the best beer you will ever have can be bought for a buck a liter (that is 33 ounces), the strippers (I am told) make the girls in vegas look like klinger from mash, a hotel can be had for $30-40, and if anybody does want to cross the threshold of good taste, there are gorgeous women available for what it costs to have a breakfast buffet in vegas.
every time I go to prague for business, the city is full of brits on bachlor party weekends, having a blast.
oh, and it is one of the cheapest places in the world to hear good opera every night of the year.
Although I didn't file the article (not realizing I would wish to reference it), I am sure you can quickly research the statistics.Prague
recently surpassed Kiev as the HIV
capital of Europe.
My wife spent her ninth through fourteenth years in Prague when her father was posted there by the (then) Byelorussian government. So, each year while we are in Minsk, we make a side-trip to Prague. If a person hasn't visited Prague since the 1980s, that person is due for a strong shock upon seeing the free and "socially friendly behavior"
in Prague's younger people today.
Globetrotter is correct as far as his description goes. The girls are very friendly and pretty. They are also (like the beer) inexpensive according to what I am told. Enjoy the opera if and when you visit. However, bachelor party behavior is riskier in Prague. How lucky do you feel?
Good luck and have plenty of fun wherever you celebrate!
