Comments on: 10 Tips for Staying Safe and Legal in Poland Fri, 16 Feb 2018 20:00:00 +0000 hourly 1 By: Ravi Thu, 14 Sep 2017 14:00:58 +0000 Jess, I have been in Krakow for 15 months in 2015 & 16. It’s a lovely lively city. People are very friendly, efficient transportation, I loved every day in Krakow. You find many students, lots of places to hang out..don’t worry, you will love it..English can be a little hurdle, but all the youngsters are good at it and will surely help you out incase you feel lost anytime..use jakdojade transport app, and keep Google maps handy…you will be fine.. cheers

It is too randomised. If a stripper has a university degree I think that is deserving of higher pay and therefore a point of difference. Do you see? But then how do we know if the degree is legitimate? The ideal is less government involvement, not more. Otherwise, with your statement racism would be a fact not just a left wing magic pill.

By: Jess Mon, 17 Apr 2017 08:14:37 +0000 I promised my Grandmother before she passed that I would visit Poland eventually for her. I love my Babcia very much and my goal is to keep my promise. I want to save the money to visit Krakow with my fiance. Reading this article and these comments I am confused on what actually happens but either way I am excited and cannot wait to visit all the tourist attractions and popular sights, and to try eating at Moo Moo

By: Filip Tue, 04 Apr 2017 15:07:10 +0000 Well regarding the 9th point it is ridiculous but true as I had almost a similar case in St.Petersburg which might states to the fact those two countries Russia and Poland have a lot in common.
Me and my fellas fell out of the local bar Zavist. Yes, we had a good time and were a bit tipsy but not like stone-hammered. This bar is not far from the main railway station so I guess the district is notorious. We stood outside waiting for our cab and had noticed a brawl broke out right across the street. Like in 5 min a police car pulled up and started to break up the fight.
We were like innocent standing apart from all of it but occasionally having looks in that direction. One of the cops got interested in us too and guess what we eventually ended up in a police station, good Lord at least we didnt have to pay any fine.
Conclusion: So stay away from anything u are unfamiliar with in a unknown country!

If the boy can’t handle his booze maybe he shouldn’t be out drinking with men.

By: Big Bopper Thu, 02 Feb 2017 04:25:10 +0000 So let’s see, the moron goes to a tit bar and gets ripped off , and he is surprised?
It’s a business , you retard. Half the world is eating out of dumpsters and you are surprised that the skanks in a tit bar are gonna rob you . You deserve it.

WTF !!!

Jaywalking. It is illegal if there is a crossing less then 100m. It is not usually enforced by the Police very much. Unfortunately when they need to improve their statistics quickly and easily, then they will find a nice spot and go hunting for easy prey. In that case you are screwed. So what we do is we look around for Police before crossing.
There is a taxi company that has an app – its called ICAR. You need internet connection for it to work. Most unethical taxi drivers are at the main rail station. Be careful there.
Drinking and driving.
Its heavily enforced even beyond common sense. Be careful especially in the morning after a binge. The limit in breath is 0.2.
Drinking in public.
It is enforced. Paper bag won’t help. Mixing soda or juice with alcohol in a non alcohol bottle usually is ok as long as you don’t appear obviously drunk.
Being very drunk in public.
The “sobering cells” are not there any more. If you are in condition dangerous for your health, you will be taken to a hospital.

Basically Krakow is a very tourist friendly place. If you behave more or less like a human being you will be ok. Have fun.

By: William S Mon, 28 Nov 2016 06:30:13 +0000 I am a pretty seasoned traveler and I also use the internet a lot so I really can’t blame anyone but myself for my little misadventure. I stopped into the Diamond Gentlemen’s Club a while back while in Krakow. It was of course, at the urging of a couple of “kind” gentlemen who suggested that there were some very cute women downstairs willing to lapdance. After 10 minutes and 360 zloty, I knew it was time to go. I had paid for an hour and so I suggested that perhaps a refund of, say, 200 zloty would be fair….. Nope. I was a bit pissed by this time by the bait and switch that had just occurred and demanded some refund a bit more forcefully…. and the next I know, I was on the street with a face full of mace… It hurt like hell but I laughed in their faces anyway. My advice, as of November 2016, this club is a complete rip off. There are other review sites (search the name and reviews), many men have had similar experiences. My advice is to stay away from the Diamond Gentlemen’s Club.

By: Intercontinental stud Wed, 07 Sep 2016 09:19:08 +0000 I have been to Poland where I had to break Laws #1, 2, 3,4, 8 and 9. Seriously the women are so goddamned pretty why wouldn’t you wanna break some of the laws. I also got “honey trapped” at one point in a strip club but despite my serious drunkenness, had enough brain cells to figure out that I shouldn’t be buying those flirtatious ladies any drinks. They kept touching and kissing me. I had to politely decline each time. Very narrow escape, I believe. Maybe next time I should be more careful, can’t count on luck every time.

It’s becoming very difficult to meet regular Polish ladies as a male foreigner. They just don’t seem that much not into you, unless you’re loaded with cash or plan to stay there much longer (I had been to Poland for just 15 days). But then again, it’s not a Poland problem alone. The growing use of Facebook and smartphones has given way to a new generation of bitches who simply don’t cave in. No pick-up artiste trick works on them.

But yes, Poland is definitely a place where cash works. In my experience, you can just walk up to a girl you liked and tempt her with a 50 Euro banknote. Maybe keep slowly piling up that cash until she caves in. I had to part with nearly 150 Euros before this girl from Czestochowa agreed to make out with in the alley of a popular pub. She wasn’t a prostitute but very sweet. She returned the money after we were done and asked that I help her out with some shopping instead. So we went to the high street together and she bought herself a brown leather handback and some lipsticks, make-up kit etc. followed by an hour at the spa, all paid for by me of course. She kissed me on my lips as a good-bye.
