A Wedding Weekend in Krakow

Wedding Krakow The Betty Stamp

What a weekend! 

Krakow is hands down one of the most beautiful cities I've ever visited. What a gem of a place. The sun was beaming and the main square was constantly buzzing with locals and visitors sprawled out onto the pavements in cafes and restaurants, supping cocktails and wiping plates clean of Polish stew.

We stayed in the stunning Antique Apartments and I highly recommend if you're ever visiting Krakow to stay there! Massive beams, HUGE cosy bed, a bath tub you could swim in, (which I actually forgot to use, mainly because I was too hot!) and views out onto the square below where you can watch the outdoor cinema from your balcony and be a part of the buzz.

We were in Krakow because William's brother was getting married in the Goetz Palace(!) and I have to say, I've never ever been to a wedding like it!

The food...where do I even begin. We were fed on the hour, every hour- and I'm talking main courses. We had a 4 course dinner, then an hour later fish, then duck, then beef stew, all the while with a full on buffet and dessert spread to gorge on nibble to say, I'm the size of a baby elephant now.

The ceremony was in both Polish and English in the most gorgeous chapel, lilac bridesmaids and bows decorated the rooms and we danced until 4am with vodka fuelling us until our feet were nearly falling off.

It was just the most beautiful day with beautiful people and an absolute FEAST for our tummies. Ps, is that not the biggest sausage you've ever seen!?

We had three days after the wedding to explore Krakow further so we headed down to the salt mines which were incredible. 135 metres underground were gigantic statues and chapels built entirely out of the salt. William did a lot of wall licking...

You can actually get married in that chapel and it only costs 5000 zloty (£1000!)

I also got to do my favourite thing abroad....visit FOREIGN SUPERMARKETS! That's utter happiness right there...

I love that I rarely post photos of myself on here and the one time I do, I post one where I look like a massive creep!

Safe to say I've been drinking smoothies and juices since returning home to detox my insides! 

Krakow treated us SO well and we're planning to return in February when it's all snowy and we can cwtch in one of the hundreds of cosy cafes. 

Has anyone been in the Winter? Any recommendations?

Enjoy your weekends!

Wow Wow Wow Betty, what a wedding! In a palace as well! Krakow looks as though it was amazing too, I just love those beautiful 'dalmation' horses.

The salt mines look incredible! They look like something you would see in a movie. Krakow is definitely on my travel wishlist. It looks chock full of history and beautiful architecture.

I actually visited Kraków for a wedding on Valentine's Day a few years ago. It was very cold, and it even snowed! We also had the pleasure of being fed a different course of food every hour, on the hour. I think I lasted until 3.00am! Lots of vodka and dancing too :) Glad you had a fab time! Angharad x

Last year, I felt we got really lucky when we found out this space was available on the date we wanted - and now I know just how lucky we were! I can't recommend these New York wedding venues enough! I have nothing but positive things to say about this place.
