You shouldn't believe everything you 'hear' ^^
It's not Iraq, it's Poland ;) I spent 2 days in Warsaw in July. I saw Asians, Blacks, Arabs, etc. It's not as 'cosmopolitan' as London or Paris (for example), but you won't be 'attacked' because you're not Polish ;)

Don't worry, and have a nice time there.

That's what happen when people tell crap to everyone ;)
"Hey, you shouldn't visit the US, it's full of hurricanes and terrorists" ;)

well I guess that if I came on these boards and saw crap like what Warsaw8 and all them spew I'd ask questions too.

This Polish guy who came over my place once tried to scare me and told me I should seriously look into getting a gun. Knowing nothing about Poland at all I couldn't really dismiss what he was saying. But I came, no gun, am safe.

Don't hassle people and enjoy a quiet drink and you should be okay.

No, you will surely be beaten by the roving gangs of skinheads. There is a concentration camp on every corner. Villagers will come to your flat with torches and pitchforks and children will throw rotten fruit at you.

Stop with these f'ing threads about "I'm *insert brown nationality here*, is it safe for me to come to Poland". Look at one of the other 3 threads currently on the front page of this section about this very same topic.

Does it depend on which bit of Asia?
Thai, Korean, Chukchi, Tuvan, Tibetan, Sri Lankan - there you go: six Asians.

yellow people...

Do Gold Members on PF count as yellow people?

I think its a sure fire bet their Pakistani/Indian Brits, you guys will be fine, people will stare non stop in the streets. Warsaw they may not stare so much but still a lot.#

Actually Poles stare non stop at anything and everything anyway just more so at certain things. I just ignore it these days.

I find Poznan safer than Plymouth at night, I know lots of guys from the UAE studying medicine and they have rarely had problems. Don't look for trouble and you won't find it.

Come to think of it WB people here do stare at things an awful lot. If someone hears you speaking English in a shop the older generation and the uneducated are gobsmacked. Likewise when they see a car with the steering wheel on the right hand side.
