For the last couple of months, I’ve been gathering real estate offers in a few polish cities. I’ve created a small dashboard to track prices of offers and also analyze trends.
I sincerely hope this article will be an eye opener for you. Recently I have installed a Pi-Hole at home. To keep it short, this lets me see the home internet traffic live and, if needed, block unwanted requests. The list of ads and trackers has been taken from open source repos like this. Equipped with this combo, I have decided to turn off all of the privacy add-ons that I use and browse the polish internet just like a layman for 20 minutes. Websites I have visited include popular news portals, facebook etc.
Recently, a lot is heard about some additional fees that our government in Poland wants to introduce. This, combined with a discussion among my friends about, among others, income tax threshold, prompted me to check how high the tax burden for employees in Poland and Europe is. I have included everything in one Excel and I hope that you will help me improve it.
I have chosen arbitrarily a few countries from Europe: the Czech Republic, Germany, Sweden and the UK. These are the countries, to which many people migrate and often seen as countries with a higher standard of living, as compared to Poland.
