I don't have a good reason but I seem to hate the french

This was a classic statement. Hating is a strong emotion. It should be sth that really gets your goat.

I think the Poles tend to like the Magyars. The Hungarians are an enigmatic people that Poles show goodwill towards. There were many Poles in Budapest when I was there.

The Hungarians are truly a fascinating people!

There was a thread about this Cheery. Look in the Search function.

I know that the Japanese speak well of the Polish and Japan is a major attraction for many Poles.

Look it up.

Sorry, that was the English imperative which doesn't sound so polite, I apologise. In Polish, it's normal. I try to teach Poles to say 'prosze' afterwards but I'm met with a steely gaze.

Why? Poles don't care for spaghetti, kluski are much tastier.
Not to mention the two foods above. Yummy.

Serbia only 29% ???

It's the media of Polish democracy and freedom of speech.

Russia is on the top of the most liked... I'm sure Poles like us subconciously. :)

Everybody likes the Italians. They'd probably be number one on an American list too.

Americans wouldn't have any idea why they like Italians....

So, Turks are one of the the less liked nations acoording to this ranking.

We Turks have to reevaluate our opinions about Polish people which is very positive :)

Now this is LOL...............yet another EU country who refused your people entry to their country to work, plus there have been numerous articles about those who went illegally being abused, held against their will, not being paid and deprived of their belongings whilst there???!!!

PS I love Italy.......:)

Having visited Poland recently for the first time, I was positively surprised to see and experience what kind of country we have across the sea: it's a shame ages old connections between many of the nations around the Baltic Sea were reduced to minimal for many decades that followed WWII and it's aftermath, and how those parts of Europe become less known to many of us who are close to our 40's or 50's. The countries around the Baltic look familiar enough to provide a feeling of being on known ground (thinking about the nature, the genuinely 4-season climate and so on), but simultaneously there are enough interesting differences to make your excursion the extra thrill compared to a trip in the home country. There's also the common history of being in between the East and the West. I wish I have another opportunity to visit Poland in in not so distant future.

It's obviously because of the Roman Catholic/Vatican connection.

I see that Israel's not up there. Sadly, Poland looks like she's moving toward a little Anti Semitism--and the Jews have loved Polinyah for centuries, even a millennium.

...and whyy

And Israel? Damn. We've been too good to Poland.

In some cases, yes. However I, as one of the teenagers living in Poland, don't think that people around my age are antisemitic. I think that teachers try to teach us about the Jewish people, about the peaceful times, and many things about less peaceful things, like WWII. We even had a school trip to Auschwitz to see all these horrible things that happened to BOTH Polish people and Jewish people. Also, some of my friends from school are Jewish. One girl from my class is Jewish, but everyone doesn't care about that at all! Actually she is like a sun of our class. She is very ambitious, self-confident, everyone loves her. And she has never tried to hide her heritage, because she knew it doesn't matter for us.

Oh, I almost forgot my best friend is Jewish. She sometimes teaches me Hebrew, but apparently I'm not talented :/
