It has meant that major territorial changes could be produced by the minor variations in the balance of power, and that states could expand or contract faster and further than anywhere else in Europe. The Polish state was no exception. From a nucleus between the Odra (Oder) and Vistula Rivers, it expanded in moments of strength with great rapidity, reaching the Baltic, the Dnieper, the Black Sea, and the Carpathians.
