What is in Poland that England doesn't have?

It is true these places are extremely beautiful, as are the places described by Sir George.

Each place whether it be England or Poland are captured for their natural creative beauty and individualism, therefore it is totally unfair to to state that one is better than the other.

Very true, but Sir George was being a bit ignorant with his comments i don't he's been to those places in Poland i've described.

We lost our upper class after '39 butchered by USSR so this culture is lost in Poland

I would be grateful if you could explain. Do you mean when many of your academics were persecuted under the Russian's. I would just like to know a little more from a Polish view, rather than from international history that one reads. Thanks.

Puszcza Białowieska

Very beautiful forest. And biologists from all over Europe go there for its unique environment.

I thought a gaggle of kobiety have went to England (much to noimmi's/glaswegian's dismay).....

Katyn Massacre

"The number of victims is estimated at about 22,000, the most commonly cited number is 21,768."

"About 8,000 were officers taken prisoner during the 1939 Soviet invasion of Poland, the rest being Poles arrested for allegedly being intelligence agents, gendarmes, saboteurs, landowners, factory owners, lawyers, priests, and officials."

My answer to the question posed in the title of this thread is simply:

Thinner people and better weather.

Exceedingly bad roads which Neil Armstrong wouldn't have been able to drive along!

Areas of natural beauty which have not all been sanitised for tourists.

Wildlife which you can be scared of (wolves and wild boar). It's a great feeling to see/meet one and feel you really are in the wilderness.

Horse drawn farm vehicles being used for real. Sounds patronising, but it is kind of sweet to see a horse drawn cart going through the village.

It is sad, however, on the other hand, it suggests farmers are now rich enough to have motor vehicles (or poor enough not to have horses!).

We still have a few in our villages in warmia. In fact, when the school bus didn't show up one day the local farmer picked all the kids up in his cart. The local paper had a field day.

We have them in Britain too.

Out door privvies. It was funny when I visited a heritage museum in Shropshire and people were laughing at the privvy saying, "I bet Grandma remembers them". I'd been using one a week before in Suwalki.

Having seen the summer adverts...

It has been a while since I drove on a UK motorway (maybe it is just written) and I might be thinking of autobahns in Germany.
