Of course Poland is a good place to live, why would it be otherwise. What you might want to consider in your choice is language, job, culture, etc. It's a good place to live but not everybody can do that.

It depends where you come from. Poland is a good place to live, but it's not as "easy to live" as in the States for example since average pay is much lower and food and other products tend to be more expensive. But as far as the beauty of the country and freedom is concerned, it's the way to go. In Poland, for example, you can freely go to a forrest and nobody's going to shoot you just because you entered a private land or something...

Move to Poland, but remember to learn the Polish language first (at least the basics). You will feel more free there. In general, Central and Eastern Europe is very nice; you won't notice this being in the US or Canada...

Best for what exactly?

My semi-retired parents like the rural areas in the east because of the forests etc And it's very relaxed.

I am in my 20's and much prefer a big city with lots of things to do. I really like Krakow. It's beautiful, good airport links and there is much to see and do with a great atmosphere. I have only been to a handful of Polish cities.

London is ok, but both are dirty and full of crimes. I'd say Krakow, Wroclaw or Tricity.

hey guys!
How are you?
Well, I'm from Brazil and Graduate in Business; I have experience in USA too...
Soo I'm starting to think about live in Poznan - Poland, I would like u guys tell me about it!
Please!
I have a princess in Poznan and I'm thinking to move and be with her!
How is life in Poznan and about job?
I appreciate any contact.
gumishu   7 Mar 2009  #16

marco - if you have business oriented education, know English well and are native Portuguese speaker I think there is a good chance you can get a job in Poland. But I think it would be wise to look for a job before moving (most companies accept e-mail applications) and to make sure your Polish is not next to none. You can for example start with applying for Geronimo Martins which is a Portuguese company owning the largest network of supermarkets in Poland (Biedronka) and which is based in Kostrzyn on the Polish-German border not that far from Poznań. (But I think they may have some offices in Poznań itself)

anyway Poznań is a quite big and business oriented city as for Polish standard. (for example yearly international multi-branch fairs are held there)
I hope you get even more and more specific information from other Polish people here.
Good Luck.

You mean the bunch of criminals who made their employees wearing pampers such as not to loose 5 minutes going to the loo???
As a matter of principle I never ever enter a Biedronka store.

Home and 'belonging' in a country appears to be nothing to do with birthplace or upbringing. I know more than one Polish national here who feels that Scotland is their favourite palce in teh world to be (and there will be many who have the opposit opinion, obviously!). I'm only 1/4 Polish (Dziadek came across here during war with Sikorski et al) and I would personally move back to Poland tomorrow. Ironically, my (Polish) wife prefers it here!

I wonder if Polish has the same phrase 'The Grass Is Always Greener...'?

B-stok is nice, pretty green city. The heart of Zubr and Zubrowka. :)
And the new Galeria Alfa is probably the best designed mall I've seen.

3. The culture and history.

4. Better wages.

SzwedwPolsce - do you live in Bialystok?
I haven't seen Galeria Alfa. I have to visit B-stok soon, I think. So many changes at one time (new Jagiellonia Gallery, Galeria Biała...)

Yes I do. :) Galeria Biała is just an ordinary mall. But Galeria Alfa is really cool, skilled architects. Even Pałac Branickich has got a face lift.

Branicki Palace


But now we are waiting for the spring here in Białystok.

Nice.:-] But I don't like what Council did with place around the City Hall. There was a little park few years ago, now there is a pedestrian zone.

Cities should be more, not less, green. Fortunately there are nice clubs here where you can go, drink beer and forget about stupid mistakes like this.
PaulinaK14*   22 Mar 2009  #26

That's so true.

Belonging to the place is something totaly different than being born here or there...

I am pure Polish living in Poland again after so many years of living abroad and found it inferior, I feel that I don't have the same access to the different societies as I had in UK and it doesn'k work for me very well. I don't think I am developing in a sense. I am just living in Poland, and that's it. From one day to another, the second option is working in Poland, in the place where I work the "team work" doesn't exist, people just care about themselves in a very selfish way sometimes, also refuse to do many things and are not friendly...The potential is fantastic, though, on the contrary.

I dreamt of being close to my family and strenghten the family bonds but noone really cares about these things in a way I am used to care.

Not having my own family in here, makes me feel very lonely and full of frustration.

Anyway, ..... ;)

Coming back to the place you come from after living long time abroad can be not as relieving as it sounds.

I am full of dissapointment, that's all.

I would tell everyone I know not to move here.
I don't hate it.
There's just as many ups as there are downs.
Im just use to a melting pot of cultures and an easy way
of making a living. Polish is freaking hard to learn.
The nature is gorgeous here:) and I do love the colorful buildings
Scenery is great. Vegetables have more flavor.

Different places, different culture, different way of living.

Different people like different places.
