How To Mix Culture With Fun On A Stag Party In Budapest

A stag party is not a cultural event. Fact! However it doesn’t mean you can not try to slip in some cultural entertainment like sight-seeing. If you hold the stag party abroad it would give to the participants some idea about the city they are in.

Off course don’t even try to build the whole weekend around sight-seeing or museums; probably most of the stag group won’t want to spend long hours doing that. On a stag weekend the participants are looking for lighter entertainment but might really appreciate it if the party elements are infused with some local traditions. A stag party in Budapest offers you the perfect solution to mix culture with fun.

Europe’s second longest river the Danube runs through the middle of Budapest. Budapest is a single city occupying both banks of the Danube. The Danube stretches for 30km through the city and has an average width of 400 m, providing an advantage for water traffic. Besides cargo vessels, barges and river cruise boats the local water traffic is also busy. Speed boats and pleasure boats are available.

It is possible to rent a private boat, exclusively for your use to see the sights of the city. It is possible to have it live up to its “pleasure” name and organise all manners of onboard entertainment. A two hour trip will give you enough time to take pleasure in the sights of Budapest and in enjoy food, drink and perhaps onboard entertainment.

What kind of things are on offer?

A boat trip on the Danube in Budapest is equivalent to a mini sight-seeing tour. The river presents a breathtaking view of beautiful old buildings, incredible architecture; lots of history. During a boat trip you will have the opportunity to see the many of the most well known symbols of Budapest like the Chain Bridge, the Castle District, the Parliament, the Liberty Statue, Gellért Hill, Gellért Hotel, the National Theatre, Gresham Palace (the Four Season Hotel is located within it), etc…
A good tip is try to rent the boat at sunset so you will be able to see the city in the last remnants of daylight and after dark when everything is lit up and the Danube reflect the lights of the city.
If you wish you can order catering on the boat. You can try the traditional Hungarian goulash and other traditional dishes that would add to the cultural aspect of your trip.
Onboard reasonably-priced cash bar services are usually available, where beside the international drinks you can try the traditional Hungarian drinks like Pálinka, Unicum, wine and Hungarian beer.

Budapest is not just famous just for the sights, food and drink. It is also well known for beautiful Hungarain girls! For instance, booze and eroticism usually play a big part of a stag weekend. And if you add all that to your pleasure boat it promises a real pleasure. So to really add to the glory of the stag party in Budapest, order a spectacular erotic show. During the show the stag will be involved. From the stag’s point of view it is not too humiliating and it makes the other group members laugh. These shows do not contain very strong adult scenes, but they are very spectacular and high standard erotic shows and definitely still for over 18s.

Hiring a pleasure boat on a stag party in Budapest could be the perfect solution to mix fun, party and culture.

The Benefits of Cultural Events at College

Cultural events today are a dime a dozen in educational institutions in India and abroad. A college education experience offers the student, not only academic and social opportunities, but also a variety of other experiences Lectures, seminars, get-togethers, cultural festivals, social campus events, volunteer/community activities, conferences and career fairs, are some opportunities available to students today to network and create opportunities for themselves. These events further result into social and professional relationships with their contacts from the cultural event so that both can forge a win-win relationship among them.

At college, most parents expect their wards to work hard at their studies and do well in their exams. This is more emphasized if the exam is a career defining one like the 12th standard exams. Not many parents encourage their children to network through such social and cultural events at colleges, as they feel that these events are a waste of time for both the students and the colleges, but that is not the case. Invariably parents feel that the child’s attention will be diverted from studies if they take part in cultural and social events in their college.

However, the benefits of such events are many. There are five main reasons why students should take part in social and cultural events at college. These reasons are:

– They allow the students to connect to the resources available in their schools, tap the available resources to their benefit, as the onus of tapping on to college resources for their betterment and growth rests with the students. This can only be possible by becoming involved in cultural and social events held in college.

– It helps them build the community: Being involved in such events compels students to leave their families and at times their friends behind, work with a new set of people, who may later become their friends.

– It allows them to discover their passions and strengths: Taking part of getting involved will allow the students to gauge their passions, their skills, their opportunities, strengths and weaknesses. The knowledge of all these would help them decide their career after the college education.

– It’s a resume builder: Taking part in such events will add to the resume, that is to say, the student’s contribution will be written down in the resume as an extra-curricular activity, and it will be an achievement if he wins a prize at the event.

– Sometimes, busier kids do better in all areas: This largely depends upon the individual student and cannot be generalized for all the students, but it has been found that more free time does not always equal better grades. Being involved will involve some time management by the student, which will help him in managing bigger activities in his professional life.

Finding out one’s niche on campus can be easier said than done. However, it is only by doing or getting involved in various events and activities as participants or as volunteers can the students benefit both professionally and spiritually.
