I am living in Poland already.... more then a year.... Oh :)
NO ANY PROBLEMS or negative comments in my address during this time.
Or maybe i just do not pay attention to that ^)
Even opposit way :) very offten people (males) in busses or shops flirting with me after hearing my russian accent :)
So, in general situation isn't that bad or dramatic :)
Wel Natalilia i have had no experience with Poles in Russia or Russians in Poland, however if were talking about neighbours that may have a historical grudge or problem with one another i think i have that covered :) Scottish in England, French in England and even the Germans. Generally the story of these people are similar to yours, no problems at all, however there will always be the odd idiot who says or does something stupid to spoil their time in England.
feel free to ask me if You have any questions :)
I know i'm not wildrover but i've never really spoken to a Russian, although i've heard a lot about them and of course Russia itself, mainly though through history.
So would you say that Russian culture is similar to that of the Poles??
I would also like to know if you think Russia is as it claims to be, a democracy, or is it really the same old same old Russia that your parents and grandparents live/grew up in??
What took you to Poland??
I think that will do for now :)
