This is a dangerous question - depends who you ask and when.. :-)

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.

Polen er et land i Sentral-Europa og grenser i vest mot Tyskland, i sør mot Tsjekkia og Slovakia, i øst mot Ukraina og Hviterussland, og i nord mot Østersjøen, Lituaen og Russland (Wikipedia)

Seriously...leave that cat alone... Poland, get up and lie down somewhere else!
