The Stag Company: Guide to Budapest

The Capital of Hungary Budapest is one of the most popular Eastern European Stag Weekend Package destinations; it is full of charm, has a vibrant nightlife and is very cheap; which is all very appealing! The Hungarian landscape is split by the cities focal point the famous River Danube, which divides it into Buda and Pest (they used to be two separate cities).

Residential Buda the smaller of the two is home of the castle and Pest is the livelier more commercial part, the one that we are sure your stag party will be heading to in the evenings. There are many things to do on a Budapest stag do, from taking in the sights to some of the more favoured stag activities: Bobsleigh experience, Pistol shooting, Go Karting, Paintballing, Quad biking, Lap dancing and Thermal Spa’s.

Flights

Flying to Budapest is straightforward; it takes just 2 hours 20 mins from the UK and is very reasonable most budget airlines fly to Budapest (Ferihegy) International Airport. Visit skycanner.co.uk for the best deals on flights. The airport is ten miles outside of the city centre, so we suggest getting tickets for the Airport Minibus, which can be purchased at the airport.

Price of Beer

Beer costs between £1.50/ £2

Weather

The weather in Budapest is very changeable especially in March and early April when it is very unpredictable. We are sure you are not planning your Budapest Stag purely for its weather, but just as a guide for you the weather begins to improve in mid April/May and then reaches its peak summer weather June-August when it is very hot and dry. The winter begins in November and can be bitterly cold and reach temperatures below zero so wrap up if travelling up until January.

Official Currency

Forint HUF; (100, 00 HUF = 0.32 GBP

Things to Do

For a cultural experience visit the Castle District, take in the sights of the monuments and castle. For an action packed experience try the adrenalin fuelled bobsleigh experience: roll down 700m of winding chutes and tracks in little toboggans surrounded by beautiful Visegrad Hills.

Then go for the Budapest Night activity: this is a 5 hour guided crawl where you will visit 3-4 pubs, then a nightclub and a lap dancing club. Relax Budapest has lots of Thermal Spas, which are definitely worth visiting and a perfect hangovers cure.

Safety

Safety in Budapest is a very important issue, be aware of taxi scams, only use taxis with a yellow license plate and a taxi sign fixed to the roof of the cab. Avoid poorly lit streets and underpasses, as you will be targeted as a tourist.
