Is Poland a popular tourist destination for Swedes?

Having met up with a number of Poles in Sweden when last there a few years back, I was gently curious if Poland is a well-known visiting spot for Swedish tourists.

To a point. Some people from Sweden visit GdaƄsk or Warsaw because booze etc is much cheaper and I've come across Swedes, Danes and Norwegians from time to time.

Thanks, jon. I'd suspected for some time that Poles were more than slightly interested in Sweden, but wasn't sure regarding vice-versa:-)
Any Swedes out there in Cyberland who wish to weigh in?

Unfortunately, the Swedes were usually completely drunk on the ferry to Poland so that they did not remember too many of their trips to Poland.

completely drunk

I've seen this. Off the plane and straight to the pub where they're delighted at how cheap vodka and cigs are.

Another unfair charactarization, Alien!
Indeed Poles, Aussies, Germans, above all, Dutch and Brits abroad, have an even greater reputation for inebriated behavior than the Swedes, or at least equal.

Why unfair?
Poles did not go to Sweden to get drunk, but to work.

Not unfair at all.
Scandinavians have the same love of alcohol as Brits,Germans and Dutch do, unfortunately for them, it is very expensive at home.
So when they visit countries like.Poland, they sometimes go a little bit bonkers.
Lyzko, you have a very poor understanding of Europeans and need to book some more holidays here and remove your blinkered American sunglasses!

Statistics indicate that Scandinavians drink less on average than both Poles and Brits.

PS - no surprise seeing Latvians and Lithuanians up in the tops, miserable assh0les...

Of course!
Because in their countries it is too expensive!

Are all Russians as ill.educated and dim as you?

They probably are, if they had been more intelligent they would never have invaded Ukraine.

Please keep to the topic of the thread

You're confirming my very point, Milo!
Poles are no less known for drunkenness than any other Europeans:-) Although for many years Swedes had such a reputation, to an extent when I was there too, much of the stories concerning boatloads of Swedes going over to Denmark for cheap booze, are largely a thing of the past.

I've traveled extensively throughout the Continent, and so kindly refrain from condescending remarks!

Yes, they want to see the country where most of their invaluable museum exhibits comes from.

If Sweden continues to be obstenate about it, Poland should do a Turkey negotiation.

We might withdraw out our consent for Sweden to join if they continue to refuse to deliver Polish national art back

I am afraid Sweden in NATO is worth much more for Poland than some artifacts from the past which are safe and available for everybody to see in Swedish museums.......

I don't think so, have you met many Swedes in your life? Those few in the military sure will put up a fight. But if it got invaded, I would be surprised if they even knew of the word partisan even exist

But if it got invaded,

...They got invaded and loved it. To hell with a little inconvenience like rapes of Swedish women.
On the repulsive scale, Swedes score the highest.

Although doubtless second to the Finns in terms of drunkenness!
Even Finns will ruefully admit that many compatriots can be vicious drunks, sad to say.

I've seen Swedes and Finns visiting Poland for cheap drinks, however despite being drunk, they were all friendly and fairly well behaved.

A few and only females. And only teachers.

if they even knew of the word partisan even exist

Hmmm..... don`t you think it is a little unfair to blame a nation for sth they have never needed in their history???
