In case of problems say that you are Irish, not British.
Jestem Irlandczykiem. To jest prawda.
Seriously, is being Irish safer than being English?
Anyway, a couple of questions about Kraków, where I'm headed soon. To jest mój pierwszy raz w Polsce.
1. Do people appreciate it if you speak Polish, even if not perfectly, or would they prefer English?
Krakow is a tourist city and there is a lot of spoken English - you will do fine.
Honestly, Miranda, I'd prefer to speak Polish but do local people have the patience to put up with those whose first language it clearly isn't?
2. Where are the best jazz venues? Not the big touristy ones.
3. What are the best venues in the city to listen to traditional Polish music? Again, not the touristy ones.
4. If I'm out late, is it easy to get a taxi back to the hotel? (It certainly isn't in Dublin on a Saturday night!)
