Why would you want to spend your time marinating in some Polish redneck village? The cities are where it's at, both for work and a social life.

Leave trying to find the 'real' Poland to someone like Michael Moran.

(I guess if the wife is from there you don't have much choice.) Wink

I did read. Sorry if 'redneck' offended you.

My point was that, although a high percentage of Polish people live in the villages, these are not very desirable places to live for most foreigners. The ethnocentric attitude of some living there is just one reason.

You could say the same thing about many small towns in the US, particularly in the South...

It was interesting to see the recent BBC/CNN programmes on racism in the part of Europe. Nazi salutes, hatred of Jews etc......Russian and Croatian teams being done for their fans' behaviour.......oh the east!

Redneck? I guess you could say Kielce.
Krakow would be the opposite.

The Poles are like everyone else. Xenophobic. It is part of the human condition. Xenophilia is actually quite rare.
