Straddling the Danube where East meets West, Budapest has spent the last two millennia being overrun by Romans, Slavs, and then Magyars – the Asiatic forebears of the present-day Hungarians – followed by Mongols, Turks, Habsburgs, Romanians, Nazis, Soviets, and, lately, Irish real estate speculators. The result is a bewildering blend of diverse influences and an extremely varied gene pool – which means some of the most beautiful women in the world.
One of the best things to do in Budapest is to simply stroll around the city soaking up the unique atmosphere and historical architecture, and checking out those world-famous girls. The views from almost anywhere along the Danube are incredible – which is why our boat tours are so popular – and if you scale one of the Buda Hills (exploring the Castle District is highly recommended), you will see the whole city sprawled out in front of you. Must-see sights include the Heroes’ Square, the St. Stephen’s Basilica and the giant Parliament building, but they are just the tip of the iceberg.
Of course, sightseeing is an exhausting business, and most stag groups are looking for less cerebrally challenging things to do. Budapest has all the entertainment facilities you would expect in a modern, cosmopolitan city, with plenty more besides. The city is home to dozens of thermal spas gushing out health-giving, hangover-busting warm water (and hangover-inducing thermal bath parties), its own island park on the Danube for sports and relaxation, and Europe’s largest music festival, the week-long orgy that is Sziget.
To make your weekend in Budapest extra special, we offer all manner of activities, from pistol shooting and Trabant tours to wine-tasting and spa visits. Just check out our comprehensive list of activities and pick and mix anything you want, we will do our best to pack it all into your weekend. And if you have any questions about our activities, or about Budapest in general, do not hesitate to give us a call on +36 30 349 9015.
But let’s cut to the chase, shall we? Most stag groups come to Budapest for the full-fat food and drink, the nightlife and the girls, all three of which are renowned all over the world. In summer, there are scores of great outdoor bars and restaurants in pedestrian streets and squares and several great clubs where you can party outside until the sun comes up. The city is also nicely spread out, there is no real focal point, which makes dining and going out in Budapest an eclectic experience – and will leave you wishing you could stay for a couple of weeks, or come and live here, like us.
And because we have been stationed in Budapest for years, we know all the best places to eat out, chill out and go out. Our nightlife tours take you to the restaurants and bars you won’t find on your own -and whatever you are looking for in a night out, our seasoned guides can help you find it.
