Stag parties snub Prague as credit crunch bites

Prague may be renowned as a top stag night destination, but more and more revellers are shunning the Czech capital as the credit crunch continues to bite, it would seem.

Stag parties have long been attracted to the city by the offer of cut-price flights and plenty of cheap booze, but Daily Mail journalist Tom Chessyre says all that could be set to change.

Mr Chessyre encountered several barmen and hotel operators during his visit to the city who reported a downturn in the number of stag parties heading out for a weekend stay.

And one British tourist from Chesterfield told him: "It's a bit dead now - not enough hen parties, groups of lasses. We're thinking of Krakow next year."

Indeed, Krakow could prove to be the ideal destination for those planning a stag weekend away in the coming months.

The Polish zloty has fared even worse than the pound in the currency stakes over recent months, making it perfect for revellers out to celebrate on a budget.ADNFCR-2122-ID-19185752-ADNFCR
