What Duty-frees you may bring in to Poland.  

Since Poland is the European Union’s member state any goods from the EU are exempt from customs duties. Excise duties are a different story. EU directives clamp them on fuels, alcohol, tobacco products, and perfumes, and Poland in its own right extends the list further to an array of products, from cars to playing cards. Some of those commodities are subject to duty-free allowances, some are not. And, again, when the allowances do apply, duty-free quotas are different for goods brought from the other EU countries and from the rest of the world. 


Duty-free allowances of alcohol. 

From the other countries of the European Union visitors are allowed to bring in to Poland up to ten liters of duty-free strong liquors such as vodka or whisky and twenty liters of alcoholic drinks such as liqueur or port. Also, free of duties are 90 liters of EU wines (including 60 liters of sparkling wine) and as much as 110 liters of beer. 
As regards alcohol brought to Poland from non-EU countries, duty-free allowances are one liter of strong liquors, two liters of alcoholic drinks, two liters of wine, and five liters of beer.


Duty-free tobacco products. 

Allowances of tobacco from the EU cover 800 cigarettes, 200 cigars, and one kilogram of pipe tobacco. From outside the EU one may legally bring either 200 cigarettes or 50 cigars or 0.25 kilogram of pipe tobacco without paying duties. 

How much perfume you don't need to declare. 

In general, perfumes and toilet waters brought in to Poland from the rest of the EU in personal luggage are exempt from duties as long as the quantity seems justified for personal use. 
Duty-free allowance of perfumes brought from outside the EU is 50 milliliters (1.7 fluid ounce), and 250 milliliters of eau de toilette. 

Other goods.  

As regards other goodies you want to stuff your baggage with and bring in to Krakow, they are exempt from duties as long as they come directly from EU countries. Otherwise, their combined value cannot exceed 175 euro or 90 euro in case of minors (i.e. visitors under 18).
