Poland’s second city is situated in the south of the country and has a population of approximately 760,000. More laid back than its bigger brother Warsaw, the city possess a relaxed ambiance epitomised by the old town. This area is home to Wawel Castle (arguably Poland’s most iconic landmark), a collection of fascinating museums, beautiful churches and the largest market square in Europe. However, Iet’s be honest, it’s not the city’s churches and museums that we are interested in! Krakow also boasts more bars and pubs per square metre than any other place in the world. The city is compact and therefore you are able to explore the best boozers by foot. The drink is cheap with the average cost of a pint a mere £1.50. Did I also mention that one third of Krakow’s population are party loving students, most of which are female?
Unlike the majority of Pissup destinations, direct flights to Krakow cannot be found in abundance. Ryanair is the only budget airline that makes the 2hr 25 min journey from Stansted on a daily basis, so make sure that you book at least a month in advance to get the lowest price possible (around £66). Easyjet also makes a direct trip several times a week from Gatwick, whilst the journey with Lufthansa or Austrian incorporates a stop of approximately 30 minutes and tickets cost £150-£200. If this extra half an hour has put a frown upon your face, then don’t worry. Pissup will pick you up in our very own party bus, complete with stripper and bartender to kick the weekend off in style!
Although it is not the biggest city that we offer, Krakow does possess some of the best daytime activities that we have available. Shooting Kalashnikovs, off road 4×4 driving, white water rafting on a course used for European and World Championship events and indoor karting in 200cc super-karts at speeds up to 70kph are just some of the adrenaline junkie activities that we offer.
If your testosterone levels are a little low and you fancy playing the spectator rather than participant, then how about watching two oiled up local lovelies wrestling each other in our very own exclusive Pissup ring?! Alternatively our Tottie Tour shows you the very best in Krakow’s crumpet, taking you to three of the best strip clubs in town over the course of 6 hours.
Krakow has some of the best nightlife in Poland. It is a little more relaxed than Warsaw but boasts HEAPS of restaurants, pubs, cellar bars and nightclubs populated by friendly, laid back locals. Hundreds of bars can be found in cellars and courtyards stretching from the Old Town to Kazimierz. Le Scandale and the Hard Rock Café offer some of the best cocktails in town, whilst for the gamers among you Cybermachina is a cool venue that offers cheap drinks and retro games such as Super Mario Bros on the Nintendo. Stara Zajezdnia is the city’s biggest brewery and beer hall housed in an old tram depot. The extravagant Baccarat and the chic Pozytywka are just two of the better nightclubs that the city has to offer.
Thanks for a great trip, the stag really enjoyed himself. The lads have already commented on how it was excellent value of money. We just wish we had booked more activities. I will certainly recommend you to other groups who are organising stag weekends. We have already decided to do it again next year stag or not. I wouldn't suggest you change anything we experienced. The hotel was great, location great. Nightlife tour, carting and transfers all top notch. I would appreciate if you would pass on our thanks to our guides Ola and Kasia who are a credit to your company, charming, great fun and very knowledgeable. I would have liked to have passed on a generous whip round to Ola but the alcohol had took its tole after 23hrs drinking (early flight) and we got split up. Long after she was due to leave us I might add. Finally the casino below the hotel was a nice touch as well as the bottle of vodka the guide that collected us from the hotel presented to me, sorry I can't remember her name. I seem to be getting all the credit so thanks again and you'll certainly here from me in the future. Ok, off for the intravenous drip now. If the writing looks a bit fuzzy I can only apologise. Cheers, P (and 13 good friends).
