"Exchanging money" Poland Favorite Tip by silver_puma

Favorite thing: Not really relevant to this section - but I couldn't really find anywhere else to mention it & I thought it was important!

It has been quite tricky to exchange UK pounds before travelling to Poland as you have to order the currency in advance etc. I recommend just taking your sterling with you and exchanging it when you get there at one of the 'Kantor's. They offer a really excellent rate & don't charge commission like the banks - they want the pounds! Just make sure you check how much money they have handed over to you before walking away.

Fondest memory: The beauty of the mountains & how great the food is there! The ice cream parlours and bakerys are to die for. I was also surprised by how nice these eateries are to look at as well - some really interesting and contemporary decoration!
