I would like to ask you...
what is your first association when you think about Polish culture/customs?

I mean not exactly places or people but the first item, for example: Torun gingerbread, Koniakow serviette or any other thing?
I`d appreciate your answers :)

Gingerbread is generally Hansa thing, so rather German than Polish. Only in Poland it's connected with ToruĊ„.

Not true. There is also Czech gingerbread from Pardubice. So there. ;-)

As a resident, there are too many to mention - but as a previously living in the UK Brit ... it would have to be the cars, OMG the cars! Until Soildarity I dont think most of us had heard of anything Polish except the cars.
