So much to see and do and so many nice, accepting people who appreciate it when you appreciate their country. Go to the mountains. Go to the coast. Go to the lakes region. Gdansk, Krakow, Torun, Poznan... Never a bad experience (other than a few too many girls overbearingly drumming up business for the strip clubs in Krakow). - May 2018

Cheap trips to all over...traveling throughout Poland. Many go to Dubai here in the winter or to the Canary Islands. - Dec 2016


Warsaw has a fascinating history, and we have really enjoyed learning about it. There are some good travel opportunities within the country. Very comfortable express trains go to Krakow, Wroclaw, and Gdansk, with more routes on the way. Polish people are very friendly to Americans and generally more open and polite than many other Central or Eastern Europeans. - Mar 2016


Going to the Warsaw Beer Festival and national/local soccer matches, eating baskets of croissants at sidewalk cafes and following it up with the world's greatest ice cream ever served out of a window, patronizing local designers, traveling to a dozen other countries for weekend trips, and still putting a third of a paycheck in savings every pay period. - Sep 2015


I've loved being able to explore the country and get to know the country much better. There is always something to see and do, both during the week and on the weekends. There are great museums that regularly host temporary exhibits. I've also enjoyed getting to know the Poles are learning more about their culture. Easter is a very special time here, and they greatly value their family life. - Nov 2014
