  • Hey this is MatSan

  • and welcome to our

  • today's topic is about

  • so last episode was only about Zakopane the mountains

  • so this time we decide to talk more generally,

  • why to choose Poland

  • if we have been to other places in the future

  • we will be making other videos about that

  • to promote Poland more

  • yes

  • why to choose Poland?

  • the first thing

  • is that Poland is such a special place

  • it's like a border between Eastern and Western

  • so

  • what is amazing in here you can see

  • so many different buildings

  • different styles, architechture

  • architecture is...weird even sometimes

  • you will see so many block of flats from Soviet Union time

  • very solid, stable brick

  • everywhere

  • and it's gonna be like modern building

  • or just a normal house

  • everything mixed together, it's really interesting

  • we can speculate

  • if it's beautiful or not

  • but at least it's interesting

  • also

  • Poland

  • is not really tha well known country

  • in Europe

  • if you tell someone

  • yea I have been to Germany, France

  • UK

  • Spain

  • so they will be like: yea, that's interesting

  • but if you tell them that

  • I actually have been to Poland

  • they will be like: Oh Poland

  • it's interesting

  • it was my initial reason to choose Poland

  • cuz not so many people are here

  • traveling here

  • but

  • it's the reason why I like it

  • it's like a mysterious mid-East European country

  • also about our cities around

  • depends on what do you like the most

  • so you can go to the west side of Poland or east side of Poland

  • on Eastern cities

  • architecture will be pretty more up to eastern side of Europe

  • and in western

  • you still gonna see more like German way of building

  • if you like skyscrapers

  • very modern architechture

  • for example, New York style

  • of course choose

  • Warsaw

  • basically whole these night life

  • expensive restaurant

  • every fancy things

  • if you like this kind of busy city feeling

  • so for sure come here

  • it has got

  • very big

  • post Soviet Union buildings here

  • my favorite

  • big Wisła river

  • that you can chill there as well

  • also Warsaw is amazing that

  • at the west side of Warsaw

  • you got more like beauro, office

  • business center

  • like The Wall Street

  • yea

  • and the eastern side

  • southern Praga, northern Praga

  • you can see

  • a totally city there

  • it's for living more

  • also feels more like for living, but there are lots of ...

  • older buildings

  • not like block of flats only

  • but also those older buildings, they look very special, very nice for photography

  • if it's about skyscrapers and modern buildings

  • choose Katowice

  • pretty interesting

  • but Katowice

  • is different

  • very Gothic, and looks like

  • calm, German architecture city

  • Gothic

  • and it's like a very cool style city

  • I like it a lot

  • other interesting cities are Kraków and Wrocław for sure

  • they are more like old style

  • like old town

  • those medieval time buildings

  • which is exactly my type of building

  • my type of city

  • she really falls in love with Wrocław

  • yea so much

  • cuz the atmosphere in the city is very...

  • chill

  • chill as well

  • I would say the city is very friendly to people around

  • the city get the balance of busy and chill

  • and also

  • it makes you feel so relaxing

  • Wrocław looks more like those Netherlands cities

  • because of lots of bridges

  • the water (river) there

  • looks very nice

  • also, bridges in Wrocław

  • they are more for human beings

  • because the one in Warszawa

  • they are very huge

  • but it's more for cars, for transportation

  • but, the riverside

  • in Warszawa is very interesting

  • lots of people are spending their free time there

  • about Wrocław, what I like

  • it is also a tourism city

  • but still

  • compares to Kraków

  • since everybody goes to Kraków

  • if you're traveling abroad (to Poland)

  • so it's more squeezed

  • you can already feel lots of foreigners there

  • but Wrocław, I feel a little bit less

  • actually that's true

  • so it's a little bit more homie staying in Wrocław

  • in Kraków, when you're in the center

  • you can't even hear Polish language

  • so many tourists

  • nothing bad about that

  • Kraków is still an amazing city

  • the other cities is more about... river and seaside

  • for sure...

  • tricity

  • at the northern side of Poland

  • and tricity

  • the reason why it's called tricity

  • because it has three cities in one

  • it has a main city, which is

  • the biggest one as well

  • also one of the most famous cities in Poland

  • also the other one

  • a bit smaller

  • which is

  • and the smallest from these is

  • you will see lots of ships

  • lots of possibilities to go by ships somewhere harbors

  • Gdynia is more like harbor city, lots of them

  • and Gdynia is also...

  • not that many beach sides

  • Gdynia looks more like a normal place you will live there, actually

  • and very modern

  • yea because

  • Gdańsk got lot of ... like...castle

  • medieval buildings

  • so it's really like a tourism place

  • about Gdańsk

  • and Gdynia is like

  • there is a harbor

  • but it looks like, it's really for business usage

  • for boats

  • we lived in Gdynia last time

  • in the hostel

  • you just feel like: so chill, it's like my city

  • yea, very very nice

  • and Sopot is more like a very rich city

  • single houses

  • also a very big hotel there

  • molo (harbor)

  • super, super rich

  • and the beach

  • people go there in the summer as well

  • and then about the city that we used to live

  • for a bit of time, half an year
