City guide ratings explained
Beer: €2 for a pint.
Bed: €20 for a private room.
Bud: €10 per gram.
Board: €3-7 for a main course.

Krakow is home to Europe’s biggest Medieval square and the city is the perfect size for a walk about. It’s delectable, with lots to do, gorgeous girls and booze for peanuts. Krakow is the quintessential Eastern European city.
Polish girls are made from exemplary stock. If you like naturally good looking girls you’re in the right place. Many men go crazy for the Polskis. They take care of themselves, dress well and have a variety of hair colours from light blonde to jet black. From observation, the women here are much more attractive and slimer than their neighbours in the the west and south. The sex ratio is preferable too – there are 13% more women than men living in Krakow. That said, the locals are hard to crack. Polish society is relatively conservative for the region. One night stands are not common and even getting a kiss takes patience. This is exacerbated in Krakow, the main tourist city in the country. In all likelhood you will be labelled as another horny tourist looking to get laid. To combat this you need to lie about how long you’re in town and learn a little Polish. They will screen you like crazy, so take the time to warm them up. I’d also advise travelling to the city in winter when you have a greater chance of experiencing the “real” Krakow with less stag parties and a healthy injection of 120,000 Polish students. In reality, your Polish flag will be easier to get in any other city, unless you have a bit of time here. For online game consider nightlife.pl or ympatia.onet.pl. Alternatively, there are a fair few tourist chicks around looking for cock.

An American living in Krakow writes about Krakow girls.
Most nightspots are easily within walking distance from the main square, many of which are underground and have a bunker-like feel to them. Krakow has a great pub culture, but only a few decent options in the late hours. The good news is you can usually find something going on every night of the week.
A wee bit of a walk, but well worth it. Here you will find nearly half a dozen different venues all in the same building! Caryca & Lubu-Dubu to name but a few. The whole thing feels like a giant house party in some Commy slum. This is an ideal place to pick up locals. You will either love it or hate it.
No trip to Krakow would be complete without checking out Prozac. Inside is a maze of staircases, cocktail bars & dance floors. Nearly every room has different music and a different gang of fit girls hanging about. Great place to frequent and run game after 1AM.
That’s my input. Cracow-life provides a further breakdown.
You would think a tourist hot spot like Krakow would be flooded with weed, but this isn’t Prague. Your best bet is college students. The building on Wielopole street attracts a few smokers, but you need to ask around. Art Club Bledne Kolo has a reggae night on Saturday, in bob we trust. Expect to pay around €10 per gram.
My Krakow Experience
I’ve been to Krakow three times, so I obviously like it! All occasions were weekends when I was with large groups. The summer months are lovely, but winter is better for locals. Every time I’ve went I’ve had completely different experiences; with one consistency – utter inebriation. The first time I went things got WAY out of hand, but that story is for another day. As for women, I’ve personally found Krakow chicks hard work compared to Warsaw. Go to the capital for the flag, but go the Krakow for everything else!
