WHAT IS Krakow Vodka Tour?
Did you know that Polish vodka is widely believed to be one of the best in the world? We certainly think so! If you’d like to find out for yourself, you should definitely join us for our vodka and culture tour. On this 3-hour walking, talking, and drinking tour we’ll take you to 4 local pubs and restaurants, sampling quality vodkas (7 types) paired with Polish vodka food (4-5 food tasting).
The Polish people often drink vodka in shots, and sometimes use the expression “dodna I nozdarowye,” which roughly translates to “to the bottom.” It’s not an easy phrase to spell or pronounce, but we’ll work on it during the tour, and you’ll have it down by the end.
We’ll also be discussing the culture that surrounds Polish vodka, and we’ll share some interesting tidbits about the drink. For instance, did you know that no Polish celebration can be held without at least one bottle of vodka? Or that Poles have a secret way of avoiding getting drunk too fast? We’ll share it with you on the tour. Other fun tidbits you’ll learn will include which Polish vodka has been served during Oscar nights, why vodka was used as currency during communism, and what ingredients make the best quality vodka. You’ll learn all this and more as we taste some of the best vodkas Poland has to offer.
Come along with us on this small-group tour and enjoy the most Polish experience of all – sharing good drinks with good friends.
**This is not a pub crawl, and we don’t visit any clubs. We taste quality vodkas along with some food pairings, and we enjoy a pleasant chat.
