Re: "'Brits' in Poland

"Still, Anna liked Britain, the idea to leave was mine. Poland is clearly on the launch pad to prosperity, while Britain will be lucky to escape a nasty little recession caused by the bursting of the property bubble. So we’ve cashed in our three-bed semi in South East London, and bought a former Bishop’s palace, built in 1660, with 50 or so rooms, a few kilometres from the Czech border and the Sudety mountains.

Our money could have bought us four bishop’s palaces. Some mispricing going on, I felt, in Poland’s and Britain’s property markets. "

I wonder if he'll be so happy when the konserwator zabytków turns up, and insists he restores it painstakingly, using old photographs, qualified craftspeople and original materials!

"Bronek, Gosia and the kids may not know it yet, but they are coming back to Poland next year."

This assumes they are not resourceful enough to find alternative work....

Re: "'Brits' in Poland

Changing track slightly...

I've been spending a bit of time in Warsaw recently and I have to say, it's made me the most homesick I've been for a long time. It's grown up to resemble the London I left more than 13 years ago.

I think I'd really like to live and work there now.

Re: "'Brits' in Poland

It really is the best place to live in Poland. It doesn't have the olde-worlde charm (& tourists) of Kraków, or the beaches of Trójmiasto, but everything else is here and right now there is a real buzz here.
