New members of the Poland forum, introduce yourself here – 2017

Hi Everyone! My name is Mark, I have recently moved to Łódź from Warsaw and I am orginally from Northern England.  I wish to meet new friends in this beautiful city to have conversations with, beers and food.  I speak English at a native fluent level and basic Polish which I am trying to improve.  I love travelling and live music.  I hope to hear from other members in the area soon :) Thanks for reading!

Hi Brittany,

My name is Beth and your message caught my eye  since I live in Kennesaw, GA!  I also have a Bach of Science degree in Education and taught for 5 years in public schools in New Jersey.  I'll be visiting Poland on 09/25 and will be travelling around the country for almost 3 weeks.  My desire has always been to live in Poland and teach there but I am assuming I do need a TEFL certificate?  How are things going for you since you began work there?  Do you have any advice?

Kind regards,

We are looking to move to Krakow in July and wanted to get any tips on best place to live with kids in Krakow. A company that can help us find a nice 3-4 bed house to rent and the best private primary school.

Also if there are any groups we can join to meet people and extend our social network. Look forward to comments.

Hey guys,

I am Ela, I am from South Africa, and moving back to Poland next year. I left Poland when I was a little girl and I can't wait to introduce my husband and two sons to the wonders of Europe, it's very different to South Africa.

We will probably be settling in Krakow, hoping to meet some new friends when we get there, as it can get lonely in a new country.

Have a fantastic day further.


Hello, All!

Thank you for this opportunity to introduce myself.

I am a world traveler and lover of culture and learning, having lived in France, Germany, the United States and China.

I am not about to hang up my traveling shoes: Poland is my next destination!

I plan to relocate to Szczecin in about 6 months and make use of the wondrous railway system to explore all of Poland, and the former East Bloc countries. Along the way I hope to meet amazing people and learn more about the history and culture of the nations I would like to visit.

Oh, the questions!

The logistics of relocating independently - not for work or because of family, can be staggering. To that end, I hope to talk with others who have taken this plunge and came out on the other side can help me figure out how to buy health insurance, find an apartment and navigate residence permit bureaucracy.

Can anyone help with this? Has anyone relocated to Szczecin recently? Would you share your experiences, please?

With wishes for a good day;

Hi IgaCreative, I need to know about the research opportunities in the university of life sciences,  particularly relevant to environmental science  or engineering.

Hi All!
My name is Joanna and I am Polish. Since I spent more than three years in Switzerland and two years in the US, I know very well how difficult it can be to move to a new country ;) I live in Warsaw now and would be happy to meet and talk if you want. I am a concert pianist and a piano teacher so if you or your kids are interested in piano lessons (starting from February or March), please let me know. I speak English and German (and Polish obviously). Here is my website: [link moderated]

Happy New Year!

nice to talk to you, but sorry i have no kids i am single. ;)

Hi Guys,

Happy New Year...!!!

My name is Elrico, and I'm an IT professional living in South Africa. I've only been to Ukraine once, for a few weeks, but that was enough to make me fall in love with Europe.

I'm looking to make a change of scenery, if you will, and would love to work and live in Poland. Do any of you perhaps know what the best cities in Poland is to get a Job in IT, as I would really like to continue my career abroad. What qualifications would I need, e.g. Diploma, Degree, Microsoft Certifications?
Also are there any South Africans in Poland, I could get in contact with?

I'm looking forward to hearing from you guys.

Hi Ash,

Sorry for my late reply...was travelling with work.

Thank you for your greeting nice to hear


Hi Jia,

I know Malaysia very well especially Penang, Johor Baru and of course KL.

With moving from Malaysia it is a big step especially as far as the temperature is concerned.

I wish you all the very best with your move and I am sure many people on Expat as well as myself will be happy to help you settle.

I am generalising but the vast majority of polish people are friendly at the core but need to get to know you first, over time they open up and are very welcoming.

Good Luck..and bring a coat


I am the citizen of Nepal.I am in processing to come there in polland in working please guide me.

Hi Guys & Galls! I just recently moved to Krakow and it'd be great to find some other expats/ locals to hang out with, so if you have any suggestions id'd be all ears :)

I heard alot that Warsaw is the center of everything. Fortunately your career is easier to find job abroad. Go fight for it.
For me, I am all time working as the auditor and tax consultant in the professional firm hahaha in Thailand it is easy to find job. but when seeing me from Polish recruiter, it is so hard. :(

Hello, Everyone!

I am a freelance writer with a steady gig (going on a year) who earns enough to live in Poland's economy.

The question is: is this type of work considered 'work' under the EU's and Poland's laws, so that I could get a residence permit?

I would really appreciate your input on this most vital question.

Looking forward to hearing from you!
