I totally recommend Fitness Platinium. No BS with cancelling the contracts, you just do it online (already cancelled 4 or 5 times, when I was leaving Krakow), and very nice clubs, some of them with saunas.
amade1 1mo
MyFitnessPlace is not bad, but more disorganized on the contract part (like a typical chain gym). Their month-to-month plan was also relatively expensive.

Would be great to see you there if you could make it!
Hey, how are people enjoying Poland? I’m considering a stint there. Mostly interested in:
• openess/friendliness of the locals to foreigners
• atmosphere/culture
• weather
anyone have thoughts on Poznan?
I like Poland, but this is very much a personal preference thing. Poles are culturalmixology.com/relationship-building-are-you-a-peach-or-a-coconut/|coconuts, not peaches>, so a lot of people think they are unfriendly at first, especially in big cities. I find Poles are super friendly and loyal, and it’s a pleasure to be here once you’ve got some real friends.
One major caveat here, there’s a sizable minority here that’s actively hostile to certain groups (e.g. LGBT, muslims). If you are a straight white male from a western country you would likely never notice it without reading the news, but if you’re in one of those groups it can be dangerous.
There’s lots of culture here. It’s the land of Chopin so you can catch an amazing concert in a small intimate recital hall where he played at age 12. There are beautiful 18th century palaces like in Łazienki Park, many housing some incredible artwork. Copernicus was also a Pole and there’s a massive science center named after him.
In terms of weather, it’s a typical 4-season temperate zone climate. Because it’s at a pretty high latitude within the temperate zone, summers are pleasant and it rarely gets oppressively hot, but winters are quite cold and long. Spring and autumn are really colorful and marked by catholic holidays with traditions you may be familiar with like Easter and All-Saints day, as well as some with traditions you likely aren’t familiar with like Śmigus-Dyngus and Andrzejki.
Poznań is an unusual choice for a nomad, most of us go to Kraków. It’s a midsize city and has a lot of german influence because it was part of Germany until recently and it’s still pretty close to the border. It’s quite livable, but there’s not a lot of draw there for your average traveler. If you want a German influenced Polish city, most people would probably recommend Gdańsk instead, which has the Baltic sea and enough attractions to be a common holiday destination for Poles, particularly in summer, which is the best time to be in Poland.

It’s the second largest city in Poland and a former capital so it’s tons of history and the original architecture survived the war (unlike in other cities which were leveled by the germans). There are lots of hip cafes, bars, shops, etc, and a thriving art scene.
Warsaw is bigger and has slightly better / more expensive everything but the tradeoff is it’s got a corporate hustle vibe and is a little bit sterile because of the nazis flattening it and the soviets covering it in depressing housing blocks. All the other towns are a little bit too small for me.
This is really all personal preference. Some people wanna just go to Zakopane and chill in a tiny mountain resort with hiking and spas, no city life needed. Other people love the Warsaw hustle. I’m sure there’s someone out there who thinks Poznań is the best compromise. On nomadlist.com/poland|nomadlist for Poland>, the stats usually show Krakow #1 (it’s #2 right now but that’s probably a blip) and Poznań way lower down the list.

Great thread. Will visit Gdansk, Krakow, Warsaw in May. Are any of these cities also worth visiting Wroclaw, Lodz…anything else?
Also, easiest way to get to Baltics is just fly, right? No cross border train? I can’t do a 9hr Flixbus…

Thoughts on Wroclaw vs Krakow?
Wrocław and Łódź are worth visiting for a few days as a tourist but I wouldn't spend months working remotely from those cities as a nomad, for DNs I recommend Krakow, Warsaw, or Gdańsk.
There are trains to Lithuania, they're on pkp.pl, but I would fly. Those train lines are slow and you have to cross the Suwałki gap which is on high alert right now.
Wrocław vs Kraków I would pick Kraków. Just my personal opinion. A lot of nomads go. I had an Indian friend who got thrashed as a tourist in Wrocław so I had the impression it was conservative and backwards but it's also a university town and allegedly liberal. Never been there.
Great info oukovqpcwuxycf I’ll just be in Poland as a tourist so I will focus on flying to Baltics then and spending more time in Warsaw, Krakow, and Gdansk

We will come, now we are heading to our Airbnb. :)

Uki uki is a good ramen,
Hala mirowska or hala koszyki are food halls worth visit too,
Bakalarska Street is little hanoitown where you can have great korean bbq named Home BBQ.
Palac na wilanowie and its garden now is open with illuminations.
Niewidzialna wystawa is a museum where you can check how blind people live.
Centrum nauki kopernik is an interactive museum of science
konradd 14d
Also I recommend my neighbour burgers świeci z Bostonu :)
sathan 14d
Thanks! We are sitting in Uki Uki right now. :) Others looks great as well. We will be here for 2 weeks, so plenty of time. :)

Any recommendation for restaurants in Powiśle? Bonus points if it's frequently visit by locals
konradd 10d
There is a food hall in Elektrownia Powiśle, I like asian dumplings from pełną parą.
But if you want really polish experience you can check for some "bar mleczny". They are cheap places where you can eat all traditional polish foods but check the reviews before.
konradd 10d
Near Powiśle on Nowy Świat is a bar kawowy Piotruś. It's super local stuff where you can eat tatar and drink vodka 😋 it has PRL vibes
konradd 10d
I also like Bułkę przez bibułkę but it's more like breakfast restaurtant
Arriving in Krakow in about 1 hours, anyone has plans - or wants to make some?
