Would love to move to Poland

So forgive me for all this...I know many will probably say it's not a good idea...I realize not many Poles are welcoming to foreigners permanently residing in Poland but to be honest that's one reason I actually love Poland that they aren't like other countries and like to keep their culture and keep Poland for polish....I actually really love Poland I want to move there..would they accept me? I am from east Europe originally and live in the USA but hate this western culture and no am not Muslim (no offense to them just saying) but I would learn the polish language even though it's hard get a job there...I know Poland has problems but what country doesn't? And they don't put up with this **** that goes on here, so that's enough for me and every polish born person I've met here is just wonderful...I know there's rude people everywhere but every polish person I've met is so sweet and kind...I wouldn't try to change the polish ways..instead adapt to it please let me live in Poland :(

If you have money just appear in PL buy a flat but what about job? We do not accept people who don't speak Polish in work. There is no time for learning and patience. Majority of labour workers don't speak English. Their "managers" too. If you have idea how to earn only with English you can try.

Poland is a great place to live, IF, and only IF, you can find employment that enables you to get a well paid job. To do that, you have to be highly educated, qualified and experienced in skills that are highly sought after on the Polish job market. It also helps a lot if you speak the language well.

If cash is tight, than you'll find that life in Poland is a lot harsher than life in the States. No amount of ridiculous romantic daydreaming is going to make you feel better.

My advice is too school up so that you can find a better job in the States and earn enough to come to Poland for vacations. Or to school up in some field that is highly in demand in Poland and learn the language.

Right now, the grass looks greener on the other side of the fence, but I suspect that the problem lies more with you than with the country you're living in. Work on improving yourself and your qualifications instead of wasting time on silly fantasies.

Poland ain't no bed of roses.

We do not accept

You don't live in Poland yourself yet you try to decide who can and cannot live there?

you do see the hypocrisy of this statement don't you?

One time you are complaining about London and how hard things are there for jobseekers like you, then....

Thank you for the replies so far, I appreciate the input I'm not dead set on moving anywhere but...just considering what's out there for me...and Poland is one country I truly love...I want to visit there someday but I have heard a lot about the money situation about the salaries not being that great and you should have a high education...that is something to consider..thank you..

Well...good question That's why I said not dead set..but wanted opinions...I have met a lot of polish born people so that gives me an idea of what the people are like...I've seen Poland in many videos and tv shows and the cities look pretty...so I'm sure if I visited I would love it...

I'm not trying to decide. It isn't my point of view. It is information only that majority of Polish speaking workers do not accept non speakers in a workplace because they don't speak English and not going to learn English. It may help someone to decide visit or not visit Poland.

no because I can speak English a little. We as a mas (80% maybe) don't speak.
I'm a troll. I never concealed this. Don't take my post as my point of view.

You remind of the Poles here who think England is about Micheal Caine/James Bond movies, where the streets are paved with £20 notes etc. As someone who is very disenfranchised myself from Western Culture myself I often shake my head at such naivety.

Speaking of which - what would you say to an Eastern European whose idea of the US was Hollywood movies, Sex and the City/Two and a Half Men, and that even if you're an idiot you can just go on TV as a reality contestant and earn movie through interviews and appearances? Your eyebrows would hit the roof, I'm sure.

I too was enamoured with Polish culture (and the girls were a nice addition) - That's why I took interest here. I had already taken a somewhat keen interest in the language, and when I found out about the Tatry (I'm an avid mountaineer) my decision was set - To vacation here.

Even after making friends and meeting my (now ex) girlfriend during this vacation, and everything in general being amazing I still visited a further 3 times, and saved up 20k zloty in savings before I took the plunge 1 year later. You cannot and must not just pack and go without multiple visits and coming here with enough financial security to last a year unsupported by work.

And most importantly, you MUST accept the concept that life here will be more difficult. And you will probably have to be more frugal with spending. I was already frugal, and frankly my life was too easy and I wanted to exit my comfort zone so adjusting was not only easier than most people I presume but it has also been a welcoming process.

Serb5672 I hope the experience of this author can be of some use to you. It is always useful to know as much as possible from the history to the cuisine of the place before making the decision to permanently settle there.

There is also an Orthodox Christian community in Poland, what is interesting the very first book printed in Cyrillic script was in 1491 by a printing press in Krakow.

The first printing press in Southeast Europe was in Cetinje, Crna Gora.
