Is there anything remarkable about it?

As far as I know magnitude 4 earthquakes are constantly happening all over the world

yeah the American commonality is to bother with 4+ within USA or 5+ elsewhere

5 miles deep and no reports of injuries, lucky Polish

"Poland
is known as a region of very low seismicity, however some earthquakes occur from time to time. The historical
catalogue consists of less than one hundred earthquakes in the time span of almost one thousand years."

Although only 4.4 magnitude it is fairly shallow at 4.9 KM or 3 miles deep. Would have given a good shake to those around it! Are earthquakes usual to this part of the world?

Yes, on the emsc site, the search for the EQ with mag>5 gives no results.

Another search with mag>4.5 gives only 15 results in 8 years, with a max 4.9eq in February 2010:
