The aim of this thesis is to verify and compare stereotypes and opinions of two different groups of examinees about the Polish people. There are some similarities between the Polish and Croatian nations, so very often they are called ''two fraternal nations'. Their relations and contacts go far back into history and they are still maintained through culture, sports, economy etc. It is exactly because of these various connections that certain stereotypes have been created in the minds of both nations. In this paper, we analyze the previous contacts between the two nations, we define the general notion of stereotypes, language stereotypes and ethnic stereotypes and at the end we will provide the results of the conducted research. The emphasis is on the perception and definition of the stereotypes about Poles, and also on the comparison of results of two different samples. The research results show that the opinions of Croatians about Poles are mostly positive. Although the answers of the examinees indicate that Croatians do not have a lot of contact with the Polish people and their culture, it can be concluded that some stereotypes, opinions and connections are widely accepted among the population, while some of them are the result of specific interests of individuals. From the linguistic point od view, language stereotypes about the Polish people and their culture almost do not exist in the Croatian language. Most of the features concerning character and physical appearance of Polish men and women are described as positive. The answers in both samples are very similar in most cases while the differences are insignificant.
