Why choose Belgrade for a stag weekend
Belgrade is the most edgy, energetic, and all around electrifying party city that you’ve never heard of - it might not have the reputation of Ibiza, London, or Amsterdam, but that’s not stopping it taking the clubbing world by storm, topping Lonely Planet’s list of top 10 party cities in the world and fast claiming its place as one of the coolest capital cities in Europe. Missing the opportunity for a Belgrade stag do is missing the opportunity for one of the most astounding, crazy weekends in the whole continent. Serbians would be the first to acknowledge that their country has a troubled history, but in Belgrade they partied outdoors whilst bombs dropped, making it very clear that nothing was going to come between this city and a good time. Now things have stabilised there’s even more reason to celebrate, and every night is Friday night in the underground and apartment bars, and in the floating nightclubs. Partying is practically a national pastime, and you’re invited! It’s not all clubbing though – Belgrade has far more than just that to offer. We love a Belgrade stag weekend not just for the nightlife, but for the crazy amount there is to do in the city, including festivals, activities, and 7000 years of culture. There’s even a beach, and soaring temperatures of 23 degrees – you couldn’t have designed a better stag do destination.
When’s good for a Belgrade stag do?

Forget about Magaluf or Barcelona – if you want a hot summertime holiday, a Belgrade stag weekend has to be top of your list. With the temperature averaging highs of 29 degrees, sun cream and shorts are definite necessities. We’d pack the budgie smugglers too – Belgrade may be landlocked, but that hasn’t stopped the locals from building their own beach around the river, with around 100,000 daily visitors in summer.
Where? Location, location, location...
Ideally, the closer to the river the better – particularly in summer, when all the clubs relocate to boats, and take to the water. The city centre, around Terezije or Savamala, is a good all arounder – close to the nightlife, as well as the restaurants and shops. If you're a little further out there’s no problem – taxis are incredibly cheap by European standards, and splitting one between the group of you cuts costs even further.
How? Getting to your Belgrade stag do
Not everyone has cottoned on to Belgrade as a top destination yet, so it’s still only London that does direct flights. London Heathrow and Luton both do trips to Belgrade a few times a day with Jat Airways or Wizzair, and the flight is about 2 and a half hours. Belgrade’s airport is about 12km west of the city centre, but there’s a bus route and a minibus to take you in to town, or taxis are a fairly cheap option when travelling in groups.

How to finance a jet set lifestyle in Belgrade
Flying off to exotic shores always sounds like an expensive trip for the lads, but a Belgrade stag do is more likely to save you money in the long run. Sure, you’ve got flights to pay for, but after that things more or less take care of themselves – beer and food are about a third of the price they are in the UK. When you can pick up a bottle of beer for about £1.18 or a decent wine for £2.99, you know the city’s a good place for a stag. Travelling with StagWeb will save you even more money. We can get you a place to stay, a means of travelling, activities for the day and entertainment for the night from only £119 per person, so literally all you’ll have to pay for is the flights – and a little spending money too.
