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.

One of the things I miss when I’m travelling is a good overwiev of local radio channels, especially when I’m driving. So I thought it maybe useful for you if I present the most popular ones. I focused on Warsaw radio stations because there are many (a total of 33 if I’m not mistaken) and the popular ones can be found all over Poland (although under different frequencies).  

Polish carnival time!

Poland is a Roman-Catholic country. Pretty much everyone seems to know this. In reality, the overall influence of religion on people seems to be relatively small and there’s a big pressure of the “young and wise” to get rid of religious remains in general.
