This explanation needs to be clarified as it sounds as if moving to Poland would be like moving to Uganda under Idi Amin.
I've been living in Katowice for nearly 2 years and have to say that living here has been a very nice experience. The country itself has its own issues like any other, but in overall, the quality of life is very good, despite what the Poles say :)
@Cletter, please tell us how much money are you being offered in Polish Złotys, as this is the currency that this country uses.
As many people said in this post, there's a bunch of posts within this forum where you can find info about cost of living, but very quickly I will tell you the following:
- Rent: between 1300 to 2200 (depending how far are you from City Centre)
- Food for 2 people: 1000zl
- Media (Services): 150-220zl
- Internet 30MB: 59zl
- Cellphone (PLAY): From 9zl to 21zl depending on the plan
- One way bus ticket: 3,20zl
I would strongly recommend that don't accept any salary below 8000zl netto (after deductions - which is around 30-32%).
For less than that, it's not worth coming here unless you're leaving a very bad country.
Hope this helps.
