The central role of The Polish Balcony in Polish life :)

''Over the years I have come to appreciate the central role that the balcony plays in Polish life. If an Englishman's home is his castle, a Pole's balcony is his wild outdoors. These tiny patches of real estate suspended in thin air are the birthright of all Poles. No matter where you are, you can see the mountains and the lakes from a Polish balcony''.

The second-most basic function of the balcony is as an underwear display area. It is a legal requirement in Poland to display at least 50 percent of your underwear to your neighbours every seven days.

I have to agree with this. Balconies are often looked at here and they can have a major influence on the valuation of a property. I was shown some today by my wife's dad and he was explaining a significance that most Brits just wouldn't think about.

I remember checking out an apartment which had a huge balcony for grilling but it was overly communal. Another flat I looked at didn't even have enough room to smoke. The place I bought doesn't have one but it doesn't bother me too much as comfortable furniture will be inside :)
