Poland (Polish: Polska) is a country in Central Europe featured in Euro Truck Simulator 2.

Summary

The country is bordered by Lithuania to the northeast, Belarus and Ukraine to the east, Slovakia and the Czech Republic to the south, and Germany to the west. The country also borders the Russian exclave Kaliningrad Oblast to the north. The country first appeared in Euro Truck Simulator, being the easternmost country featured in that game. The adaptation was known for its extensive network of roads, despite having only its capital Warszawa featured. In Euro Truck Simulator 2, Poland is featured in 2 stages, with the western quarter introduced in the base game, and the rest of the country added in the Going East! expansion.

The total area of Poland is 312,679 square km. Poland has 280,401 km of paved roads, 2,820 km of which are motorways and expressways. Polish capital Warsaw offers wonderful examples of architecture and about a quarter of the city is filled with parks and gardens.

Connections

There are three classes of numbered roads in Poland:

  • Autostrada (Prefix A) – Motorways, major roads
  • Droga Ekspresowa (Prefix S) – Expressways, major roads
  • Droga krajowa (no prefix) – National roads, can be major or minor roads

Polish road numbers in ETS2 usually follow one route, with prefix added for sections with higher standard.

Three numbered Autostrada and two numbered Droga ekspresowa routes are featured in ETS2, and several Droga krajowa are also marked both on the world map and on in-game signage. Droga krajowa 48 has an icon image present in the game files, but the actual Polish DK48 is not rendered in the game at all, and so the icon is never used.

Unnumbered roads are also abundant in Poland, with external connections as follows:

Note: As of 2024, the signage for national roads R1 and R4 are obsolete, as since the release of the Going East! DLC in 2013, both the A1 and A4 have been completed (A4 in 2016, and A1 in 2022). Their respective DK routes have been redesignated as R91 and DK94 respectively, but the game has yet to be updated to fully reflect this change. In addition, other sections of national roads have been redesignated or reclassified since 2013 as more motorways have been constructed, so the in-game map and designations may no longer reflect reality in some areas.

Seven Class-A and four Class-B European Routes (Polish: Trasa europejska) are included in-game:
