The most touristy part of Krakow which has the most restaurants with most of them quite international.
The former Jewish district, it has a huge number of restaurants and bars. It is the favourite spot for locals and very lively in the evenings.
Piasek is the up and coming area with the new Tytano which used to be an old tobacco factory. The area also has quite a few street food spots.
Restaurants, Food & Drinking Spots in Krakow
A great cafe for breakfast with amazing omelettes. They also had a good selection of teas. It is very close to St. Florian’s Gate.
A bakery with amazing bread, cakes and good teas, it is a perfect spot for a break between exploring the city.
While it is not the traditional milk bar but it is a great place for cheap but amazing breakfast. They also take cards and be careful while ordering, the portions are huge. Quick, cheap and easy is the mantra here.
Palc Nowy is the square in the middle of Kazimierz and a small shop sells Zapiekanka there. It is a half baguette topped with a lot of stuff, it is baguette pizza and very yummy. It is a must-eat.
These two riverside bars are located on ships with outdoor and riverside seating. (Do bring mosquito repellant though, in summer, the mosquitos here are brutal).
This old tobacco factory has been converted to a massive social space with lots of drinking and eating places. It is the best spot in the city to be on the weekend.
Gay Nightlife In Krakow/ Gay Places In Krakow
Krakow has quite a few gay and LGBT establishments. I visited during the Coronavirus times and didn’t want to risk contracting the virus, I mostly stayed away but speaking to the locals here is a snapshot of the establishments in Krakow.
There is no particular gay area or gaybourhood in Krakow but most gay places in Krakow aren’t too far from each other with most of them at a walking distance from Old Town.
This is a bar/club with dark rooms and karaoke. It is very lively on the weekends.
A trendy bar close to the Old Market Square. It is quite trendy but small. I really liked their lighting. The area on the upper floor is tiny but there is more room downstairs, very chic.
The biggest club with quite a few rooms and dance floor and an outdoor area as well. It is located between Kazimierz and Old Town.
A cruising bar in Krakow at the corner of Kazimierz district. I heard mixed reviews but it is definitely more of a cruising spot than a chatty or dance place.
