Cheap beer and a relaxed attitude to life, set against jaw-dropping scenery: it goes without saying that Prague is well-worth Czeching out.
Prague in a nutshell

Attractions in Prague
Prague is an impossibly photogenic city, from the half-kilometre-long stretch ofCharles Bridgewith its magnificent towers and statues, to the heights of thePetrin Lookout Tower. Climb it for the best views of the Czech capital: from here you’ll seePrague Castle(the largest castle complex in the world) and the bustlingOld Town Square, which hosts some of the biggest Easter and Christmas markets in Europe.
For something more edgy, theSex Machines Museumis a stag highlight, home to over 350 historical objects designed to spice things up in the bedroom. Venture ontoKampa Islandto cruise along theDevil’s Streamon a canal boat tour or write an inspirational message on theLennon Wall, before scaling the mind-bending waves of theDancing Housefor a pilsner on its rooftop bar.
Eating in Prague
Czech food is best described as hearty, rustic fare, cooked to provide comfort during Central Europe’s bitterly cold winters. Traditional restaurants can be found as central asStare Mesto (Old Town), serving piping-hotbeef goulashandsvickova: sirloin steak steeped in double cream, with pillow-softhouskove knedliky(bread dumplings).
WanderingWenceslas Squareis best done with somegrilovane klobasy(grilled sausages) andsmazeny syr(deep-fried cheese), which can be bought for pocket change from local street vendors.
For a quick snack, pop into Prague’s delis for somechlebicky(open-faced sandwiches - the original version, created over 100 years ago, is topped with potato salad, Prague ham, Hungarian salami, Emmental cheese, hard boiled egg and a slice of tomato). For a food experience with a difference, make a beeline forNaplavka. This hipster hangout is perched on the banks of the Vltava river, where trendy locals gather for flowing beer, live music and, of course, sizzling street food stalls.
Drinking in Prague
The Czech Republic’s appetite forbeeris enormous. In fact, the country is famous fordrinking the most beer per capita on Earth, with the average local knocking backover 140 litresof the stuff each year (that’s 40 more litres than any other nationality). But if you think that translates to quantity over quality, you’re sadly mistaken. The Czech take their beer very seriously, producing stand-out brands likeStaropramen,Budweiser BudvarandPilsner Urquell(the world’s first pilsner - distinct in its light colour and strong hop flavours - brewed to existence in 1842). Once upon a time, stealing hops here was even punishable by death!

Fun fact:Czech beer is categorised in ‘degrees’, according to the Balling scale, which represents the alcohol content (e.g. Staropramen 10º and Staropramen 12º) - the higher the degree, the more likely you are to get half-cut. When ordering beer, use your thumb to signal you want one. Use your thumb and forefinger to signal ‘two’, and so forth.
Aside from beer, Prague has a long history of producing hangover-inducing spirits. The most famous isBecherovka: a gingery/cinnamon flavoured herbal bitter, made with over 20 different herbs and spices (best served cold and sipped, not shotted). Other spirits worth trying includeSlivovice(plum brandy) andCzech rum(particularly enjoyed in winter as ‘grog’, with hot tea and lemon). Make sure to put anAbsintherieon your itinerary, where you can drink the green stuff in its potent original form, or as absinthe beer, coffee or ice cream.
£1 = 30 Czech koruna(estimate)Flights:Usually anywhere from £15 to around £100 depending on the seasonTaxi from airport to centre:Around CZK 700. The bus is a fraction of the cost, but you'll need to change on to the metro to get downtown.24-hour metro ticket:CZK 110Local meal:CZK 140Pint:CZK 35. Na zdraví (cheers!)Becherovka:CZK 125. This potent Christmassy liqueur started out life as a medicinal cure, but these days you can also sip it as a cocktail, known locally as a ‘beton’.Prague Castle entry:CZK 350
Legal:While not exactly legal, personal possession of up to 10 grams of cannabis is tolerated as a misdemeanour rather than a criminal office, meaning the most you’ll get is a fine.
Illegal:Walking with an open bottle of beer is fine in most places, but not on public transport or on some old-town streets. Hiring a bicycle? Czech authorities have zero tolerance for drinking and cycling. Wait for the green man before crossing the road or you’ll land a CZK 1,000 fine – you’ll also find yourself in trouble for drunken vandalism or public urination.
Prague Neighbourhood Guide
Prague serves up a view of just about every imaginable architectural style and atmosphere, no matter which of its buzzing neighbourhoods you stay in.
Staré MěstoIf Prague is all about medieval charm and history for you, then the Old Town Staré Město neighbourhood is the place to stay. Not only is it centrally located for many of the most popular traditional Czech-style watering holes, its higgedly-piggedly cobbled streets also lead to the Old Town Square, with its imposing Church of Our Lady before Týn and the curious Prague Orloj astronomical clock.
It’s not the cheapest neighbourhood in Prague but, despite the name, Malá Strana or the Lesser Town is the place to stay if you want to experience a little of the high life during your stag do. Malá Strana’s location right along the Vltava River is especially charming, and being at the top of a hill gives you breathtaking views back over the Old Town. Leave a message on the area’s famous John Lennon Wall, spot peacocks as you wander through the manicured 17th-century Wallenstein Garden, and then nurse a local Budweiser in one of the area’s many traditional Czech pubs.
Prague isn’t only about old stuff, and staying in modern Nové Město – the New Town – means you’re spoilt for choice when it comes to bars and clubs. Wenceslas Square is right on your doorstep, and there’s the Palladium shopping centre, National Theatre and Municipal House concert hall if they’re more your bag. You’ll also get more of a feel for the ‘real’ Prague of locals than in the beautiful but touristy Old Town. That means it’s also a wise choice if you’re on a bit of a budget, since accommodation prices tend to be slightly lower in Nové Město than elsewhere in the city.
Staying in Letná means forsaking some of the convenience of staying in the city centre – but if you’re happy to hop on the metro, the trade-off is a trendy, local-feeling vibe and great spots like Letna-Schlösschen beer garden to chill out with a few cold ones and views over the city. You’re close enough to catch the footie at Sparta Prague’s Generali Arena (also called the Letná Stadium), and history buffs can get their fill of vintage Czech cars and telescopes at the National Technical Museum.

The Best Time to Visit Prague
What are the best months for a stag weekend to Prague?
June,JulyandAugustare great months to visit Prague, with the thermometer hovering at a balmy 18C: perfect for outdoor beers overlooking the city. However, the trade off is more expensive flights and the year's highest rainfall - so pack an umbrella if you don't want to get soaked!
Spring and autumn are still going to be pleasant times to visit, with 9C weather in exchange for cheaper flights and accommodation (you'll be drinking Staropramen inside pubs anyway).Januarydips to -1C, which isn't ideal for river cruises or drinking in the sun - but that's not to say you still won't have a fantastic time.
Getting to Prague
There are frequent flights to Vaclav Havel Airport Prague from the UK, taking around 2 hours from most UK airports.
From London (Luton, Stansted, Gatwick, City and Heathrow), expect flights to start as low as £30 one-way in the low season, climbing well above £200 when summer comes around. Expect similar (if slightly more expensive) prices from Edinburgh Airport, Birmingham Airport and Manchester Airport, reaching over £250 in the high season. It’s a popular stag destination, so book early to avoid disappointment and damage to your bank account.
