10 Must Read Tips Before your Stag do in Prague
Prague is officially one of Europe’s favourite stag do destinations. The cheap booze, the great nightlife, incredible history and culture and of course the stunning local ladies, all add up to a recipe for stag success.
But before you head off on your stag adventure in the bohemian capital, Eventhuse has created a comprehensive list of tips that will help you on your way to the best stag weekend ever!
1. Book flights in advance
We all know what airlines are like. You check the tickets in advance and they’re dirt cheap, but head back to the site a month or two later and the prices will have skyrocketed. Prague is a popular stag destination and budget flights are in demand. Check for tickets well in advance to ensure you don’t have to pay through the roof.
2. Think about travelling off season
As we’ve already mentioned (this is related to Point 1!), Prague is a popular destination, and that’s not just for stag group’s looking to get their party on in the capital. The city is also a tourist hot-spot, meaning peak times like Easter, summer and Christmas can get pretty busy. Think about heading over outside peak travel seasons or school holidays to make sure you aren’t surrounded by snap happy tourists.
3. Check out the alternative nightlife
There are many reasons why Prague is considered such a stag haven, and one of those reasons is the city’s epic party culture. When it comes to nightlife, Prague really does offer something for everyone, with fancy cocktail bars, lads footie pubs and all-night clubs. But for stags looking for something a little more unique, the city has an awesome underground, alternative nightlife scene that is well worth uncovering.
4. Find the perfect accommodation
Finding the perfect accommodation for a group of stag lads can be tricky, especially in a city like Prague. Rather than splitting the group up between different hotels (which is less likely to happen if you book early), we recommend finding accommodation that will fit you all and give you the freedom to come and go as you please, wake up when you want and generally get a bit rowdy. Sounds like your kind of place? We can help!
5. Try the local beer
Prague, and indeed the whole of the Czech Republic, is famous for brewing some of the world’s best beers, and a stag do in Prague would be incomplete without hitting the pubs to taste the local brews. Another great way to get stuck into the beer culture is by heading on a brewery tour to learn how the masters brew to perfection, or visiting the beer museum where you can opt for a group beer tasting.
6. Bring a camera
Prague is stunningly beautiful, with photo opportunities at every corner and Instagram worthy snaps that will have your mates back home green with envy. Whether you are an avid photographer or a keen amateur, don’t forget to bring a camera to capture some of those once-in-a-lifetime stag moments forever.
7. Soak up the local culture
We know that stags are usually all about the booze, the clubs and the ladies, but Prague is also a fascinating cultural and historical hotspot, with plenty to keep you occupied if you need a break from the alcohol.
8. Taste the delicious cuisine
Instead of spending the whole week cramming in as much fast food and junk as you can, why not take the opportunity to chow down on some traditional delicacies from the Czech Republic. Local food is cheap and delicious and offers a great insight into the local culture. Give it a go. You won’t regret it.
9. Get out and get active
In and around Prague, there are some really great options for getting active and getting outdoors. Unique stag activities in Prague will enhance your weekend. Quad biking, river rafting and tank driving, are just a short drive away from the capital so you’ll be back in time for beer o’clock!
10. Test your tolerance with an absinthe night
Once the bohemian capital of Europe, Prague is home to one of the most potent spirits in the world – absinthe. Known to make people hallucinate, this drink is illegal in a large number of countries and its 40-90 percent alcohol content means you need to have a good tolerance to really take it like a man. See how many you can down before you see the famous green absinthe fairy.
