One large part of Poland's culture is its language. Polish languages make up the Lechitic subgroup of West Slavic Languages, which are the most common western European languages, but the main one spoken today is modern Polish. Polish is written in a slightly modified version of the Latin alphabet.

Music is another large part of Polish culture and, while it's not as widely popular as it was, still shows Polish culture's evolution throughout history. Previously, some of the most popular types of music were traditional folk music. Today, Poland is one of the most respected scenes for death metal and various tech music.

Literature and art is also to be considered when discussing Polish culture. While art has taken a back seat in Poland, it still maintains style unique to other geographically similar countries. Polish literature has given birth to many famous writers in areas such as Vilnius and Lviv. Some writers that emerged from here during the early 20th century were Bruno Schulz, Bolesław Leśmian, and Józef Czechowicz
