How to ask questions at the Polish tourist information agency Posted by on Jun 8, 2017 in Phrases

Thanks to the energy and resiliency of its people, Poland has emerged as one of Europe’s greatest post-communist success stories.  Known mostly for the medieval architecture, hearty cuisine, and Jewish heritage, this small country on the Baltic Sea has risen above a bleak history to become a growing tourist destination. Where to go, what to do, where and what to eat, what is safe and what’s not? All these questions can be answered at tourist agencies!

So how do we exactly ask the right questions? Most places in Poland have staff that speaks English. But who wouldn’t like to take the conversation to the next step and ask theses questions in Polish?


Let’s see what we can put together…

we’re looking for accommodation – szukamy zakwaterowania

we need somewhere to stay – potrzebujemy miejsca, gdzie moglibyśmy się zatrzymać

do you have a list of …? – czy ma pan/pani listę …?

hotels – hoteli

campsites – kempingów

can you book accommodation for me? – czy może mi pan zarezerwować nocleg?

do you have a map of the city? – czy ma pan/pani plan miasta?

what’s the best way of getting around the city? – jak najlepiej poruszać się po mieście?

where can I rent a car? – gdzie mogę wynająć samochód?

are there any … on at the moment? – czy w chwili obecnej są jakieś …?

exhibitions – wystawy

cultural events – wydarzenia kulturalne

sporting events – wydarzenia sportowe

are there any …? – czy są jakieś …?

excursions – wycieczki

day trips – wycieczki jednodniowe

could you tell us what’s on at the …? – czy może nam pan/pani powiedzieć co jest obecnie grane w …?

cinema – kinie

theatre – teatrze

opera – operze

can I book tickets here? – czy mogę tu zarezerwować bilety?

do you have any brochures on local attractions? – czy ma pan/pani jakieś ulotki na temat miejscowych atrakcji?

My name is Kasia Scontsas. I grew near Lublin, Poland and moved to Warsaw to study International Business. I have passion for languages: any languages! Currently I live in New Hampshire. I enjoy skiing, kayaking, biking and paddle boarding. My husband speaks a little Polish, but our daughters are fluent in it! I wanted to make sure that they can communicate with their Polish relatives in our native language. Teaching them Polish since they were born was the best thing I could have given them! I have been writing about learning Polish language and culture for Transparent Language’s Polish Blog since 2010.
