It depends if you really do mean chav or maybe scally? There is a difference.

In Liverpool ( my home town ) there are plenty of scally's but no chavs.

But to answer you're question, I'd say that Manchester has more scally's and Birmingham has more chavs.

oh, and my favorite city is Gdansk, followed by Torun.

Gdansk because of the old town/beaches/forests/lakes close by and Torun cause it's small and has a nice old town/city centre.

I love Kraków, they play there in every hour a special music, which is called: "Hey now, Hey now" ;)

Tell me which one fits the description like this more:

- wears always a tracksuit (or at least tracksuit pants)
- wears always brand sport shoes
- has a very short hair
- has some macho tatoos
- looks shabby and dirty
- says a lot of k-word

so you like to sneer at those poorer than you? That says more about your own shortcomings than anything else.
Favourite Polish City?
Krakow in the autumn.

No, I don't sneer at poor people. I sneer at agressive young men who devastate bus stops and mug people if someone tell them to stop. In Poland they are called dresiarze and it's a subculture. It's common in Poland to poke fun on them. Have you heard a song by Big Cyc "Dres"?

It's common in Poland to poke fun on them.

I forgot about the notable book by Dorota Masłowska "White and Red".

Krakow is a favourite with me-to sit in the rynek drinking a Zywiec on a nice day watching life go by-and the beautiful girls!-is bliss.There is plenty to do there,day or night.However,it suffers from its popularity and in the summer the traffic there-and parking- is hell on earth.Almost as bad as Warsaw.I like to go upriver a few kms and walk along the river banks to the Monastery-much more peaceful-even better with female company.

Zakopane used to be a great place,but is now spoilt by heaving masses of tourists and commercialism.The Tatras are great though and there are still lovely villages if one searches them out.

I think my favourite relatively unspoiled town is Zamosc.It has a beautiful rynek surrounded by rather unique architecture and ofter in summer there are events going on in front of the town hall.Just outside the walled inner town is a nice park with lake which is really nice summer or winter.It even has red squirrels in the trees!

Somebody suggested the south-east of Poland-definitely! Although there are no cities.I suppose Sanok is the largest place but does not have much going for it apart from the open air skansen which is excellent.

All of Poland is great, some are just liked by some more than others. To each his own. It depends what you are looking for, Poland has it all.

a good bet is Kasprowy Wierch in Zakopane - it very often lies above the clouds and access is pretty easy with cable cars - the cables system and the cars have been modernized recently - unless there are high winds

Wroclaw because I was born and grew up there,I also have a soft spot for Lwow even though it's not Polish anymore.

If you are planning to visit S/E Poland I can advice you a strip of beatiful townlets between Żywiec and Lwow. Let's say along road nr 28. This is a huge area of the Medieval settelment by Głuchoniemcy. They were mostly German Saxons but supposedly also Swedish and Duth. They assimilated very quickly and became Poles but allegedly their look was recognazible even in XIX c (Wilamowice inhabitants didn't use Polish at home till 50'). They have built a lot of picturesque towns and developed a strong industry but they were crappy soldiers and shepherds. That's why Polish kings needed to initiate a big Vlach (Romanian) and Rutenian (Ukrainian) settelment in neighbouring Carpatians and plateau. They polonizated theirselves very quickly too and created a lot of knight's nests. I don't have to mention about numerous Jewish immigration from all Europe to Galicia, extensive business and trade development and the beginnings of Hassid movement.

But where to hell are Poles?

Not really so, I'm afraid. Typical small basement Krakow club, average music, nothing too special. Kind staff though, expect for the bouncers, which is not unusual in PL. Been there, seen it :)

Do you really mean parties, or do you mean a nightclub with paid admission and drinks that you buy?

Gdynia. It's small enough to make you feel you know your surroundings well. Has good number of tourists and foreigners to make you feel worldly enough. Poeple are friendlier then where I come from. Love the coffee shop culture there. The beach perhaps isn't the greatest but you're minutes away from Sopot by convenient transportation and can always go to Gdansk to have it all big. Love Świętojańska street; could go back and forth and riding trolejbusy is fan and quiet. Women dress up pretty, old folks are grounded. Best barber shop in Gdynia. HSW Gdynia. Beach volleyball summer every day. Cool dogs. Good manners. Could live there every summer for 2 months.

I like Opole quite a lot. Not overrun with tourists, and still interesting enough to spend a day.
