The British stag parties invasion to Eastern Europe caused a lot of mixed emotions. While the barkeepers are enjoying the growing revenues some other locals are disagreeing with the alcohol consumption, original but offending costumes and loud behaviour.
The situation in cities like Prague or Riga gets sometimes critical and the stagers are turning home with the feeling of being unwelcome guests there.
The situation is different in Bucharest, the capital of Romania and third largest city on Balkan after Istanbul and Athens. This huge city has 2 millions people of which are ten thousands University and college students and the atmosphere here is different from the conservative mood of historical centres of other capitals.
Romanians are a Latin nation like Spanish and Italians and they live their lives to fullest, not like their Slavic neighbours.
Since joining EU in 2007 a lot changed is accessibility of Bucharest with low cost carriers opening new possibilities to discover this city. There are regular daily flights by easyJet, WizzAir and Blue Air from London and three times weekly flights from Liverpool by WizzAir.
Several bars and casinos already reacted on the new wave of party looking travellers with special offers. The tour company BucharestStag.com has a full portfolio of activities and organise complete stag weekends in Bucharest since early 2007. As the testimonials at their site are showing, the city enjoys growing popularity with travellers from England, Scotland, Ireland and Wales.
The Bucharest Stag Weekend packages by BucharestStag.com include 24 hours local support, dedicated female tour guide, wide selection of hotels, hostels and apartments with party friendly policies and lot of first hand tips about the best nightlife spots. To grow up the team-spirit of the stag party several challenging and fun activities like paintballing, go-karting, bowling or Steaua Bucure?ti football match tickets can be booked. For the ones with real adrenaline deficiency the tandem parachute jump is the best option.
The top reason why stag travellers comment so good about Bucharest is the night life. Actually comparing to stags in Prague or Riga, the groups do not face any “No stag parties” signs on doors of dance clubs or pubs. Should you look for a party-intensive weekend then consider a local guide, like the ones that praised very much by best men and stags on the testimonial page of BucharestStag.com.
Should you plan a stag weekend then Bucharest is perfect destination to consider.
