Peter pill Travelers Mark here with [walter] [sterling] today. We’re the main square here in Krakow Poland beautiful cities Definitely worth checking out and today We have for you are the [10] things that Shocked tourists when they come here to poland and the first thing that shocked people when they come to poland is The Polish Faith the Polish look when you come here, you’ll notice that people walk around Like this just there’s no motion. It’s not happy it’s not [sad]. It’s just neutral It’s funny because you [see] it anywhere looking the train station you going out to eat you’re going to the stores You’re going all over the place. They just have the same look Okay, it’s like wait a minute kitchen Be happy or sad [or] something up they have it’s like dead on look which works really well because you’ll see the women here are Gorgeous okay, and when you see them longer. Oh, they’re just preparing for their supermodel career because when you’re on the Catwalk You don’t show any emotion so they actually works really well, but it is kind of funny How the people you know you do have this? Look, and that’s the first thing I shock people also kind of going along with the people you might be shocked at look the [polls] are not like the jokes you heard as a Kid they’re not done. They’re not alcoholic stuff like that. You don’t have that. I mean. Yes there are but that’s everywhere It’s not more or less than you get another country so that also kind of [shocked] the people they come here cuz I’m you saw Those Polish jokes where what is it for Polish people, and how do they don’t move the bed or something? You don’t have that here the second thing that will shock you when you come here also deals with the polish people are how catholic and how religious the people are I mean I remember going on the buses and Lovely and he’s like punk rock guys are on the in there and and they go by a church and they all do the sign Of the cross I’m like whoa. [I] didn’t expect that people here in poland are very religious and the churches this is st. Mary honestly the first time I walked in there 20 years ago I would just draw drop [wow] the booths are all blue altar the blue steel and everything It’s just amazing and the churches around the country are gorgeous, and they’re actually building more churches here. You know other countries They’re turning churches into apartments and hotels in bars here people still go to church They still do believe and you do have a very religious conservative feel when the people are here Which is kind of a different thing [and] you go and when you go in the churches? That’s the real thing [about] it You really see the beauty of the churches the ones that have them been destroyed during the war that Maybe they’ve been rebuilt but like here and other ones you really go and just see the majestic beauty of the churches here So do take the chance to go into the churches don’t just go oh, it’s another church Go in and check it out that kind of leads into the third thing [that’ll] shock you when you come to poland It’s how much poland was destroyed during the second world war I mean, Krakow was lucky didn’t really get destroyed during the war But a lot [of] the other cities were just leveled for example Warsaw when you go there You’ll go see the uprising [museum] and realize that everything old and Cracow is actually younger than top of your dad Because they had to rebuild it all after the war because [it] got leveled by the nazis and you’ll see that and you go around That’s why you’ll see the [communist] architecture and the big square long rectangle buildings and stuff like that Because there was nothing there It was all destroyed so they had to rebuild and when you really see the level of destruction Throughout the country and how much they’ve come back and built new stuff You’ll be very proud [of] the people and that’s what’s really cool about it now the fourth thing [is] Gonna Shock you [anna] come to Poland is how completely incomprehensible and illegible the polish language is look if you don’t speak Polish [it’s] okay the locals know you don’t speak polish [also] try to think polish with you, but oh Just to one of those languages you’re listing at the train station. You’re like. Yeah, I got nothing yeah, I don’t know it’s City I’m going to it is [a] very tough language It’s very hard to pronounce like how do you say? Prz in a row and there’s like a hat and there’s an L with a line through it Is that a zero well? What is that you do get pretty confused when you are here? And it is kind of shocking that you can’t even make out some of the stuff now We are developing better for tourism so you will have a lot of you know English menus and stuff like that But it is a really good idea to know some polish before you come like [Julia]. Which is like Thank you for the steam is please things like that because it really get those people to go from You say not pure protein oh Yes, they polish, and they really open up then okay The first thing [that] might shock you is your eating experience here the [poles] really love their potatoes And their cabbage and even if it’s not on the menu like it might tell it to cutlet [night] It’ll come with Cabbage and potatoes here I go [ah] I’ll have [the] port of the pork knuckle and said oh it comes of pork and calves what? I’ll just have the rolls oh cabbage roll, okay Look, you’re going to have a lot of cabbage. You’re Gonna Have a lot [of] potatoes when you