Unfortunately Lukasz, these people have always existed and they are in the minority

Before cheap air travel, they invaded British seaside resorts.....I grew up in a seaside holiday town and stag parties would turn up in buses..........we hated them, they would cause trouble and damage and make it very unpleasant for local people to go out in their own town

Perhaps we should cull them

This year law has changed in Krakow and it is less liberal, situation is still better than in Prague and Krakow preferes rather to be cultural capital of Poland than ... as I know there will be special security in old market to hold everything in order ... normal tourists will have easier life, citizens will be more "relaxed" and I think most of English people will be happy when some group of people will stop destroing their reputation.

Excellent !

My Polish friend who lives in Krakow told me, when I first came to Poland in June 2007, how annoying those people were. I'm glad there was repression against the phenomenen. Indeed, when I came back last Ferbuary I saw less of these ********.

My God, "to go to another country and party because the beer is cheaper" really tells a lot on the kind of people who do that. And it often goes together with "their girls are easy". WRONG.

There is one problem in Krakow, it isn't so easy to buy drugs on streets, in Prague it is very easy.

In Prague sex-business in much more developed ...

Now the law will be more strict, I hope this kind of people will just come back to Prague or move somewhere ealse. 2 seasons is enought. Krakow will be capital of Polish culture and more sophisticated tourists will enjoy it. What is important people have learned how to react ...

what is he trying to learn?

I have been talking about normal people, who came here to teach English, they like Krakow, they enjoy its heritage... not about this dumb guy form pic.

as I know Poles like to go to Lwow to have a party for resonable money, as I know nobody complains there.

Finaly I think this 2 years episode goes to the end (I hope so)

ROLF...

The English are well known for getting their kit off in public, the first bit of sunshine and thats it...it all comes off...

As long as the message goes out strong and clear that bad behaviour will not be tolerated, then it will be all good

yes, i have heard it often and have seen it also on TV. Sad but real. Some of them make a lot of mess in pubs, others are walking along the street naked... and then pay for every damage to make the owner silent.

of course :)

YES. Don't go to Krakow.
Hopefully some of my former friends over there will be around to crack your skulls if you start acting like typical drunk Western twats.

Very true Lukasz. I have been visiting Kraków to family for more than 25 years and watched as fast food outlets and even a sex shop on Ulica Florianska opened business and unwittingly damaged the reputation of the old central city.

Now I am disheartened when people who I work with laugh about their visits for the cheap beer and prostitutes.
They show no respect, yet demand respect from others by threat of violence.
Maybe that if they were told to pay double or treble price, then they will go to Włoch na przykład

I'm going to a mate's stag party in a couple of weeks. Rather sensibly, we chose Milton Keynes for the skydiving-simulator and St. Albans for the pubs. I'll save going to Krakow for another time. That is partly because we are sensible people, partly because none of us have any money, and partly because I'd rather go to Krakow on my own and not with a bunch of p!ssheads. Then I'd get a chance to see what there is to see there.

Poland has this wonderful institution called the Drunk Tank. Perhaps if local police were a little more willing to use this for foreigners, the problem would be solved!

Well I'm on my second visit to Krakow next month and hopefully the dickheads will be few and far between. Last time the weather was not so good for taking off clothes (although it would have perhaps stopped the idiots breeding)

I think the authorities need to get tough or lose the well-behaved tourists. Dublin discovered this some time ago.

I drank my fair share last year in Poland but hopefully managed to enhance the UK reputation rather than reinforce the stereotype.

I must admit I do like to stay away from places where the English or Americans dominate. Something good about being the only foreigner in the place.

And if any stag people want to ruin my sleep at the hotel, they'll need some good health insurance!

When I was there, I behaved myself! And what's more, I never spoke a word of English either... so there goes the stereotype of British tourists in Poland! lol :)

mind you, being a non-drinking English-born Pole does mean I cheated a little. <g> :)

and some people like weeing on them too ;-)

Since the arrival of cheap flights and the discovery by the masses that Eastern Europe has cheap beer its attracted these idiots....you cant avoid them no matter how far you get away from the centre, they seem to penetrate every square inch, I have to say it wasnt the English or the kilt wearing Scots I had a problem with when i was in Krakow it was the pervy loud Italians...ewwwww

Yet, we cannot deny them their good sense of humor.

We can question their dress sence though...No?

Hi there, my first post! It's reading stuff like this that worries me about stereotyping, though I can fully understand why. I am off to Krakow on a stag do in a couple of weeks. There will be 16 of us, ages 35-40ish, I have read elsewhere on the internet that there is a crackdown on British Stag groups in Krakow, for example some pubs and clubs not letting all male British groups in. Again I can understand this as there is an obvious British culture when it comes to drinking and being overly rowdy.

This will be my fourth visit, the last two with my girlfriend and a month ago. I absolutely love the city and cant get enough of the culture (and great food!). Hoping to explore the Jewish Quater a bit more this time.

The worry that I have is how we will get on in Krakow and how many places wont let us in. We are not into wearing the same t-shirts/shirts, getting too drunk, upsetting locals etc. The first time we came (6 of us) we thoroughly enjoyed the restaurants, trips out and taking in as much culture as we could. I'm armed with a number of guides and planning on visiting some museums, especially the Archaeology one, couldnt find it last time! To be honest it would be nice to avoid the other British stags there.

Will we get barred from places for just being British (which I've seen mentioned) or if we were simply too plastered (which could be any nationality and something we dont do anyway)? Any recommendations for bars and restaurants that will accept a group of 16?

I'm hoping to book a large table at the Wierzynek restaurant, been there each time I've been and love it.

Thanks for any advice given,

Mike

Make sure you don't look like your enjoying yourself too much. It has been known to upset the locals.

It's quite a large group but your age group should favour you. I'd imagine that you won't have much problems unless you plan on being loutish :) It's really the drunken, disorderly "younger" stag parties that they are cracking down on. I imagine if you are planning a meal and then some drinks it will be fine. :)

You're better off sticking to the irish pubs that are used to accepting such large groups of men - the Irish Embassy, Irish Arms etc. I read in the local paper a few weeks ago that the local restaurateurs and bar owners are not going to serve people who are 'inappropriately' dressed, and the police are going to clamp down on nakedness in public. Shame they weren't around last Saturday on the Rynek when I saw one tosser doing naked star jumps while his mates cheered him on from the bar...

Ironic how the British are known for being prudes! Still, unacceptable behaviour imo.
