Stag Do Destination Guide: Prague
Prague is an incredible stag do destination, a party capital, a European city so lively that the Rolling Stones loved it! True Story: The Rolling Stones paid their stage lighting technician £32,000 to light up the Castle, so they could see it whilst partying at night.
Crazily Pointless Facts About Prague

Quick postcode lesson:
There are 10 districts to Prague all numbered; Prague 1 (central), Prague 2, Prague 3 etc. as shown here - that's it lesson over, now that wasn't painful was it! When booking your accommodation Prague 1 is the best place to be, however there is a very good tram service which goes from 4:30am to midnight, a day's pass costs around £3.00 and it covers the majority of the city.
So what makes Prague appealing to British stag parties?
DesignaVenture has lots of stag do packages in Prague with or without flights.
Beer is cheap
First of all it's cheap, if you drink in the right places you can get a pint for around £1.50, go to the Irish or posh bars you'll pay closer to British beer prices or more, so head to the old town or local bars and your beer will cost you a fraction of the price.
Nightlife is incredible
There are more clubs than you can imagine, clubs for every taste from live rock bands (Lucerna Music Bar, Klub 007 etc.), 80s music (Cafe 80s) to brilliant popular clubs including Duplex in Wenceslas Square, One Club Prague in the old town and Sasazu, an incredible house music club in Prague 7.
Prague is also home to the largest nightclub in mainland Europe called Karlovy Lazne, 5 floors of incredible beats, bars and beautiful ladies - it's situated in the centre of Prague, 40 metres from Charles Bridge.
There are literally too many bars to mention, all within easy walking distance of Prague 1. In my mind the best way to explore the bars and clubs is to get a guide for your first night. DesignaVenture's guided bar and club tours in Prague are great value for money where you're guided by female guides who know Prague like the back of their hand.
Top Tip: Book a guided bar / club tour for your first night, quiz your guide for on where to go and then all your other nights you won't waste time checking out bad bars or clubs.
Prague is also home to an Ice Pub called Ice Pub Prague, I think they got the name right, if you've never been to an ice bar or pub before, it's basically a bar where everything is made of ice, from the bar itself to the seats, sculptures and the glass that you have your beer in.
There are loads of fantastic restaurants in the centre of Prague, serving up an array of international cuisine from Brazilian BBQ houses to amazing local Czech restaurants serving up delicacies such as Pork knee, if you haven't tried it, don't knock it it's like Ham Hock!
Again depending on where you dine, eating out is fairly cheap however there are some really top notch restaurants in Prague, did you know that Prague was the first post communist country to get a Michelin Star restaurant? Well you do now.
Activity Ideas To Do In The Day
You can find a full list of DesignaVenture's Prague stag do ideas and activities on their website, you can either build your own stag weekend with our tool or pick a popular package or activity.
If you just want to go for a walk to explore this amazing city, you can always go and see the largest castle in the world or take a walk over Charles Bridge (which apparently is haunted). Prague is also home to one of the narrowest streets in the world at just 50cm wide, it has pedestrian traffic lights so there is not head on pedestrian smashes in the middle.
And then there is the famous Astronomical Clock Tower in the centre of the old town, a must see even if it is between bars.
Prague uses Czech Crowns which there are roughly (at time of post) 29 Czech Crown to the pound sterling.
Prague is a brilliant stag destination and if you haven't been, you have to go!
