Care to tell us any more?

Why does the name Olsztyn make me think "Olsztyn, Texas"?

Hello jumka,
And welcome to the Polish Forum.
It must be very cold now compared to what you are used to?.

I have friends in Olsztyn, they love it particularly in the summer as there is much to do when the weather is nice. The area that they live in has also been having quite a lot of money spent on the town and it is taking shape and looking good. May time should be just getting warmer. Hope you enjoy it.

Can anyone tell me if there are any area that should be avoided in Olsztyn or Warmia in general?

I've been in Olsztyn since October and it's been great. The people are nice, the area is pretty and it's got everything we need. Also, the public transportation is good and reliable.

I can't wait to be here during the spring/summer so we can enjoy all the lakes.

I think that Olsztyn is a place to be visited - maybe when I next holiday in Poland I will have to visit my friends and find out for myself - definately on the `places to go list`

I lived in Olsztyn for 7 years and I absolutely love the city! You can get everywhere on foot, it's green and peacefull, different from bigger cities. There is quite little old town, as Russians burnt it considering it as a German city. But it is still lovely. I really miss Sowa club, right under the castle, with great music especially on Fridays. Now I only see railway station ocasionally, on my way home :( I always felt there safe even walking alone by night so there no places to avoid.

information needed on OLSZTYN

Hi i am thinking of moving to Olsztyn, i hope someone can tell me of any info on Olsztyn, Is there are polish language school are there many other non polish speakers living there. Are there many jobs. Any advice would be greatly appericated

are there any polish language schools in olsztyn, where would my husband try for work he is polish

I think there are only one or two schools which offer Polish to foreigners. That being said, there might be work either through the university or privately. Companies like Michelin have a number of French and British workers who need teaching. The local library organisation also has a number of exchange volunteers who sometimes need classes.

There ar a number of language schools offering a variety of languages (French, German, Italian, Spanish, Japanese, Dutch, English, Russian etc).

The number of non-Polish is growing, so there would probably be a greater call for Polish classes.

For anyone asking about the weather in may, well it can be warm and sunny (can also be wet). What is certain is that the spring is there and the forsts are wonderful places.

Lived here for 6 years.

Hi, have you seen much changes in the last 6 years since you lived in olsztyn, is there somewhere i could check out any future development plans for the area?

we will build tunnels and erect monuments

Don't know about that... the big argument is whether to take down the Soviet war memorial

you should instead forcefully close down the McDonalds and KFC, that is correct way. then after make tunnels.
