Can't rate GoHen enough for their super help, support and service with my hen party. They gave me great confidence and any queries were answered super fast. I can't recommend it enough, absolutely brilliant!
Poland knows how to do beer, and you'll quickly be intwined in their wicked brewing ways around Tytano (a converted tobacco factory) that is a trendy hangout that also hosts great places to grab a bite to eat.
Luckily, the most famous tourist spot in Krakow is also the most famous drinking quarter, where walls are lined with restaurant bars that will provide everything you need for a hen party night out. Discuss the day's escapades over a much-deserved drink and don't let us down by not trying the vodka offerings. It's a city of heavy drinkers, but they also know how to do class with innovative cocktail menus including this Polish-staple spirit.
Sights - After 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!
To discover Krakow's most spectacular parties, you have to look beneath street level. Cien nightclub is where all of the Polish party capital's bright young things go to let their hair down; it's glittery, lively and a whole lot of fun. Drinki dla wszystkich!
Does the bride-to-be love the unusual? Then she's sure to dig the Tram Party! This is the funkiest night out in the city, and let's be honest, where else are you going to go clubbing on a moving tram?
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.
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!
So you've done it, you've taken your hen party on the European tour of your dreams. But what do you do now you're here? Well, you could go White Water Rafting, Pole Dancing or Paintballing. Although a Water Park might sound childish, it's actually fabulous fun and a Pampering Day is sure to be met with plenty of smiles and girly giggles. See more hen activities in Krakow.
Krakow is certainly a dark horse in the race to become Europe's party capital. The nights here are vibrant, stylish and positively vodka-fuelled! From the moment the glowing street-lights are turned on, the night is filled with an indescribable energy that's unlike anything you'll find back home. Get your evening off to a sexy start with our sizzling Male Stripper after a visit to one of the city's top Restaurants. Then you can hit the Casino or some of the town's hottest venues in our Guided Bar Crawl before enjoying a Guestlist Nightclubbing experience! See all our nightlife options...
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.
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?
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.
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!
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.
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. There's really no excuse for not going to Krakow - wherever the girls are from, there should be an airport that covers it!
