yeah that place is a complete dump!! most ex-pats avoid it like the plague. shame, because if you would have turned right at the corner, you would have found one off the most chilled bars in Krakow, RE
Cheers, I'll mention that to my ex-pat friend and see if he knows of the place.
the bull is nice, not my place though, i tend to go to nic nowego or pauza. cool, chilled, hang out places.
The Bull was quite a giggle, but I did leave at about 8pm. From what I heard from a couple I'd got friendly with, it got a bit pissed uk brits doing the pushy shovey later, which is a pity.
you are right in saying that Krakow is starting to loose its charm, but don't feel down, come during the winter, when the tourists go and the town really comes alive:D
I've never actually been there in the summer. Last year it was the beginning of December, and weirdly warm. This year it was the middle of November and 8 inches deep in snow!
I also got out of the town and out into the country to stay with a Polish friend of mine and her family. That was quite interesting, staying in a little Polish mining town where I was the only non-Pole. Actually I think I was the only non-villager! No complains though, I think I might be addicted to Polish cheesecake now. :-D
I made it down to Zakopane on the coach, and enjoyed the scenery, the pierogi (my Polish spelling sucks!), and the hot beer with fruit juice. I'm going to go back for a Long weekend in January and this time I'm bringing my snowboard. Look out below! :o)
