Good
1. Very good air quality. No smell of coal or trash burning. That was a big nuisance at the Baltic Sea.

2. Nearly all white people. I saw about 5 or 6 people over three days that look like they could be third world immigrants.

3. Seemed very safe. No threatening people. Motorists drove safely around pedestrians.

4. Surprsingly good level of English, but not German. However, Communication was easier in German in Miedzyzdroje.

Bad
1. Extreme consumerism. Tons of big shopping malls with American fast food everywhere and upscale stores. Despite being white, Szczecin does not have the vibe of a proud nationalist Polish town that I saw in other towns (like Bialystok). Plenty of tattoos, nose rings, man buns, blue hair, modern art, etc.

2. Prices not much lower than in Germany. I don't know how the Poles get by here given the salaries that people talk about on this forum.

3. Indoor areas of shops, hotels, and trains totally overheated. This is a problem in Germany too.

Maybe you can go there and load all the modern art into a dumpster then have an exhibition of degenerate art ?

Didn't see anything degenerate, just abstract nonsense like a child threw buckets of paint against a canvass.

Ah - lovely freedom, paint what you want and wear your hair how you want, get a tattoo if you want, march in a tight t shirt if you want - that is Poland in the 21st century

But they are happy they are in Central Europe now.

It's not in the end whether those people you saw were non-white or not, rather how socially, above all linguistically, integrated they are within the society in which they are living and presumably working!

Look at downtown Toronto:-)
