Turks in Poland are people of Turkish ethnicity living in Poland who form one of the country's smaller minority groups.

Turkish community

The total number of Turkish people in Poland is underestimated and data collected by different public institutions seem to be incoherent. Over the last decade, Poland has seen a wave of Turkish immigrants who have had to actively look for an economic niche for themselves. They started as small traders and wholesalers; today, they have become successful entrepreneurs and investors.[2]


The majority live in Warsaw or in the vicinity; but small communities of Turks are also reported in Poznań, Gdańsk and Łódź.[2]
