It seems that the Krakow's folklore band we met in Krakow's Main Market Square (Rynek Glowny) liked USA, American tourists and US flag. Surely they were expecting a good tip but... generally (= majority but not all) Krakowers (is it correct name for citizens of Krakow) like the USA and Americans.

Poles - reffering to official public opinion researches - are the most pro-American nationality in Europe. Why?
Over 50% of Polish families living in Poland have at least one relative living in the USA - is this the only reason? Medium age people (is that me? :-) and older ones remember large help and strong support of the USA (people and US governments) with a fight against Soviet communism in 80'. Hmm... Western Europe gave a lot of help to Poland as well that time.

Review Helpfulness: 3 out of 5 stars
