What do Georgian and Polish people have in common
Living abroad gives you the opportunity to discover a whole lot about the country that you’re living in. As you get to know the country you’ll find that there are actually a lot of similarities and differences between your home country and the country that you’re currently in. For instance based on my experience of living in Poland for a certain amount of time there is one thing that amazes me the most about Polish people.

Polish people are known to
be very hospitable, there is a Polish saying that goes: “a guest in the house, god in the house” Just like Georgians they care about making their guests feel welcome and try their best to provide them with everything that they can. The thing that amazes me the most is something that was told by one of my close Polish friends. Each year during Christmas every Polish family prepares dinner to celebrate with their loved ones, if for instance a person comes knocking on their door asking for food, a Polish person will go out of their way to host them. It’s in their nature to help those in need which makes them a whole lot similar to Georgians.

Georgians have a very close relationship with each other, they treat others like family. They’re known to be very humble and loving. They love sharing their culture with foreigners and try to make everyone feel at home. Poles on the other hand are more introverted. They take time opening up to others but once they do they’re just as humble and loving as Georgians.

Christmas tree in Warsaw

Both Poland and Georgia share similar delicious cuisines, for instance in Poland there is a well known dish called Pierogi. Pierogi is similar to Georgian Khinkali which is stuffed with meat; the only difference is that in Pierogi they also add other ingredients as well such as sauerkraut and cabbage. Pierogi can also be eaten sweet, filled with strawberry and cherry jam. It’s all up to your taste and preference. They’re both unique and delicious in their own way.
