If you’re looking for a bustling city that has magically been left untouched by the destructive force that is tourism, set your sights on Brno. A stag weekend in Brno will excite you and your stag mates in ways you’ve only dreamed of. Brno is the Czech Republic’s second largest city and holds everything you would expect a big city to have. A stag do in Brno will be quite convenient for you and your mates as the locals are friendly and always willing to help out new people. Besides being a bustling city, Brno also sports a lot of historic interest. Founded in the year 1000, the city centre is loaded with old buildings and significant landmarks.
Beer is just about as common as water here – as a matter of Czech pride! If you’re staying in Brno, you are obliged to sample the local brew starobrno. At about a quid a bottle, you can’t lose. If you and your stag buddies want to sample something new, consider trying Slivovic, an intense spirit derived from plums. Make sure you drink it ice cold like the locals.
You and your stag mates will get hungry from all that beer drinking but you won’t die from starvation in Brno. If your budget is small it’s recommended that you stick to some good old-fashioned pub grub. If your budget is a little bigger, you and your Brno stag party should check out U kastelana, a five star restaurant in town.
Out on the Town:
When the lights go out in Brno, the city really comes alive. Brno holds the largest number of students in the country and the nightclubs live up to the demands. Whether you’re into pubs, bars, taverns, or nightclubs, all you have to do to enjoy the nightlife is hop on a bus and head to Freedom Square. It is situated in the centre of the city and is fully surrounded by everything you and your Brno stag do crew could possibly desire! Be sure to check out at least one Euro disco. Try checking out The Piranha if you want to try something unique.
Brno is loaded with stuff to do in the day. Check out some of the best shooting ranges in Eastern Europe. If shooting's not yourthing, we're sure beer is! Tour some local breweries – there may even be free samples involved. Be sure to check out the city centre; it’s filled with historic buildings, beautiful fountains and some great sculptures. You’ll also want to check out at least one of the famous castles that Brno boasts. Spilberk castle is especially interesting, although its history is a little dark. Lighten your day up by finishing off with the massive Petrov Cathedral.
The climate is temperate and ranges from a little below zero in winter to around 18 degrees in the summer months. The temperature is always pretty nice: the summers are nice and sunny, and the winters are nice and cloudy.
The currency in Brno is the Koruny. The exchange rate is approximately. £1 = 43 CZK. If you don’t have any Koruny on you, don’t worry as there are plenty of places where you can exchange currency.
Make sure you set your clocks to GMT + 1. If it’s between April and November, you’ll want to set them to GMT + 2.
How much can my quid stretch?
Pretty far! If your stag party is buying beer and food (and what stag party wouldn’t?), then your quid can stretch to enormous proportions. If you want to save money, stay away from wine; it’s pretty much the most expensive alcoholic beverage to buy in Brno.
