Culture and Etiquette in Poland

As a nation in which around 75 percent of people are practising Roman Catholics, Poland maintains fairly conservative religious and social customs, especially in the countryside where men are often still seen as the breadwinners. Poland’s young, urban population tend to be both more relaxed and wilder than their parents. Yet Poles of all ages are also warm, passionate people, fond of handshakes and of lively, informal conversation over a vodka. Table manners follow the Western norm and it is common to reward good service with a ten percent tip, though Poles will sometimes leave less.
