Buying tobacco in Poland?

by fullingdale

Understanding that tobacco prices in Poland are amongst some of the cheapest in Europe, it make perfect sense for a weekend city break - the cost of which offset against cheap tobacco saves a small fortune.

I understand that prices for 50g of Golden Virginia would be around 2 euros and that returning home (within the EU) the recommended maximum is 3Kg (60 x 50g @ 2E = 120E).

Could someone confirm the following for me, please:

-- Is it really 2 Euros for 50g hand rolling tobacco?

-- The recommended maximum is correct, right?

-- When buying tobacco in Poland, has the tax/duty been paid?

-- Where's the best place to buy (tobacco shop, supermarket, etc.,)?

-- Are there plenty of these places to buy?

-- Can it be bought in the airport on the return trip?

-- Does anyone know what Polish customs officials are like? In particular, with 3Kg of tobacco are they likely to give me a hard time?


Many thanks for this and I look forward to the trip.

I believe that the same restrictions for bringing tobacco and alcohol apply for Poland as for duty free from outside the EU, so it's the UK customs people you might end up having a chat with...

I bought several times rolling tobacco. It was 10-14 zloties per pack (around 3-4 euro).
Tobacco for rolling cigarettes is not common. Poles do not roll. If they do - rather rich people, not the poorer ones. Thats why you can get it in luxury markets, big shopping malls, sometimes at railways stations.

HI

I travel 6 or 7 times a year to gdansk to buy cigarettes.

Best place to go is the carrefour supermarket or Auchen, or any side shop.

I usually bring back lots of cigarettes as really cheap.

Dont worry about customs in poland, only the uk. And they dont care anymore as they're too busy allowing criminals and rapists into our country

Travel Tips for Gdansk

Channels and Amsterdam

by Raimix

I have heard some phrases before, that “if you don’t have possibility to visit Amsterdam, Gdansk is nice choose”. I think it is not just nice phrase, but true as well. The old part of city has numerable examples of Dutch architecture, including main city gates, Arsenal. Other thing, that is a basis to tell Gdansk is similar to Amsterdam, is channels of city (let say, Motlava Channel).

Polish people eat quite early! ;-)

by Carletto76

As my dear friend Landad taught me, it seems that people from Gdansk like to eat quite early at dinner... usually around 6pm!
So, if you plan to go out at dinner with someone from Gdansk, remember to go quite early: they cannot resist too much time without eating! ;-))
It's not easy for a southern man like me to get used to it, if I eat at 6 I'm hungry again at midnight, anyway it's good to respect foreign traditions and way of living... and there's always time for a midnight snack! ;-)

Gdansk glass cases

by matcrazy1

There are numerous glass cases with amber and siver jewelry put along the Royal Way and, even more, along Mariacka street. They have different shapes, some unique to Gdansk. For example there are glass cases in a shape of Gdansk burgher houses behind them, or in a shape of other old, famous Gdansk structures, or Gdansk street lamps.

Sail the Baltic

by Jase1177

If you are every afforded the opportunity to sail on the Baltic, do it. Sailing can be pretty much the same in many places but each has its own characteristic. The Baltic seemed to be calm (at least when we were on it) and tranquil with great views of the coast.

Church of St. Peter and Paul.

by Askla

Not much is left from the once so rich interior of the St. Peter and Paul church as it was almost completely burnt down during the World War II. Originally the church was built in the 14th century. There are, as often, diffe-
rent information on the year of building but I rely on the plaque on the church wall.

The church is situated in the Old Suburbs, Stare Przed-
miescie, south of the main tourist areas, in ul. Zabi Kruk, just a little east of the Franciscan Church and the National Museum. The closest tram stop is Zabi Kruk on lines 8 and 13 (the third stop from the main station), then head south ~250 metres.
