Top Eastern European Destinations for a Stag Do 2018
It may be a bit chilly in the winter, but Eastern Europe is a hot contender on the stag do destination wish list. Why? Well, perhaps it’s the fact that your money will go so much further in these low-budget destinations, or maybe it’s the fact that nightlife in this part of the world rivals even the most hardcore party capitals. It could even have something to do with the stunning urban landscapes, the rich culture, history and the delectably diverse gastronomy.
So, without further ado, we bring you the definitive Eventhuse list of our very favourite Eastern European stag destinations, you need to consider.
Not only is Riga uniquely picturesque and Instagram-worthy, the city also has an epic nightlife scene, with hip young Latvians heading out to cool, quirky venues and events every night of the year.
Add to these stellar accolades the fact that Riga is also one of the cheapest Eastern European destinations around, making it a favourite for stag groups on a budget. Amazing day trips await the more adventurous stag groups, but for those satisfied with urban exploration, Riga has everything you could want and more.

Prague, Czech Republic
Prague has long enjoyed a prominent status on the ‘top stag do destinations’ hall of fame, and for good reason. The Czech capital is picture perfect, oozing with bohemian culture, and bursting at the seams with things to do for stag groups. And the fact that the city also boasts a hedonistic approach to nightlife like no other, is just the cherry on the cake.
Prague can be a little more pricey than other Eastern European destinations but is still relatively budget friendly and low prices can be hunted down easily.

Budapest has a magic that is hard to describe or explain. You just have to go there to experience it yourself. It can be found in the multiple ‘ruin bars’ that are hidden around the city in abandoned and often derelict buildings; and in the reflection of the city on the water of the Danube, with its impressive stately architecture and atmospheric old town towers.
And, to some extent, it can be found in your wallet, when you see how much money you amazingly still have left after an epic stag weekend in the Hungarian capital.

What the Bulgarian capital lacks in size, it more than makes up for in attitude and personality. This is where the beautiful people come out to play and with enough clubs, casinos and bars to last a lifetime, Sofia is a dream destination for stag groups looking for a wild party on the cheap.

Bratislava is this year’s rising star on both the stag scene but also the tourism scene in general. Emerging onto the ‘must visit’ lists like a shy flower ready to blossom, Bratislava has the cool factor without even trying.
Perfectly combining tradition with a modern outlook, this city is still off-the-beaten track enough to be alternative and uncrowded, but with everything you might need for a contemporary and comfortable stag weekend away.
Whats the Story with Bratislava?
Often called the Paris of Eastern Europe, Bucharest definitely has the elegance of the French capital, but with a distinctly rough Eastern European edge that makes it all the cooler.
The city is dirt cheap for visiting stag groups looking to wine and dine their way through the weekend and with nightlife this buzzing, Bucharest really is the full package.
