It's time to answer the all-important question of whether or not Krakow can kick it with the rest of them and deliver on stag do carnage!
The answer is YES! All Krakow wants to do is show you a cracking time on your stag do. With more bars, strip clubs and clubs in the city centre than any other city, Karkow is undoubtedly the party capital of Poland and its nightlife is guaranteed to deliver you on your stag do.
Krakow is one of the oldest cities in Poland and home to over 6000 historic sites and more than two million works of art. But, putting the stunning architecture and artwork aside, Krakow has everything you could ever hope for a stag do, here are just a few reasons why it's one of the hottest destinations for a stag do in Eastern Europe.
Here's your Krakow stag do guide!
Krakow might be famed for its insane nightlife, but it's still got plenty in the tank for some epic stag party activities during the as well!
By day, Krakow boats some of Maximise's favourite stag party activities including trigger happy shooting packages, such as the AK-47 & Shotgun Shooting Package or the Quick Response Shooting activity. In addition to these favourites, there is an array of insanely good-looking strippers and hysterical stag do pranks like the stag arrest, the Man vs Dog or even dwarf hire.
Or you can get your adrenaline pumping with stag party-favourites including paintball, karting, quad biking or the ever terrifying, but oh so fun, white water rafting.
Then there the slightly insane Tandem Skydive.
Either way, with days as epic as the nights, it's no wonder Krakow stag weekend are among the best out there.
Krakow is one of the oldest cities in Poland, dating back to the 7th century and it was capital for over 500 years before Warsaw took the title. There is no shortage of architecture, artwork, history or monuments to during the Stag Do.
Market Square: In and around the square you'll find some of the most well-known sights in Krakow, like the Cloth Hall, the Old Town Hall Tower, St. Adalbert's Church and St. Mary's Church.
Auschwitz-Birkenau: About 30 miles west of Krakow, you'll find the infamous Auschwitz concentration camp. Not your typical stag do activity, but if the history of WWII fascinates you then there's no better place to go and learn about the Holocaust.
Smok's bones: If you're a fan of the mythical or fantasy (or Game of Thrones), go see dragon bones on your stag do. Polish legend has it that Smok, the legendary dragon who lived in a cave underneath Krakow, can be found outside Wawel Cathedral. He used to terrorise the locals and gobble maidens from the sky before a brave knight fed him a sheep-filled with sulphur.
OR, there is the preferred stag party 'sightseeing' activity, which is a Booze Cruise on the Vistula. And for some additional great 'sights' you can add a stripper!
The old town is very compact so it's easy to navigate on foot. Most of the tourist attractions are in or nearby Market Square so if you fancy seeing the sights, or more likely doing a stag do pub crawl, then your feet will do the trick.
Hiring a car in Krakow is ideal if you want to get out of the city on your stag party and explore, but it's unnecessary if you're staying in the centre on your stag weekend. Krakow has a public transport network that would leave London green with envy and won't rip you off while doing it.
Buses and trams run from 5am to 11pm and make getting from A to B simple, day or night. Taxis are the best choice for getting back to your accommodation after a few too many Polish vodkas, but always make sure you hail a registered taxi to avoid dodgy drivers. If you're ever unsure, most pubs and bars will be happy to recommend or call a cab for you or just ask your lovely stag do guide to call you one!

Pints are also as little as £1.50!

You'll find the mass of bars and clubs in the Old Town and in Kazimierz. And, there is no shortage of variety, you'll find everything from Bierhalls, mammoth clubs, cellar bars, titty bars, terrace bars and more.
The area is fairly compact and easy to navigate on foot, which is perfect for bar and club hopping. With so much on offer, it can be hard to know where to go and where to avoid. You definitely don't want to end up wasting any time or money in a dive bar, which is why Maximise always recommend going on a guided bar and club crawl with one of ou lovely English-speaking guides.
Perfect for the first night, you'll get to sample the best Krakow has to offer as well as get a feel for the city and know where you'll want to head on the second night of your stag weekend.
