"Many people can't understand..." Poland Local Custom Tip by vysnaite

Poland Local Customs: 117 reviews and 107 photos

Many people can't understand why but I like Polish language, maybe it's because I understand it.

On the customs they hardly speak any other language and prefer if you speak at least some Polish... They look suspicious to people with darker skin, not because of rasism or anything like that, just those people are checked more carefully, and if they are comming with Lithuanians then completely (let's say so - not all Polish customs officers, love lithuanians, and vice versa). But I have never had problems with crossing Polish border (differently from Lithuanian one, where one 'officer' decided to put an eye on me and I had accident with him, only words, but .. anyway, I was crossing border 4 times that summer, two of them he was checking my passport, but second time I was with parents and he just got embaressed or somthing and kept his mouth shut, but it's not because he's lithuanian, but because he's a morron, a little bit 'off the land' pheeew.. even better after I wrote all this :)).

I wish I had his photo, I'd publish him here ;)
