Once you arrive in Poland, whether you like ot or not, you will have to pay for many things, just like you do pretty much anywhere else. Your hotel, taxi, food, public transport and so on. As Poland is not in the Euro zone you may be a bit confused about the currency and worry about possible payment methods. It’s an unneccessary worry – payment in Poland is as easy as anywhere else.

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.

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.  

Polish Prices – Basic groceries

Poland is known to have low prices compared to most of the other European Union states. However, I found that it may be difficult for tourists and business travellers to actually get a feeling for how much they will need to pay. The Polish prices are low, but perhaps not as low as some make them out to be.

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.

I’ll go on with the second post on the Polish language. And I will keep using the frase “Polish in Poland” – it’s almost a tongue-braker, isn’t it? The idea is to give you some rough guidelines on the language and the way we use it. This time, we’ll go through some real basics.
