I got an offer from a Polish company for about 7k zloty net, and I should be in Gdansk or a nearby city. Would that be enough to make an ok living for a foreigner and save some on the side, or it will. Be too hard for that?

And is this money for three experience in the IT field in the average range?

Some more information about your circumstances would help people answer your question.

For example, do you have a family to shpport? What of accommodation would you want,

It's almost double the median salary for that area, if you live modestly you should be able to save,

Thanks, Jon for mentioning that point I forgot to add it, I will be living by myself/with no family.
While I don't look for a fancy place, I just want a non-shared studio or apartment with basic utilities including internet. But I heard renting is getting harder and costing more.

Yes. Russia's illegal and unprovoked invasion of Ukraine has increased the population of Poland by several million in the space of a few months. This has put a strain on accommodation.

You should still be able to afford a comfortable studio though.

What Russia did is unaccounted for, I hope everything gets resolved outright.

I should be in Gdansk or a nearby city.

It would be a bit cheaper to rent in Gdynia which is easily commutable to Gdansk by train.

IT field in the average range?

Depends on your branch of IT.

Thanks, Atch, but I have been looking at the prices in Gdynia, but they are relatively higher.

You might find this helpful. It's pretty accurate.

I think you'll be OK as you have no family to support. The wages in Poland have increased over the years, but so as inflation.

Thank you Atch, I checked it out, it is very helpful.
Hey atlantic, so do you think it is livable but low or you think it is a good salary?
