#Lord on Sep 06, 2017 :
Graduate of Poznan University of Technology earning a salary of 18,000 PLN per month ( Lead software Architect ) poznan was a dream come true for me , Back in my home country i was earning 500 $ per month doing the same stuff i do here :D
#Sam on May 21, 2017 :
Reading the thread below, I think 12,000 PLN would be a very good salary. I will be taking a Managerial role with net salary of around 10,000 PLN if not more. Still, any comments on the salary?
#@ Salva on May 16, 2017 :
3000 is ok but you'll not save much. I used to rent a room in Rataje for 700 pln.

If your quality standards are those of a student you'll be fine, but get used of international food since Indian food is rare and expensive in Poland.

Also clothing and electronics are even more expensive than in the west, buy more online from Allegro and similar
#Selva on Mar 29, 2017 :
Hi All,

I am from India. I will be relocating to Poznan in May 2017 and my net salary is 3000 PLN. Please help me, is my salary will be ok to live in poznan? what will be the rent of single room in poznan?
#Krzechu on Sep 07, 2015 :
also, 3,270.00 PLN net/month as the max average salary is kinda low ...
here's full of outsourcing corps that pay mid-class educated workers in the range of 5500-8200 PLN net/month.

Yes they're not representative of the very average citizen, but they're even not a small amount of the population either
#Krzechu on Jul 23, 2015 :
I think people checked "1 pokoj" to give the price for the 1 bedroom flat.
99% of the time that kind of flat is a single room and the tenant sleep on the couch.
For a "2 pokoje" (bedroom and living room) you fall in the range of 1500-2000 zl wherever you go, could be Rataje, Grunwald, ...
#IT-Expat on Jun 08, 2015 :
Apartment (1 bedroom) in City Centre AVG 1,393.75 zł - 1,200.00 ~ 1,800.00
Apartment (1 bedroom) Outside of Centre AVG 1,087.50 zł - 1,000.00 ~ 1,300.00

Are those prices of the rental only without czensz adm. and bills?
Even in Rataje 1 bedroom apartments rental is generally never below 1000zl + 300/400zl czesc + ?zl gas/electricity
#IT-Expat on Apr 13, 2015 :

yes with 3200 zl/month you can leave in Poznan especially if you share a flat and don't have a car, a lot of things are extremely cheap, but mind that some mid-class goods are for the most as expensive as in the so-called Western Europe, among them:
- certain imported food
- electronics
- fashion (let say that if you don't want to wear pre-Berlin-Wall dresses you need to go to buy at H&M and Zara at full price and with very few sales during the year; I advise to buy more online or to take a couple of trip/year to Berlin that is very close and you can find cheaper and more various clothes)
- cosmetics
- flights

let say that Poznan (dunno the rest of Poland) lacks variety (and competition) in various things: diversity of the demographics, clothing brands, international food, ...
#IT-Expat on Apr 13, 2015 :
Some minimum prices can be changed.
At Tesco you can find groceries for these prices (you can check the online cart):
- 1.5L Water: 0.59 zl
- 1L Milk: 1.75 zl
- 10 Eggs (not 12): 3.19 zl
#alex on Mar 13, 2015 :
yes, this is true. Live here in Poland is terrible. Expensive and you earn 2000zl if you have luck
#Abduaziz on Mar 05, 2015 :
Any one can tell me is this price True? i want to get my master degree in PUT means i will stay in poznan 1.5 year
#Abduaziz on Mar 05, 2015 :

#Rime on Jul 29, 2014 :
Yes. it is possible to live with 3200 net. is just like if you earn 5000 in warsaw.
in poznan you can find a studio/1bed apprt around 1100+utility so, in warsaw don't even dream about it. you need minimally 1700+bills etc/ lets say around 2000zl if you want live alone, not in collocation. more that the life very expensive there. so in my opinion less salary and quiet city then ......
#Gabni on Jul 29, 2014 :
great news for me, i'm going to relocate there soon.
soon i will say pa pa to warsaw, top expensive city in poland. i can not wait anymore
#Eju on Apr 06, 2014 :
Do you think is possible to live in Poznan with a salary of 3200 Zloty Net per month?
#Aga on Mar 19, 2014 :
Well, it's not really close to the real salary. It's nice to dream about it though:)
#toni on Feb 28, 2014 :
Of course the prices are statistically (cuz how you wanna create them in another way Mr. Obvious ?).
But this statistically prices are really close to real. I am leaving here since 2,5 years.
