Swedish chemical engineer Alf Laurell chats to Jolanta Wolska.

What brings you to Warsaw?
My wife is Polish and we came to visit her family. I have been visiting Warsaw for the last eight years.

What surprises you about Warsaw?
Every time I come here there is always something new—new buildings, new art galleries. The city’s transformation is dynamic, unlike in Sweden. Warsaw feels very international.

Where do you like to go in Warsaw?
I often end up strolling along Nowy ¦wiat and the downtown area, trying out new restaurants or sometimes going to see a new exhibition at the Zachęta art gallery.

What do you like about Polish people?
I like the Polish temperament. Poles are very outgoing, while Swedes are rather introvert. I love the warm welcome every time. And I feel there is no difference between generations here.

What do you enjoy in Warsaw?
We love going to all the exhibitions. There is a very vibrant art scene in Warsaw. I was very impressed with the architecture of the new Museum of the History of Polish Jews, and am looking forward to seeing the exhibitions next year. The Jewish festival was fantastic.

What do you find strange?
That Poles seem to be constantly arguing about everything and voicing it out loud. We are not so openly outspoken.

What are your favorite Polish dishes?
I love żurek, the Polish sour soup, and dill cucumbers.
