One, a banking lawyer from London, has already taken up the matter with the UK authorities and with his bank. A letter from his bank confirmed that transactions totaling 12, GBP had been made in just three and a half hours, all to the company to which his authorised spending at the club had been charged. However, the letter said that he would not be refunded as he had been present at the time that the transactions were made. The transactions took place between The man also wrote to the city of Krakow. He received a sympathetic response but was advised that the council could not help him.
While you're here...
Where is Krakow nightlife?
Based on people's experiences, I would have given this criminal club negative stars. My god, I had lucky escape. I was there in later December on solo trip. Late at night by square, a lady started walking beside me and was offering discounted drinks at VIP club. Though I kept walking but she kept pestering me. I did not know that my route to my hotel was close to this scam club.
What is Krakow nightlife like?
And most importantly — no strip club will rip you off if you are assisted by the Rep who is looking after your group. On average prices in Poland are three cheaper than UK prices. For what you would spend on one night out in London you can spend two or three days and nights full of entertainment in Krakow. What about the safety? As a result Krakow is safe, and the authorities do their best to make sure it stays that way. In general there's less trouble here on a weekend than there is in most places back home. That said common sense is a virtue and if you look for trouble, you will likely find one.
I found the Market Square very stylish, beautiful I can't call it historic because the buildings were obviously rebuilt post-WW2 , clean and I felt pretty safe. There are regular patrols by police and most Polish people in Krakow speak decent English, the young people speaking fluent English in the main. The shops are a bit of a mish-mash of tourist trap junk and vastly overpriced tat. Krakow has many small independent shops and if you have the time, walk through and chose what you wish. There is an excellent shopping centre next to the railway station too, which is about metres away. Polish city centres have a problem with hawkers for strip clubs approaching you. It is not as bad in Krakow as other cities that I have visited as they only appear in the evening and don't appear to approach men with families but I find it annoying and I have heard tales of gullible men being tricked into entering Mafia clip joints, being hit with atrocious bills and the police saying that they have to pay up. Say no thank you and walk away, and they will leave you alone for a while.
