Welcome to Poland.

PolandNot what you were thinking? Not the black and white, closed off to the world image you had in your mind? While the language is different (and difficult), Poland is not so different from other European countries. Moms and Dads are busy with careers, kids are in music, dance, karate and language classes, teens text each other 100 times a day, Grandma wonders why anyone would buy frozen pierogis and Grandpa doesn’t understand why everyone is in such a rush all the time. Sound familiar? Then you will feel right at home at Graceland in Krakow, Poland.

Polish people are very similar to North Americans and Western Europeans. They are striving for success and are trying to find the magic formula for their own lives. And, while Poland is considered the most religious country of the European Union, recent statistics show that less than 1% of Polish people believe that faith has any impact on living a successful life.
