In total, 7% of British male population between the ages of 25 and 34 – and 2% of female Brits – travelled overseas for a stag or hen party each year.
And more of them head to Prague than anywhere else.
The Czech capital ranked as the top destination for British stag-goers according to ABTA data, with Barcelona and Benidorm in Spain coming in at 2 and 3. Budapest in Hungary and Riga, Latvia rounded out the top 5.
Interestingly enough, UK women aren’t nearly as interested in Prague – or elsewhere in Central and Eastern Europe – as their male counterparts. The Czech capital didn’t even rank among the top five destinations for hen parties.
What to stag parties do for fun? If you’ve ever taken a stroll through central Prague over the past decade, you probably have a good idea. ABTA reports that bubble football, paintballing, and go-karting are also popular activities.
