Budapest boasts an awesome range of unique stag adventures which you could only dream of doing back in the UK. Check out our top 10 choices for a big Budapest weekend!
Whilst you'll find brilliant bars dotted throughout the city, Budapest's 7th district is where the party crowds flock. With a range of bars to suit all tastes, you'll be able to locate your ideal boozer in no time. However, you simply can’t go all this way and not visit the ruin bars in Budapest!
From the best hotels in Budapest to fantastic self-catering apartments, you’ll be able to find the perfect accommodation for your group, putting you right at the heart of the action.
Thermal Baths - Budapest is famed for its geothermal springs and has 123 in the city alone (Hungary has over 500 in total).
Parliament Building - The impressive, gothic-styled parliamentary building is well worth checking out for any sightseers! Get the best views from across the Danube.
Heroes' Square - An iconic monument in the heart of the city and an awesome squad-selfie spot.
St. Stephen's Basilica - Another spectacular piece of architecture well worth a visit!
Laszlo Papp Sports Arena - Pretty sci-fi looking for a sports stadium and well worth a drive-by.
New York has a higher population than the whole of Hungary combined.
The Rubik's Cube, ballpoint pen, noiseless match, holograms and the theory behind the hydrogen bomb are all Hungarian inventions.
Hungarians never clink glasses when toasting.
Eats - The Iguana Bar & Grill brings a little of Mexico to Hungary. A great Tex-Mex restaurant with a rather fine collection of tequila for your tasting pleasure. They even have a menu dedicated purely to tequila! That's our kind of restaurant.
Drinks - The national drink of Hungary is Palinka. On the surface, the list of ingredients sounds like a harmless fruit cocktail, however, it kicks like a mule and will leave you walking sideways for a week. Approach with extreme caution.
Budapest has the second oldest underground train system in Europe (after London). You'll also find handy trams, boats, trolleys and buses. You can buy a 72-hour travel card ("Napijegy") that works on all forms of public transport, making it really easy to get about during a Budapest stag do and it's also good value for money.
Home to some of the city's most famous landmarks, by day, sitting on the west of the Danube, it's where you'll find most tourists. Things get quiet pretty quickly in the evening and while you'll get some great team photos, it's 'Snoresville'. If you're looking for action keep moving.
Getting There - Trams are the best way to get to District 1 or by Metro (underground train) take M2 line (red on the city's underground map) heading west, there are two stations, Batthyány Tér is the largest. The area is easily accessible by foot, crossing over the river by footbridge.
Translating as 'downtown' in Hungarian, Belváros runs along the east bank of the river and is packed with more of the city's historic sights, but it's not what you'd normally think of as downtown. It's one of the city's most affluent areas, packed with the best shops and restaurants. It's also pricey, so our advice is look but don't touch, there are better places to grab a beer which won't drown the budget.
Getting There - Tram 2 or Metro M3 (blue on the underground map) runs the length of the district.
Budapest 6 might sound like a really bad sci-fi, but it's actually a great area that is a real contrast. Fancy hotels and bars sit side by side with rundown cafes and shops. The area is ripe for redevelopment and the smart set are moving in, bringing trendy bars and restaurants with them. A good place for a bite to eat and starting drink but not where you'll want to end your night.
Getting There - The main station is Nyugati Station which trains, trams and Metro M3 all run to.
No stag party guide would be complete without the 7th District or 'Jewish Quarter', it's definitely Budapest's party central! It's here that you'll find the famous ruin bars. The ruin bars are exactly that, bars set into the ruins of the old abandoned ghetto. The funky open-air and rooftop bars are now THE place to party as they're full of the best bars and clubs. It's also one of the coolest places to party on the planet and something every man should experience at least once. Not only are the drinks really well priced, the food is also good, there's plenty of choice to be found and it's cheap (always shop around).
Getting There - M2 (red Metro) and trams 4 and 6 all stop in the 7th District.
If you're wondering what happened to Districts II, III and IV, no, you didn't blink and miss them, these are primarily residential districts without much nightlife worth reporting. Budapest has 23 districts in total, just in case you ever appear on QI (fact bomb! Take that, Toksvig!).
The city is made up of two distinct areas, Buda and Pest.
It's home to one of the world's biggest music festivals.
20% of the entire population of Hungary lives in Budapest.
Most of the UK's major airports offer flights to Budapest, but prices will vary. Check flights from other airports, you could make good savings by switching the airport of departure and arranging for transport to and from the airport in advance.
Don't worry if you can't see the dates. It's normal that airlines don't release flight schedules and prices until a certain number of months in advance. You can still secure your hotel, activities, etc with StagWeb. If you then find flights are too much of an issue, you can get a refund (up to six weeks in advance) or we'll help you switch to an alternative destination.
There isn't a bad time. If you were heading to Ibiza we wouldn't recommend February, when it's out of season and the weather is a bit pants. But in Budapest, there are months when the weather can be cold. Really cold. But that just means a whole new set of activities to explore. Some of the best Stag-tivities and Budapest stag challenges can only be done in the winter months. Also, off-season, you'll find fewer people. Fewer crowds, cheaper accommodation, fewer people at the bars and fewer tourists. Yes, we're all tourists but that doesn't mean we'd all wish there were less of us.
Simply give us a call and our Budapest Specialist will help answer any questions and give you first-hand knowledge from his many regular trips to see our team out in the Hungarian capital.
As well as offering friendly advice, StagWeb are ABTA and ATOL protected, ensuring we offer the highest levels of financial protection for your hard-earned money, giving everyone peace of mind. And with our individual payment system you won't end up chasing the rest of the guys, so once you've put us on the case just sit back and relax ahead of the big weekend, and we'll take care of the rest.
You can see the very best that Budapest has to offer over the course of your weekend away. We’d recommend throwing two or three activities in as well as a few nightlife options to get the party started and keep it pumping. And between all of that, you’ll still have time to wander around soaking up the best sights of the city.
Budapest Airport is situated 20 kilometres from the city centre meaning you can reach the centre in roughly half an hour (traffic dependent). Budapest airport transfers are a good option as they take out all the hassle of trying to negotiate public transport or flag down a taxi, your ride will be ready and waiting for you to get out the airport and take you straight to your accommodation. There are regular buses into the centre of town running every half an hour, which is another option.
In restaurants, if you think the service was good, it’s advisable to tip 10% and upwards if you’re feeling generous. In bars, it’s also a nice gesture to tip around 10% but it isn’t necessarily expected.
Not only is it a great opportunity to explore a brilliant city, but it’s also the perfect place to give the groom a send-off he’ll never forget with its incredible range of activities on offer plus its unrivalled nightlife. From the best ruin bars in Budapest to bouncing nightclubs, it has everything… and more!
In some bars, you can get a pint for around £1 (yes, £1!), but it does vary from place to place. Don’t settle on the first bar you stumble across, have a look around and gauge the prices for yourselves so you get more bang for your hard-earned buck!
