Planning a Stag Do in Budapest?
Budapest is by far the most popular city in Hungary, it has gained this title for being home to some of the most unique nightspots.
Budapest is vast and great, split into two large sections with something for everyone to enjoy – perfect for a stag do abroad! If you want a bit of everything for the celebrations, a stag do in Budapest is an ideal place to celebrate.
As one of Hungary’s largest cities is it made up of two main parts; historic Buda on west of the Danube river and cosmopolitan Pest on the East where no doubt you’ll be for most of your stag weekend as this is where you’ll find the shops, markets, restaurants and nightlife.
Speaking of nightlife this city is famous for its clubs and bars nested inside abandoned buildings. And lads, if all that doesn’t get your attention the cost of a pint averages to around £1, if that doesn’t make you want a stag do in Budapest then I don’t know what will.
This wonderful city has three islands in the centre of Danube that locals have re-names the ‘diamonds of Budapest’ and for good reason. There are two main islands, Margaret Island and Hajogyari.

Nightlife for a Budapest Stag Do
Budapest nightlife is one of the best and cheapest in Europe, although the nightlife is awesome you need to know your way round to make the most of what the city has to offer.
We suggest getting a tour guide as you may already have been warned that there are quite a few dodgy strip clubs and taxi drivers throughout the city. So during your stag do in Budapest make sure you’re with someone you know will make sure you have a good time.
Nearly all the clubs and bars stay open to the early hours of the morning and all have a young vibe so you’re bound to have a laugh and re-live your teenage years by being a young lad for your last days of freedom.
