From 2014. We were there a couple of years ago and it was quiet and lovely. Apart from the students eagerly imploring us to visit Auschwitz of course. I think the stag crowd have moved on and are ruining Prague these days....
I've been to Krakow four times since 2007 ( at varying times of the year ) and I've never ever had an issue with stags. I suspect that, like a lot of cities, there is a particular area where the drink & tit & dick action is contained, and if you don't happen upon that area, you don't have a problem. I've also read that stag tourism tends to hit hardest in cities which have recently become a budget airline route. it proliferates for a year or two before it's restricted by the local authorities.
The only place we encountered a rowdy stag party was in Budapest about 10 years ago. They were Brits ( natch ) and clocked us as being Brits, so started to "interact" with us. They were pretty harmless, and also extremely foolish. One of them dropped his trousers to show us his wares. We laughed and my friend shouted " I've seen better" and we walked off.
What I really wanted to tell him but couldn't is that my friend is a nice girl and has only seen about three in her entire life.
