Water in Poland?

I have traveled extensively through Western Europe and a bit in Eastern Europe as well. I never had a problem drinking tap water in restaurants, hotels, or rental properties. I have heard stories about the water in Poland and am wondering if it is safe to drink. I will be spending a few weeks there this fall.

Municipal water - so tap water in towns and cities has to meet EU standards so is perfectly safe to drink.
Some smaller villages, farms etc still rely on wells so that is perhaps not so great.

Tap water in Poland is perfectly fine. I don't recall drinking much tap water in Poland, it was primarily beer, wine and vodka.

OF course it's safe, it isn't some third world country. I drink it all the time when I'm there.

I've never heard of those stories myself, I've only been in big cities.

Safe - yes. Tasty - no, not at all.

Surely nothing can taste as bad as Orlando tap water? I'm also quite certain that I'd not want to drink the water in Flint, Michigan.

In Poland, good water. That's when we were in Egypt, there was terrible water. The hotel always gave clean bottled water.
