Hi is Prague safe for a stag weekend as heard varying reports about it
It's as safe as you want it to be, but generally it is frowned upon.
what is frowned upon?
Stag parties in Prague :)
Whether you are a stag party of just a bunch of guys coming for a weekend, nobody cares as long as you don't get blind drunk and cause trouble. If you behave with decorum your money is just as good as anybody elses.
It looks like you have got similar advice from other places - I'll adapt the response you got in Barcelona:
"It really depends on what you want to do. Prague can be a good place for 'civilized' stag/hen weekends. However, too many seem to believe that's sensible to get wasted in a unknown neighbourhood of a big city, and they then complain they have been robbed, ripped-off and got in other troubles..."
Expect no sympathy from authorities in the event of any losses/injuries/crimes committed (however unwittingly - this includes public drunkenness, riding the trams/metros without a ticket), etc. But of course you're not going to do stuff like that, are you? :)
is the place not run by the Mafia though? as seen a show by Donal McIntyre on it and it appeared to be which is why I ask if its quite dangerous as it showed taxi drivers carrying guns etc... to protect themselves
All the more reason to behave yourselves :o)
Brilliant idea Torii, Brno is the place to go, very provincial, the locals there would not stand for expensive food and drinks - would save yourself a fortune. Plus Ryanair flies to Brno - cheap and easy for you to get there!
thanks for your help and advice. so do you know anything about Brno? by way we are not a group of rowdy lads just want to be sure that we are safe wherever we go
