Poland has an unbelievably beautiful landscape, not far out of the many bustling cities, you can find some of Eastern Europe’s hidden treasures, where you can hike or bike for days without seeing another soul.
The cities are another thing entirely. The Poles are a resilient people, after the war, they worked to restore their cities to their original splendour. Krakow is full of history, with its cobbled streets, medieval churches and merchant houses.

Many Hungarian festivals are held especially in the summer months as the Hungarians love to party outside whenever they can! Some are traditional, where you’ll be encouraged to join in; others are chock full of modern entertainment, with live music, dancing and delicious Hungarian food.
Nightlife is on the money for a Stag weekend abroad. Drinks are very cheap in comparison to anywhere in Western Europe, the clubs are full of crazy party-goers dancing to the pumping tunes of world-class DJs, flown in to play here for the amazing atmosphere.
Although not as vibrant as Hungary, Latvia has its own unique beauty in the form of historic buildings and gorgeous squares dotted around the cities. In the beer gardens and street cafes, you can people-watch to your heart’s content, sipping delicious coffee and sampling the local delicacies. The bustling cobbled streets are full of tourists and locals in the summer; if you visit in the winter, a spectacular Christmas scene will greet you, making you feel all fuzzy inside!
