Facebook chose Warsaw, Poland, as the site of its new offices for central and Eastern Europe, opening its doors Thursday and covering 30 countries and some 46 million users, according to reports.

According to ZDNet, Facebook created a Careers page for Warsaw earlier this month, and the social network’s new office are located at the Zlote Tarasy mall and office center, next to the capital city’s main railroad station.
