Travel / Travel from Krakow to Sandomierz [7]

Defo travel for a day, not two. It's a nothing town, pretty and worth a visit but a day is enough. Maybe if you can get auto worth stopping in Zalipe on way or Krzyżtopór castle

Life / Tell me about Northeastern Poland [28]

Białystok looks nice, but is tiny and far away from everything, so if you get bored you are stuck.
Katowice is post-industrial but has potential in my opinion to be a great city, especially given the architecture in the centre and it's size/scale

Love / How do Polish men feel about gender equality? [753]

What is Gender Equality? Is it equal opportunities for all? In which case I am a fan, a very big fan.

Or is equality of outcomes, i.e. positive discrimination, Mao style struggle sessions and left wing hatred of men. in which case I am most definately not a fan.

Life / To Poles: some food for thought [31]

@Joker
Well one thing for sure, as much as I am no fan of PiS, if they cave into the EU on this rule of law nonsense, then where does it stop. No budget if you don't take in refugees, no budget if you don't bow down to Frau Merkel?

The end of national sovereignty is nigh.

Well done to the brits for having sense to get out of it.

Love / Polish women are the most beautiful in the world! [1718]

@Michel88
Problem in society is too much ''fat normalisation''. Like all these ''body positive'' Instagram posts telling people it's normal to be 100kg as a woman. People are killing themselves and society is too ''kind'' or sick to tell them otherwise.

@rozumiemnic
Everyone needs some fat. No one likes the bulimic look. But that doesn't make being a slack fatso acceptable. Having diabetes, heart disease and sweating like a pig when you run for a tram also isn't acceptable.

News / Poles say a big YES to our European Union [711]

Only a wh*re accepts money in exchange for violation of their most precious parts?
No money is worth loss of national sovereignty. Whilst I disagree with PiS on rule of law, separation of courts, media etc, this is a dangerous precedent. Once this is allowed it will never end and more and more powers will be ceded to Brussels.

Say no to the EU!

POLEXIT.

Love / Adultery- Is it ok for Polish women [41]

Polish people get married young, then realise they've missed out in the sleeping around stage. That's why there is so much adultery here.

In my experience women here cheat just as much as men.

Life / Polish Ice Hockey [17]

Polish ice hockey is lame, about the only time worth going is when the winner of league plays in European champions hockey league.

Best to cross border and go watch any of the eastern czech teams. Generally nice stadiums, decent crowds and great hockey standard.

Love / Adultery- Is it ok for Polish women [41]

@Amber
It's only recently that divorce is becoming acceptable. I know a lady in her 50's whose husband left her (after his affair) and she is completely ashamed, like somehow she wasn't a good wife. Times are changing though thankfully.

Hi all, I'm a keen photographer who recently moved to krakow from northern poland. I'm looking for some tips on good places where to go in surrounds for wildlife photography. Ideally within 1 hour in any direction. I drive so it's easy for me to travel.

Life / Polish Ice Hockey [17]

@Joker
Disagree, Ice hockey is really fast sport with huge tactical element to game. Also Golf I always thought the same, however I was lucky enough to be invited to the golf open in Carnoustie, Scotland. The one where harrington beat garcia in the playoff. Must admit that was where i realised i was wrong.

Yes you are right though on the kit, it's really expensive, Helmet, shoulder pads, padded shorts, elbow pads, gloves, leg guards, skates not to mention the stick. If you play at a decent level a pair of gloves alone won't get you much change out of $200.
