Places to Eat in Krakow?

It’s been said that Krakow boasts more cafes, restaurants, bars and clubs per square metre than any other city in the whole world. Whether you believe that or not, what we do know is it is almost impossible to walk more than 50 metres without finding another restaurant or pub!

One place to try is Wierzynek - this restaurant rumours to have served numerous of celebrities over the years, from world leaders like Fidel Castro to Charles De Gaulle and fashion icons like Kate Moss. Spread out over four floors, this restaurant dates back to medieval times and is most famous for hosting the wedding celebrations for the Holy Roman Emperor Charles IV and Elizabeth of Pomerania in 1364!

Another fantastic city centre restaurant to explore is Starka. Situated in the Kazimierz district in the city centre (Krakow’s historic Jewish Quarter), this extremely popular restaurant is enjoyed by tourists and locals for its traditional Polish cuisine menu with specialities like spicy goulash soup and pierogi. Krakow doesn't just offer Polish cuisine, there's plenty of other foods you can indulge in - including fine dining. If you're after Medit­er­ra­nean tastes than try Klimaty Południa Restaurant where you'll find a real working fire and cosy, welcoming atmosphere.

Local delicacies are easy to come by in this city. One of the traditional dishes you must try whilst in Krakow is Bigos, the Polish equivalent of Hunter’s Stew. This is traditi­onally a winter dish and is made in large batches from cabbage, leftover meat, onion, garlic and mushroom.

Where to Shop in Krakow?

Where to Shop in Krakow?

When it comes to spending a few pennies in Krakow, you and the girls will be spoilt for choice when it comes to finding the right place to shop! Whether you’re looking to take an entire afternoon for your spending spree or you girls just fancy a browse, there’s a host of different places you can head to.

The first place we’d recommend for shopping in Krakow is Florianska Street. One of the most important thoro­ug­hfares in the city and forming part of Krakow’s Royal Road, the street stretches from St. Mary’s Basilica to St. Florian’s Gate in the Old Town and is lined with some of the best places to shop anywhere in Krakow. With plenty of stores and vendors selling souvenirs and goods, this is probably the best place to head to if you’re looking for a little momentum to remember your visit by.

Krakow also has a number of large shopping centres dotted around the city and its outskirts. In the city centre you can find Galeria Kazimierz. Located in the historic Jewish Quarter at the heart of Krakow, this large shopping centre complex houses over 130 different stores and services, including major high street brand names as well as eateries and even a cinema.

Another big shopping destination that’s both conveniently located and packed full of things to do is Galeria Krakowska Shopping Mall. Situated directly next to Krakow’s central train station, this huge complex is home to around 250 stores and services and is spread over three floors, making this the ideal place to go if you want to shop ‘til you drop!

Guide to Krakow Nightlife for Hen Parties

Although Krakow isn’t top of most peoples’ lists for a hen weekend in Europe, the nightlife is one of the most underrated anywhere on the continent! In fact, Krakow’s Old Town has more bars and pubs per square metre than any other city in the world. Krakow also happens to be a massive student destination with around 10 higher education schools located around the city, meaning that the nightlife is as wild as you think!

Pubs in Krakow

Aside from the longstanding tradition of vodka making, Poland has taken up a new brewing passion with craft beer and lager. More and more independent brewers and craft ale pubs are popping up all over the country, especially in cities like Krakow and Warsaw! If you and the girls are looking for a cosy spot to enjoy a local beer or two, then you’re in luck.

The first pub we think you should check out is House of Beer in the Old Town district. This traditional-style drinking hotspot stocks a wide variety of Polish, German, Lithuanian and Belgian beers for you to try plus many more from all over Europe and the rest of the world.

If you girls are looking for a little slice of home, then why not check out Krakow’s Bull Pub? This casually cosy drinking spot is a favourite for British tourists and those looking to catch the latest live sports. Being an English pub, The Bull serves up pretty much exactly what you’d find down at your local back home!

For a fantastic all day venue that definitely deserves a mention is CK Browar. This micro-brewery, restaurant and nightlife spot is as traditional as traditional gets! The interior of this pub features rustic exposed brick and wooden beams, making it the perfect setting to enjoy some delicious Polish cuisine or a locally-brewed beer. What makes this pub’s beer special is that it’s the only place in the city believed to still use the old Austro-Hungarian recipe. So whether you’re hoping to treat your taste buds or get psyched up for a night out, this is the place to head to.

