Aktualne ceny w Polsce – podstawowe towary

Despite the fact that Poland belongs to the European Union and is in the group of rapidly developing countries, the cost of living here is not as drastic as it is in other countries with a similar economic status. Contrary to appearances, some products may actually be even cheaper than in Ukraine.


On the conversion of product values

Before starting to compare prices for basic goods in Poland and Ukraine, public earnings must be taken into account. It should be remembered that the average salary of a Pole is 3.5 thousand. PLN, in turn, in Ukraine is about 900 PLN. In turn, the minimum wage in Poland in 2019 is to amount to PLN 1,600 net.


With this in mind, it is worth realizing the real price of basic goods. For example: A Pole earning a national average can buy 1,400 breads per month (PLN 2.5), while in Ukraine this number will amount to 600 (bread for PLN 1.5).


Food and drinks

The most often purchased food products by Poles are meat, vegetables and bread. As a result, they are offered at a really affordable price, as well as in many variants. The cheapest bread will be given for PLN 1, the most expensive even for PLN 10. Huge stores and hypermarkets, which constantly develop their networks and increase the number of branches, play a huge role here. For this reason, almost every place in Poland has access to a cheap and well-stocked store.
