Prague

Took this in March this year - If you haven't been I recommend the place. Very interesting contrast between the Grandness of the City and the austerity of the suberbs - a legacy of communist rule.

Went a while ago, beautiful place and the metro is great, very, very, communist in its feel and look.

I'm flying out there tomorrow for a stag-do

Any recommendations? So far I've been told about Goldfingers and Kolkovna Restaurant

There will be 16 of us in the party  
Late Doors

Another Stag Do?????, Are you on the second time around circuit or younger than you seem
Butts

There's a good restaurant here. I went about 6 years ago and I can remember ordering the starter, the rest of the weekend is a blank.

Try and visit the communist museum, watch out for dippers, the usual stuff. Old Codge is a past master of this place - he should have a good insight.

Great place. Me and my mate went for four nights a few years ago in Jan (Brrrr). Totally agree about the communist feel, the Hotel we stayed in (The Hotel Golf) it was like a location out of Man from Uncle or The Ipcress File. The bars and restaurants were great, loads of waitress service, so you can sit there and watch the world go by. The beer is fantastic, especially the dark beers. Amazing achitecture, and that fantastic river sluggishly flowing past. Bull, make sure you take a walk up the big hill for an amazing view of the city, and a step back in time to 300 years ago. I'd go back anytime. Only place I felt intimmidated in was (and we only went in to save our fingers from frostbite) An English bar full of er, English people/cretins. The kind who can't survive more that two days without Sky football, even in somewhere as beautiful as Prague.

Have a great time!

Dock did you go to the church in the castle, St. Vitus I think.

There's a small memorial to the Czech airmen who flew for the RAF in there and some of the most stunning stained glass windows I've ever seen!

Beautiful City.

We stayed with some czech friends when we went and we had a trip out of Prague to this place  Karlstejn Castle , amazing and well worth a trip..

Sir Bulldog Craggwood

fabulous city
had a great time

16 of us in total including 5 others with the same surname as me (so i felt obliged to behave a little bit better than i might have done). the weather was good and the city looked fantastic. went to too many places to mention and had to stick to a timetable and events the best man sorted out - so couldnt do any of the things you recommended but will check them out next time i go.

Lowpoint was a evil strip bar called Atlas and the highpoint was a gentlemans club opposite called Darlings

Never seen so many beautiful girls in one place before  

Buddha Bar was a great place for dinner and we all stayed at a good value hotel called Christie Hotel. very friendly, very safe, clean city - a cultural mecca you could say

still hungover, fucked my knee up and now have only £20 to last me till 2nd november

but it was worth it!

I would have thought Craggwood was quite a rare surname.

the stags 'outfit' - its called 'mummy i dont want to grow up'

Robert Robinson

It wasn't a good stag venue when I first went in 1991.

It was just after the revolution and they hadn't got much in for the new influx of tourists.  The beer was stupid cheap - 5p a pint in places - but if you didn't have a seat you didn't get served and I remember having to queue to get in a few places.

I revisited a few times - mostly with my band as we had contacts out there who organised tours of the whole country - and each time we went back there were more and more Irish bars and MacDonalds popping up.

There used to be a great club called the Bunkr which shut down a few years ago. Had the longest bar in Prague and some great bands, dj's etc.

Great country, people, beer etc. Food's a bit dull mind. I remember eating a lot of fried cheese.

Re: fried cheese. Know what you mean RobRob, I ordered garlic soup once in Prague and it came with a medly of cheeses in it. Didn't look much, but tasted farcking ace. Just the job to beat the perishing cold and snow outside.

*goes for second helping* Nom Nom!
