Food / MARMITE IN POLAND? [96]

Marmite, shipped from UK to PL, must cost about 50 quid a jar.

Actually only £2.39 if you send the big squeezy tub!

Should be enough to keep Seanus going for a couple of months.
Enjoy mate,

Food / MARMITE IN POLAND? [96]

I've found it in only 2 shops in Warsaw, but it's about 5 times the price it is over here! Happy to help out - treat it as an early or late birthday present ;)

The squeezy tubs aren't too heavy, so PM me and I'll be happy to send some over.

Travel / Best hotel in WARSAW, near the center? [14]

Yes the Rialto is a far better hotel than the Hilton. But it is also more than double the price (best rate for a double room at the Hilton is EUR 61, at the Rialto it's EUR 128).

You can get better deals at if you use their own website. hotelrialto.com.pl/en/

99 Euro is what I normally pay for a one bed suite. Not cheap I agree, but you get what you pay for, and the OP asked for the best.

I can't believe what I'm reading.
Forget the over priced chains and go for something with character and class..........

Rialto wins hands down.

UK, Ireland / How to get Polish TV in Britian [17]

Ok, finally got the system set up - and it was pretty striaght forward but involved a trip to Poland to get the decoder and set up the account with Cyfra+ with a Polish address.

Once back home all I had to do was buy a 60cm dish and fix it to the wall. Locating the satellite was a bit tricky, but got there in the end. Connected the cables and Bobs your uncle!

The contract with Cyra was 520PLN for 15 months (Pakiet Podstawowy+), and the dish £30, say £140 all in.

Even taking into account the £80 flight, it works out a hell of a lot cheaper than some websites that charge £900 for the same thing.

Thanks for the help, hopes this is useful for others.

UK, Ireland / How to get Polish TV in Britian [17]

Not all of it I agree, but that's actually the point...........by watching/listening to it, I hope that I'll be able to get a better handle on the cases and improve my very basic Polish. Trying to learn without being in Poland and hearing how the language is spoken is a complete nightmare.

I'm lucky enough to spend a fair amount of time in Warsaw, and always learn more just being there for a week or so than sticking my head in a book for hours on end.

UK, Ireland / How to get Polish TV in Britian [17]

I'm trying to find out how to get Polish Sat tv in Scotland. A friend brought a decoder over from Warsaw, connected it to a dish and hey presto. Trouble is, she's since moved to france and I've lost the contact details of the guy that helped her install it.

I don't have Sky so that's not an option. Any help appreciated.

Travel / Visiting Krakow - looking for 30something nightclub [9]

LC,
That's a possibilty, but we'd prefer a nightclub with DJ and dance floor that atracts a slightly older crowd. All that drum and Bass does my ears in after 30mins. If I start going to Jazz clubs I'll start to feel like my old man.

Thanks,

Travel / Visiting Krakow - looking for 30something nightclub [9]

I'll be back visiting Krakow this weekend and looking for a decent nightclub that's not full of students. Not that I've anything against students, just want somewhere that plays more mellow tunes and isn't 'standing room only'.

Panorama sounded interesting untill I say the website - reminded me of the student union at Strathclyde, and that was 20 years ago! ;)

Any help appreciated.

UK, Ireland / Where can I buy DVDs in Polish language near Glasgow? [11]

Hi PD. There's a few Polish Deli's near me in the centre, but although they do a fine line in kieĊ‚basa no DVD's unfortunately. I'll keep looking, maybe ebay or gumtree will have something?

UK, Ireland / Where can I buy DVDs in Polish language near Glasgow? [11]

Preferably somewhere near or in Glasgow. I've tried HMV, Virgin or Zavvi as it now seems to be called, and there are very few films released that have Polish language option or subtitles.

I've Polish friends coming to visit over Christmas and there will be a few Polish kids, so also looking for Children's films in Polish too.

Any help appreciated.
Thanks,
G
