The name sets it up nicely; Poland’s second city is cracking good fun! In recent times Krakow has become one of Europe’s top stag weekend destinations for the crowd wanting to experience probably Poland’s most cultured city with a healthy portion of partying. Poland is a huge country; its position in UK consciousness accelerated in recent times by many of our friendly Polish cousins settling in the UK and increased access to Poland itself with daily flights from several UK airports. Anyway back to your Krakow stag do, as a city it’s a stunner. The Old Town Square, littered with restaurants and bars, is the largest in Europe. And within 5 minutes of the square you’ll find a healthy number of additional pubs, bars, clubs and restaurants. There’s plenty to whet the appetite.
From budget hostel to 3*, 4* and 5* hotels, we can provide you with the best central accommodation suitable for your stag weekend!

Recommended Krakow stag activities include the target shooting, clay shooting, white water rafting, go karting and paintball. The pick of the bunch is probably the target shooting but we would definitely suggest an activity combo that is combining one morning activity (to work out the beers and Bison vodka from the night before), an energy boosting lunch and something agreeable in the afternoon. If target shooting’s not your thing paintball and karting is always a winner, it’s got everything and it keeps the lads on their toes (and temporarily out of the boozer) without being too demanding. Sunday morning you could always take in a hit of culture or an invigorating spa, perhaps even a massage.
The number of city centre hotels and hotel bed spaces is slowly increasing but high season in Krakow (May-Sept) still brings its capacity challenges so make sure you start thinking about your accommodation early. Five star hotels are in short supply but we have deals with several well selected three and four stars. Rest assured whatever your requirements with GoStag you’ll get the best for the budget.
So there you have a little intro to Krakow, it does by no mean do it justice and we haven’t even touched on its historical significance (WW2 started in the region – perhaps an omen for the groom!) – in our opinion it’s definitely one of the top ten stag weekend destinations in Europe. It’s highly recommended and when you talk to our experts you’ll be given more detail and more reasons why a Krakow stag do is such a great idea!
