    I must be a minority but I prefer being called an Eastern European as I feel its more inline with our language, ethnicity and culture, it's nothing to be ashamed of

    Coming from US, Poland doesn't feel so cheap. It is much cheaper to live here permanently, but visiting restaurants and hotels in a center of big cities will cost you. Also, paying in bigger bills is not a problem. More often I have a problem paying in US with a $100 than with 100 or even 200 zloty in Poland.

    I have just learned a lot about myself... Really do not go for any cliches in civilised places, like Poland. While it might be funny to watch someone talk about those we are actually not barbarians... Also, Warszawa is different to other places ];->

    "Poles much rather call themselves Central Europeans rather than Eastern Europeans" that's stupid anyone who objectively looks at a European map should know that much of Poland is geographically situated in Eastern Europe not Central Europe.

    It’s a polish superstition, we believe it’s a bad luck if you shake someone hand in the doorsteps. You forgot mention that if you go to someone’s house or to the restaurant and you wear a hat you should take it off. Most of polish houses have crosses so you should take the hat off, eating with the hat on it’s just rude and they will probably as you if you are Jewish 😂

    Sorry but mistaking Poland with Russia or Ukraine means that someone has a serious problem with geography ;) The same with the central and eastern Europe thing. Because Poland is in fact in the central Europe. And is very different from Russia or the Ukraine, so are the people, and the culture, and the history. So of course that Poles don't like it, who would? Would an US citizen like to be called British, Canadian or Australian or have their continent called Asia or whatever else? Just learn your geography when you come visit other countries; don't merge in one the neighbouring countries only, because you know nothing about them. Especially if those countries do not have friendly relations and rough history behind. Make that your "to do" thing before you visit, and you won't commit so many shameful "don'ts" ;)

    Absolutely spot on! I have been to Poland many times and for me it is home away from home. Only one tiny comment, I notice this with every American, it is Krak-uf, not Krak-cow! Wrocław is Vratswaf and Warsaw is Vashava.

    What a laugh! When they deicde to come over to the UK they dont learn the language properly and come across as very rude as they bring their customs here (which are vastly different from ours). A message to all immigrants in the UK - when in Rome do what the Romans do! Dont disrespect us and obey the law or try to change them!

    Polish food and friendliness is epic!

  • brightonbeautiful

    Not many of your don'ts are really specific to Poland they are just generic don'ts of most countries. You might as well say the Polish won't like it if you pick your nose and eat it when in a restaurant

  • brightonbeautiful

    It's rude to be late in Poland. Erm please tell me in what country is it not rude to be late
