Sights & Sounds

Sights and Sounds in KrakowAfter a particularly eventful night out (Polish vodka is a little bit stronger than the stuff we're used to in Blighty) a sunlit stroll around Krakow's beautiful grand square is certainly a great way to rid yourselves of the previous evenings excesses. Admire the gorgeous architecture of the Basilica and make sure you get a group selfie in front of Eros Bendato, a giant sculpture of a head on its side!

What's on in Krakow

In the Diary

February - Shanties. Let your inner sea-lubbing lass loose as you soak in the salty atmosphere of this stunning sea shanty festival.
June - Wianki. This annual festival is simply amazing - celebrate the coming of summer by floating a colourful wreath down the Vistula river and go dancing in the streets to the sounds of big-name Polish pop artists!
June - Jewish Culture Festival. Krakow comes alive during this annual celebration of all things Jewish - don't miss the euphoric Szeroka street block party at the end of the festival.
September - Dachshund March. Imagine a flood of eye-wateringly cute wiener dogs bumbling through the streets and you're pretty much there - this is definitely one for any pooch-loving bride-to-be!  

Top of the Shops

Best Shops in Krakow

Krakow's fashion sense is deceptively simple. Style here isn't achieved with a flagrant amount of colour or make-up, but with muted colours and a frosty kind of elegance that Polish women seem to pull off with the greatest of ease. But don't throw money at high-end shops in an effort to mimic this effortless style - there's a wide range of vintage and independent stores in Krakow packed with cut-price wears to transform you into the pouting Polish hipster you never knew you wanted to be.

Vintage Classics - Vintage shopping rarely gets as stylish as this. Look like a true fashionista with stunning dresses at prices that won't break the bank!
Where? ulica Jozefa 11, Jewish Quarter

Idea Fix - This edgy collection of Polish-made designer goods might be a little pricier than the vintage shops, but they're still far cheaper than the high-end stores at home, and the beautiful threads you'll discover here are simply to die for.
Where? ulica Bochenska 7, Jewish Quarter

Cloth Hall - Inside the deceptively ornate and glamorous Sukiennice is the most amazing free market you'll find in the capital. The sheer joy of discovering the weird and wonderful goods sold here is reason enough to give Cloth Hall a visit, let alone the possibilities of escaping with a bargain buy!
Where? Main Square, Old Town

Girls About Town - Getting around Krakow...

Krakow is a bustling metropolis, and while it doesn't boast its own metro system yet, there are still plenty of ways to get around above ground. Of course, walking these beautiful streets is always our recommended way of exploring the city. But, when you're laden with shopping bags, a Krakow Tourist Card will give you free access to the superb bus and tram network - just remember to get your ticket stamped!

It's time for a hen party in Krakow!

It's not the capital city, but it is the most popular tourist destination in Poland - that should tell you something about the incredible amount that Krakow has to offer visitors. If not, let us tell you - it's one of the most magical, historical and cultural of Poland's cities, with the sort of world-class nightlife that's made it a top favourite with stag parties for decades. Hens have been a little slower to wake up to its charms as a hen do destination, but that's all changing - the vibrant nightlife and the well-established entertainment and leisure options have propelled Krakow to the top spot for Polish hen dos, and it's fast gaining ground over the rest of Europe too.

Why: Reasons to have a Krakow hen party

If you want a mythical, historical city built on fairytales, castles, and dragons, Krakow is the city for you. If you just want a weekend that provides some of the most classic, trusted hen do activities and allegedly the most bars in Europe, hen parties in Krakow provide that too. It might be older and more traditional than Poland's capital city, but that definitely doesn't translate to boring - Krakow has had more time to perfect both it's day and night scene, resulting in some of the best quality activities and entertainment anywhere in Europe. The city is stunning, the days are buzzing, and the flight is short - what are you waiting for?

What: What do hen parties in Krakow do?

Krakow is a city getting better by the day - from shopping to sightseeing to nightlife, there's no area in which Krakow doesn't excel. Krakow hen dos are the most popular in Poland, and it's long been in the top ten destinations for stags to visit - clearly, they're doing something very, very right. Whether that's the energising outdoor activities, luxurious pampering days, or hedonistic nightlife, we don't know - but you've got the opportunity to find out.

There's plenty to get girls on their feet. If you've got a hen that would enjoy water sports, motor sports, a good old fashioned pole dancing class or even pampering for a relaxing weekend away, we have something to offer!

It's the night time when Krakow really comes in to its own though - the bar, club and restaurant scene in Krakow is superb, easily the best in Poland. The rumours that it has the highest density of bars in Europe haven't been confirmed, but we do know that there's over 300 bars and pubs in the Old Town district alone, and that's without even touching on Kazimierz or any of the other districts.

When: The best times to visit for a hen party in Krakow

Krakow's a hotbed of activity all year round, with great festivals, national celebrations and events going on all the time. Pay a visit over New Years when fireworks light up the skies and rock bands perform at the Rynek¸ or in February for the International Shanty Festival and Fat Thursday (essentially an excuse to eat as much as you'd like!) The Bach Festival and Organ Festival's are favourites in March and then in April the Paka Cabaret has one-off performances and galleries. Cheer on the crowds during Cracow Marathon in May, as well as the International Film Festival with film showings and talks. July is big for festivals, with the main ones being the Summer Jazz Festival and International Street Theatre Festival and in August there's the Music in Old Cracow Festival with lots of musical shindigs. The Sacrum-Profanum Music Festival offer more musical delights, as does October's International Festival of Early Music and November's Zaduszki Jazz Festival. And lastly the year ends with a fantastic Christmas Market, with stalls, food and a range of yuletide customs. Overall, whenever you choose to visit this striking city there'll be something on to get the crowds going!

Shop: Krakow shopping areas & recommendations

While it's unlikely you'll find a Topshop or H&M on your Krakow hen do, what you will find is a great range of Polish department stores and artsy backstreets providing great places to pick up antiques, artwork and jewellery. Explore the Kazimerz area for a great range of shops as well as open air markets, including Plac Targowy, or if you're after traditional Cracovian souvenirs then pay a visit to Cloth Hall in the centre of the main square, where you'll find a selection of glass work, lace, amber, local sweets and stuffed dragons. If you're after a few hours of good retail therapy then you could hit one of Krakow's great shopping malls - Pasaz 13 is a gorgeous old renovated townhouse that's been turned into a shopping area, or visit Galeria Krakowska which covers 60,000 square meters over three floors.

How: Getting to Krakow hen do

Krakow is one of the top tourist destinations in Europe, so there's no shortage of cheap flights to the city from all over the UK. Ryanair and easyJet are two of the top lines sending flights to Krakow, and between them there are airplanes touching in from Belfast, Bristol, Edinburgh, Liverpool, Birmingham, Dublin, and Leeds.
