Kraków Expats Directory is a listing of businesses, services, resources, tips, general information and things to do in Kraków, specifically for members of the International Expat community .
Kraków Expats Directory is intended as a solution to the frustration of the frequently repeated questions in the Kraków Expats Facebook Group, where the same questions and issues keep cropping up, and yet because of the limitations of FB, the answers can be hard to find.
WHAT IT’S NOT?
We are not a tourist or news site, we already have many great options available for tourist tips and news, Local Life, KIYP, Karnet, Krakow Post, Cracow Today etc, however there will be some cross over. As Expats we are also looking for things to do in Kraków, and we will also include some ‘newsy’ articles where they relate directly to Expats.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
The intention is to concentrate on services, business and information which have been personally recommended and approved by expats for expats.
Listings which have been personally recommended by expats will have an ‘Expats Approved’ tag.
Businesses and services owners have an option to ‘claim their listing’, which allows them to manage their own listing, adding updated content, images, special offers, events, etc.
Listings managed by the business/services owner have a red tick alongside the name.
There are many businesses who none of us have yet ‘tried and tested’, but may still be of benefit to our expat community. Those business and services will have an opportunity to promote themselves in the directory, and may opt to have a ‘premium listing’, which will be indicated by a ‘Sponsored Ad’ tag.
You can review and add feedback for the business using the review section, please keep any criticism constructive! Any offensive or abusive reviews will be removed, likewise anyone suspected of adding false positive reviews may result in the listing being removed.
Initially content will be added based on personal experience, fellow expat recommendations and in response to questions and discussion on the Kraków Expat Facebook Group, and will consist of:-
- Articles – helpful expat guides, resources, tips & things to do in Kraków for expats
- FAQ’s – section with the most commonly asked Kraków Expat questions
- Community Events – Calendar of expat community events and meetings.
- Listings – Businesses, services, places specifically for expats
- by Location
- By Category (Eating Out), sub-category (Restaurant), type (Sushi)

FUTURE DEVELOPMENT ?
The plan is to operate the directory on two levels, commonly known as a ‘freemium’ model. Standard listings and other content such as Community Events, FAQ’s, Articles, guides and tips etc will be added free of charge, with the view of providing our Kraków International Expat Community, a valuable much needed resource, based on advice, experience and suggestions from experienced expats, locals, and experts.
We will also give other businesses, seeking to offer their services or do business with our expat community, the opportunity to add their business, to add a listing. Any such sponsored ‘paid for’ listing will be highlighted in an effort to maintain integrity and transparency.
In the future I plan to add further features and usability to enhance the directory for the users, our expat community, and for groups, organisations and businesses using the directory.
Some of the features being considered include, front end add event options for community groups and organisations, reservations, bookings and contact with the business directly from the listing – see example, provide businesses an opportunity able to offer discounts, special offers etc directly on their listing page etc.
