As a native English speaker i would never say "where lies Poland...". It sounds ludicrously dramatic. I would say "where does Poland lie..."

What we choose as the default translation also becomes the prompt for the reverse exercise. The current wording gives you a fighting chance at arriving at a natural Norwegian translation.
