    Hello,

    You can use the reverse geocoder (GetLocationInfo method).

    Yes, i know this possibility now. But - geographic coordinates which I want to resolve to country/city are from Poland. And does it some problem - GetLocationInfo fails in Poland coordinates (except some part of west Poland, near Germany)

    Hello,

    MapPoint doesn't have detailed converage in Poland, which it would need to do reverse geocodes.
