Krawl Through Krakow’s Pub Crawl: What to Expect
Krakow is a city full of hidden gems: local bars, historic pubs and some great clubs make the city’s nightlife famous. Poland is arguably the home of vodka, and there’s no doubt Poles know how to party. Krakow is the ideal place to have a crazy pub crawl experience: the city is teeming with travelers from all over the world, students, and girls and boys eager to make new friends and have fun.
But it can be hard to navigate the different bars and clubs on your own, dodging the many tourist traps. A smart choice is to opt for one of the best pub crawls, such as the one offered by Krawl Through Krakow, which is one of the best established and most popular in town. It’s like having a friend show you the best of the nightlife of Stare Miasto, the Krakow’s Old Town, taking you to good bars, pubs and clubs where you can have a good time in complete safety, making friends easily and enjoying lots of booze.
What makes Krawl Through Krakow pub crawls so unique is their staff: every single night at 9pm groups that join the pub crawl are greeted by friendly, smiling and excited staff, right in the heart of Krakow, near the large statue of Adam Mickiewicz in the middle of the Main Market Square. This happens all year round: in winter, but also in summer, which is among the most popular seasons. And for New Year’s Eve they usually throw a big party, with lots of food and booze.
Krawl Through Krakow’s expert guides speak good English, are very friendly and eager to party just like you. They are mostly locals, used to leading groups in a professional and safe manner. The highlight is the start of the pub crawl: an hour of free drinks, giving you the chance to get to know your fellow crawlers. This means unlimited drinks: beer, rum, gin, whiskey or vodka, the ideal fuel for a night full of fun!
Now, the first question: are the drinks really unlimited? Short answer: yes! The drinks are truly unlimited and for an hour you can drink as much as you can, even if – believe me – it’s much better to drink responsibly, because the night is still long and there’s still a lot to do! Indeed the pub crawl takes you through a variety of unique bars and clubs, each with their own distinct atmosphere. You’ll visit places you may have never found on your own, from cozy basement bars to vibrant rooftop clubs. The crawl ends at one of Krakow’s top nightclubs, where you can dance the night away.
One thing we liked is that whether you’re traveling solo or in a group, the team at Krawl Through Krakow will make you feel welcome and included. They go above and beyond to ensure that everyone has a great time and that the atmosphere is lively, fun and safe. You shouldn’t worry if you are a solo female traveler, or if you come alone and have no friends to bring. Indeed, it is better!
During the night you can try your hand at various drinking games, such as the popular beer pong, flip club, drinking Jenga and so on, winning symbolic prizes and gadgets. It’s the perfect way to break the ice and enjoy several hours of genuine fun. In addition to the first hour of unlimited drinks, Krawl Through Krakow’s pub crawl visits up to three more great Krakow’s bars and clubs, offering free skip-the-line entry and welcome shots at each. The venue varies from night to night: the guides always know which are the best places to go and have fun.
We were skeptical at first, but we had a blast! We were attracted by the hundreds of positive reviews on Tripadvisor and a 5 out of 5 rating, so we wanted to give it a try! And Krawl Through Krakow’s pub crawl is undoubtedly one of the best in Krakow and possibly Europe!
The prices are very affordable: only 90 zł for guys and 85 zł for girls, which means around € 20. And you get a night full of fun and drinks! It’s no secret that Krawl Through Krakow’s pub crawl is one of the most popular in town and hugely in demand, but our advice is that it’s well worth it! But make sure you book in advance on their website!
