Poland – interesting facts

A political figure – Lech Wałęsa was born in German occupied Poland and become the second president of Poland from December 1990-1995. He was an electrician and a trade union activist who co-founded Solidarity, the trade union movement. His family was watched by the Polish Secret Police which often led to his arrest and interrogation. The solidarity movement resulted in parliamentary elections in 1989 and later Lech Wałęsa presided over post communist Poland.

The word “zloty” means gold although there is no gold in any of the Polish current legal tender coins.
