Investing: Company Shares in Poland

My dilemma is this: I know the market I want to invest in. I know the companies I want to invest in. However I want to invest in other European markets. Does anyone know the best way to go about doing this from Poland or, better yet, have experience doing the same?

All the information I have found applies to an investor (or entity) being in the country one wants to invest in. All of the Polish information is really complicated and I haven't found anyone who can give me a straightforward answer (perhaps it's because of my questions though). I am mainly told to go to a makler, but i think there might be a more direct way of dealing with investing than through a third party.

Do any Poles invest in other European Share Markets and if so, what's the best way to go about doing it?

I am not sure about other European countries except for the UK but it is very easy for me to buy shares in Poland through specialised banks or brokers. My sharedealing in the UK is simplicity itself as I deal with a broker there.

I sold most of my shares in August fortunately more a question of dumb luck as I needed to release a lot of money rather than being able to predict stock market uncertainty. Good luck.

There are many ADRs of companies in Europe listed on the US stock exchanges. You can buy most major world companies on the US or London exchange but for Polish companies - mostly funds. But check it would I have seen Russian, French, and everything else traded as an ADR. But more important than stocks is the market as a whole ->

Who cares about stocks if the trend is down.
