Moving to Poland from Dubai, living on 22,000 PLN a month

21 Aug 2007 /  #1
I am currently based in Dubai (American) and have been asked to move to Poland. My primary request is that I maintain my tax free status (or they increase to make the net amount the same). This equates to about 22,000 pzl a month. Now I know that this is significantly higher than most salaries in Poland, but what kind of lifestyle could I honestly have in Warsaw (i.e. type of apartment, level of car, etc). I appreciate any responses, but want to make sure level of life would be the same as Dubai (which has gotten out of hand lately).

Do you really need to ask? With a salary that much you'd think you'd have more of a clue.

Firstly weather, is not something money can affect. However on the plus you'll be in a prime position to visit other European cities on cheap flights.

22,000zl will be very nice thank you very much. Sod renting a place get on the housing market with wages like those securing a morgage will not be hard. On 22,000zl I hired myself a driver at the weekends and get myself ferried around the nightspots getting mangelized. However I've got a wife so no more fun for me. I

Polish teachers are stupid? Or just the victims of circumstance?

you could probably buy the town, the poles are so desperate for cash they would sell their grandmother to you
