What is your favorite way to spend time off? How Poles spend their days off? Posted by on Jul 13, 2014 in Phrases, Places to visit

How do you like to spend your day off? Of course there are so many different ways to do it! Here is what I like to do on my day/evening/morning off (of course not all at once:)):

Read a book – czytać książkę

Watch a good movie – oglądać dobry/ciekawy film

Enjoy a cup of coffee on the deck – delektować się filiżanką kawy na tarasie

Go camping – wybrać się na kemping

Hiking in the mountains – wędrować po górach

Swim in the lake – pływać w jeziorze

Spend a day on the beach – spędzić dzień na plaży


My daughters playing on the beach

Go for a bike ride – wybrać się na przejażdżkę rowerową

Play games with my daughters – grać w gry z moimi córkami

Read books to my kids – czytać książki moim dzieciom

Try a new recipe with my daughter, who loves to cook – wypróbować nowy przepis z moją córką, która uwielbia gotować

Enjoy a glass of wine – delektować się lampką/kieliszkiem wina

Visit a museum – odwiedzić muzeum

Boat fishing – wędkowanie na łodzi

Travel – podróżować

Take a nap – zdrzemnąć się/uciąć sobie drzemkę

I’m sure that most of people in Poland like to do most of these things…If they plan longer vacation, they stay in Poland (visit the Baltic Sea, Tatry Mountains, Mazury lakes…or just sightseeing while visiting different cities). Sometimes they will choose a trip abroad. In the winter time popular countries to visit are: Italy, Austria, Switzerland (mostly because of great skiing there). In the summer months Italy, Spain, Greece, France…and many more countries!

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.
