What do I need to know about living in Bydgoszcz?

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

"Before retiring in Bydgoszcz, expats should familiarize themselves with the local language, Polish, as it is the primary language spoken in the city. Additionally, expats should research the cost of living in Bydgoszcz, as well as the availability of healthcare and other services. It is also important to research the local culture and customs, as well as the climate and weather in the area. Finally, expats should consider the availability of transportation, as well as the safety and security of the city," commented one expat who made the move to Bydgoszcz.

"Well coincidently one just did, from Dubai, first you need to generate an income, this is a doddle as you can teach English conversation very easily, next you need to learn Polish and the culture as without you will have a very hard time. I took the easy route and have a Polish lady partner who did not speak any English but was a teacher to 'adults with learning difficulties' which is my category," remarked one expat living in Bydgoszcz, Poland.
