Savoir-Vivre in Poland


"Savoir - Vivre in Poland"

Savoir-Vivre is a French expression which literally means "knowing how to live", and it encompasses all the good manners and etiquette rules. In most Western countries the rules are fairly similar but there are always interesting national differences! There is a saying: when in Rome do as the Romans do. The saying also applies to Poland and it is important to know how to behave in the country which you live in.

When in Poland:

  • Should you kiss someone on the cheek when you meet?
  • Should you kiss a woman on the hand?
  • How to give flowers?
  • How to behave well by the table?
  • Who should walk where on the street?

The answer to those and many more questions will be answered by Rafał Staniszewski an expert from the Regional Center of International Debate in Poznań, who conducted several dozens of training regarding Savoir-Vivre and diplomatic protocol.