are here and there are some pretty good foods like the pierogi You’re going to have that when you’re here I might actually like the meat when I was here too in the potatoes good show the potatoes [but] [it’s] all the time with the perfect cabbage of the potatoes again and again and again. That’s why yesterday I just got the cabbage rolls I’m like look because that I know I’m getting the cabbage Haha, but it came with a side of mashed potatoes And I just liked it laughs okay also kind of interesting is they really love their tea here, too Now the sixth thing that might shock you as a tourist is You notice there’s not very many tourists now in Cracow you do get about ten million tourists a year I mean, this is a very popular place because it’s gorgeous, and I’ll talk about that towards the end But honestly there’s not a lot of tourists actually come to poland and so when you go around you really are kind of a special Tourist because you are actually here you might get people going Why are you luling and wiring? Whoosh? Why are you here? You know [some] places like cracow it’s obvious You know we go around and there’s just so few tourists out there that you’re like Hey
I can kick back relax And do [ok] and what kind of [leave] thought of that is our next shock is how Cheap it is here because there’s not a lot [of] [tours] driving up the prices It’s nice because you can have a very affordable vacation here in poland rooms Accommodation food drink making merry all kinds of stuff And you’ll see a lot of people come to like krakauer Warsaw to go have a party weekend and stuff like that because you really can your money goes a lot farther here than other places And that’s what’s really cool now the next thing. It’s going to shock when you are here is the amount of natural beauty and space In poland look it’s the huge countries are the biggest countries in Europe and the thing is you’re going to be going between these different Towns, [but] it was on a bus or a train things like that not super fast razor fast enough trains And you’re going to run and it’s just Amazing how big the [crush] [me] is but also the natural beauty you see when you go through there And what’s nice is when you go through and you can go if you’re in the [north] you’re going to get on okay? Well, that’s one right there drock alan and ganache on my [food] favorites [yup] [and] ganache You come down a bit you go over the [missourian] legs and see the castle. That’s right by there the [montmartre] castle which is on the way towards there go to the lakes and enjoy that go to the coast in [the] north in this south you’ve Got the Tatras [mountains] and you go to Zakopane and stay there tons of Europeans Go there to Ski in the winter because yes, it’s beautiful And it’s cheap remember I said before but you have this [natural] beauty like wow this really is I Understand why they have all their tourism? Propaganda is about you know the natural beauty of poland because it really is beautiful having said that the next thing else shock you is how Amazing the town squares are here in poland yes here in Cracow You’ve got the the cloth hall over here the checkout. You’ve got the st.. Mary’s church over there You’ve got all these [things] inside you’ve got all these things to go and see and this is actually the largest town square and the European in Europe and it’s Amazing, but it’s not just here you go to Warsaw the [Fuel/air] Old Town square They really built from scratch Rock club goes through the [old-time] [Lublin] combat GDansk the portrait of garage man You just walk around there see the neptune statue you like man. This is so cool. [and] you have all these beautiful Squares you have all these beautiful Buildings that have been rebuilt after the war or maybe they’re still there from before the war you Have that beauty that I’m not a lot of people think of because when they think of poland you’re thinking of you know It’s just it’s farmland and stuff like that and look there is just amazing places here in poland so it’s definitely worth checking out And the ten thing that might shock you we need to come to poland is the lack of service so remember that polish Faith This is your service It’s not the most attentive. It’s not the most friendly you’ll get your food. It’ll just take some [time] But just [no] homelessness are the most Service-oriented economy out there so you need to have some patience when you are when you are coming here and Probably, that’s the only thing that shocks you kind of in a bad way is really the service here isn’t the best But it’s getting better. [I] used [to] come here a lot in the early 2000s for work and compared to you know 2017 versus 2007 Or 2002 And it is it’s completely different anyway I hope that helps [you] know a few things that might shock you before you come to poland it is a great country to visit Because you’re one of the few tourists coming here to see something [real] [emitting] like right now So I will learn more Five things you love and hate about Warsaw what you should eat when you come here to poland check us on our website at Walters [worldcom] [where] us on Twitter Facebook Instagram [YouTube] and we really appreciate your life subscriptions and if you do subscribe to our [channel] We actually put out two travel videos every week every Wednesday and Saturday And we really appreciate those likes and it’s got comments the things that [shucks] you about poland who did that comment section below?
