Hi all from Nadia,
My husband and I are considering relocating to Warsaw. He's been offered a good job there, but we don't know what it's like to live in Poland as an expat.
We as a family are in a unique situation due to our multiethnic and multicultural background. I'm a Jew from Russia and my husband is half Indian from New York. We have a 5 year old daughter who goes to a Montessori School in Bethesda, Maryland. We have a lot of questions about living in Poland, but the most important ones are as follows:
1) Given out ethnic background (my husband and daughter's), would we be discriminated against? Is racism a problem in Poland like it is in Russia?
2) If anyone knows. What's the average price of a good private school (preferably Montessori) in Warsaw. We currently pay $20,000 per year and are wondering if we'd pay less there.
3) Is it possible to buy a new car in Germany and bring it to Poland? What are the expenses and time associated with it?
4) What's the best area in the center of Warsaw to live? We'd look for a luxury 3-bedroom apartment with a terrace in a historic district.
I'd appreciate any advice you can give.
Thanks in advance!
