Was the largest country in the world, covering approximately one sixth of the earth's land surface. It is two and a half times the size of the United States. It covered most of the northern half of Asia and a large part of Eastern Europe.

Germany is in Western and Central Europe, with Denmark bordering to the north, Poland and the Czech Republic to the east, Austria and Switzerland to the south, France and Luxembourg to the southwest, and Belgium and the Netherlands to the northwest.. It is the seventh largest country by area in Europe and the 62nd largest in the world.

Poland's territory extends across several geographical regions. In the north-west is the Baltic seacoast, which extends from the Bay of Pomerania to the Gulf of Gdańsks.The centre and parts of the north lie within the North European Plain.

The long and cold winter had a profound impact on almost every aspect of life in the Soviet Union. It affected where and how long people live and work and what kinds of crops are grown and where they are grown (no part of the country has a year-round growing season).

The climate is mostly temperate throughout the country. The climate is oceanic in the north and west and becomes gradually warmer and continental towards the south and east. Summers are generally warm, with average temperatures between 18 °C and 30 °C depending on a region. Winters are rather cold, with average temperatures around 3 °C in the northwest and −6 °C in the northeast.

Most of Germany has a temperate seasonal climate in which humid westerly winds predominate. The climate is moderated by the North Atlantic Drift, the northern extension of the Gulf Stream. This warmer water affects the areas bordering the North Sea; consequently in the northwest and the north the climate is oceanic. Germany gets an average of 789 mm precipitation per year. Rainfall occurs year-round, with no obligatory dry season. Winters are mild and summers tend to be warm, temperatures can exceed 30 °C.
