it is a myth that you can go somewhere warmer than the Baltic seaside for the same price in high season

It certainly wasn't a myth last summer!

But still, I can't understand why anyone would go to the Baltic unless they live nearby. It's cold, the water is disgusting and it's overcrowded as hell.

Give me secluded Croatian beaches any day of the week.

Lack of opportunity to see the sea without flying. Poland doesn't have a large (or good) coastline. The beaches round the Tri-city can be fun since they're city beaches lagrely however they're still full of people and the sea isn't good to go in.

I had a weekend in Kołobrzeg (very Teutonic in appearance) a few years ago. It is a strange place. Some decent bars and restaurants, but otherwise very sub-Bridlington. Sort of Skegness with pine trees.

For a holiday or a weekend break, inland is better. I prefer Świętokrzyskie for trips.

That's more or less how I'd describe most of the coastal resorts, only without decent pubs and without arcades filled with dodgy geezers.

I've been once to Darłowo and it was a total waste of time. Overcrowded, smelly and with nothing redeeming about it whatsover. Fortunately, I was paid to be there and do almost nothing for 2 weeks, so it wasn't so bad ;)

Inland is definitely far better, especially if you venture off the beaten path. I had a nice few days up near Wildrover's old neck of the woods not that long ago, and it was fantastic - empty, peaceful and quiet.

Yes. But .....

cold - yes, that is why we never booked in advance but always went last minute during hot spells.
water- no problem with it. It is green, one of my fav colours. And smells so nice. Yes, it is colder than elsewhere but it never bothered me. The water in the swimming pool also feels cold when you enter.

overcrowded - yes, but I know deserted places too. See below - that amazing beach was always so empty during the hottest days.

Russians likes Poles, while English aren't popular among Russians.

Now, as much as Russian love can be fatal, dislike can be truly lethal.

Yes Poland is nice and peoples too but now peoples must pay rain tax. :-) Thats true. Citizens must pay tax for free. For rain. Big roof, big tax. Small roof small tax. What else? Next tax from electricity.
