Budapest, the world renowned Hungarian capital, is often described by those who know a thing or two about travel, as one of the most beautiful cities in Europe. Generously spread over 535 square kilometres it's home to over 1,700,000 residents - making it a very decent sized capital. Unsurprisingly with its size Budapest is Hungary's largest city, divided by the River Danube (and its famous bridges) into two halves - Buda and Pest (pronounced 'pescht'). The two halves a populated by 23 separate districts, each numbered with Roman numerals in a clockwise direction. With a wartorn and boundary-changing history, a Budapest has nonetheless remained a beacon of central European style with some amazing architecture, masonry and feats of structural engineering.

There are many worthy reasons to visit Budapest but often overlooked is its outstanding food and wine - take it from us, for a certain dietary styling (namely fat boys) the city offers some superb restaurants and with the right venues the value is as good as any capital city in Europe, Central or not. With nearly 2 million residents you'd be right in presuming there'll be a healthy selection of bars, pubs and clubs, not to mention casinos. Add to this our range busting selection of Budapest stag do entertainment and you and the boys can be sure of a very fine time indeed. Budapest is often relegated as a city break destination in favour of more astutely marketed destinations, Prague immediately springs to mind (Budapest often, and sometimes enviously, refers to living in Prague's shadow), but it needn't. Scratch the surface of this city and you'll start to understand why many consider this one of Europe's major jewels.
Visit anytime of year and you'll enjoy your trip but in the summer, believe it or not it has some of the keenest sunshine in Europe, with temperatures often reaching a sun burning 30 degrees, whereas in winter the temperature drops considerably with snow regularly falling in January and February.
By way of a short summary there is something for everyone here, whether you want to high roll or budget bust, whether you want edge of the seat action or cultural chilling, whether eating is cheating or you indulge yourself in award winning hospitality. This huge city has so much to offer and we know our Budapest stag weekends are among the best in Europe. Synonymous with understated style and great value, Budapest is one of most highly recommended trips for an unforgettable international stag weekend!
