I had a few decent pints into the mix too but given that sometimes it was more about convenience than quality, I was happy enough with my beer experience in Prague. Thanks for the concern though.

Weird how you usually pay nearly double for bottled beer over here compared to draught whereas the reverse is true on most of the continent. And you likely swerved getting a shitely poured overpriced pint from a crap barman with the bottled Urquell.

Sparta Prague are playing Dukla Prague on the weekend we are going over, is that a big derby, easy to get a ticket for etc?

Just spent a terrific week in Prague doing the tourist stuff, probably just before it gets heaving with people like me.  Loved the place.

Due to when I get paid, I had to restrict what I could take in Czech currency and used my debit card when I got there.  I got 36 crowns to the £ before I went, and 26 to the £ from the hole in the wall machines in Prague.

For what it's worth, I preferred the Prague beer, Staropramen, to the Plzen stuff.  Some of the Urquell / Budweiser beer I got tasted a wee bit too like Tennents; maybe I was just unlucky or was expecting a bit more.  Wine in restaurants is ridiculously overpriced.  One exception in the centre was the Vejvodovka in the street of that name; great food and staff and a bottle of wine was less than half of what everywhere else was charging.

Not as many stag and lads do's as I'd dreaded but they are a feckin nightmare; I'll venture onto the naughty step and say that the English ones are the worst...invariably screaming and shouting at each other always one of them looking to be aggressive.  Irish pubs attract them like crazy.

Went for a rare night out in the Centrum on Thursday night, led to a 3am visit to the 24 hour McDonalds on Wenceslas Square. Crowd of guys in wearing the usual Cockney stag-do attire and a couple proudly sporting the three lions. One thought it would be funny to walk behind the counter, leading to the young lassie working behind it to shite herself, 

she screamed, thy all laughed, this happened three more times before a male member of staff went mental and started screaming, pushing the fourth w**k to do it out up the stairs. 

Not being in Prague one much any more when I am over, arrogant city breaking middle aged Brexity couples had overtaken Stag-do's as my object of contempt but now, Stag do's are number one.
