There’s nothing like a Prague stag weekend. This cool and crazy capital city has a bar and club scene that is as notorious as its infamy suggests. If you thought Amsterdam was wild, you’ve seen nothing yet…
Prague’s nightlife veers from the tourist-filled Old Town to the lively neighbourhood bars. Prague is an old soul at heart; boasting hidden and traditional beer halls, rooftop bars and one venue, Hangar Bar, inspired by aviation from the 40s and 60s. The waitresses are dressed as air stewardesses, there’s a body of an aircraft by the bar and the drinks are cheap (a running theme in Prague). However, the cobbled streets of Wenceslas Square and Charles Bridge are where you’ll spend most of your time. Wenceslas Square is the main nightlife hub of the city, with all of the city’s famous restaurants, bars, clubs, rubbing shoulders with hen parties, loud Brits and a huge amount of people looking for their next beer. Wenceslas Square is also dominated by Prague’s best strip clubs (now we’re talking) – Hot Peppers and Goldfingers, home to the strip club special – we’ll let you know what that is in time - to name a few. This city has earned its rep as the Stag Night Capital of Europe.
The Czech Republic is the no.1 drinking capital in the world. People in Prague drink more beer per capita than anywhere else in the world; 160 litres per person, every year. You can expect a healthy dose of Czech Pilsner on your stag do, as beer is served in almost every venue in the city, at all times. The most famous Czech brewery, U Fleku – a pilgrimage for beer lovers – is in Prague, as is the country’s second biggest brewery, Staropramen. You’ll get gallons of beer for your money in Prague – notorious for cheap booze and gorgeous women… Back on the subject of beer, a standard bottle will cost around 35czk-40czk (£1.20-£1.30), and a pint of local brew is even less (around 90p). Or, you can spend all of your koruna at the Czech Beer Festival – Prague’s legendary rival to Oktoberfest, and one that lasts a massive 17 days. There are over 150 different craft brews available, women dressed as bier maids and traditional food to soak up the hops.
We’ve touched on the price of beer in the Czech capital, but Prague actually tops the list of the cheapest cities in Europe. It knocked its Eastern European rival, Budapest, to number two, with an accumulative cost of £28 for twelve drinks (twelve…) according to The Telegraph – including a glass of wine, vodka and orange and a brandy. This is our no.2 stag do destination for a reason.
Stag weekends and pranks are a match made in heaven. You’ll venture where no man has been before, and your friends will be right behind you… pushing you. Prague is the pinnacle of all stag do pranks, namely the stag arrest - our most popular option. This is cruel, terrifying and just a bit evil (we like you), and will see the stag arrested and taken away in a police car… straight to a strip club or even private boat (flash). There will be handcuffs, women and booze – standard stag weekend to us…
You can’t go all the way to Prague and not pick up an AK47. Shooting is one of the top activities in the whole country, with more armoury than you’ll have seen in Die Hard. We have a vast range of shooting options, boasting a massive selection of weaponry; Glocks, Kalashnikovs, revolvers, magnums, snipers, rifles, pistols and shotguns. Our packages vary, from 62 bullets each on five lethal weapons, to 25 rounds on the AK47 – the original assault rifle – and you’ll go to an authentic shooting range, often manned by ex-military hardnuts. This is what stag do dreams were made of.
On the subject of activities, our stag options in Prague top the lot. You’ve got the usual – quad biking, beer bikes, clay pigeon shooting, white water rafting etc., but we’ll raise you a military fighter jet… Or, perhaps, a toboggan run down Prague’s biggest hill? In fact, let’s just eat sushi off a naked woman, have a mud fight with lesbian strippers, bungee jump, indoor skydive and shoot an AK47 – back in time for that flight in the jet. Prague activities have gone down the pub and got smashed – they’re insane. This is a stag do built on excitement and good old bravado – you’ll never forget your Prague stag weekend.
We’re not ones to brag, but our accommodation in Prague is first class. Stay in 5-star hotels – Kings Court to name one of the best – 4-star and 3-star options, or find an excellent base in one of our many hostels in the centre of Prague. We’ve got it all…
The essentials are what will get you to and from Prague in one piece... This city is easy to fly to, with Václav Havel Airport Prague serving over 16 million passengers in 2016 alone. It’s the biggest airport in the whole of the Czech Republic, just 20k north of the city centre. The Old Town, Wenceslas Square and Charles Bridge are all within walking distance, but public transport is reasonable too. You’ve got the tram, metro and even taxis to get around, and they won’t break the bank. A ticket for the subway, bus and tram will cost you 32czk (£1) for 90 minutes. It’s no surprise why this place is so popular.
Now we've sold you on Prague (we expected it) - you can find out even more in our Stag's guide to Prague and plan the ultimate stag do. What are you waiting for?!
