Livin' la vida Erasmus!

Hi, everyone, I hope that you are doing well.

My friends and I will be participating in an Erasmus program in Poland, and we would like to know some things about this country, if you can help us, it would be great.

First of all, we would like to know the clothes that we have to wear, how is the weather over there?

Also we would like to know about the food, because of a friend is allergic to some food. Is it easy to find vegetarian restaurants for instance? What's the traditional dish there? And about the culture: we would like to know if people greet each other with a handshake? Is blowing your nose in public a lack of respect, for example?

And the last question, what is the currency there?

Thank you for your time.

Hello Noemi!

The weather in Poland is really changable. It depends on the season. In summer it is 20-30 degrees of Celsius, but winters are cold and often the temperature is below zero. So you should take light clothes, as well as jacket, blouse, sweater, etc.

There is a wide selection of dishes here. It's no problem with vegetarian food. In Krakow there are a lot of nice restaurants, especially in city center and district called "Kazimierz". There are also foreign cuisines. The most popular traditional dishes are dumplings (in Poland called "pierogi"), pork chop, sour cabbage with pieces of meat.

People greet by handshake mostly. Blowing your nose - it's better to do it quiet - it is more polite. 

Currency in Poland is Polish Zloty (PLN).

If you have some more questions, let me know, I will try to help you :)

Best regards,
