Meet our European Hen Weekend Organisers
Since 2005 Hen Nation, sister of the popular Stag Republic has given thousands of people a hen party to remember in Budapest and Krakow – Europe’s hottest up and coming culture and party capitals.
The secret to our success is a team of expert party organisers and local guides that know the cities from top to bottom. We work together to understand what you want from your hen party and show you a side of these cities that tourists don’t get to. We’ve even developed a range of hen party packages that take care of all the typical hen party highlights for you.
We’re a family here at Hen Nation and we’re always looking around for new ways to entertain our guests. We’re always working together to find new and exciting things to see and do in this city. So you’re in safe hands!
Meet the Hen Nation family:
Daria – Born and raised in Krakow, Daria is your typical fun-seeking Polish girl. But not so typical is her love of horse riding (she has one horse herself) which is her very own way of recharging her batteries. And she needs it because come night time you’ll see the party animal in her get released. Look for her wherever the party is. Chances are you’ll find her by the bar singing rather naughty songs with her friends.
Paul – The Canadian. Born to a Hungarian father and a German mother, Paul was always drawn to the motherland. He finally moved here permanently in 1995. He fell in love with Budapest and, just a little later, Andrea who’s Paul’s wife now. He loves sports and plays either hockey or football almost every night of the week.
Josey – Born and bred in the Southern United States, Josey came a-backpacking through Europe in the late 90’s and stayed. He loves hiking in the Buda hills, wrestling with his two sons and taking his lovely wife out for dinner at Nobu. He types with three fingers – don’t tell him we told you.
Kata – Born and raised in Budapest, Hungary, Kata is an absolute sweetheart and lives with her three children and two dogs just outside the city. She trains her dogs for competition and trains her children to massage her feet (we kid, we kid!). She is our reservations manager and has contact with all our local activity and accommodation suppliers.
Brigi – The tour manager. Born in Székesfehérvár, lives in Budapest, Hungary. Brigi’s patience is (almost) endless. She’s the one responsible for both guides and groups at the weekends having the emergency phone with herself all the time, which her dog doesn’t really like. More calls equals less attention for poor Hunor… Anyway, when something goes wrong, Brigi fixes it immediately!
Janka – Brigi’s right hand. Young and beautiful, full of energy all the time, passionate about HR. This might be the reason why she’s so good in communicating with our guides and suppliers. In her freetime (when she has) Janka likes helping women to be fit and healthy. You can always ask her for some personal advise, this is what we do at the office sometimes…
James – Your customer service agent. Born in Birmingham, moved to Pennsylvania and then to Budapest. James was only 18 when he first faced the Hungarian culture and got caught by the beauty of the capital. This is why he’s an expert by now and knows all the best activities, places and little secrets Budapest offers for a foreigner. If you have any doubt, just ask him!
Kitti – Our commercial director living in Budapest at the moment. It’s not a secret that her favourite activity (both in Budapest and Krakow) is shooting. She has tried all the different types of guns and she is still as enthusiastic as she was at the very beginning.
Anna – After coming back from her Caribbean gap year, Anna moved to Budapest and started to study tourism and hotel management. She spent her university years partying and guiding stag and hen groups. But after she got her degree, she wanted something more. This is how she became our marketing manager.
