Shop till you drop in Poland Posted by on Jun 18, 2017 in Vocabulary

From large malls selling the latest fashion to small bakeries and crafts people directly retailing their lace to the public, this is an excellent land to find bargains and unique, handmade objects that will fit in your suitcase. Enjoy both aspects of Polish culture when hunting for things to buy like lace and beautifully carved amber jewelry.

About the Author: Kasia

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.
