2012 was also supposed to have been the year in which Poland joined the euro zone, but that target was dropped as the single currency has been mired in turmoil.
Other dates have been mentioned, such as 2014 or 2015. But analysts are skeptical the euro is such a good idea, even if ordinary Poles are still optimistic.
"I think the effects [of joining the euro] would be positive," Adam Krawkova, a 42 year-old stonecutter taking a stroll with his wife in central Warsaw, told CNBC.com "If we had the euro in Poland, our work would be easier."
Krawkova is self-employed and says that for people running a business in Poland, life is hard because of high bureaucracy and big taxes.
Many Poles believe that joining the euro would bring better political leadership and more competence when it comes to economic policies – despite the protracted crisis in Greece.
"I trust the competence of European economists, they are not as political as the ones here in Poland," Beata, a journalist taking a stroll on Warsaw's coquettish boulevard Krakowskie Przedmiescie with her mother Zdzislawa, a retired teacher, said.
"The European society is more responsible, in Poland people expect politicians to help them. Europeans are more self-reliant, the market is freer [in the euro zone]," she added.
Being pro-European is important, and adopting the euro would be a way for Poland to prove it is, Zdzislawa said, adding that troubled Greece should be helped because of the principle of solidarity: "I would hope if Poland had problems that other countries would help."
Euro Party Is Over
But analysts say that joining the single currency before the country is ready would do Poland more harm than good.
"It's not about being pro-European or euro-skeptic, it's about thinking about the economic conditions," Jan Filip Stanilko, an expert in political economy at the Sobieski Institute, told CNBC.com.
The country's economy must be absolutely in step with the stronger members of the euro zone, plus there is the problem that the euro zone itself doesn't know what it will look like in the future, other analysts said.
"This is like going to a party. Going to a party too early is bad; going too late is also bad," Marian Moszoro, professor of finance at IESE Business School in Barcelona and former deputy minister of finance in Poland between 2005 and 2006, told CNBC.com. "Do you want to join the club when you have to pay a very high entrance fee?"
The Central European country of 38 million is certainly not ready to join the single currency, as it does not yet meet the criteria set out in the Maastricht treaty which founded the euro. Polish inflation is still too high and its currency, the zloty, is not as stable as is required.
The zloty's volatility may actually increase as investors from abroad in search of high yields at relatively low risk set their sights on Central and Eastern Europe again. Last Friday, the Polish central bank intervened in the market for the first time in more than a year, buying zloty to stop the currency from weakening.
If Poland joined the euro, it would not have the problem of a volatile exchange rate but at the same time it would not be able to use the exchange rate to boost its exports, Stanilko said.
"We would follow in the footsteps of Spain, we'd lose competitiveness on production," he said. "We'd have a bubble in real estate."
