Is Poland mostly plains?

I looked at a few pictures of various places including the area I was born in and see grass, grass, grass, and more grass. Urban areas aside, do these kinds of places compose most Poland?

Plains are good. They make it easier to travel to those "interesting" places :)
Plenty of mountains and hills in Poland.

Yes.. I do not by any means see plains as a terrible thing.... except during the night time.. when the stars are bared (personal phobia).. I sometimes think back to when I lived amongst the peasants and ventured alone cross these plains and small forests and wish for a chance to experience them again.. You don't know how precious a moment is til it's long past... ow

Definitely not any peasant, not many were all too good, but the things pleasant; The memory of venture through plains and wood.

Peasants or "pheasants"? Here in my 'mountain' village, there are plenty of pheasants in my forests, but no peasants. Peasants essentially existed in Europe during the early 1900's and prior to that.

I'm talking about the peasants, country side dwelling people, living and working in the village, not about any of the surrounding fauna...

Wouldn't the term 'farmer' be more appropriate these days? :-) "Peasant" can be a bit of an insult. The village I live in is full of farmers. The advantage? Fresh, tasty, healthy produce, and clean air.

The preceding photograph is that of a 'farmer'. :-) This is a typical sight in the village I reside in. It is common for farmers to utilize horses instead of tractors. It's ecological as well!

But not too efficient. :(:(

Here in my 'mountain' village,

Is Tarnow a mountain village? Looking at the map, it seems to be a bit north to be considered one.

I live in the Tarnów 'region', about 40 km south of the city itself, in a village located in the Carpathian foothills, 310 meters above sea level, not far from the Dunajec River valley. Tarnów is a mid-sized 'city' (not a village) with a population of about 125,000.

Yes, another farmer! :-) Milk without the chemical additives. Not efficient, but clean.

I was always under the impression that Poland (Polska) was named for the lay of the land. POLE, FIELDS.

What is so derogatory about the word PEASANT? My father was a peasant from Galicia. He was never ashamed when he told me stories about farm life in the early 1900..They came to America because they never had enough of food to feed the family.. They were Jedziemy dla chleba immigrants

Near to Gorlice? My ancestry on my grandfather's side is just east of there - Wola Cieklinska. Are you near to that village?
