What has surprised you in Poland?

I knew many things about Poland already before but one nice surprise was the vast amount of good beer labels.

Just did. Not too far, not too close, both in geography and culturally.

I didn't struggle much :)

Tell us about the differences between studies in Poland and studies in Finland :

There were no significant differences.

What do you like about studying in Poland?

I liked a lot! It was interesting experience to study abroad and meet different people. PUE was quite good university I think.

Yes. Lech Walesa, Nicolaus Copernicus, Marie Curie, Frederic Chopin and the previous pope.

Describe the places in Poland, that have a positive influence on you:

At least the following cities: Poznan, Warsaw and Tricity. There are many places I still want to visit. Time went so fast there.
