Overview of Hen weekends in Krakow
It's little wonder that Krakow is enjoying a boom in UK visitors on its shores, Krakow is one of the most cost-effective cities to visit in Eastern Europe with its bevy of bars and clubs serving drinks that undercut even the cheapest bars in the UK. You can also benefit from stunning views of medieval architecture and the has-to-be-seen Wawel Castle which overlooks the city, meaning Krakow hen weekends deliver on every level.
Truly a city of real substance, and offering a real culture shift as the locals certainly march to the beat of their own drums, but don't let the angular arm thrusts and sharp turns of phrase fool you, they're a friendly and welcoming people. So build your hen weekend packages here and have a Krak-ing (oof) time in the city that should be Pole position (sorry) to host your hen weekend.
One of the main things to know about Krakow is that it played a major part in the Polish Golden Age where brilliant and breath-taking works of art and architecture were created which still stand today – and when it comes to ‘today’ in Krakow, the Polish city is experiencing a Golden Age when it comes to hen weekends, with a welcoming culture, vibrant city, cheap drinks and a whole lot to do.
Expect a rampant night out if you’re heading into the centre of Krakow, a place that loves a good club as much as it does a ‘right proper boozer’ or high-end bar. It’s all here but what are the standouts? Well definitely mark out the swanky Coco Club and Frantic when it comes to searching for a place to round off your night and Showtime or the Camelot Café when it comes to having a chilled drink with the girls earlier on – or as we like to say, ‘the calm before the storm’.
Get cultural and take a sightseeing tour of the city’s beautiful old architecture (walking the entire Royal Way is a good tip here), do away with wine tasting and opt for Polish Vodka Tasting, or add some adrenaline with Zorbing or a Laser Gun Battle – who said ladies can’t take part in a bit of action.
Krakow's Famous For
Wawel castle and cathedral, its Royal architecture and the fact that it’s surrounded by mountains making for some great hiking or skiing opportunities.
You can see all the sights of Krakow without any transport whatsoever, however this is a hen party so it’s expected you might be a little worse for wear on one of the days or worn out from all you have been doing. The trams make getting around a breeze and of course, hail a cab and make use of how much cheaper they are than over here.
