so why now?
You just answered your own question quite well:
now have to bail the banks out with their tax money.
I don't know where youz are all getting these ideas, a guy is just asking about banks in Poland. Apart from that we don't know if he wants to keep it in a bank for the interest rate or if he rode the property market wave.
All I know is he asked a question and just glancing at his threads he intends to move here, so it's probably a precautionary question.
Are the banks in Poland safe? In my opinion I think they are.
I was looking for an artical I read about the way dividends and deposits can't be taken out of Poland. I can't remember the ins and outs of it but basically if as an example, Millennium bank in other countries go bust, they can't send money from a Polish branch to "save it". Again I am unsure of the details and I don't want to misinform btu perhaps someone else knows?
