People have to remmeber the different from average salary and median salary.

Average salary is always distorted by the high earners For example in the UK the average salary is supposedly £26,000. However the median salary is £14,000.

Yup. After reading this thread you shouldn't be surprised that so many people are fleeing to England.

And i think that the average salary in Warsaw is $30,000, right ?
Can someone tell me the average salary in Silesia, which is, if i remember well, the second richest region ?

Silesia isn't, but Katowice (together with Gdańsk) are on the first two places, Warsaw is only third (in recent statistics, Warsaw was always 1st before), anyway the differences are very small (like 50-100 złotych/month), and I think the average was about 2,900 zł gross/month for those 3 cities, so I'm not sure how 2983,98 zł can be average for the whole Poland, but probably I got the numbers wrong - they said those numbers in a recent TV news program and I wasn't really paying much attention :)

I don't think Silesia is that high. When the mining area was flourishing 20-30 years ago maybe but not now. Katowice attracts big businesses but, overall, Silesia is not such a wealthy region. The salaries are way below those in Krakow and Warsaw.

What is after all the average monthly gross salary in Krakow for 2008 until now? And what is the average amount of money that an individual has to pay for an apartment per month in Krakow? Please define your web - sources. It really helps.

For exmple, if someone earns 3,000 PLN gross per month, needs to rent an apartment can s/he live decent? And what if s/he earns 5,000 PLN groos per month, is s/he rich in Krakow?

Thank you for replying.

No. 3000 gross is 2000 net. Apartment costs 1500 a month plus the bills. So you end up with no money at all. 5000 is a different story.

That will do you fine in Krakow, during the summer i only work part time, and 3000 is easily enough to see me through each month. Average Teacher will earn about 3000 before making extra's through private lessons. You can live comfortable on 250 a week if you need too.

I was offered with 4800 zloty per month in Krakow, is it enough to have comfortable life? After all payments (1b flat and bills) should I feel as rich or poor? Thx
23 May 2008 #55
5000 is a different story.

Please tell me.

This article is full of overstatements and exaggeration. Polaks have and will always complain, that is our nature. I have a family in Poland that b-tch and moan how hard it is to live there, that nobody has money blah, blah blah, yet everybody is building houses and buying new cars.

Stop exaggerating, complaining and most importantly being jealous.
