Looking to take the road less travelled? Ljubljana in Slovenia is the ideal spot for the great-outdoorsman to experience the thrill of the untamed wilderness or the culture-junkie to explore one of the most enigmatic cities of Eastern Europe. Tucked away in the lush greenery of the Alpine mountains, the city of Ljubljana is a great destination for a stag weekend filled with activities. Your point of departure for a full-throttle stag party featuring outdoor adventures, steamy nightlife, the best smoking in the Balkans, and gorgeous women that aren't afraid to show skin and get down - a little compliment to their English skills goes a long way.
Ljubljana is Europe's best-kept secret - the tourists haven't even started to figure out where this is yet! The Slovenian capital has all the charms of a Salzberg or a Prague, but prices are better and crowds are nonexistent. With a medieval Old Town, some of the finest Art Nouveau architecture on earth, the inevitable Soviet influence, and a castle on a hilltop, Ljubljana is a gorgeous mashup of historical and cultural influences. This is a land of castles, lakes, and mountains (great skiing in the winter), so a Slovenia stag do is the perfect chance to unplug and have an amazing bachelor party.
Since Slovenia is a lesser-known destination, London is your best bet for flying over, but with Wizz Air and EasyJet, it should still only come to about £30-40 to get there if you plan ahead (and sometimes specials can get you over for £15!). Flights take just under 2 hours, so you'll barely have time to look around before you're getting started!
Ljubljana is quite compact, so the whole city is walk-able (just be sure to wait your turn to cross the road if you don't want a fine!), but there is great infrastructure for bikes here, too, and if you want to head to the zoo or somewhere a little farther out, biking is a great way, and rentals are no more than £5 per day. A tourist train can take you around the Old Town for free, and buses are cheap and reliable for heading out of town. Taxis are clean and reliable, but you need to call them to avoid some idiot ripping you off (Taxi Ljubljana is the best company to use - and they speak English).
Ljubljana is a city of castles and bridges (check out the Dragon Bridge, where the four bronze dragons are said to wave their tails when a virgin passes...), and you can even paddle around the city on the beautiful river that runs right through. Go indoor paintballing or karting, or check out the shooting range (and test out multiple guns - revolvers, 9mm, and small calibers).
Set to be a European green capital in 2016, this is a pristine place to get your hands dirty and have a great stag weekend. Explore the nearby Alpine mountains, and visit the So?a River, said to be one of the most beautiful rivers in the world. Its crystal-blue waters and natural "water slides" are perfect for swimming and rafting - you can even go canyoning like a champ with your crew! Skiing is incredibly popular here in the winter, so go for it - and then come back to town for an erotic massage to work out all those kinks.
And when night falls, you'll find exactly the club atmosphere you're looking for. Ljubljana is a very young city proportionally (more than 60,000 students), so you know there's going to be some sweet nightlife, from the well-heeled variety all the way down to the raw party. Metelkova, a dive-bar paradise, is a walled-up squatter's compound where all the crazy happens - hippies, rockers, and the city's cool kids all hang side-by-side in Metelkova's giant indoor tree house and drink from their own bottles. At the end of the night, the Escape strip club offers nonstop entertainments in a relaxed atmosphere with chill staff. All these different activities in such an amazing location would be a great place for the stag weekend of your dreams. Also check out our Ljubljana stag packages!
