Hello,

We are looking into potentially moving to Wroclaw, Poland for business, and I am looking for some information: I have 3 children 9,6 and 5 who do not know Polish we would need to enroll them in a school that taught in english but would teach them Polish, 2. With a family of 5 we will need a house big enough for all of us probably 5 bedroom or larger house to rent for a few years, what are the going rental rates, I haven't found much online, 3. What are somethings we should know before we would move?

Any help would be great Thanks.

five bedrooms is asking for a lot. they simply don't build 'em like that.

You can expect to pay in excess of 3500 PLN in the city for a house like that, more than likely up around the 4500 mark.

this is not what the op asked for, but it does give an idea of size and what one might expect.

A good idea is to give this company a contact: movetowroclaw.com/. They are very helpful to people who are moving to the city.

Merged: Wrocław - city of violence & xenophobia? Politicians write a letter...

[quote] "We can win the title of" impunity rudeness, xenophobia, hatred and violence " ... Local politicians to ask the President about the escalation of racist behaviour....Outrageous events of recent days - a racist attack on the family of Jose Torres and members of the National Rebirth of Polish nationalists' banners ... begs the question on whether Wroclaw's authorities should not protest and take decisive steps to prevent this type of occurrence? ...

Translation might have errors.

Thats in special neighbourhoods, but not everywhere. Poland cities are divided in 2 or 3 parts mostly.

1. Students, who think, they can change the world and who think, that all west countries are waiting for them and their "skills" .. foreign students, who live for free in the best hotels in the country and who can even study for free in Poland ...

2. hard working men, living in normal neigbourhoods, not much criminality or poornes, just a normal, typical European neighbourhood or inner city district.

3. A neighbourhood, mostly a deprived area full of young hools, ultras or hooltras, skinheads and racists .. or just dresiarze. It is dangerous to go into these neighbourhoods when it is dark, cause there is a big chance to get attacked, especially when you are a foreigner.

If some of the open-minded student Poles, who played in school in the gym class with girls badminton insetad of football with the boys, say that this is not true and that Poland is the centre of tolerance and everything is happy there ... then say, in which city you live, I will tell you the neigbourhoods and please go visit them at evening, you can also film it.

Every city got this areas, some more, some less.

Bytom Karb is one of these areas and there are more in Bytom.

I really wonder how you make this stuff up :D

Where? Name them.

Poznan. I'll film it tomorrow night. Name them.

Poznan Winogrady for example. And please no tomorrow, tommorow is Sunday .. go today at the evening and spend your time there. Try to get contact with some of the mates there, funny, open-minded guys I guess ... to students you could also go and start a conversation, going with them to a few pubs or clubs .. do the same with these guys. Tell them, you are a Brit or whatever you are. And please, dont forgett to film!!

haha yes its true once u get out of the inner city things start to look a bit grim, i had a bunch of 12 year old skins want to fight me cause i said i had no problem with muzini. and this was in Podgórze just south of kazimierz. delphiandomine\ will have no chance in this poznan slum neighbourhood, he will be lucky to get out there with a few bruises, sans his wallet.

Of course if he goes with his burly polish mates it might be a different story.

Of course he is going alone there, trying to find some new contacts. Showing us, that Poland is the safest and most tolerant country in the world!

Winogrady, dangerous?

It's a suburb full of Communist villas, hardly what one would call dangerous. You could at least name some proper areas in Poznan - or even better, streets.

Try to get contact with some of the mates there, funny, open-minded guys I guess ... to students you could also go and start a conversation, going with them to a few pubs or clubs .. do the same with these guys. Tell them, you are a Brit or whatever you are. And please, dont forgett to film!!

You're definitely an amusing one. Why would someone stick a camera in the face of any stranger?

And yes, I know some of these guys that you talk about. Never had a problem with them, perhaps because I don't go around badmouthing their country repeatedly and acting like a typical hysterical tourist. In fact, one of them lived in the UK for a while and has nothing but nice things to say about the place. And he keeps his pub open as long as we want to stay - top bloke.

haha yes its true once u get out of the inner city things start to look a bit grim,

Not really. Grim is London council estates or those absolutely horrific estates on the edge of Paris. Poland? Nothing grim here.

delphiandomine\ will have no chance in this poznan slum neighbourhood, he will be lucky to get out there with a few bruises, sans his wallet.

Hahahaha. I live here, you don't - and there are no such areas.

Then again, a typical wimpy foreigner would run away at the sight of a few dudes drinking beer.

Of course he is going alone there, trying to find some new contacts. Showing us, that Poland is the safest and most tolerant country in the world!

Because, you know, German women are so so safe in immigrant neighbourhoods, aren't they?

Which areas are these in Krakow?
I'm sure you'd say Nowa Huta, but I've been there twice Friday and Tuesday night after dark.

Podgorze I almost live in, that place is nothing close to Dangerous. Offcourse you can find danger everywhere you want, it all depends on your behavior!
