Is the general consensus in Poland that black people shouldn't visit?

ok, just a quick update from my month long trip around central Europe (Poland, Czech, Austria, and Hungary)...... Polish ppl are by far the nicest ppl I met... At first it is true that it can be a little daunting/intimidating to be one of the very few black/brown person in the city, everybody stares, old ppl, young ppl, men, women.. what was a little more intimidating is that the hair style seem to be shaved head or a buzz cut..... However, what i found was most poles are very friendly once you engage them in a conversation or just simply when asking for directions.

I can't speak for the whole country but that's the feeling i got in all three cities i visited (warsaw, krakow, and wroclaw)...... if any one is considering visiting poland, i strongly encourage it!!!!

i visit Poland a couple of times a year (Bielsko) and although there are not many black people living in Poland I always see black people out and about - just not in great numbers.