Bars

Because of Poland’s low tax rate and lack of regulations on spirits, vodka is easily the most popular drink of choice. Krakow is no exception, and we think that you should head straight to one of the Old Town’s “Shot Bars” to experience some delicious flavoured vodka during your trip. One place to try is BaniaLuka. Known for its unbelievably cheap pints that can cost less than £1 and deliciously flavoured vodka shots that can cost even less, this is the ideal location to head to if you girls are looking to pre-drink at a local hotspot before a big night out.

Another brilliant place to check out some of Poland’s best flavoured vodka is the aptly-named Wodka Bar in the Old Town, located just a short walk away from St. Mary’s Basilica. One of the most popular drinking hotspots in the area, this bar boasts over 90 different kinds of flavoured vodka, with anything from caramel to coconut to choose from!

We all love a great cocktail, right? Well when you and the girls jet off to Krakow for your hen party abroad, this city has plenty of places to enjoy a cheeky martini or two! The first place we recommend checking out is Budda Cocktail Bar. Looking out onto the historic Old Town market square (Rynek Główny), this bar boasts a lovely beer garden area and front seating that makes for the perfect place to sit in the sun with a few drinks watching the crowds go by. If cocktail bars are your thing, then why not opt for a cocktail bar crawl hen party in Krakow?

For a really quirky experience, why not let your hair down and enjoy a few drinks with some in-house enter­ta­inment at Cybermachina Game Pub? Situated on Stolarska in the Old Town district, this bar is known universally as the most interesting place to drink in the entire city! This game-themed bar almost doubles up as an arcade, with games consoles, board games and much more available for punters to use. As well as a menu of themed cocktails and weird & wonderful drinks throughout, this is the perfect place to head to for a chilled evening or as a fun idea before a night out!

Nightclubs

Looking to go all-out and have one last big night out with the girls before the wedding? Then coming to Krakow to dance the night away is a great choice. As we’ve mentioned before, the student population in this city is teeming, meaning that the nightlife is as good as it comes… and Krakow’s nightclubs are no exception!

The biggest and arguably the liveliest place to consider is Prozak 2.0. Located in one of the oldest underground spaces anywhere in the city, this three-floor nightclub has hosted some of the best DJs in Poland and the rest of Europe and is a regular hotspot for techno and house music lovers and students alike.

Another awesome underground nightclub that’s definitely worth the visit is Frantic Club Krakow, a modern and spacious venue that consists of four bars and has hosted some of the top DJs from around Europe and the rest of the world. Opening on weekends and hosting booming parties until the very early hours of the morning, what’s not to love about this classic club?

Tips for Getting the Most Out of Your Krakow Hen Party

Tips for Getting the Most Out of Your Krakow Hen Party

With so much to see and do in Poland’s second city, it can be hard to fit everything you want to do in just one weekend or a few days! That’s why we think that making the most of your hen party in Krakow should be your main priority! One way to make the most of your visit is by taking a trip to one of the city’s oldest and most iconic buildings, being Wawel Castle. Situated in the heart of the city on Castle Hill, the city itself started out as a hamlet on the site of the castle before expanding into one of the most important trading cities in Central Europe. Packed full of historic relics, this historically important castle is definitely worth the visit if you find the time.

Another way to make the most of your hen party is by exploring Planty Park, a thin strip of green land that wraps around the Old Town area. A total of 4 kilometres long, this fantastic park takes you far away from the hustle and bustle of the big tourist areas and gives you a chance to relax and take in some breath-taking scenery.

How to Get Around Krakow?

How to Get Around Krakow?

Although Krakow doesn’t have an underground metro system like the capital Warsaw does, the city does operate an efficient above-ground tram system that runs from the early hours of the morning until 11pm. This is probably the fastest and most reliable way to get from one place to another in the city, as parking can be difficult to find in the city centre if you plan on hiring a car and many streets in the city centre do not allow regular car traffic.

Krakow also has a well-run bus network that covers the city centre and the suburbs. If you need to get somewhere that’s slightly out of reach of the tram network, then this is probably your second best choice in terms of efficiency and cost. However, when it comes to exploring all the popular tourist attractions, most are all within walking distance from each other! So if you plan your route properly, walking the majority of Krakow’s busiest areas will prove to be a great idea.
