Living in Poland is no longer as cheap as it used to be since the market economy has come to be effective. Poland was in the 80's a hyperinflation country but now annual inflation rate has fallen below 10 %. The national currency, the zloty (PLN) has consequently become quite stable. Compared to most western European countries, food in Wroclaw is rather cheap. Nevertheless Wroclaw is the one of the most expensive city in Poland, but isn't as expensive as Warsaw or Krakow.

If you are staying in Wroclaw for a longer time then we recommend doing shopping in one of the big supermarkets which offer best prices for all everyday-use products and food.
