This is my second post on Polish prices. This time, I focused on alcohol and cigarettes as they seem to be of most interest to many tourists in Poland. At the same time, they will probably be a bargain for most of you coming down here from western countries. Hopefully, you will get the feel for what the prices are in Poland for those items.


In one of my previous posts, I have gone through the Polish prices of basic groceries. Those will be useful if you’re travelling on a lower budget and intend to cook on your own and buy things in typical grocery stores.

However, travelling is also about fun and I know that there are many young people visiting Poland for stag parties and just fun times in general. One of the reasons are the Polish prices for alcohol, both in bars and in stores. In the list below, I have provided average prices (figured out by me – this isn’t any official market research folks!) for alcohol in cigarettes as you can find them in stores.

As you can see, Polish made alcohol is really cheap, especially Polish vodka although you can also find Polish gin, rum, whiskey and other sorts of hard liquor which are also way cheaper than the established, international brands. They are quite good, and you don’t have to worry about the quality – everything you buy in stores is “healthy” (in the sense that it is good alcohol – you still better enjoy it responsibly, as all the advertisements say).

Also, beer is really cheap. If you’re uncertain what kind of beer to get, check out my article on Polish beer brands. They are all pretty good, and the Polish prices on beer really seem to be a bargain.

So here’s the list:

I hope that this is helpful in any way. Just remember – those are Polish prices which you will find in a grocery or liquor store. If you go to a bar or restaurant, they may triple.
