Propaganda Pub Tips (4)

Propaganda: Duck the Darts!

You will find this bar mentioned in just about every Krakow guidebook and rightly so too, though in my opinion, less so for the communist-era junk which gives the place its "theme", than for the simple fact that it is a chill, slightly off-beat place to hang out over a few beers and enjoy the atmosphere.

In the early evening the local sport is electronic darts, along with synchronised vodka drinking, both equally competitive. But beware that the dartboard is situated immediately after the entrance - no problem for me: "It just goes in one ear and out the other!"

As the evening progresses the bar fills, the music (plenty of classic rock) is cranked up, the fug of cigarette smoke thickens, the beers go down and before you know it you've missed the last bus - such is life, at least taxis are cheap, even at 5 am!!

Dress Code Definitely a dress down sort of place in removable layers as the place gets busy!

Propaganda Pub: cool place to hang out

This was one of my favourite bars we when to in Krakow, it is a crowed smoky bar in the kazimierz area. The walls are full of communist propaganda posters. Along with old equipment. There are hammers made from chicken wire hanging from the ceiling. A great little bar well worth a visit.

If I moved to Krakow this pub would probably become my local.

Propaganda seems a strange place at first with its retro communist theme. The walls are covered in old communist propaganda posters and there are old fashioned TVs, radios and a large picture of Lenin. From the outside it looks just like any other Polish pub and there is a terrace with views of the Jewish temple.

Zywiec was the only Polish beer they had on draught so we went for that and sat at a table near the back. There were a few Polish people playing darts and an English couple at the bar. It seemed a very hip locals place and we felt completely at home. When the couch at the back came free we made our way there and took and settled in for the evening.

Propaganda Pub: Step back in time

A local place, with the walls full of old fashioned items.

Dart, decent music, good place to mingle with the students and younger people in Krakow.
