About the Bear Week

Prague Bear Summer is an international bear week.

You can meet 200+ bears and friends from the whole world in the middle of Europe and many more gay people that attend Prague Pride festival becuase it takes place simultaneously with it - every year mostly second week in August.

Family Atmosphere

In addition to the big pride festival our goal is to keep literally homey, cordial atmosphere to foster a "bear family". Thus you can meet most people in person and make new friends.
This is also place to meet your friends you know from other international bear events.

Beer, beer, beer

Czechia is famous for its beer and we’re proud of it. We have one of the best beer (according to us, try it and make your own opinion) and it’s cheap too – cheaper than water. Thanks to these facts we have the highest beer consumption in the world: more than 156 liters of beer per capita each year – old people, newborns and dogs included.


Useful tips & info

  • Money
    Still no eurozone in sight, so be prepared to do some math: 1 EUR is approximately 26 CZK (Kč, korun, Czech crowns). The safest way to get some cash is at an ATM. They are omnipresent.
    We recommend using an exchange office Praha Exchange, Jindřišská 12, Prague (there are more on that street - choose the one with red design). There are many places where you can change money, euros, dollars, pounds or anything in Prague, but some of them will SCAM you:( So you have to be careful. The rates may differ, but never more the +- 1 CZK off the official rate. You can always check the map at http://bit.ly/ChangePrague if the place is reported as safe.
  • Tips in restaurants
    Apart from 10% from the total you can use another system - when you receive a bill from the waiter, use the easy math, round the number up and tell the waiter how much he should take to keep at least 6 CZK. So for example: when you pay 143 CZK, tell the waiter: “150 CZK is okay”. But when it’s e.g. 148 CZK you should leave 160 CZK.
  • Opening hours
    Most museums are closed on Mondays. Many shops are closed on Sundays outside of the city centre. Restaurants usually serve warm meals until 21:00 (or 22:00). Later you can get some fast food.
  • Smoking
    Since July 2017 there is ban on smoking inside of the restaurants and bars. You can still smoke outside of the place.

What is a bear week about?
Bear Week is about bears and guys who share bear values coming together at various events.
It includes things that guys like - draft beer, parties at the club, naturist swimming or even lunch together.
You'll meet your current bear friends from different parts of the world or make new ones.
Is this for bears only? Will I fit in?
The atmosphere is very laid back. The event is intended is for bears, friends and admirers. If you are interested in bears, we would like to see you among us :)
We don't cater for specific bear “sub-types”, such as musclebears, chubbies or daddy bears, it’s not the case. There are no divides and no one feels excluded because of his body or age in here.
Is this a sex event?
Not as such. The bear week consists from several events, including social events, fun events, relaxing events… and also cruising events when meeting likeminded men is easier. Please note we must encourage all current safety recommedations - be responsible and play safe.
Any nudist event?
We like naked swimming & sunbathing so you will find at least one such event in the programme. There are also some parties with a cruising zone, of course, dresscode is not required.
