Yes, it's well above average - you should have no problems living and even saving a little on that. You will however pay quite a lot of tax.

Yes! You should be able to rent a small 1 bedroom for between 1300 - 1600 zloty close to the center. I used to pay 2000 zloty for a slightly larger one bedroom but it was also only a 2 minute walk from the Rynek. Plus extra costs you may be looking at 2000 altogether.

That leaves you with 4k left which is plenty even for Krakow.

I am not sure if this is a serious question or not........!?

Depends on your qualifications, your position and whether you are single or have a family to support. It could be quite good or very poor, depending. Give details.

6K/8k is a middle/upper middle income in most large cities in pl. Its enough for one person to live half decent but even then not saving much and avoiding certain luxuries.
