula River. Lublin is approximately 170 kilometres (106 miles) southeast of the capital, Warsaw.
Lublin is not only the largest city in eastern Poland, but also serves as an important regional cultural capital. Since accession of Poland into the EU, Lublin has been called the “Gate to the East”. Since then, many important international events have taken place here, involving Ukrainian, Lithuanian, Russian and Belarusian artists, researchers and politicians. The frescos at the Holy Trinity Chapel in Lublin are a mixture of Catholic motifs with eastern Russian- Byzantine styles, reinforcing how the city connects the West with the East. Lin’s always concern the safety is the first priority for choose study medicine in overseas countries. That’s why we don’t consider to send our students to the capital city or modern city for study medicine, as study medicine is very tough major, students need to spend more than 2- 3 times of efforts than general majors. Medical students need quite environment to focus on the books all the time. So we choose Poznan city and Lublin city. These 2 cities are located at the east and the west of Poland, and the main population here is students. Every 5 people that past you, there are 4 of them are students. Here are the cities of history, culture ,education. Security and peaceful . That is the reason that both of these 2 cities has over 1000 international medicine students from all over the world. Local people here are friendly and kindness to all the Asian students.
