Swedish term or phrase: tillrinningsområde
Att Polens floder mynnar ut i Östersjön, att fisken hämtas hem däruppifrån, att hälften av befolkningen i Östersjöns tillrinningsområde bor i Polen finns inte i det allmänna medvetandet, för de flesta polacker är det bräckta havet vid den korta kustlinjen någonting väldigt avlägset och abstrakt.
