We the foreigners are unfairly stereotypical towards the Polish.

I have been living here over a year now (i guess is an ideal time span to form an opinion about a place?). I vividly remember during my first week people, especially friends of my own race use to tell me never to go places alone. Always urging me to be extra careful when dealing with the Polish. Contrary to all the stories I have heard, none has ever happened to me.

I like going to parties alone, talking lonely walks deep in to the night, sitting in the parks alone at midnight (I have made a lot of drunk friends during this late night adventure). Isn't that which people will tell you to be wary of?

Of all the experiences people are recounting on here, seem to look like a complete farce to me. I think we ought to change our mentality towards them. Poland has never been an integrated community so we shouldn't expect them to change out of the blue. They have always been about 90 to 95% Polish in Poland.

Incorrect. There were less than 70% self-declared Poles in Poland in 1921.

Nah. Wroclaw is not Silesia.

The real Silesia is Zabrze, Bytom, and Katowice - in that order.
