It does get quite cold... but it varies from year to year, and to tell the truth it's really beautiful in Poland during winter time. Russia's where the unbearable cold is, -20'C in winter sometimes...

Winter in Poland

How cold does it get? How long does it usually last?

hi, depends, which part of Poland, some places get -20 but thats not everyday, i would say around 0 to -10, and it last 3 months or more.

3 months, eh?

November to January?

Basically, what month does it normally begin to thaw?

Also, which parts of Poland have the harshest and longest cold periods of the winter?

ok maybe 4-5 months would be better, depending on the year, and the mountains would be the coldest areas.

Winter on the Baltic coast can also be quite tough, with strong, icy winds. The north-east (roughly the Warmia and Mazury region) is not to be sneezed at either! ;-)

I am Indian

if you have lived in northern india then you will be used to snow and cold weather but other parts you will find it hard as it does get cold, there are certain areas that get colder then other but in general it is a cold time, lots of layers, gloves, socks - no sarees or shalwar kammez they wont do the trick in poland.... where abouts will you be going....

christmas in poland is really enjoyable its a great time to visit.

What kind of Anorack is preferable? My stay will be between 20th of december till 1st of Jan.

If I get down in airport, Do I feel an immediate cold? frost bite?

Poland also has snowmobiles, they are called "skuter śnieżny" but the trails there are not as well developed as in the US or Canada. They are very expensive and only a few have them. There are not enough open spaces in Poland to ride them but in Zakopane they are used by the ski patrol.
