Life / Why are Poles always so miserable? Why do they never smile? [512]

Yes. I feel exactly the same. After living for a few years abroad, I moved back to Poland over 6 months ago and still can't get used to this mentality. I thought it would be easier because after all, this is my home country and I've spent most of my life here.. but people arguing about small things, on trams, in shops and low standard of customer service - it is kind of bothering me.

Travel / Social Culture - Confused - good place in Warsaw to make new friends [19]


Yeah, I understand where you're coming from. I'm experiencing culture shock myself but the funny thing is I'm Polish:). I've spent the last few years living abroad though and have been back here in Poland for two months now. I am still surprised by the experience of culture shock in my home country. I wonder if it will get any easier :).

Travel / A short trip to Krakow. Inexpensive, cultural, historic, with lots of nice women? [5]

Krakow is indeed a nice city for a visitor- it has a lot of historical sites ready for a tourist to explore as well as some good facilities (restaurants, hotels etc). The thing I like about it that is quite compact- most of the sites you might be interested in are located near the main market square (Rynek) - just grab a map and you can walk for a day or two to have a feel of the city. Not sure about the "women looking to pick up guys" notion and *where you got this idea from* but I will just ignore it for now :).
