In Upper Silesia Katowice and Gliwice are the best to live. But if you no need to live in Silesia agglomeration I recommend Bielsko-Biala or Opole.

#KK, so what cities would you recommend in Poland? From pics & other research, Katowice seems to have a lot of beautiful parks and nature trails, etc surrounding the city, a growing economy, close to mountains, cultural events, sports centers, etc.

@J Campbell
It would be doable anywhere in Poland for that kind of money, I'm not sure why you chose Katowice tho, wouldn't it be better to find a place with a cleaner air?

Hi, I retired last year and am receiving $1,400 USD a month for S.S. and am very interested in Poland to live.
From my research so far, Katowice looks perfect on paper, and I would love to spend some time there to make sure it's a good fit for me. But that could be a moot point if I can't afford it. I'm a young 62, single, and in good health, so,could someone please advise, would $1,400 USD a month be doable to live on in Katowice, including rent, utilities, food and all expenses? Any info would be appreciated! Thanks!
