Constanta is definitely off the beaten path for stag dos, but that doesn't mean you won't find plenty of drinks, girls and beaches to make your stag weekend amazing. This city is all about the Mamaia resort and the Black Sea beaches, hanging out in the sun all day with your mates, and clubbing all night. Mamaia is thumping all summer, with parties that last all night and into the next morning, so you can roll out of the club and back onto the beach to sleep it off. The locals are friendly, and lots of them speak English, so you'll have no problem getting around, hiring a boat to take you to sea, or ordering the local wine (inexpensive and delicious!).
Constanta is a port city, founded in 600 BC - it's the oldest city in Romania where people still live, so expect Greco-Roman and Ottoman ruins and architecture and lots of history! Today, as Romania's third largest city, Constanta is an important cultural and commercial centre with a burgeoning jazz scene and wild nightlife in the Mamaia resort area along the beach. Between the gorgeous beaches, the grand casino, and the museums, everyone will find something to tickle their fancy on this Constanta stag do.

Flights take a lazy 3 hours and 25 minutes, so kick back and look forward to a crazy Constanta stag do weekend. This is the kind of place you go to unwind and unplug, so there's no need to worry about rental cars or transport at all once you arrive: everything's walk-able and the public transportation is regular and easy to navigate if you want to explore further out.
The beach is going to be central to this Constanta stag do, so get out the towel and enjoy the heat! Charter a boat out into the beautiful Black Sea, lounge in the sun, or swim at Mamaia beach (there are literally no rocks in the water at this beach). If you want to sightsee, the Old Town areas are the place to be: from the top of the local mosque you can get a 360 view of Constanta (avoid shorts and sleeveless shirts if you want to get in), check out the Roman mosaic from 4AD, walk out for photo-ops at the Genoese lighthouse, and definitely take a trip to the old Casino for an awesome sunset view and a taste of what the city was like in its heyday.
Hop on an ATV for a sandy ride around the beach, tour hidden caves in nearby Mangalia, and camp out like a true bohemian at the Vama Veche beach, where you'll meet all kinds of crazy locals and tourists drinking around their campfires. When it comes to nightlife in Constanta, you can choose your speed, from chill to wild. The Old Fashioned is definitely the most popular cocktail bar in town, so you have to go for at least one, but there are bars and clubs all around the edges of the beach so you can take your pick and stumble from door to door if you want. For a night you'll never forget, get VIP access to the best clubs in Mamaia, head out to the strip clubs and watch the luscious dancers perform all night, then stumble back to Club Ego to party until sunrise with sound of the Black Sea lapping up on the sand just outside…
