Prague or Bratislava for my Stag Do?

That is a perfectly good question , “Prague or Bratislava for my stag do?”.

Lets start with a quick geography lesson.

Bratislava is the capital of Slovak Republic and Prague is the capital of the Czech Republic. These two countries used to be joined in a mutual matrimony in a huge country called Czechoslovakia.  

On the 01st January 1993 the two countries decided to split into two, in a peaceful dissolution creating two amazing countries and two incredible capitals and funny enough, both top stag destinations.

Right now the Geography lesson is over let’s get down to business.

Bratislava is a fantastic city to go out in, making it a stag do must. It has a young crowd full of students and graduates, creating a friendly and lively atmosphere.

Most of the clubs and bars in Bratislava centre are all within easy walking distance of each other and the ladies, oh the ladies…..

Obviously you will be window shopping (not like Amsterdam, that is), as you will all have wags at home, but it still makes a stag do, when you're surrounded by beautiful women!

I am not being a bit of a lad here, I have been to Bratislava and Prague and they both have an extremely high ratio of amazingly beautiful women, fact.

The difference I found between the both cities is Prague has a more liberal view when it comes to lap dancing clubs. The other difference is Prague’s City Centre is much bigger.

Prague by night is centred around the picturesque old town and Wenceslas Square. You will find loads of banging bars and clubs with a friendly and lively atmosphere. 

In both capital cities you will find an array of fantastic and unique stag activities including; shooting real guns (pistols, machine guns and AK-47’s), Bobsleighing, karting, rafting, Absinth Nights, Naked Mud 
Wrestling (two women and maybe the stag not the whole stag party) and other classics such as paintball and quad biking etc.

In all of DesignaVenture’s abroad stag destinations we always recommend you have a guided bar crawl on your first night, this is also the case for Prague and Bratislava.

Even though you can walk around both cities at night quite easily, it’s always best to have a guide or two. They will take you around all the best bars and clubs on your first night, this will help you get your bearings for the rest of the stag weekend – it works a treat.

So if you are looking for an answer on which destination you should you choose between Prague and Bratislava, unfortunately like Switzerland, I am staying neutral.

Having been to both destinations on different stag dos they are both absolutely brilliant stag destinations.

Top 10 Stag Do Pranks

A stag do and pranks go together like Ant & Dec, Cheese & Biscuits and the Government and taxes.

Below you will find our top 10 stag do pranks we have compiled from all of our customer stories, and are in no particular order.

Visa, What Visa?
If you have a hermit stag that thinks going on holiday is leaving the county this stag do prank is for you.

What you need is:
  • A stag do Abroad
  • Someone who is good on Photoshop
  • Everyone in on the joke (except the stag)

The Photoshop geek will need to design a visa for the country you are holding the stag do in and print off a copy for each party member with their individual names on (except the stag).

At the airport in the check in line everyone bring out their pretend visas and watch the stags heart sink. 

The trick is to keep it going all the way through the stag do, telling him to keep his head down when walking past the police.

In most Old Eastern Bloc countries you can buy this prank (we sell it on the DesignaVenture website), where the police stop your transfer coach, they get onboard and check everyone’s passports, they then take the stag off to be interrogated. This interrogation usually consists of Vodka and a Lap dancer, but he only gets the nice treatment after a bit of bad!

Handcuffed to a littler person
Extremely current, every stag and his dog is looking for a little person to be handcuffed to.

Leg in Plaster
First night of the stag weekend and the groom is a little worse for wears (helped by the stag party plying him with drink) and he goes to sleep. Plaster of Paris at the ready and plaster his leg up.

In the morning when he wakes, tell him he was dancing on a table and fell off and you had to take him to hospital as he couldn’t move his leg.

See how long you can get him to keep it on for; the honeymoon is a bit cruel.

Make him a suffragette
Handcuff him to the railings it might be an oldie but it’s definitely a goody.

Dress the Stag Up
This is by far the most popular stag do prank, on a Saturday night in all major popular stag do destinations stags dressed like old ladies, young ladies, Mankinis, super heroes, in wedding dresses - you get the picture. 

Let’s Pretend
Again this involves getting the stag steaming and sleeping. Once he wakes up and looks in the mirror he finds a fake Maori style face tattoo. The keyword in this stag do prank is FAKE, let’s not get silly now.

The Gaffer
This is definitely one for the builders amongst the stag party, bring your strongest gaffer tape and tape the poor un-expecting stag to something solid and pap him with your smart phones.

Race to the Nightclub
On the beach in Bournemouth one of our poor stags was stripped and given the choice of shoes or boxer shorts. He then had 10 minutes to get to the nightclub where he pick up his clothes back. He made it, with a red face and sore feet!

Mars Bar
This is another one of those 'get the stag drunk and send him to bed', when he awakes he will find a mars bar pushed between his butt cheeks from the night before, so the whole thing will be a gooey brown mess.

I feel sorry for the fella who has to place the mars bar!

Remember permanent physical or mental scares are not cool, so prank responsibly people.
