How can I export excel to CSV file with UTF-8 encoding?

If I export with default excel encoding I get some artifacts like wrong letters - eg I have some Polish characters like: ó, ź, ą, ę, ł etc.

When I export to csv all those characters get wrong encoding. 



First row should be: 3, Poznań

But instead I get: 3,Pozna?

How to solve this problem?

Entire data after export should looks like this:


I use Microsoft Office Excel 2013

In google docs excel go to:

File -> Download -> Comma-separated values (.csv, current sheet)



Your data in google docs excel:
