Welll you might look at this two threads:

for projects

for projects that are already U/C or with valid construction permit etc.

Tricity for sure, Hanseatic Gdansk, summer curort Sopot and modern, vibrant Gdynia.

It also depends what do you mean by "diverse". Warsaw was largely destroyed in the WWII so it's rather modern so socrealism and late modernism kinda dominates but there are also some high quality reconstructions, neomodernism, postmodernism etc. so it feels quite diverse if you ask me but I guess things like that are subjective.

You won't find big minorities in any city in Poland.

I think Warsaw might be a little better compared to the rest of the cities as it's a financial and political capital of Poland.Anyways I have some Polish friends there so diversity won't be a big deal

If you're interested in multicultural cities London or Rotterdam would be a better choice, there are some exotic tourists and immigrants but I doubt it would be enough to create "diverse" feeling you are looking for

There is no multicultural city in Poland. There were a few: Warsaw, Cracow, Lodz, but they lost their diversity due to WWII.

If you want to go diverse in Poland, definitely check out Wólka Kosowska, just outside Warsaw. Half of population Chinese or Vietnamese, also significant Turkish minority. Big cities have some pretty diversified cuisine to offer, ranging from anything like Sushi boxes to Turkish/Arab kebab to South American restaurants- many of these run by natives (watch out though for pizza restaurants, there are plenty of those and 90% do not have anything to do with Italian cuisine ). In the east, there are some Ukrainians and Belarusians, but they are fellow Slavs and not much different anyway. Other than that, you will not find diversity of British or American levels. Actually, outside of large cities/summer resorts/border areas, finding any foreigners may be quite of a challenge. You will find plenty of Jewish legacy though- mostly graveyards and monuments.

Polish society is quite homogenous and therefore a lot of Poles are racialist, especially in the less cosmopolitan cities and particularly towards people with darker complexions such as Indians and Africans.

Generally speaking, Poles tend to look up towards the English (God knows why)
and sometimes have an inferiority complex when it comes to Western countries - this is why you will often hear self-depreciating phrases banded about by Poles such as ‘’not a bad building as far as Polish standards go’’ (referring to a piece of architecture in Warsaw for example) or ‘’we are a long way from becoming European’’ meaning not having reached high levels of civility and social advancement, as if Europe represents high civilized ideals and ‘progressive’ culture.

Warsaw is the most diverse city – ethnically, culturally, architecturally and in terms of its increasingly cosmopolitan character.

Great assessment!

Of all the (wonderful) reasons to visit Poland this would surely qualify as being the least important one. It's almost like saying you'd like to visit Canada to check out its beaches. If you'd like a taste of Poland, and Krakow in particular, please check out the link in my signature.

Knowing xJamaax and African forumers in general he probably asked us in which Polish city it's least likely that he would be beaten to death by local skinheads because apparently in "Eastern Europe" people have nothing better to do.
