    Another question, I was told once that Baltic people and Mediterranean people have very similar skin and skin tones, but they just live in vastly different climates. So, I was wondering if hypothetically a man of Northern Polish descent lived in Southern Italy his whole entire life would he be just as tan as an Italian?

    Also, is the golden/yellowish skin tone common in Poland?

    to be honest, I myself cannot see the difference between colour of the skin between eg Poles and Brits. Theres maybe more very pale people in UK but Maybe my eyes are not that good.

    Most of the time Northern Poles are grouped in with them.

    Baltics don't have anything common with Poles fex. from Katowice or Warshaw.
    You may say Poles from Prussia, but not Poles=Baltic people.

    I know language and culturewise they're different, but phenotypically a lot of North Poles are similar.

    Poles being north-central europeans have quite some diversity. Therefore you will find those that are perfectly north-western european white, and offcourse quite the amount of people with a non-rosé white tan, almost yellowish. This holds true for Czechs and Slovakians too, and offcourse Hungarians.

    Not directly related to the thread, but i must add that polish girls are awesome. just my two cents.

    Eliades I don't know where you got that idea but it seems to be a reocurring misconception on anthroforums.

    Northern Poles like all Poles are central Europeans. Northern Poles are not that much blonder and not any more Nordid than central or southern Poles, Poles are rarely Nordid anyways, Nordid influenced is another matter. Cromagnid types are probably more common in the North East for example but that's as far as it goes.

    Take a look at a few of these blokes who I used to play football with in example they're all from Northern Poland but would you really say they look more similar to Balts than than they do to East Central Europeans? i.e. Czechs, Slovaks, Ukranians, Hungarians.

    Like Solki said there's a lot of diversity in the country, some Poles have that beige-white skin that tans brownish, others than more yellow skintone which tans olive, there are even some with that rosey undertone that rarely tans although they're in the minority.

    Its a radical statement.
    I dont know if you mean that Poles are categorised in different group, as Slavs, and Lithuanians and Latvians and some Estonians as Balts- in this case its true, Poles, as same as Germans or Sussians or Danes, belong to a different groups, non-Baltics.
    still however it will be a radical statement, cause "nothing common" does not relate imo to indoerupean, european neighbouring groups.
    As well history, migrations etc, it all makes me think that your tatement is radical.
