Climate and Time
Poland’s climate is slightly colder than that of its neighbours to the West. However, this does not stop summer temperatures reaching the high thirties in southern parts of the country. On the flip-side to this, temperatures in the winter often drop far below zero, and sometimes includes heavy snowfall.
Depending on daylight saving, Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane are between eight to nine hours ahead of Poland.
