Personally I find Russian a much more refined and melodious language than Polish. personal comment removed

Yaizindiya,

That's because Polish borrowed all the consonants from Russian, but never bothered to return themLOL

Indeed, Russian is more melodious and sounds different to Polish.

In defense of Polish, it has a tenderness, almost more upbeat sounding, whereby Russian sort of oozes along like a viscous river, flowing to it's ineluctible, glottal conclusion!

An interesting post from a native Russian speaker and his view at the other Slavic languages:

I do understand general emotion or direction of phrases in Belorussian and Ukrainian. But I tried to watch a movie in Ukrainian and it was harsh. I didn't understand a single dialog (but I did get many words' meanings which were not useful). I guess the problem is that I do not know grammar and how the words are build. Maybe I would get a lot after couple of months but I do not have such an aim.

And as for other Slavic languages like Polish, Czech... I do not understand anything. Neither written nor said.

Polish is more archaic (has sounds, forms of speech or writing that are no longer current in modern slavic languages and belong to the common Slavic period (cc. 500-1000 AD)) in comparison with Russian. The sound of Polish is the sound of centuries.

Anyway Polish influences in Russian are more palpable and more important than vice versa
