yes, and that's also part of the reason why Poles get on well with Hungarians in spite of the latter not being Slavic. Poles and Hungarians are both susceptible to mood swings and quite impulsive, contrary to the Czechs. They are more "instinctive" as opposed to the more rational Czechs

I have only good experience with the Czech people so far and I've met quite a few, one of my friends is Czech, good engineer and hard working, we usually talk in Polish mixed with Czech.

Czechs are colder, that much is true. The culture is much, much more Germanic, which is why they started 1990 way ahead of Poland.

As for the language, it's just because of one thing - everything in Czech sounds like it's a diminutive to Polish speakers. The actual languages are pretty much identical when it comes to complexity :)

But in every day, I've never noticed any hostility to Poles. They can be quite standoffish (particularly in Prague), but it seems to apply to everyone equally, not just Poles. Poles are prone to taking everything personally though, and the Czech coldness might be perceived as a personal insult. For what it's worth, after 2 (or 3, depending on your viewpoint) invasions within 50 years in the 20th century, I wouldn't blame the Czechs for disliking Poles :D

As for language, it's easy to get by in Ostrava, Liberec and so on. It's more difficult in the south of the country, though.

Yes that's it absolutely. Husband says it sounds like baby talk and a bit comical to Polish ears.

Yes, but it is very positive fun. Who isn`t moved when they hear baby talk?
