If you have arrived in Poland to work or just visiting, congratulations! You’ve landed in an amazing country! Breath-taking cities, delicious food, nice people, nature, landscapes and vodka!
Zloty in Polish means ‘Golden’ and the term was used for all kinds of gold coins in the 14th and 15th Centuries. This Polish currency was eventually introduced in 1950 after a period of country’s internal turmoil, wars, occupation and several currency name changes.
Poland joined the European Union in May 2004 but has yet to adopt the Euro as the common currency. This entails amending one of the articles of Poland’s constitution but there is no firm deadline currently in place.
