Hi,

I'm traveling around Poland next year and I'm wondering if it's possible to send mail to a Polish Post Office so I can collect it while travelling around Poland?

Thanks for your help.

it's possible to send mail to a Polish Post Office

In theory however more people (especially from abroad) use a company called Mailboxes.

Can you give me a link for that company please? I've looked online but I can't find it... Thanks for your time.

mbe.pl/en/mailing-domiciliation

Most of the site is about their business services, however in the Polish language part they mention people who are travelling, students etc.

There's also this however I've not heard of them before: postbox24.pl/

Btw, the Polish Post Office (Poczta Polska) does offer a poste restante service, however you need to know the precise name/number of the individual post office (not just the town).

It's worth mentioning that the experience of people from abroad with Poczta Polska is almost universally negative. Aside from the sometimes very 'difficult' staff, theft of letters and parcels is so endemic that some other countries' postal services don't cooperate with them, and use private courier companies for international mail that needs to be delivered in Poland.
