Poland has less sunshine than the UK and Holland?

Warsaw is listed as having less sunshine than Amsterdam and many other Dutch cities in winter, how's that possible?

That's why Poland should contribute more CO2 to promote global warming, as it is known that high temps turn clouds into vapor.

Isn't Lwow like the sunniest (ex) Polish city? Currently Rzeszow and Lublin are among the sunniest (1700 h of sunshine yearly). Krakow only gets 1300, less than Warsaw even but Eastern cities are all over 1400.

Funny but I have never been interested in such issues. Shame on me.

It is important. Krakow is beautiful but the cloudy weather would suck for people with SAD. Sun is life.

It's one of the reasons I left Britain for Poland , Loads of fun in the sun.

Ah I hope all Poles agree in that list as the yearly sunshine hours maps differ for Poland. Some have Tarnow listed as sunny, others (like Wiki) claim it's marginally sunnier than Krakow.

But still not as sunny as Kiev (1900) and Odessa (2200). So, if you like Sun, move there.

Yeah but Polish economy is better and it's in the EU, so I'm considering Lublin or Rzeszow. ;)

Many countries in EU have more Sun than Poland. For example Bratislava - 2038, Budapest - 1988, Zagreb - 1888, Dubrovnik - 2670. This is if you need Slavic or Eastern European (by culture) countries.

Yes but they get way too hot (for me in the summer). Last time I went to Bratislava it was 36 C, way more than Sofia. So I'm looking mainly to Polska. Too bad every map says completely different things about which are the Polish towns with the most sunshine yearly. They only agree that Krakow has very low sunshine hours, lower than nearby Katowice and Tarnow.

That is why there are vineyards around Odessa (Szabo) while not so many in Poland.

If you come from Bulgaria, you should be used to high temps.

No, I got a heat stroke yesterday as I spent the whole day outside. It was 32 C and I avoided direct sun as much as possible and wore a hat but still. I dislike temps above 25, and dread 30+. I basically avoid going out between 12:00 and 19:00 in summer.

Oh, I see. That is interesting,. Are you a native Bulgarian or a new comer from colder countries, e.g., Finland?

A native Bulgarian with Graves disease (therefore colder climates are more suitable).
