Those planning a stag weekend in Europe this year may be tempted to shun some of the more popular destinations in favour of a trip to Croatia.
According to Meri Matesic, director of the Croatian Tourism Board in the UK, the country has become more accessible to holidaymakers in recent years due to its increased air connections and modern roads.
This has resulted in a rise in the number of people making trips to the central European nation, which offers a range of activities including sailing, diving, kayaking and cycling.
Croatia is also home to a number of cafe bars and clubs, which are usually the main ingredient to any successful stag night.
Mr Matesic said: "Croatia is an area becoming increasingly attractive [to foreign tourists], and hosting a larger number of visitors. It has such a rich culture and renowned beauty, it is unique."
Prospective grooms might also consider a trip to nearby Hungary when planning their stag parties as the city of Budapest boasts a number of "top night spots", according to Budapestwinter.com.
