White water rafting is nothing short of spectacular. Racing through grade five rapids desperately holding on to your oars so that you and the lads don’t find yourselves up a brown creek without a paddle. You’ll need to work as a team on this totally exhilarating ride which is a sure fire winner with any stag party.

Where to Head...
Very much the party district Vínohrady features a huge beer garden as well as great bars, clubs and restaurants.
Zizkov is reputed to have more bars per capita than any other city in Europe. That fact alone makes it well worth a visit for any group of travelling stags.
Beer Spa – An entire spa where the treatments and therapies are all enhanced with beer. Now while you might think "Well that’s just a pub isn’t it?" No, this really is a beer based spa. Brilliant! Read more...
"…but is it art?" – Prague has some amazing sculptures that really are well worth a nose at. Gather the lads round for a few stag weekend snaps.
Per capita, the Czech Republic consumes more beer than any other nation on the planet. They even have a beer museum. Now THAT’S what you call "pub trivia"!
A Taste of Prague
Eats - Pizza Nuova. All you can eat pizza on a quite spectacular scale. Fantastic food and a nifty colour coded, ordering system means food will keep coming to your table until you just can’t take anymore.
Drinks - Czech beer is toasted worldwide. However if you want to try something a little different try order some Becherovka, it’s not for the faint hearted at 38% ABV.
On Ya Bike! Getting Around Prague
Getting into Prague from the airport is very easy with regular buses which are much less expensive than taxis. Once in the centre you’ll have no trouble getting around the city, two thirds of Prague residents rely on the excellent public transport system. There’s a metro (underground system), trams and buses.
"Dám si jedno pivo prosím." - I'll have a beer please.
"Ještě jednou, prosím." - Another round, please.
"Zdravi!" – Cheers!
"Všechno zaplatí tento pán." - This gentleman will pay for everything.
"Šplouchá mu na maják." - It's splashing on his lighthouse.
"Moje vznášedlo je plné úhořů." - My hovercraft is full of eels.
Semtex, plastic surgery, robots are all Czech inventions.

Stag do in Prague anyone? Why go...
Skoda means "Pity" in Czech. 'To je Skoda!' = It's a pity.
For so, so many reasons but in short the historic Capital of the Czech Republic has a unique and addictive vibe about it. Amazing pubs, charismatic and trendy bars, rocking nightclubs, gents clubs, fantastic food, top restaurants, casinos, great hotels, incredible beer, some of the Europe’s best micro breweries (which also serve terrific food by the way) and if that wasn’t enough there’s even the occasional oompah band!

Prague ideas, sport & activities
As you’d expect there’s more than enough quality action good enough to rouse the lads out of their slumber after an enthusiastic night on the Pivo. Our target shooting for starters is highly recommended because of the quality of the range and weaponry, and if you still need reviving you could splash about whitewater rafting afterwards! If sport’s your thing you could play or watch football, catching either Slavia Praha or Sparta in action. Still on sport one activity that would be an incredible event if you’re up for it is playing ice hockey, a rare experience. If you’re after something unique and don’t mind a bit of a transfer you and the boys could even enjoy a very unusual event, a beer bath! From crazy to cultural, energetic to easy going, we’ve listed over 30 specially selected activities to choose from. The nights will be big so the activities serve not only to provide a great experience and add some very welcome content to the weekend but they also wake the boys up, get them refreshed for the night ahead and build great momentum. To get you started have a look at our activity recommendations here.
Prague stag weekend scheduling - when to visit...
Truthfully there’s really no bad time to visit the ‘City of a thousand Spires’, it’s that good. High season visitors get great weather, lots of charming alfresco options and a bustling, beautiful city packed with energy; low season it’s colder but there’s the advantage of fewer tourists plus the winter gives it a different kind of atmosphere that’s every bit as appealing and often great deals! There are numerous festivals and celebrations year round, though the bride-to-be might not see the funny side if you plan your trip to coincide with Witches Night (30 April), chances are for a lads weekend the Beer Festival in May just might be one to consider. Genuinely, it’s not a destination that offers any less at different times throughout the year, it’s always a treat to go and the flight schedules (see more below) are consistent.
Where: on location, hanging out & bedding down
In the 1950's the city centre had a "sobering-up station".
Prague’s a decent size Capital and while you’ll be able to negotiate most of the city pretty easily you’ll definitely benefit from being well located. The neighbourhoods to aim for are stunning Stare Mesto (Old Town), Nove Mesto (New Town), Vinohrady, Mala Strana (the Little Quarter) and if you want it a little quieter head over the Vltava River to Hradcany (Castle District). Throughout these entertaining districts you’ll find outstanding pubs, bars, hotels and restaurants, in the centre you’ll find fantastic clubs, casinos and of course the well documented gents clubs. You can see more about ideas for the evening here. Whether it’s staying or going out, each neighbourhood offers something special, knowing the city very well and working with Prague stag groups for over 12 years we have our own favourites and recommendations and we’ll be happy to help you get more out of your trip. Have a squizz at our guide page for more info.

My Koruna: the Prague stag do budget
If you consider first that Prague is the near pinnacle of international stag events the value starts to show up in spades. It’s not the Central European steal it once was but it’s still fantastic value, especially the local pivo (beer)! It really doesn’t have to be expensive but you pay for what you get, (remember cheap can still seem expensive if there’s no value), with our expertise value’s assured we have high quality, professionally supported and ABTA protected packages that start from as little as £119 for 2 nights. Depending on the time of year and how far in advance you book allow £75 to £150 for flights (the longer you leave it the higher the prices), and you'll get a good idea of what you need to get started.
