When: the best of times - when to visit Prague
Truthfully there’s really no bad time to visit the ‘City of a thousand Spires’, it’s that good.

There are 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 Prague stag do event 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!

What: Prague stag weekend sport & activities
You’ll be pleased to know there’s more than enough quality action good enough to rouse the lads out of their slumber after an enthusiastic night on the Pivo. Target shooting for starters is particularly awesome because of the quality of weaponry – that should wake you up 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 or Sparta Prague 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 you and the boys wouldn’t soon forget. If you fear being without refreshment for too long and don’t mind a bit of a transfer you and the boys could even enjoy a very unusual event, a beer bath!

My Koruna: the budget

It’s not the Central European steal it once was but it’s still fantastic value, especially the local ales! It really doesn’t have to be expensive but you pay for what you get, (remember cheap can end up 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. Planned well and with good notice you should be able to get a very decent itinerary, accommodation, airport transfers and flights sorted for under £300. Even at £400 it’s likely Prague will still be one of the very best (and greatest value) stag weekends you’ll ever go on.
