In Reply to: Warsaw, security concerns about visiting. posted by Moises on August 18, 2001 at 12:59:47:
I have been to Warsaw twice by airplane. I never experienced any trouble. I am an American. It seemed safer to me in Warsaw then it does in the USA. I met my fiance in Warsaw and went through the interview process with her. We were in Warsaw for an entire week. I felt comfortable the entire time. I traveled in taxis, but I always used a regular taxi and not a private car. The Polish people are not very friendly, but that is there nature. You will find most of the hotel personal speak English. Many people in Poland understand Russian. You should have no problem conversing. Warsaw is a great place for sightseeing. Go to the old town section in the main square for artisans and music. Walk through the large parks in the central part of the city. Very nice and very large. When you go to the Embassy, do not wait in the long line. Go to the main visitor gate and show them your USA passport. You and your fiance will be admitted immediately and told where the interview room is located. We got to the Embassy at 8 a.m. and were done by 10 a.m. The interview lasted about 10 minutes and was very easy. The rest of the time was spent waiting for our names to be called. Best wishes on your future life.
