Hi Barry,

Re: Wroclaw. Just go to Rynek, all the pubs are good.

When you book in at your hotel ask any member of staff [under thirty] where to go.

Its probably about 15/20 min walk to the main market square, Florianska street much closer (just off market sq.) - some nice apartments for rent on there too.

If you are a 33 year old tourist and want to go to the pubs/bars at night, where do you go in Krakow? Are all these places for under 30's?

exactly ! Poland is total different than the other countries. Only really young people go to clubs, pubs. It is not Britain where people (no matter of the age of them) are sitting days and nights and drink the same beer........ Everything is different

eabc,

Are you having a laugh or what ? There is no upper age limit on getting pissed.

JasonR,

You'll be OK in city centre pubs. Most drinkers in any university city will be in their twenties. Outside of the city centre pubs/bars do take on a different character.

Clubs: Speak to the locals for good info. It really depends on what you're looking for.

Wroclaw you are probably pround of your city and I am not going to deny that there are not places to make fun there are, but I was living some time abroad and we spend our free time different than people in the other countries and the difference is that they are going out whoever they are and whatever they do, and no matter of the age. In Poland should have been that but in my opinion never been... let say that we are on the right way ... we need more relax ourselves but we still dont know how to do that

A was your air fare higher this time round ? I ask because there was talk of additional fuel tax or some such thing. Did you go to pubs and clubs or just pubs in Krakow ? Was there any snow ? Come on, spill the beans.

you can go everywhere... but usually ppl over 30 (I mean polsih people) go out in Jewish district (Kazimierz). to places as: Alchemia or Kolory.

but you can go anywhere at maket square as well. there are many ppl in different ages everywhere.

Booked the flight back in August so it was pretty cheap, but yes the lovely Environmental tax 10 pounds 5 each way will be added now.

Went to some great pubs and clubs, there was a little bit of snow it had snowed the day before we got there, eat some fantastic food...looking foward to going back to Poland in the Summer...

Got the lovely waiter in the Italian we went for my b/day to sing happy birthday to me in Polish...so sweet....my little stalker from Warsaw is still texting...bless...And the bar staff out of a club we went to in the summer remembered us...and got some birthday drinks off the staff in the Polish Pub - Absynth & Bailys...hmmmmm So yes all in all it was a fab holiday..

Bad thing was the flight got diverted to Brum on the way home because of fog, spent 3 hours on a coach to M/c and one of the girls got all her fags taken off her at Brum airport - I just took my chance walked past those waiting to get their cases x-rayed and didnt get stopped which is good because I had a 1000!! and Jo had 1400 plus several bottles!!!

A. do you remember the name of this Italian restaurant, and street? I know only "soprano", and "mamma mia" but they are not at Kazimierz

We didnt go to the Kazimierz district in the end, it was at the end of the road from the apartments that we stayed in....just near that first bar we went in - the food was amazing...

Wow! It sounds like you had a great time. You were taking a risk with all those ciggies weren't you. And several bottles ! Of what ? You're not trying to drink Poland dry, are you ? :)

The tax doesn't sound too bad. I thought it might be more. I might be flying back to the UK later this year so I'm trying to work out costs.

Are the clubs big in Krakow or just oversized bars ? Some of the clubs here in Wroclaw are very small, intimate.

any sized you want. from really huge till very small.

One of the clubs was not a bad size but the others were a little bit like bars with dance floors but good fun...music was spot on too!

I have never been checked in M/c, they had the nothing to declare bit down in Brum...the amount of L&M fags stacked up was mad...my mate took 2000 back and got them taken off her, she was taking them back to sell....I took several bottles of Wodka and some Becherovka home...It will last some time, I think we brought 8 botthes between us (me and Jo)

So when are you thinking of coming home??? Book flights now there are some good deals

get yaself on skyscanner - I think flying into Liverpool would be cheapest

Flights have definately increased, last year in the summer we got flights for £17 return including tax to Krakow!

A,
From what people tell me I think that the music is good in clubs wherever you go in Wroclaw. I've got to be careful here because I know one of the local DJs quite well.

As for getting checked by customs. I once spent half an hour in that little room they take you to. Didn't have to touch my toes though. But the ba$tards did take a radio off me.

I'll probably take a flight into Teesside and then take the train to Newcastle. I know that if I don't book it soon I could end up on the bus, yet again. I expect to travel in July.

Well, you enter a place, you listen out for what's sounding inside and you enter or leave for anothar place. Generally speaking there's a place for everyone :)

I went to a club called Lemon I think with the bar being downstairs. Was open until 5am.Drink prices were decent enough and the crowd seemed ok too. Loads of lookers in there.Went back the following night too. Before that we went to a bar in the old town. Cant remember the name of it but it had the barcardi breezer logo all over its walls. Good relaxed athmosphere in there too altough I was amazed that the beer was more expensive than in lemon which was open till 5

Hello! I don't know if I am on the right place, but I am planning to visit Warsaw from 20 march to 23-24 march this year. I did not find much information about clubs and bars and other places in Warsaw, so I would like if somebody could help me with this.

Also, there will be 2 of us coming to this trip (we are from Bratislava and from Prague) and it could be fine if we found 2 nice ladies from Warsaw that could guide us to some interesting places :)

what about some oldies music clubs in Warsaw that are open on Thursday? hm?
