This is my second post on Polish prices. This time, I focused on alcohol and cigarettes as they seem to be of most interest to many tourists in Poland. At the same time, they will probably be a bargain for most of you coming down here from western countries. Hopefully, you will get the feel for what the prices are in Poland for those items.

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.  

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.
