Costs of living Warsaw vs the provinces

I know that people are always telling that the costs of daily living are in Warsaw (where I live) much higher as in the provinces. I am currently on holidays in Dolny-Śląśk and the prices here are not that different in the shops from Warsaw. Anyway, I cannot believe that for example Lidl and Carrefour have different prices for every region in Poland. Also, the utility rates (gas, water, electricity, internet) are I think basically the same everywhere in Poland. What makes a difference though I think is housing. And of course that is a big part of the household budget.

If the cost of renting or building a premise in Warsaw is more expensive than Radom, then of course the prices will be higher also the salaries are higher in Warsaw than the provincial towns. All the large internationals work on a flat profit basis and it is per unit, not flat rate.

1500 to 2000 PLN, including building association fees and all utilities except internet. Maybe a little more, depending on what you mean by decent.

1500 to 2000 PLN,

The former price (or less) out in the suburbs depending on whether it's a good or bad area, 1800-2000 in the centre.

With an agent yeah :) If you would want to do it on your own I would suggest gumtree.pl problem is the site is in Polish.

2. Is it possible to get a job to get for a foreigner in Poland ?

Legally, Yes,If you have a residence card. Yes it is easy but it involves a lot of paperwork.

3. Is it "easy" to open bank account in Poland for foreigner ?

Yup! Just remember to take your passport with you :)
