Krakow Stag Do Reviews
Is Krakow Ideal For Your Stag Do?
All You Need To Know
Krakow is a city that has a little something for everyone. Besides history, art and an old-world atmosphere all its’ own, Krakow offers visitors entertainment and leisure in the form of clubs, cabarets, cafes, bars, wine cellars, and some of the best restaurants in Eastern Europe.
Krakow is a top stag destination for two very simple reasons. First of all, the city has the most bars per capita than any other city in the world meaning that even if you spend your entire trip visiting all the bars and pubs that your liver can manage, you still won’t have seen them all! The second is the price. Krakow is dirt cheap, but unlike some destinations, the great prices come with a great atmosphere and quality. So technically you’re paying less, for more.
The food is lip-smackingly good, and the nightlife really is amongst the best in Europe. There are many things to do for culture vultures, adventure enthusiasts, nature lovers, museum geeks, art lovers, foodies and even shopaholics!

Krakow is well served with a variety of public transport options from buses to street trams and even trains that will whizz you to most other major cities in Poland.
The main city centre is small enough to get around on foot.
Although Poland can get pretty darn cold in the long winter months from around November to April, there are still plenty of invigorating and entertaining stag activities that can be held inside like indoor go karting or even Paintball. Generally the Spring, Summer or even Autumn are better times for travel where it is warmer, the days are brighter and the list of activities are much longer!
- Day trip to Wieliczka salt mine: Krakow’s attractions & activities are not all over ground. The Wieliczka salt mine is a fascinating underground monument and museum, which will give your stag group a unique perspective on the destination.
- White Water Rafting: For the active stag groups, a great alternative activity during your trip to Krakow is a day of riding the rapids at Krakow’s Olympic 350m man-made course on the River Vistula. White Water Rafting is fo the daring stags!
- Visit Auschwitz concentration camp: Your stag do abroad will probably constitute a lot of partying, drinking and debauchery, but if you are in Krakow, you may as well get to know the destination, so embark on some cultural activities such as visiting Auschwitz Concentration Camp – A pillar of Polish history.
- Get Spooked at Lost Souls Alley: A visit to Krakow’s first ever interactive museum dedicated to fear is a great Stag idea to help separate the men from the boys! Who will scream first? Who will grab onto the others for protection? Who will run? And who will stay strong? You decide
- Explore the bars of Kazimierz: Kazimierz is far and away the coolest place to go out in Krakow. The main square, Plac Nowy has emerged as the something of a Mecca for the city’s sub culture, lined on all four sides with the best bars, clubs and pubs around.
- Vodka Tasting: Poland has some pretty decent beers, and drinkable wines, but where the Poles really excel when it comes to alcoholic beverages, is Vodka. Get right into the ‘spirit’ of the destination, with an educational(!) Vodka tasting experience.
- Airsoft Gun Battle: Airsoft will give you the chance to live your gritty urban gangster fantasies in an all-out gun battle using replicas of real guns and plastic bullets, in a derelict old warehouse in the industrial outskirts of Krakow.
- Stag Party Bus: Partying in bars and clubs is great and the nightlife in Krakow means you and your mates will have plenty of options, but for an alternative stag party idea, why not go all out and Private Party Bus to take you around the city complete with booze, music and even strippers if you want them.
- Brewery Tour: This is a great stag activity for those who want to get a bit of pre-drinking in early before the real party starts! The Tychy brewery makes pretty fine beers which you’ll get to sample during the tour. After all tasting the local booze is a good way of getting to know the culture!
