Booked my Lil Bros stag for September in Krakow. Will be booking Auschwitz and probably firing range. Any advice on bars / pubs / clubs to look out for?

Also, I read that police out there are proper strict on stuff like jay walking and singing whilst drunk, we're Welsh, we sing when we're sober let alone hammered :D Any of this true or are police decent as long as you aren't caused hassle?

    Unsure if you're into history etc but im pretty sure Krakow is just a short drive away from the Auschwitz camp and museum

    Been for a stag do. Cracking place. We went to a brand new go karting place not far away as well as a shooting range. Is pretty cheap for everything there

    Ye there's a tour we can jump on for €30. Definitely going to be doing it, think it's something we all need to see.

    What are rough prices for Go Karting and shooting range, sounds like it'd be a quality day out those 2.

    Also, how much is beer? £1.50 a pint I heard.

    Unsure I'll see if I can find it just now. We were like £250 all in for flights, hostel 3 nights, pub crawl, shooting range, go karting and a dinner thing lol.

    Yeah around about that for a pint. Was 2 years ago I went now but don't think prices changed much since.

    The shooting range is nuts. They just give you whatever gun you want to try with no safety talk or anything :joy: the pub crawl was also well worthwhile

    That's the karting website where we went. It's 45 PLN for 8 mins on track. So like £9 :joy: was a fair group of us and think we went on track 3 times each. Really isn't expensive.

    There are loads of shooting ranges if you just have a look on goole. TripAdvisor usually has reviews as they are big with stag parties

    Have a good time, done careful though. A friend went recently and his card was cloned, and used for a deposit on a flat in the city lol. It can happen anywhere, but be careful.

    Auschwitz is 100% a must visit.

    Booked up. Staying in a hostel near to Main Market Square. Is this the main area for bars/pubs? Just want to get a rough idea of how close we are for when we stumble home at night :D

    Auschwitz is very unsettling though. You probably know what you are in for when going but saying it anyways. It hits really hard once you are actually there.

    The Salt Mines is a quality visit aswell.

    There is a speciality vodka shop just off the main square if you fancy tasting loads of interesting flavours.

    Some really nice restaurants in the square in Krakow, the exchange rate isnt as good as the other year but food and drink will be way cheaper than the UK.

    Don't bother looking to buy anything clothes wise from shops it was the exact same price as the UK when we were over which was quite suprising

    Good stuff, we'll keep a look out for Vodka bar.

    Is Stare Miasto where main drinking areas are?

    Auschwitz and the local girls. I don't think I've seen so many beautiful women anywhere. They must keep the fat and ugly ones locked up in a basement.

    A bloke I played rugby with has Polish heritage and he said once that you'll do well to find a fat Polish bird :D
