Polish property in Warsaw, Krakow, Tricity, Poznan etc had been good investments whilst the Zloty was 8 to a £. Of Course the Irish & Poles returning from UK had distorted the market. The taxes are low I beleive around 18% and no capital gains tax if the asset had been held for five years. The Vodka & Women are not bad either.
Skiing in the Tetra mountain is cheap and before you all jump to quality of soviet style blocks. There are some very modern & high tech buildings have been erected in the last fifteen years.
