Party in Poland this Winter

Stag Republic and Hen Nation launch in Krakow and Warsaw.

Budapest, Hungary (PRWEB) November 3, 2006 — Stag Republic, a leading stag party organiser in Eastern Europe, today announced a new trend for upmarket twin-centre stag and hen parties.

For those looking for an alternative to the traditional British stag or hen party, why not try wild boar tracking and rickshaw racing in Poland this winter, as Stag Republic ( and Hen Nation ( launch an exciting new programme for UK groups?

>From just £45 per person parties can venture into the Tatry Mountains (around 60km from Krakow) and spend a day hiking with a hunter knowledgeable in the local terrain. The groups follow dogs, who pick up the boars scent, while the hunter will teach about markings, boar stools, the terrain and sounds made by the boar. At the end of the day enjoy a glass or two of traditional Polish vodka around a bonfire and enjoy a boar meat bar-be-que. The perfect bonding experience.

For those with a more competitive streak, rickshaw races can be organised in the two destinations, with beers provided for the victors (and the losers!). You never know, there’s always the chance to pick up some customers along the way and make a few tips. Rickshaw racing costs from just £10 per person.

A two night package staying in a centrally located three-star hotel starts from £109 per person in Warsaw or £115 per person in Krakow, including airport transfers and personally guided nightlife tour (including first round of drinks and nightclub entry). Prices do not include flights, which are available from a selection of low-cost and traditional airlines.

Josey Walker, founder of both Stag Republic and Hen Nation said, “Poland is an emerging destination for UK stag and hen parties and offers so much for those looking for more than a traditional British stag or hen night can offer. We’ve been arranging parties in Krakow and Warsaw on an ad hoc basis for the last few years, but due to significant demand we have produced a dedicated programme for customers wishing to party in Poland.”

Walker continues: “Winter is an excellent time to take a stag or hen weekend to Poland. Not only does vodka taste better cold but there are fewer people travelling, prices are competitive and the locals are at home which means wilder nightlife.”

One reason for the introduction of the two Polish cities on the Stag Republic and Hen Nation programmes was the volume of requests coming through for twin-centre stag weekend and hen parties. Typical itinerary requests combine either Krakow or Warsaw with Budapest, where Stag Republic and Hen Nation have operated for four years.

Walker adds, “We get a lot of enquiries for a couple of nights in five-star hotels in two cities, packaged with train travel between the two and activities such as shooting and Trabant driving. A twin-centre stag or hen weekend is much more than a huge pub crawl – although we do make sure that is catered for as well.”

“Activities like boar trekking might sound like they’re aimed exclusively at Stag parties, but our experience from organising stag and hen dos in Budapest and Bratislava is that the girls are often as active as the lads,” he said.

Stag Republic and Hen Nation are responsible group travel organisers, providing 24 hour on call assistance for their guests. The printed nightlife guides provided to every group include information on how to avoid local tourist traps, as well as guides to the best bars and restaurants to visit.
