Real Estate / How to find an apartment in Wroclaw [12]

Might want to try gumtree, lots of owner direct rentals there. Rentals are broken down into agencje and prywatne. You might have to spend a bit of extra time searching through the listings, but it's better than getting bent over by a key manager...

Life / Stolen car parts [30]

How many of you have had parts stolen off your car?

Windshield wipers walked away in the middle of the night on a german plated rental car.

Body panel inserts, front grill, and the glass out of mirrors were professionally removed from my private car. I didn't replace the grill and the plastic body part, and bought some cheap stick on mirror glass replacements and slapped them on. Heating and autodimming doesn't work, but they've stayed put for the last 9 months...

Anyone else have experience with the car parts gnomes?

Law / Transferring leased car to Poland. What to do? [3]

My company car is on Czech plates, both of the points in 1. made by Harry are true. I have never been pulled over here. On the other hand, pieces of my car went missing about every week. I just stopped replacing them, they stopped stealing them.

History / Lifestyles of the communist elite [17]

I hear about how the communist "elite" were living the good life while the citizens struggled. I'm pretty well informed about the day to day life of the citizenry through the various periods of history in communist countries. Does anyone have any information on how the "elite" lived under communism. You hear quite a bit about excesses, but I haven't been able to find any information on people other than heads of state. Anyone have have an idea what kind of perks were given to which people/positions?

Food / Tatar - a raw meat dish [28]

you can get trichnosis from eating the neighbors garbage disposal pig raw. millions of fresh mettwurst sandwiches are sold in german every week without a problem. if you don't trust your source, you probably shouldn't be eating it.

another quick tip for having tartar at a restaurant. the decent places will take the slab of beef out and grind it in front of you. i'm not sure if it's true or not, but i heard that there are a certain additional set of criteria that a restaurant has to achieve with regards to the storage and prep area if they want to sell tartar.

side note, any suggestions for good tartar? there is a place in klodko that was awesome, will dig out the name...
