I’ve been thinking about writing this post for a while and putting things together in my head. Finally, I hope to have come up with a decent “top ten list” for the reasons as to why one would like to visit Poland, regardless off where you’re actually coming from. I hope you will enjoy my top ten list.

February 14, 2013 in Basic Information, General, Leisure, Polish Matters, Transport, Travelling Poland

In the 3 part of the “driving in Poland” series I would like to go over the speed limits and fines which you can encounter. Also, some things need to be said about whether and how those limits are being observed by Polish drivers and what means does the Police use to catch those who don’t observe them.

Having that one last, full blown party right before getting married should be quite something, right? There are numerous reasons why many people decide on a stag party in Poland to say goodbye to their single state. The options to spend a great night or a great weekend in Poland are endless, and don’t come down just to drinking and lap-dancing.

Most uf us, parents, obviously travel with kids. And when we select a country to visit, we really need to know that the little ones will be safe and enjoy themselves in the process. As Poland may still seem quite exotic to many of you, I’d like to share some of my thought and observation on travelling to Poland with kids.

It is generally quite difficult to find stuff related to Poland online. Of course, in Poland there are many web stores. But they’re in Polish and probably not well suited for foreigners. Which is why I decided to create an online Polish store with Polish merchandise on my own, for your convenience.

In Part 1 of my small series about driving in Poland I wrote much about drinking and driving, the legal alcohol levels and the penalties one can face when caught behind the wheel after a few drinks. Now, I’d like to go a bit through the Polish road system and rules, which may or may not be a little different than what you might be used to back at home. I hope that this series proves useful to some of you – please drop me a line and let me know what you think.

We don’t really get to pick our stars, do we? Today, the Polish news was full of information about Justin Bieber coming to Łódź, Poland on March 25th. The concert will be held at the Atlas Arena. Justin Bieber in Poland is a dream come true for many fans, mostly teenage girls.

As much as I love Poland, there will be times when I have to complain or warn you from certain issues. Unfortunatelly, driving in Poland is one of them and I will have to write at least a few posts on the subject as there are many, many things which require consideration.
