Why Do You Love Poland?

I went to the south of Poland in a rented car a few years ago. It was very nice because I could travel over the frontier and see a little of the Czech Republic. I must be honest and say that it was a great experience and I would like to go back yet one more time and see even more. I did not like Poland very much but the Czech Republic looked 'pretty cool'. The world is a big and interesting place so why detain yourself to just one rather dull corner of Europe? I say, go for it!

I love Poland for the following reasons:

The fact that the Poles fought the Nazis even though it was a losing battle, they still fought.
That solidarity helped bring an end to communism.
John Paul 2.
Chopin.
Polska kiełbasa.
The fact that with all the hostile enemies Poland still exists... Maybe a miracle.
I love underdogs... And Poland is definitely an underdog.
Lots of Catholics.
Polish Girls. At least the way they look.
Great and friendly service when I visited Krakow.

And many more reasons.

Cost of living
Prices of food and drink
Cost of land and building (although it's going to go up fast)
Summer weather
Watching it progress from grey abomination to a land where everyone has a mobile phone (over the last 15 years).
Castorama, OBI, TESCO, Auchan, REAL ;) (much bigger and better than UK)
My workshop (about as big as our UK house LOL)

atractive turist place. Ch

No, it is not a great tourist destination and never has been. I think it was always a con myself. Margaret Thatcher had the right idea and kept them out! So the silly Poles made the Brits get visas too for as long as we required the Poles to get visas here. However, the situation was quite different because all the Poles are not interested in culture, literature or history-they only want to work illegally! Why should all westerners pay for a silly visa and then, add insult to injury, they have to make official currency exchanges for each day of their stay in rat infected Poland. The Poles are not walking around London with cameras in their hands taking photos, rather they are serving up coffee in Costa Coffee for five pounds an hour! The situation is totally dissimilar and I think that now Poland is in the E.U they should agree to pay money back to the West for all the money they stole from genuine foreign guests. I am not anti Polish myself of course, but every time I see all these new roads and airports built with dirty money extracted from foreign guests and I want to explode. Hitler was probably right when regarding the Polish question.

The History of it.. and also the food ain't that bad... i Love it cuz it has 24/7 Electricity(ya Lebanon doesn't D:)

I Love Poland also cuz of the Dynamic European Weather it has... one day hot one day cold.. one day in the middle... I love Poland cuz there are Actual Rules that are Obeyed(god if u guys think Driving and the roads suck here.. then i'd invite u anyday to come see they do it in Lebanon=) )

I Love Poland cuz of the Friendly people(but there are still some Drunks that can be annoying that times.. i'd prefer British Drunks than Polish Drunks... more fun! ;D)

I Love Poland cuz of the technology... might not be the best in Europe but 10Mbps internet is more than i have ever had :P and the cheap phone calling

They are very two faced though. Friendly they may seem but try not to pay for their initial kindness and you will soon see another side to these so called friendly Poles.

I think you ment it as a joke but it really hurts me when someone writes something like that.

It's like saying "oh I wish Hitler were smarter so that he actually did invade Britain and made them all slaves for their anti-Hitlerism"

Your not funny

It is interesting to read the comments from the British public as to why they love Poland. The comments always seem to be superficial and very complimentary. It would be interesting to note the comments the Poles would have about England. Probably much more down to earth and practical 'I love England because I have a free council house in Slough and what's more, there is enough room for my builder's van as well as for my car off road. I love the free state schooling and the health care is second to none. My wife has dropped three children since we moved to England and the National Health Service has not charged us a single penny for all their hard work. Free schooling for the first eighteen years and free health provision from the cradle to the grave. What more could one ask for'. These naive English people want to visit Poland and try and depend on the Polish welfare state and see the reaction then. All this romantic nonsense about lovely fields and smiling folk-of course they smile, after all, you are there to spemd your money after opening up your wallet!

How would somebody called "LA Girl" be British?
Incidentally healthcare and schooling are also free in Poland, and probably a higher standard. Also Polish are generally workers not benefit claimants.
Additionaly it's not Polish who are gettng "free council houses", they are the wrong colour for that.
Don't call British "naive" maybe they're just being polite.
I personally have no illusions, Poland and GB are both shyte, just in different ways.
Have a nice day.

No, health care in Poland is very poor. That is why most people die in Poland before they are fifty. It is a well known fact that life expectancy is still falling in Poland. Life is very short in the country from both cancer and strokes. Strokes are caused by stress as well as the smoking.

You got a link to back up that claim? I don't dispute that the life expectancy is lower than many other countries, but "most people die before 50" is utter rubbish. (I also agree with you that the free healthcare available is poor).

I found a link here: stat.gov.pl/gus/5840_894_ENG_HTML.htm

The worst life expectancy voivodeship in Poland is £ódzkie (great, got a house in Zgierz, but only there a few weeks a year).

For males born now, the life expectancy is 69, for females it's 78.
For males of 45 the figure is 72 and for females 79.

So there is some credence to your comment about expectancy lowering, but your comment about most people dying below 50 is complete cobblers.

I love Poland because when I lived there, and it took a long time for me to settle, but when I did I made some great friends, who also took along time to become friends, they were suspicious of me and my motives, but they are great friends today. I have friends in Poland who would do anything for me and I for them. That is when you know you have a true friend.

Yes, but I have to make my comments flowery, otherwise nobody is going to maker a return comment. Mind you, some years ago, I have friends who lived in Gdansk and their house was located just across the street from the city's main grave yard. As there is nothing to do in Gdansk I would spend much time walking around it looking at the various graves. I was amazed at the number of dead young men lying there. Row after row of men in their forties, already much younger than I was at the time. It looked more like a military cemetery than an open town grave yard. It struck me then that there was obviously something really wrong with Poland and their life style.
