Real Estate / Article: Poland becomes real estate leader [16]

News / Follow the leaders invest in Poland [8]

I am a great fan of Poland. it is a great country and DTZ has tipped Poland as being a tiger economy with excelerated growth for the next ten years

I am very amused by the McKinsey report 'how about just saying that Poland is four times bigger than any other country in CEE consequently they have more doctors, vets, students, trapeze artists, watch repairers and just about anything else than any of their neighbours' in fact they will have four times more at least

Life / Polish Train Travel - Scary? [101]

I used to take the night train to Prague a lot and the guards used to tell everybody to keep the windows closed as thieves in the Czech Republic would climb through your window on your couchette and rob you blind when the train stopped at the station.

The Warsaw Poznan route used to be a favourite for thieves also

I have had friends who have been robbed on Polish trains but I do not believe that they are any worse than UK trains. There used to be gangs of steamers around Ilford who would attack and rob everyone on the train and then get off at the next station. At least this does not happen in Poland.

Real Estate / Price per sqm in Lodz [9]


Could you tell us which location, the size of the apartment, whether it is off plan or secondary market?

as a general rule of thumb, expect the prices in Lodz to grow to similar prices as in the Tri City area. Unlikely that they will get as high as Warsaw or Krakow
