Nah I don't have money to do that (I'm poor) and my interest is more in Europe in general than just Poland but I really am interested in the iron curtain in particular I guess.

Yea I have studied Soviet history in general. Nice topic in books, but depressing to travel to. So I assumed you were Polish but I am wrong. I guess Europe is an overall nice place. If you want a cheap trip to see nice beauty go to Switzerland.

Oh, that's interesting, dear Allison... are you really sure that italians and polski people are so much alike?

I'd like to start some short discussion (even in private way) about this topic.
I'm italian, of course... :-)
Take care.

Once I've seen a reality show about preparing weddings. And there was a couple an Italian guy was to marry a Slovakian girl. The cheif was told to prepare gołąbki according to bride's mother recipt. Gołąbki is a mice with rice rolled in cabbage leaf and (in Slovak version) it was baked. The cheif was worried that it won't be liked by italian guests so he invented that those gołąbki needs... a totato sauce dressing! (in Polish version gołąbki always are prepare with tomato dressing.. its even boild in tomato dressing). The Italian guest really liked gołąbki... so it seems they might like polish food ;)

"Why are the Italians and Polski so much alike?"

I have a question regarding the title... If Allison meant to combine English and Polish when asking the question wouldn't the proper question be "Why are the Italians and Polacy so much alike?" Or "Why are the Italian bambinas ;) and Polki so much alike? (if gender specific).

No critisism whatsoever but the word Polski in that question throws me off. What am I missing?

"Why are the Italian bambinas and Polki so much alike?

let's drop the "women comparing" topics, please....

That's not I meant, I thought that maybe she meant to say Polki as Polski doesn't feel right to me in the context of the question. I try not to participate in the numerous women bashing threads. Thought my question was pretty clear.

gołąbki

Same with Greece, it's a main dish here and is more or less called the same. I have also seen it in Spain, Germany, Austria, and Sweden...who knows where else.

They are not, noodles like pasta originate from China, but noodles are different shape and made from different ingredients.

Ramen, for example, come from China. Udon and soba are Japanese.

There are similarities : religion, family ties, sentimentality.

I could imagine that on emigration if these to nationalities meet they would get along and could be quite a few marriages between.

In our Italian lessons there's a lady from Poznań, an English teacher in Poland, and she often says that Poles have such an easy time pronouncing Italian as opposed to English, French or German. She gives the soft, yet mildly open Italian vowels as the main reason she sees for this, such in "Capri" or "caffe" etc.

Very funny statement. But fortunately, God love Poles and they do differ from Italians, in so many ways.

Italians appear often far more physically demonstrative, even the Northerners, in comparison with those Poles
I've encountered over the years, as well as in movies.

Poland by contrast has had an especially tragic and challenging history, whereas Italy, from Rome to the Renaissance up through the Risorgimento, has
been one of the most culturally blessed nations in Europe, perhaps the world, able to draw upon so much, frequently the envy of others, both in food as well as fashion and cinema, for example:-)

These differences have stamped the respective character of both countries, making Italians in general whom I met while traveling in
Italy far more naturally self-confident, able to easily publically withstand ridicule, being as the latter can always claim Ancient Rome,
Michelangelo, Bernini, Vivaldi, Verdi and so forth, whenever their nation has been impugned throughout the centuries.

In this way, Poland seems at times to resemble more Germany than their closest fellow Slavs, in their constant, indeed strident,
assertions of and need for the approval of their neighbors.

Comparing Italians to Poles is as ridiculous as comparing French to Brits,
Just daft.

Couldn't agree with ya more, Milo.

The thing that connects Italians and Poles is/was traditional Catholicism.

It is hard for me to find other similarities cause everything else is different, starting from the climate.

Alike? Much alike? Italians are ugly and hate Poles and Poles are nice and don`t hate Italians. Popes always make sure that Poles don`t hate Italians. In the meanwhile, Italian turn to Greek and say: ``Una faca, una rasa.`` And Greek love it to hear.
