Hi,
I think that what you heared is true:).Polish woman you can meet in Poland I think the good places are: big cities and there for examples: pubs,or places where are lot of people-market squers.
But norian has got right-Poland is very beautiful country so you should travel to my country and visit touristic places and I think you meet a lot of beautiful woman:).
Cheers,

Hi Alicja, my name is Tran Anh, from VietNam. I am currently studying in Wales. I have never ever visited Poland, but it is one of the countries, no, the foremost country I want to visit. To speak squarely, I know that I can not expect to find exuberantly beautiful artificial or natural sceneries in Poland like those in Italy or France but that doesn’t really matter much to me. The ‘specialness’ of a country lies not in the tangible artefacts but the character of its people. And after a long time of self-interest, hobby-style study of Poland, I believe Poland has managed to build up a distinct, unique set of Polish ideals, which has enriched the world immeasurably by inspiring the deeds of some of the greatest personalities of our humanity. Those ideals are all the more precious to the world today because they are often ignored, just like Poland herself. However on a darker note, I assume that there are awful lots of Poles who care little for those ‘rubbish’ (neo-Nazis, politicians, American-sympathizers…etc). And I am pretty sure that those people far outnumber the ones who observe or are trying to observe the true Polish ideals. Yet, if even only a small portion of Poles who are trying daily to uphold the noble Polish (or rather universal) ideals, then I am pretty sure that Poland is still a most honourably invigorating country in Europe and she fully deserves the affection of mine and others, who are sick of this insanely materialistic world.
I really hope to visit to Poland soon. In the meantime I am trying to stuff as much Polish and Polish things into my head and let Mickiewicz, Sienkiewicz, Joseph Conrad (Korzeniowski) and Chopin be my inspirational reminder of Poland.
All the best,
TA

My boyfriend and I are planning to visit a friend who is studying Krakow. We are trying to find out if it would be better to visit in March or May. Those are the months that would work best for us for traveling, but we have no idea what sort of weather or festivals would make one better than the other.
Other than Auschwitz, what should we make sure we visit while in town?
Also, we were wanting to know how reasonable it is to visit some surrounding countries while we are there. Is it terribly expensive to get to Prague or Berlin by train? Any recommendations?

As usually I write a message to Julee with a lot informations,but I think it is good to inform you that, wheather in Poland for touristic time is better in Spring,Summer even in Autumn,becasue Winter is strong and it is a lot of snow and freezy days,and of course the day is short,night is long.
Around Krakow I recommend you travel to:Auschwitz and Birkenau (ex German Nazi Concentration Camp),Wieliczka Salt Mine,Tyniec Abbey and Tatry Mountains.
Of course,write to me of on the forum and I'll give you more informations about it.:)
Cheers,
Alicja

Hallo!
It is a schame, that tourists see only Krakow/Auschwitz and Zakopane in Poland. Nothing more. They spend here no more than 3 days... Poland has a lot more interesting places - specially in nature area, but not only. I hope that it will be changed in the future.
It is good that any tourists are:)

Polish specially young people knows languages like english(almost each student of University knows english in the lavel that makes you can talk with them.We learn also german,french etc.but the most popular language is English.
Polish is quiete hard language for learning and it isn't popular,so I understand that you don't know Polish;)

I am waiting for your posts and questions:)
