By Joshua Wood, LPC

Last updated on Mar 06, 2024

Summary: Many expats and digital nomads move to Poland due to its low cost of living, excellent infrastructure, and vibrant culture. Additionally, Poland is a great place to live for those looking to explore Europe, as it is centrally located and has easy access to other countries. People looking to move to Poland can find a place to live by searching online for rental properties, or by using a real estate agent. The most popular cities for expats and digital nomads in Poland are Warsaw, Krakow, and Wroclaw, as they offer a wide range of activities and attractions.

What do I need to know before moving to Poland?

When we asked people what advice they would give someone preparing to move to Poland, they said:

"Expats should be aware that the official language of Poland is Polish, so it is important to learn some basic phrases before moving. It is also important to research the cost of living in Poland, as prices can vary significantly depending on the city. Additionally, expats should be aware that Poland is a predominantly Catholic country, so it is important to respect local customs and traditions. Finally, expats should be aware that the weather in Poland can be quite extreme, with cold winters and hot summers, so it is important to be prepared for all seasons," commented one expat who made the move to Poland.

"It depends where are you going to work. If you choose a district with a bad commute you can travel 2 hours to your work-place. I suggest close to the metro stations - Ursynow district is cheap, Zoliborz and Srodmiescie are quite expensive. Zoliborz is one of the locations with most parks in Warsaw," remarked one expat in Warsaw, Poland.
