Krakow Stag Do
Krakow is one of the oldest and largest cities in Poland...
...no wonder it’s the country’s biggest tourist draw with one of the highest densities of bars and clubs than anywhere else in the world! With 18 unique and unusual districts offering various different atmospheres to suit everyone with amazingly stunning architecture and booming night clubs and strip bars. Perfect for any stag do. Krakow is famous for its architecture, mythical atmosphere with a modern party attitude and its Jewish history and culture.
Don’t even worry about letting loose and acting young again as Krakow is home to the country’s largest student population so you’ll fit right in. If you don’t have enough time to explore all 18 districts we suggest you definitely have to venture to the Old Town, Krakow’s beating heart of the city. It is also famed for its labyrinth character with small cobbled lanes shooting off in all directions hiding countless unique bars (which might we add will be hard to work your way around drunk but we all love a good challenge right?) What a way to make your stag do unique and one you’ll remember.

Best Bars in Gdansk
With Krakow having the highest density of bars in the world, hundreds of bars can be found in courtyards and cellars from Kazimierz right through to the old town! One thing we know would entice any stags to visit this city is that there isn’t really any opening or closing times! If the people are drinking, then the barman is pouring and that’s exactly what we like to hear.
Now if you want to go clubbing the main places to go are Florianska and Szewska. There are more than 400 clubs, pubs and bars located in the Old Town in Krakow. Baccarat is a very stylish venue and is known for being one of Krakow’s more stylish clubs. There is a giant mirror ball DJ Station and VIP areas. Or try the Frantic Club, this is a modern basement club and mainly plays dance music and attracts younger adults. Or Paradise Club Krakow, this venue is said to be the best strip club in Poland and is open every day of the week from 8pm until 4pm.
The former Polish capital’s atmospheric Old Town and streets in Kazimierz in the Jewish district is very popular full of exciting galleries, cafes, pubs and restaurants! With getting round the city your best going by either bus or tram. Both types of transport run from 5am until 11pm and there is also a night service which runs less frequently. We advise buying tickets beforehand as ticket stations accept all type of payment whilst on board, drivers only tend to take change.
If you’re wanting a historic touch to your stag do then we suggest in between all your Krakow stag activities that you take a visit to Auschwitz, although located approximately 1 and a half hours out of Krakow, Auschwitz is said to be more than worth the journey. Different companies offer tours to the site which pays tribute to the Holocaust victims. You’ll be given an insight into the history and get a chance to explore the preserved grounds.
