    When asking for tickets in a theater, for ejample.
    How would you ask for a "seat located in the centre of the row".
    I got "Proszę o miejsce jak najbliżej środkowej części rzędu", but it seems unnatural (or maybe just too long).
    Any help?
    Thanks!

    You can use one of these:

    "Proszę miejsce [gdzieś] pośrodku rzędu." (not extremely polite, but simple and straightforward; you can omit [gdzieś] (somewhere))
    "Czy mogę prosić miejsce pośrodku rzędu?" (more polite)

    You can risk omitting "rzędu", but then you can get a place in a middle row, but not necessary around the centre of that row.

    "Proszę (dać mi) miejsce jak najbliżej środka (środkowej częsci) rzędu." Just another alternative. Sorry, I thought you were asking about the English phrase before. In fact, I like your original suggestion as well -- I don't think it sounds awkward.
