4 thoughts on “Where is Poland?”

  1. Polish women are not exactly keen on meeting black men. That is a gross over generalization, especially given the current context. I don’t recommend flying there for matters of safety.

     
  2. Since ancient ages, Polish People are said to be honest, people-oriented, well cultured. If your intention is decent, no need to fear flying to Poland.
