    Polish cinema

    So you’re about to spend your Erasmus in Poland. A place, well let’s be honest, nobody knows a lot about. A great way to get to know the place, its culture and customs is to watch films. And you’re bound to find loads of the stereotypes in Polish cinema, but not...

    Pomidorówka - the student's life-saving soup from Poland

    This is an awfully simple recipe for one of the most emblematic Polish dishes in history! If you ask anyone what  pomidorówka is I am sure almost everyone will be taken instantly back to their childhood. You’ll see a serene smile on their faces, cause this is the...

    Pol'and'Rock or simply Woodstock!

    What?! Woodstock in Poland? I kid you not. There is a Woodstock festival in Poland. It was called Przystanek Woodstock, to be perfectly accurate (welcome to Poland! There are no easy names; everything has got to have those rustling sounds in it! ). To be even more...

    Poznań - the city that has to forgive me

    Wow! I can’t believe how nice this city is! This is literally what I’ve been saying to my friends each time I visited it in last few years. And there’s a good reason behind it. I USED TO HATE POZNAŃ! I always regarded it somehow snobbish, self-righteous and with...

    Piwo - a short guide to Polish beer

    Probably most of the people imagine Poland to be a pretty much vodka country. Which is not far from truth, as you can read here. However, we Poles are only people, not spirit-drinking, booze-binging shenanigans who have no mercy for their livers. No, very often we...

    Fat Bob Burger

    I’ve visited this place twice already but the truth is Fat Bob Burger had been with me for years before I set my foot in this tiny burger joint. It is thanks to my friend who studied at Poznań’s Politechnika* at that time. His genuine hobby was to know all the best...

    Lenkiewicz Cafe

    HOT POLISH SUMMER Yes! You’ve read it correct: there is such thing like a hot Polish summer! I mentioned it when I wrote about lakesides (which you can find here) but there is not always a chance to have a whole day getaway trip to chill by a jezioro. So what do real...

    Tatry Mountains

    Watch out there! I know that at first it seems irrelevant, but after you move in to Poland you’ll learn that the difference is crucial. It is essential to know when you’re heading for Tatra and when you’re heading for Tatry. I know, this can be confusing as you...

    Mleczny Bar

    We’re quite ashamed of them. No one really talks about them. I am sure that on a guided tour around any Polish city nobody will show you those. Nobody will invite you there. As if they never existed. Yet, these are some of the most unique food places I could think of....
