As for Mr M's comments about films being made in Poland, why the hell not, they've used Czech republic enough times (and yes the one that was supposed to have been filmed in Slavakia - Hostal - was actually filmed in Czech Rep).....

That post was born after my short conversation with my much, much younger cousin. I got really frustrated because he appeared to know more about the history of USA rather than his own country. He doesn't have many hobbies or any passions and all his knowledge is usually taken from the movies. Thus my thought that he would get more interested in our country if it was more present in Hollywood productions, but not as a scenery but rather as a "main hero". I was just frustrated and exaggerated a little, but the guy is really “slow motion”. :) :)

I know that there wouldn't be any problems with shooting a film in Poland. Funny that you mentioned "Hostel" because there is a plan to shoot the third part of it in Poland. Of course they still haven't made the second part so everything might happen and it may change.

Ahhh yes pornography.....we see what on your mind. Is that what you would've like me to say? :)

I know- those old cities - hard work FISZ is not going to be impressed - he only believes in photography

I was very impressed with what I saw. I believe in capturing memories :)

I think babylon's looking for man sex. I'm pretty sure Arrggh is male. But he may want your Gay Guy number :)

Just joking B, but do you agree with Arrggh? Why?

Czech people don't believe in God. They are the most atheistic country in the world. How would you expect Poland to follow such behavior? Poland is one of the few countries where the real and long-term values are most important. Countries like Czech Republic or other "modern/plastic/overnight followers" without their own values and integrity have only such "values" like "sex" or "gay thing" to offer.

==============================

I may like Poles, and I would probably enjoy Poland, but I am horrified by the above prejudices.

I think I would argue that of all European countries, the UK is possibly the least religious of any, closely followed by France......most of the churches have closed anyway.

Knowing a gay Slovakian, I can tell you that he is very religious, and it is not long since the Czech Republic and Slovakia were one and the same.

I can also state with authority, that Czechoslovakia (as was), was the fourth wealthiest country in the world until 1930, with brilliant scientists and engineers who have contributed (and still contribute) much to world knowledge and development. Musically, the region is one of the most exciting in the world, with a vibrant culture known and respected throughout the world. I don't know too much about literary history, but the fact that the first democratically elected President was a poet, suggests that he was something of a popular hero.

I wouldn't want to draw comparisons with Poland....a country and people I respect, but which has suffered many difficulties as everyone knows. The difference is, I suspect, one of good governance over a considerable period of time.

I think that by claiming moral superiority for the very religious Poles, and comparing them with "modern/plastic/overnight followers" (who may not subscribe to strictly catholic and very Polish religious values), the author mirrors the sort of ideology best represented by skinheads and "the terrible twins" who now rule in Poland.

As the son of a fine man who went to war over Poland and the rise of Nazi Germany in Europe, I find that sort of thinly veiled nationalism offensive.

Of all the countries in Europe, I would have thought that the Poles would be last to welcome brutal skinheads onto the streets, and then play the role of cheerleaders in the anti-gay onslaught. For a country which desperately needs EU development money and a new lease of life, I can think of nothing which more offends everything which the EU stands for in terms of citizenship and human-rights.

If Poland is perceived as "anti democratic" and "anti human rights," does it deserve respect (and financial support) from those of us Europeans who value such things and are prepared to defend them?

Don't be such a drama queen. 1 guy said this then split. He doesn't speak for PL.

Welcome to the real world:). Here you can actually find out what people think and would never tell you to your face.
Poland is a conservative country and it has never been exposed to too much of anything during the communist time, so it's going to take another generation to develop more tolerant views, but that takes time

exactly changes take time.

and I personally prefer sometimes bit conservative views that "toooo" tolerant.

just because something is not conservative it doesn't mean it has to be too tolerant.

I know, I probably like balance.

I think that it is sometimes difficult to compare living in UK- "over-political correct" country and inPoland where our Gov seems to be quite intolerant.....

===========================

I don't think I am being a drama queen, having seen footage of the incidents I mentioned.

The point I was making is not concerned with politcal correctness at all. I am entitled to my prejudices just as anyone else is, and to an extent, I am free to express them anywhere in Europe so far as the law allows.

What you can NEVER have is institusionalised prejudice in the EU; no matter what happens on the streets.

The fact that there is obvious conflict between traditional catholic Poland, and those of a more liberal outlook, is not very important.....that's life. However, when things become political, then there is immediate conflict which divides, bids for power and then sets the future agenda. That way, the very foundation of democracy comes under threat.

Human Rights legislation is therefore more powerful and more important than the beliefs of one person, one party, one faith or one country.

Part of the EU Constitution outlines the freedom to express and exchange information, and it is for this fundamental reason that the beloved, and rather odd (in my view) President of Poland, was dragged across the carpet by the EU.

If the Polish President (or his twin brother) doesn't uphold EU principles, then Poland has a problem, because he DOES speak for Poland on the world stage.

What an interesting thread....
Personally I find Poland quite "sexy" much "sexier" than Prague & other places in Czech, which was become super commercialized thanks to the EU. LOTS of hookers in Czech & Slovakia by the borders... I don't know what Aaarrrggh is talking about.

The few Polish men I have come across in my travels have been very POLITE and quite handsome. And Hey, there are those of us that dig the religious thing. I like going to Poland and that is one of the things that make me feel good there.

If I was 10 yrs younger & had no responsibilities, you would find me teaching English somewhere in Poland & spending time with a handsome, smart, polite, religious & SEXY Polish guy.

One of the many reasons I find Poland "sexy" is because it is still somewhat unspoiled.

Aaarrrrggh, try & change your attitude. Maybe if you tried to be a little more accepting you might make a few friends & go to some Balangi & meet some women!!

When I was in Poland last I had the time of my life, admitidly I went with Polish friends so i had a free tour guide. But we went to house parties almost every night of the week and were in the clubs at the weekend.

You just gotta hang around with the right people.
