The Best Stag Do: Go East
A stag do in another country is very quickly becoming a norm in the marriage procession. A weekend abroad with the lads is the best way for your mate to kiss his freedom goodbye, and close this chapter of life. Not only is this an opportunity for him to let loose one last time, but it is also a great chance for all his friends to catch up, and enjoy a much deserved vacation. Europe is a big continent though… with a million places to pick from, just where is the best destination for a stag weekend in Europe? The answer is easy: Go East!
Eastern Europe is an undiscovered paradise, ripe for the picking. Since the fall of the Iron Curtain this land has been exposed to the West, but more importantly the West has been exposed to it. Each year more and more tourists flock here, and in the last decade more and more of those tourists appear to be thirsty lads who have chosen to celebrate their stag weekend in Eastern Europe. So just what is it that attracts thousands of eager stag parties every year? Perhaps it is the fact that each of these countries offers beer at prices cheaper than water…? Perhaps it is that the women that grace their streets are about 11 out of 10 on the English scale…? Or could it be the relaxed laws, and the insane amount of wild and raucous activities that are present here..? If you guessed a mix of all three, you nailed it! These ingredients are the keys to making sure you and your mates have a successful stag weekend in Eastern Europe.
The Baltic States are about as east as you can get without getting Russian. They are overflowing with stag essentials, and are learning more and more towards how to cater to the lads. Vilnius, the capital of Lithuania is no exception. This is one of the handful of cities in the East that is still relatively undiscovered, in fact before reading this, it is likely you had never even heard of it! The Lithuanians are, for the most part, a very friendly bunch, and are more than receptive to stag groups. Often times they will approach you to ask “just what the hell you are doing in Vilnius?!” The nightlife is incredible here as well, and not to beat a dead horse, but the women are amazing. Tall, blonde, Eastern Euro beauties!
Riga, the capital of Latvia is another of these incredible Baltic destinations. This land is nicknamed the “Pearl of the Baltic States” and for good reason. This land was voted this year’s European Capital of culture, and received a whopping 5 million tourists to boast. It is the biggest of the Baltic cities, and the nightlife is beyond that of any other city near it!
Tallinn is yet another classic spot for a stag weekend in Eastern Europe. This Estonian capital is one of the most popular stag destinations, period. Beyond the aforementioned, booze, girls, and activities, Tallinn also welcomes some of the cheapest British flights around. For under a hundred pounds you will find yourself landing in the home of the supermodels. That’s right Estonia has more international fashion models than anywhere else in the world! Are you sold yet?
So when you are deciding just where it is you will be shipping your friends off to this wedding season, look no further than the East! Lithuania, Latvia, and Estonia are home to the best stag weekends in Eastern Europe, and they are showing no signs of letting up soon! į sveikatą, priekā, terviseks, CHEERS!
