Travel / Poland-Kaliningrad connection? [6]

I saw that there is no LOT connection between Pl-Kaliningrad, why? How people travel between these two places?
My question is not practical, rather theoretical, I'm interested about the background. How are the polticial-economical-tourist relations between them? I read some articles and I saw that they want to strengthen the ties, and make it easier to travel and such things, but how does it look in real life?

History / Why did Hitler want to sign the Non-agression agreement with Poland? [5]

Our professor told that Hitler had changed his geopolitical ideas, but I don't really understand it. Could you please help me and explain it?

I also read it somewhere that the Four Power Pact had contributed to this non agression treaty but still don't really understand it...

Language / How to say "to waste money" in Polish slang? [7]

Thank you! but could also you give me an example, where the verb is also slang (or have some countryside taste), not only the noun "money". I want to express the action itself with such a word.

Language / Dzbanecznik as a synonym of alcohol? [10]

I need a Polish slang word for alcohol, in the meaning of a drink which relieves the troubles, makes you feel better, eases your pain or something like that. Or maybe it's not slang, it can be any synonym which is commonly used for alcoholic drinks. I only found this word, but as I saw it it seems it's not the best choice - i dont even know what it means actually :/

Thanks for any tips.

Polonia / Anything in Hamburg which connects to Polish culture or history? [4]

I will visit Hamburg in the summer, and since I study polonistics, I am interested in everything about Poles and try to find their clues everywhere I go.

Any advice on what should I visit there besides the main attractions in the city?
My main interest is history.

Language / być pod ręką [7]


I would like to ask about the usage of this phrase. Can we use it for human, or only for non living things? Can we use it with mieć, in a possessive context? For example:

Mam przyjaciół zawsze pod reka? - or it doesn't make sense?

Thanks a lot for any help!

Hey please help I need only a short answer! O.o
