Tips, Hints & Clues for Visitors to Krakow

Tips are welcome throughout the tourist service sector. Yet in Krakow only waiters rightly expect extra payment, i.e. roughly one tenth above the charged sum, in appreciation of satisfactory service. Simply leave cash on the table or round up the bill, saying “Raeshty nye chaeba” (“Keep the rest”).
