recently joined the EU and become 'European' in the political sense of the word.
Joining the EU has NOTHING to do with being European. Poland was a European country long before the EU, about a thousand years. Poland was a european country before, during, and will be regardless of the eu.
And stop saying that poles are trying to leave the eu that is complete bs. Something like 80% of poles wish to remain in the eu. Only a tiny minority of poles are calling for a polexit. Poland will remain in the eu for the foreseeable future. There's many other countries like France or Czechy where there's far less support for remaining in eu.
There's many countries that are European by geography, culture, Christian heritage, lifestyle, etc that aren't eu nations. Being an EU member doesn't make one European. Just as if Turkey joined the eu it wouldn't make it a European country as it does not even lay in Europe nor does it have a European culture.
investors are beginning to get a bit nervous so be wary of acquiring too many assets in Poland.
Rofl So not true.... The level of FDI is constantly growing. Every week there's a new multi million or even billion dollar factory office or other facility that foreign companies are opening up.
They are new democracies and the vestiges of the old Soviet system still permeate much of the culture and mindset.
Among the older generations yes. Definitely not amongst youth. Poland hasn't been a commie country for 30 years. A huge chunk of the population never even experienced the commie system. Also about 1/4 To 1/3 of the population speaks English. Amongst younger people in citirs it's nearly everyone.
But it's not necessarily a bad thing. That leftover mindset and attitude is what has allowed Poland to not have a single, a big fat 0 terror attacks. France uk Belgium germany etc can't say that. Plus there's no such thing as no go zones, no thousands of people praying outside, no buses plastered with crap about subhan Allah and Ramadan, no ninja women - our women our drop dead gorgeous and show it off, and your wife wont have to worry about being sexually assaulted like in sweden or germany or other w European countries. I'll take vestiges of communism
Oh And also the economy is growing and regularly exceeds 4% which is far more than just about every w European country. At The same time unemployment is going down and wages going up. That may not matter to you as you'll live off a US income but should you or your wife decide to enter the workforce you'll find a decent job.
Europe's growth champion - Poland
