Yeah, crossing the street in France is like Russian roulette.
I am just talking about my personal experience, and Poland isn't so bad. In Warsaw i can take the metro at 12:00PM and nothing will happen to me. I can go to clubs and if i don't disturb other people, i won't get into fights (never happened to me).
In Spain i will probably get robbed on the metro, and i can't walk at 2 am alone. So why you say Warsaw is so unsafe? Because there are homophobic/anti-Semitic people? Those are everywhere, just that from what i see, in Poland most of those are on forums and there are just a few incidents, and where i lived crime was every day stuff.
I think people in Warsaw don't know what unsafe means. A bike stolen? Hardcore crime. I almost got stabbed from a guy who took my wallet and didn't think i had enough money with me, this was in broad daylight. Some people saw, nobody called the police or did anything. My car's glass was broken in the day in Spain because i left a half-packet of cigarettes on the seat, and another time because i left a nice jacket in my car. And more stories of things that happened to friends and myself. In some neighbourhoods, you have to be back home before the sun goes down, police won't even come to you if you are in trouble.
Really, from what i saw Warsaw is nothing to worry about. And a Jew and a black guy who get beaten up once every month, bikes and cars getting stolen doesn't mean the city is unsafe.
Why don't you stop this thread I don't think we need more foreigners in Poland.
Don't worry, im not here to take your jobs and your women, im working in a spanish company.
