Holidays abroad out of reach for Poles this summer?
PR dla Zagranicy
A new survey for Polish Radio reveals that over 50 percent of Poles are not planning to go on holiday this year, with most people deciding on either staying at home or vacationing in the country.
The survey, undertaken by Homo Homini pollsters shows that 52.5 percent of Poles are not planning any vacations. 38.2 percent of respondents have decided to holiday in the country, while only 10.2 percent of respondents said they are planning to go abroad this year.
Head of the Homo Homini pollsters Marcin Duma told Polish Radio that people who can afford to go on vacation have decided to spend their time off work domestically in an effort to save money.
The holiday period may be one of the worst for Polish children, as 72.7 percent of parents who were polled said that they would not be sending their children on holiday camps this year.
However, Marcin Duma states that many children living in the countryside will have contact with nature, while 12.9 percent of children can count on going on holiday with their parents, with a further 5.1 percent spending their vacations with other relatives.
The Homo Homini poll was conducted on 22 June on a representative selection of 1069 adult Poles. (jb)
