Hungary should be on everyone’s bucket list as a place to visit, not just for a Stag Do. From the architecture to local festivals and events, there’s enough to do here to last a few weeks, so your Stag Weekend in Hungary will be jam-packed full of excitement!
If you wander around Hungary, you’ll notice that the buildings’ styles range from Art Nouveau to Classicist-style, giving the country a certain charm and romance. The Parliament on the Pest embankment is grandiose, St Stephen’s Basilica has one of the largest synagogues in the world and if you fancy a little romance, have a walk through Heroes Square to get you in the wedding mood?♥️
For the stags who are sporty, there are many events you might like to book as part of your Stag Weekend in Hungary to make it ultra special. The Spar Budapest Marathon kicks off in October, with 27,000 people taking part from all over the world, with musical performances taking place around the area. The FINA World Aquatics Championships is the largest sporting showcase Hungary has ever hosted, with 75 different contests over 17 days. In 2017, you can go to the Judo World Championships, the World Armwrestling Championships and Ironman, which is a triathlon event.
If you boys are after something more cultural, then a visit to the Opera House of Budapest will fill you with joy and beautiful music. The Thermal Baths in Budapest are a fabulous way to relax, soak up the Hungarian culture and socialise, there are amazing rooftop bars and atmospheric piazzas for drinking and glitzy clubs to dance the night away. A fantastic way to see Hungary is by boat on the River Danube. Visit historical ruins, hills and valleys on the Danube Bend and go hiking through forests for a tranquil frame of mind?
Festivals in the UK tend to happen in the summer months, in Hungary, they occur quite often and the Hungarians love their beer just like we do, so Oktoberfest could be an amazing festival to include on your Stag Weekend in Hungary. In Europe’s crazy nightlife capital, gorgeous ladies can be seen holding man-sized steins of beer for you to sup, while you watch local acts in the autumn sun. The Czech Beer Festival is held in City Hall Park in Budapest and there are 50, yes 50 types of beer to consume! The Sziget Festival normally takes place in August, a 7 day booze-filled festival of music, parting and madness, don’t miss it!
No matter what your visit to Hungary is for, there are no shortages of things to do and see, your visit could be the most exhilarating Stag Do ever!
