5 Poland lies in the central part of the European continent, the geometrical centre of which is near Warsaw. The boundary between the East and West European continental masses also runs through Poland. Poland's total surface area is 322,500 sq km (312,600 sq km of land, 1,200 sq km of inland waters, and 8,700 sq km of territorial waters). The main part of the District of Dzierżoniów is situated in Przedgórze Sudeckie. North- eastern mountains- sides of the Sowie Mountains, a part of Ślęża Massif, and Mount Radunia are also included in the Districts area.

6 Dzierżoniów was founded in 12th century.

7 Nicholas Copernicus - born Feb. 19, 1473, Torun, Poland, died May 24, 1543, Frauenburg, East Prussia [now Frombork, Poland] His name in Polish was Mikołaj Kopernik. He was a Polish astronomer who proposed that the planets have the Sun as the fixed point to which their motions are to be referred; that the Earth is a planet which, besides orbiting the Sun annually, also turns once daily on its own axis; and that very slow, long-term changes in the direction of this axis account for the precession of the equinoxes. This representation of the heavens is usually called the heliocentric, or "Sun-centred," system--derived from the Greek helios, meaning "Sun." Copernicus's theory had important consequences for later thinkers of the scientific revolution, including such major figures as Galileo, Kepler, Descartes, and Newton. The book that contains the final version of his theory, De revolutionibus orbium coelestium libri vi ("Six Books Concerning the Revolutions of the Heavenly Orbs"), did not appear in print until 1543, the year of his death.
