Polish love of Glasgow

by fergiehasfun

Why are there Polish clubs in the city and where are the monuments to the poles that were built here and who is the general who was in glasgow thru the war?

Re: Polish love of Glasgow

by ricky52

The Poles were allies of the UK during the second world war.
Many Poles (including my fathers family)ended up in the UK during and after the war.
Most major towns and cities in the UK will have a Polish club (White Eagle (Polish Air Force) in most cases.
Here we are now seeing the third wave of Poles coming into this country. (1st was 1945. 2nd in the 80's and 3rd who are coming now)
I can't help you with the General or the monuments.

I think you probably mean General Sikorski. He wasn't in Glasgow through the war, although he was based in Scotland.

'In 1940, the exiled Polish armed forces re-formed in exile under General Sikorski at Perth.'

During the blitz on the clyde it was the Free polish navy which gave the lufftwaffe serios resistance as they were berthed at glasgow in the early days of the war.
Later the polish army and navy were organised and Glasgow was made capital of Poland by Winston Churchhill in much the same way that Edinburgh was the capital of general DE Gaul and mustering point for the free french.www.glasgowhostel.pl has a small but highly informative exhibition about thiese events

Travel Tips for Glasgow

by traveler_007

well I havent been to glascow ...but I was near by ..perhaps about 80 miles to the west. I came up the firth of clyde from the Irish sea on a nuc sub. the sceanery was totally amazing there were 3000 ft high rounded off hills(eroded by wind the last 300 million years) as far as you could see! this place has to be one of the most beautiful places on the planet. the mountians come 3000 ft straight out of the locks(lakes) over there..its truely amazing

See you, Jimmy!

by CliffClaven

When Scotland plays an important match at Glasgow's Hampden Park, look out for one of the national side's more famous supporters. Rod Stewart, obviously a sucker for punishment, regularly turns up to groan and moan as the Scottish team slides and slithers to another ignominious defeat. The Scots once tenaciously held Brazil to a draw in the World Cup - but that was so long ago that even Rod Stewart looked young at the time. Alas, just as in Korea and Japan in 2002, there were no kilts and bagpipes and 'See You Jimmy' wigs at the World Cup in Germany in 2006.

Garnethill

by IanMacPhail

Garnethill is an interesting wee area of the City centre. It`s main tourist attractions are The Art School and The Tenement House, check at the tourist office in George Square for opening times.
Also in Garnethill is a nice little park for having a rest and eating your lunch, that`s just beside the St Aloysius church at Hill Street.
There are 3 main streets that run parallel to Sauchiehall Street and these are Renfrew Street, Hill Street and Buccleuch Street. The buidings in these street are really interesting and show typical Glasgow style houses of Victorian glasgow. Some of the doors and portals at the top of the hill are very attractive. apart from visiting the Art school and the Tenement I suppose that a walk around this area would fill half an hour and give you an idea of what Glasgow was like over 100 years ago.
Also close in Renfrew Street but East of the hill is the RSAMD (Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama) where they often have concerts at lunch time.

Robert Burns Cottage

by margaretvn

Visit the Robert Burns Cottage and Museum at Alloway near Ayr. The Burns cottage was built by the poets father. There is a short but very good introduction audio visual presentation in the cottage. There is a good gift shop in the museum.
There is also the Tam O'Shanter experience and the Burns monument.
The cottage and museum are open:
April - September daily from 9.00 to 6.00 p.m.
October - March monday to saturday 12.00 to 4.00 p.m.

Oran Mor

by hevbell about Oran Mor

This former church was refurbished and opened as Oran Mor in 2004. It seems to be a little bit of everything - bars, restaurants, theatre, nightclub & live music venue. I was here for the first time recently to see Sandi Thom perform as part of the cities annual Celtic Connections festival. The gig itself took place in the nightclub area in the basement & we also had drinks before and after in the Whisky Bar on the ground floor which had a nice atmosphere and mixed clientele especially as there was a Burns Supper going on the same night. The place is well known for its "A play, a pie and a pint" for £10 offer and seems to have many plays through the year

The building itself is gorgeous, especially lit up at night
