In a normal post office, they will most likely not have it, usually there’s only a very limited selection of stamps available.
For ordering, if you are travelling next week, it might already be too late. I usually get my orders within a week but I am in Poland - unless you have a Polish address to send to, then if you order today/tomorrow, the stamps should arrive some time next week.
If you will be visiting a bigger city, your best bet would be to find the post office with a philatelistic window - they always have a big selection of stamps. In Kraków, there is one in the main post office.
International stamps are 8 złoty. 5 złoty is a veeeery old price 4,50 was the domestic priority price until end of September, now even for that you need 4,80.
To use the EUROPA stamp for abroad, you need 3,50 in additional stamps.
Btw, you can check stamp prices in the stamp prices wiki on the forum - it is usually pretty current.
Thank you two so so much for the help!!
Do you think I might get lucky in Warszawa or Gdánsk? Or is it really best to just order the stamps online?
I am just collecting all the Europa stamps this year, since it is a beautiful topic, which also fits my master thesis!! And I just found out how beautiful the polish one is!!!
It might be necessary to go one of these “special” post offices more than once, though - maybe it’s better in Gdańsk and Warszawa but the philately window in Kraków (it’s rather a separate “booth” in the main post office) has the weirdest and often irregular opening hours. Though if you go around midday, there really shouldn’t be any problems with getting the stamps.
If for some reason you will not get lucky, PM after your trip, I can send you a postcard with this stamp The legend it shows is about the Wawel Dragon from Kraków
Then I will try my luck in Warszawa and Gdansk!
And @delenn_mir thank you so so much for also being willing t send me a card with the stamp if I am not lucky enough and can’t find the card
Sometimes I can’t believe how lucky I am finding this community, where everyone is so helpful!!
If you ever want your hands on a Norwegian stamp, I have, I am also more than happy to send it to you!
There is a philatelic shop in the main post office of Warsaw (ul. Świętokrzyska, 31/33). It is open from 8 AM till 8 PM at Mondays till Fridays.
They have EUROPA stamps for sure, I buy them there regularly.
I’ll also be visiting Poland soon (in November) and was just about to ask for postage rates for postcards in Poland. But then I found this thread and your super helpful link. Thanks a lot for the information given here and for sharing the link!!!
