How do I meet people in Poland?

When we asked people living in Poland about club and activities where newcomers can meet others, they responded:

"University groups, take dance classes, play sports in the beach: soccer, volleyball, jogging, etc. Sports associations, cultural associations. Nature related: hiking, wall climbing, trekking... there is a lot to do on that matter here, Oliwa (church and park), the beach that is all boarding coastline from Gdynia to Sopot is nice. Summer is nice and hot and fresh (or not, very dry) always with an umbrella in your bag, please. Nice pubs in concentrated areas - not all over. Beside that, is all quiet. They don't have dancing, parades. But, there is a Heineken festival, summer concerts, and the teathers in Gdynia and Gdanks. But, they are mostly making efforts to present attractive and massive productions, for the size of the city they pull it out quite alright. Much more than that, mmmmm nope," said another retiree in Gdynia.

"Well thats a difficult one as the most difficult problem is the languge. So would recommend just getting stuck in. The Italian Polish society strangley enough made me many contacts, Plus now there is a Chamber of Commerce and Investemnt bureau who are able to help out with contacts. If you are single I would recommend one of the free dating sites just to meet people," commented one retiree living in Bydgoszcz, Poland.

"Attend the local village festivals, the bi-annual town hall meetings, and attend the local parish if you are Catholic," explained one retiree living in Siemiechow.
