Budapest became one of Europe’s hottest party spots for stag parties (also known as bachelor and bucks nights) thanks to the city’s bang for your buck ratio: 10 British pounds will buy you nine pints. Cheap flights to the city also help. But the city’s vitalizing culture scene and its many, many, many bars, clubs and thermal baths are a huge draw, too.
Budapest is a place of extremes, both the food and the nightlife being no exception. The city offers every major cuisine, so a group can sample everything from goulash to almaval toltott facan (pheasant stuffed with apples) or the more traditional Paprika inspired dishes such as Chicken paprikash and sour cream dumplings. And of course, there are the ubiquitous pálinka-based drinks, which have long been Hungary’s national spirit.
The nightlife scene in the capital is one of the most exciting and varied you will find in all of Europe. The city has a large number of high end bars and clubs where you can go to dance, drink and even catch a show. Those looking for a more relaxed atmosphere should head to the city’s many thermal spas, where they can relax and unwind in the pools while sipping on a cold beer or two.
Whether you are into adrenaline pumping experiences or want to calm down and relax Budapest has something for everyone. With over 80 thermal springs, it’s easy to take a dip, or just sit back and soak up the views of the riverside parks and the stunning buildings that line the banks. If you are looking to get up close and personal with the local wildlife, a trip on one of the Danube River Cruises is a great option. You will see the city from a different perspective and you might be lucky enough to spot some of the local wildlife such as the herds of deer or storks.
There are so many amazing stag do activities to choose from in Budapest. From the popular beer bike to a guided bar crawl accompanied by a hot Hungarian girl, there is something for every stag group’s needs. Alternatively you can get away from the bustle of the city centre and enjoy a river boat cruise while watching the sunset with a cocktail in hand or enjoying the views from up high on a stag party bus.
If you are really looking to prank the stag, the Stitch Up Experience is perfect for you. This experience involves a fake arrest by the stag where he is handcuffed and blindfolded, told he has done wrong and then taken to the police station. He will then be led inside where he will be surprised to find it’s a strip club and he’ll get a lap dance from a very sexy stripper. This is a great way to get the stag in stitches and to make him think his last weekend of freedom was a complete and utter disaster! stag party Budapest
