Correct Way to write a polish address.

Hi. Can anyone tell me what is the correct way to write a polish address?
i.e. I know the name comes first, but what happens after that. Any post i have sent has made it there successfully but was just curious as to the correct way.

My understanding of the correct way is:
- Name
- Street address followed by number
- Postal Code followed by City/Town name

Is this correct?

this is also correct

Mister Jim Smith
66-087, Szcześćóńska
ul. Głowna 82

there is no format like in North America. It seems that it just goes.

No, it is not. The correct way is to write street address first, then postal code followed by town name.

Mr John Smith
ul. Główna 82
00-001 Warszawa

This way is correct.

Mind you, according to the post code, Mr Smith lives in the Palace of Culture. Hope he likes the view!

i'm not about to enter a pissing contest..... but with the 100's of fakturaVATS i've got in the past few months, i'd say that 85% of them have it as i posted.

But surely not on the envelope?
