It’s no surprise that Krakow is known as the cultural capital of Poland. The Old Town is Krakow’s beating heart and home to Rynek Glowny, the biggest medieval market square in Europe. It’s packed with market stalls, restaurants, bars and clubs, a must visit during your hen do in Krakow. Kazimierz is the city’s historic Jewish quarter with vibrant culture, galleries, retro shops, night time dens and quirky bars with a real shabby chic feel.

Auschwitz concentration camp is around a 40-minute drive away. This museum and memorial provide an extremely sobering experience that might not be everyone’s cup of tea, it’s a must visit for history lovers. About a 30-minutes’ drive away, you’ll find Kryspinow. If you’re visiting in the warmer months, this is a great spot to visit with an artificial beach set a massive lake plus a bar, waterside, volleyball and basketball court for a fun day out during your hen do in Krakow.

Krakow isn’t known as one of the best party cities in eastern Europe for nothing, you know! With more than 2,000 students living in this young and vibrant city, you know you’re in for a great time.

Hen Parties Activities in Krakow

Before the party starts, why not have some quality time with the girls and feel any stress melt away with a hen party Spa Day in Krakow? You’ll each receive a champagne tasting, sandwich plate and access to the spa’s fabulous swimming pool, sauna, jacuzzi and steam room. As if that wasn’t enough, you’ll also get an amazing 30-minute treatment, performed by the spa’s talented staff. Will you go for the hot chocolate massage or the relaxation massage? Either way, it sounds heavenly as you relax to the max and catch up with your best girls whether it’s having a good old gossip about the upcoming wedding, last night’s shenanigans or arranging a plan of action for tonight.

Fancy working out your grey matter? An Escape Game sees you locked in a room for one hour and the only way to get it out is by solving clues, puzzles and tasks as a team. Alternatively, if you want to combine some detective work with sightseeing, try out our Treasure Hunt. All run by a mobile app, this interactive, GPS hunt sends you on a quest around the city sights, asking you questions and setting you photo and video challenges.

Traditional Polish cuisine is all about comfort food, hearty and heavy on carbs with loads of meat. Sounds good, right? Especially when we all know that calories don’t count during a Krakow hen party! Pierogi are dumplings with a range of fillings, traditionally potato and Barszcz is beetroot soup that packs a flavour punch. Zapiekanka is Poland’s answer to the UK’s late night kebab. These tasty baguettes are smothered with cheese and mushrooms and tomato or garlic sauce.

Krakow’s the birthplace of the milk bar (bar mleczny). First opened in 1948, these cafes offered cheap and cheerful, dairy-based meals and drinks to the masses. Many milk bars closed with the collapse of communism, but some still remain in Krakow. They’re certainly not fancy but are well worth a visit for a filling meal and to experience the local culture.

Why not give our Traditional Three Course Meal a go? You and your besties will enjoy a two-hour sitting before tucking into a soup starter, main course and dessert from a traditionally Polish set menu. We’ll also treat you to two drinks each, either wine, beer or soft drinks that you can use to toast the bride and groom-to-be.

A friendly English-speaking guide will meet you before your meal and walk you to this city centre restaurant, so you don’t need to worry about finding your way through the winding streets or potentially getting lost! They’ll stay with you to help you order your dinner and drinks, help with any translations and generally make sure everyone’s having a great time.

If you’d rather have a lighter bite, we also offer a Traditional Pierogi Dinner where you’ll get your lips around these tasty European dumplings with savoury fillings and wash them down with a refreshing beer. Again, an English-speaking guide will help you find the restaurant then later on, walk you back to your accommodation or a nearby bar of your choice to carry on your Krakow hen do.

Krakow boasts one of the highest concentrations of bars, pubs and clubs in Europe.

Rather someone else did the pouring during your Krakow hen night? Try our Vodka Tasting. There’s an ongoing debate between Poland and Russia on who invented vodka but if you listen to Krakow locals, they’ll say this delicious drink was created in Poland in the 8th century so where better to taste the stuff? You’ll each get your hands on five different vodkas with fun facts shared by the bartender and snacks provided to help line those tummies a little.

Our Bar Crawl is an awesome introduction to the best watering holes in the city. You’ll visit a minimum of three bars over the course of three hours and will receive two cocktails each. The friendly, English-speaking guide will show you around and make sure you have the best time.

Krakow city centre is conveniently close to the airport, reachable by taxi in around 30 minutes so it won’t take you long to be in the thick of all the action.
