Bucharest is served by a variety of public transport options. Stag groups wanting to travel can opt for a wide network of bus, tram and trolleybus lines. Almost the entire city is covered by these routes and the lines run from 5am until 11:30pm.
The underground service is perhaps the most efficient way of traveling around Bucharest. Perfect for Bucharest stag do groups looking to get around quickly and easily, there are 4 different lines and metro stations are dotted across the capital and are indicated by a giant blue M above ground.
While we know that a large proportion of stag groups spend most of their time in Bucharest guzzling cheap beer, there are plenty of alternative activities to keep them occupied. While some of the more outdoor pursuits may depend on good weather conditions, Romania’s climate is working in your favour. Due to its position in the south-eastern part of Europe, Bucharest has a relatively temperate, humid continental climate.
Having said that the winter can be windy, and cold with temperatures often dipping well below 0°Celsius. Summer is warm and sunny with the occasional rain.
- Visit the Museum of the Romanian Peasant: Undoubtedly one of the best museums in Bucharest, the Museum of the Romanian Peasant is a great alternative idea to pass the time while not boozing on your stag weekend abroad. It’s full of weird and wonderful costumes, weapons, icons, architecture and artwork.
- Laze in the Sun at Herastrau Park: Bucharest has lots of great outdoor retreats and green areas which are just perfect for an afternoon or lazing in the sun with an ice-box full of cold beers, watching the pretty girls stroll past. Top points for a stag afternoon of park life chillaxing go to Cismigiu Garden, the Botanical Garden, and Herastrau Park.
- Experience Communist Bucharest: The Romanian capital still bears many remnants of its Soviet era, communist history. If it’s a more historically enriching experience you want from your stag do in Bucharest, track down some of the famous communist landmarks such as The House of the Free Press and Revolution Square.
- Visit the Lipscani District: Every city has one. A district that is cooler, more unique, eccentric and quirkier than the rest. This spot is usually where you’ll find the best bars, the best clubs, the best shops and the best people. In Bucharest, this district is called Lipscani, and it is an absolute must visit for any stag group looking for a great evening out.

- Try the Escape Room Experience: For an awesome stag experience, try the Escape Room. Ok, we know it’s not exactly typically Romanian, but it is typically team-building, fun and challenging. It’s a great idea to get the group to know each other at the beginning of the weekend abroad.
- Grand Prix Go Karting: Anyone for a bit of healthy competition? Find out which of your stag group is the quickest and slickest when it comes to driving. Grand Prix Go Karting is not just an exhilarating activity to take part in, it’s also fun to watch the other drivers battle it out for first place from the side lines, cold beer in hand!
