We were very interested to find in Krakow and Poland generally that liquor stores are called Alkohole.
The Polish words for alcohol are “alkohol” and “spirytus”, so it’s not a direct translation of that.
Is it just a play on words, or does it mean a hole/cave where you buy alcohol?
Whatever the meaning, you find them all over and they are usually well-stocked with reasonably-priced beers and various spirits, but not much wine is available there. The ones that we went into near the main square were quite small actually, and are in old buildings with lovely facades, and sometimes the old buildings that had lovely facades but are in need of some repair! (Still a left-over of the Communist times).
So different to huge, stand-along buildings in the USA!
