Firstly Maria Skłodowska also should work because it was her real name: Maria Skłodowska-Curie. Secondly we all Poles use names pierogi and pączki. 3rd issue I didn't know how to spell Tur in English. 4th The last king was Stanisław August Poniatowski. Stanislaw was only his first name, in Poland we call kings by their surnames. 5th Also Mikołaj Kopernik should work because it is his real name. 6th First name of Chopin is Fryderyk not Frederic. 7th Oder id Odra in Polish so it also should work. 8th I think Solidarność is more popular name than Solidarity of that trade union. But thanks for making quiz about Poland :) you probably didn't know about those facts.

Copernicus didn't have a "real name" (at least no "real" spelling): https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nicolaus_Copernicus#Name.

Accept Odra and Wisla since those are the only names Polish people use for the rivers. Also "paczek" should also be accepted since it's the singular version of paczki.

If we're being pedantic, Copernicus didn't "create" (that would be whatever higher being you believe in) or even really "discover" (Aristarchus of Samos, Seleucus, and many others before Copernicus) the heliocentric model. A better clue would be "Polish astronomer who popularized the heliocentric model" or something like that.

Is it just me, or is this quiz particularly difficult among the country quizzes? I feel some of the questions here are rather specific. Might just be that I don't know much about Poland though.

Shouldn't solidarity mean a worker union, not trade ? Also solidarity protested against polish communist government, not USSR or eastern block at all

Anyone who doesn't know 'a wild polish cattle that went extinct in 1627' and 'the last king of Poland', must live under a rock. Not.
