Sex in Krakow
Whilst you can find sex in Krakow, the majority of venues that are visible for tourists are quite pricey and can sometimes have a poor reputation for taking advantage of visitors to the city. Whilst this can and does happen in other European cities, it is worth being aware of and pay by cash, where you can, to avoid card fraud.
Though illegal, brothels can be found throughout Krakow in various guises from massage parlours to saunas, solariums and spas to simple bars. They are not always easy to find but you can always ask local taxi drivers to take you to an ‘escort agency’ (agencja towarzyska).
Often just flats above business premises, these brothels often have poor reputations for service, price and accommodation.
Their locations change all the time due to pressures from the authorities and competition from other brothels.
Outside of the city, you can also find some larger sex clubs which may have additional facilities such as a bar and dance floor in addition to private rooms.
Swinging is popular in some parts of Poland, particularly in the capital, but there is not a large scene in Krakow. There is one main club which offers lifestyle evenings.
The Party Club is centrally located in the heart of Krakow and is a popular club for local Polish couples.
They have four themed rooms offering a range of play choices including BDSM as well as a sauna, jacuzzi and dance floor. The crowd is quite a mixed age range with some international visitors in addition to regulars.
Single guys pay 150 PLN and couples 80 PLN (€19).
The club is open Friday and Saturdays from 10.00pm to 3.00am.
