  • Greeting people in Poland
  • Slide 16
  • Relatives in a Polish family and friends kiss 3 times on the cheek on meeting, Older men may still kiss the back of ladies hand. When meeting strangers Poles will address you in a formal way compared to someone they are familiar with. Anyone over about 16 is addressed as either Pan (Mr) or Pani (Mrs), it takes a joint agreement to get on to first name terms. Polish people dislike loud or loutish behaviour. Communication is different in Poland - it is not acceptable to ask people you don't know very well personal questions. This is very different from countries like Greece where a question of a total stranger about their income does not offend. Sometimes the Poles curiousity overcomes their manners and they will talk to strangers - then apologise later. Families often welcome their relatives arriving at the airport with flowers.
