Stags Staggering Around Krakow

Jun 11, 2008
Eastern Europe has become a very popular destination for stag weekends because of its cheap beer, accommodation and lively nightlife. One place that is extremely popular is Krakow, where a bottle of Pilsner costs just 5 zloty (just over 1). If you are planning on having your stag weekend in this city here are a few things that you may want to try your hand at.

As you are in Poland you will probably want to go on a Vodka tasting tour where you can learn about the history of Polish vodka, make new friends, and of course taste the vodkas. There are several companies out there who can source and organize these kind of activities for you - and no trip to Poland would be complete without an in-depth encounter with this traditional specialty. It's also a good way to kick off a stag party as you mean to go on (just be careful - these vodkas can creep up on you!)

On your Krakow stag weekend, if you are thinking about hitting the clubs, or even just want to be picked up from the airport in style, then you could always hire a limo. There are numerous companies offering limo hire in and around Krakow and drivers are usually bilingual so he can help with any translations that may be needed if your Polish isn't quite up to scratch. Again, there are specialist stag weekend organizers who can arrange limo transport with reliable firms on your behalf - it's the easiest way to get the best out of your stag weekend in Krakow.

One of the most popular stag activities in Krakow is visiting a shooting range. Here you can chose between two ranges, one for handguns, and the other for rifles. What's more you can shoot at moving targets and fire a Kalashnikov or a handgun - weapons that are totally off limits in the UK. Prices generally include a personal instructor, equipment and range hire, and ammunition - it's a great chance to live out those boy soldier fantasies before you tie the knot. If you want to get your hands dirty with some virtual combat why not look at paint balling where you can go behind enemy lines on a former military site and dodge pellets among disused army buildings.

If you're nursing a hangover and need to get some fresh air, or your Krakow stag weekend is in need of a little calming down, you might consider a sedate river cruise. It's the perfect way to unwind from all the high adrenaline of your weekend, sip on a cold beer and soak up the summer sun as you cruise through Krakow along the Wistula. If that sounds too leisurely you can always add some optional extras such as a live band, strippers or (another vodka tasting).

The bottom line is that a stag weekend in Krakow opens up a whole new world of options that you just wouldn't get in the UK - if you're looking for something to remember for the rest of your life, then head East!
