200% agreed but poles thinks it is,NEWBEES in the western world.
Oh, actually, it's the opposite. Poles are often convinced that there isn't anything much for tourists to see in Poland, especially for those from Western Europe, that Poland is poor, ugly, boring and dirty and people in Poland are horrible :))) I had the same mindset until I stumbled upon all those videos on YouTube of foreign tourists, travellers, people who moved to live in Poland (including from the US), refugees from Ukraine or even people just driving through Poland being often positively surprised and impressed with Poland and even Polish people :)
Poles are often shocked that other people like Poland, that they think it's beautiful, developed and... clean! (that's the most shocking part - clean! :O lol) We experience the greatest shock if someone actually wants to live here, because they like it in Poland and not for work or because they've met a Polish woman lol
I can jump on a jet in Detroit in February when it is minus -20* in Michigan
Johnny_reb, have you even ever been to Europe? You sound like one of those Russians who think that because Russia is so big, they have everything there already and they don't need to visit anywhere and see anything else. That's very narrow-minded, imho. For me such people are very boring people ;)
Btw, Polka music isn't Polish lol 🙄
I don't know what's your idea of "exciting". I think it may be different for different people. For example, lying on a beach and eating pork or chicken isn't my idea of "exciting". Nice and relaxing, sure, but not exactly "exciting". Additionally, I'd get bored of that pretty quickly. For me visiting Paris and seeing the Louvre was exciting. I could spent days in just the Louvre alone :)))
I researchedd Poland and found besides Auschwitz (...) Salt Mine and the War Museum by day four I would run out of places of interest
If that's all you found then you researched poorly or Europe is simply not your thing. From what I've noticed, Americans usually visit Europe for it's historic architecture and culture. I'm guessing that's probably not your cup of tea.
For example, here you have a video of two Swedish guys visiting Gdańsk on their way to another country and loving it (their English is great, btw - they talk almost like Americans!) - one of them is calling Gdańsk one of the hidden gems in Europe:
And the first comment I see under that video is from an American (I'm guessing):
The architecture in Europe is so amazing compared to the the US..."
