    To my experience, 'schody kręcone' is far more frequent, be it in colloquial or formal Polish.

    A quick Google search yields 'schody spiralne', but I've never come across it before.

    I'm curious what expression Slovene uses here. A cognate expression to BCS kružne stepenice seems to be Slovene krožne stopnice, literally "circular stairs", but a Google Image search suggests that krožne stopnice can mean spiral stairs as well. (However, "spiralne stopnice" gives more results when I search for it.)

    Spiralne stopnice, zavite stopnice, and krožne stopnice ​all sound fine to me.
