Travel to Cities in Europe on the Cheap - Part 1

Published: 03/03/2013

It is not necessary to spend a lot of money in order to enjoy the delights of Europe. In fact, if people know what they are doing, they will be able to explore this part of the world without spending very much money at all. In this series, we are going to be looking at some of the best cities in Europe for people who want to get away on holiday, but do not have much spare cash to pay for this.

Krakow, Poland

Krakow is one of the top destinations in Europe for people who are looking for a lot of fun on a tight budget. This is the second largest city in Poland, and it is one of the oldest cities in Europe. It is possible to find decent accommodation here for as little as £13 per night, and you would easily be able to survive here, and still have a good time, for about £30 per day – if you do not drink alcohol and you are prepared to eat cheap local food, you will be able to do this for even less. This is a truly beautiful city, and there are plenty of things that you will be able to do free or for very little money.

Riga, Latvia

Riga is one of the most attractive cities in Europe, and it is a surprisingly cheap place to visit. This is the capital of Latvia, and it is the largest urban area of all the Baltic States – one third of the population of Latvia live in Riga. There are plenty of cheap hotels in the city and you can get to stay in a hostel for as little as £8 per night. Meals and drinks are wonderfully cheap, and all the main attractions in the city are either free or reasonably priced. You could easily come to Riga and have a good time without spending more than £20 per day – if you have a bit more money you really could live like a king in the city.

Bucharest, Romania

Bucharest is currently the cheapest city in Europe to visit. This is the largest city in South Eastern Europe, and it is one of the most famous cities in the world. At the moment, Bucharest is really booming, and there is a great deal of energy and excitement about the place. They have some superb nightlife options. This is probably the best time to visit this part of the world because the pace of change here means that in a few years it could be overcrowded with tourists. You could currently get by in Bucharest for about £18 per day – you will find nice accommodation available for as little as £10. Food and drink is very reasonably priced, and you will find plenty of free things to do during the day. It is also possible to find cheap deals that will help you save money when travelling from the UK to Romania.
