Travel to Cities on the Cheap in Europe - Part Two

Published: 03/06/2013

This is the second part in a series looking at cities to travel to in Europe where you do not need to have much money in order to have a decent holiday. In part one, we already mentioned some fine options for this, but in case that was not enough, we will mention some other alternatives, including:

Sofia, Bulgaria

Sofia in Bulgaria is another real gem for people who are looking for people who are looking for a cheap city break in Europe. It is possible to have a good time here for as little as £20 per day. There are some good hostel options in the city, and it is possible to find somewhere to stay for less than £10. Food and drink is also cheap here, and there are plenty of free attractions that people can enjoy during the day. Sofia offers a good mix of modern and historical architecture, and there are plenty of exciting things going on in the city.

Kiev, Ukraine

Visitors to Kiev from Western Europe are likely to feel like they have travelled to somewhere really exotic. This city played a crucial role in the history of Europe, but it has its own culture and way of doing things. This makes it a great place to visit because it is just so interesting. It is possible to find accommodation in the city for as little as £8 and tourists can live fairly well on £20 per day. The one thing that people need to be prepared for when they travel to Kiev is that most of the locals do not speak any English – this can make a trip here even more exciting.

Istanbul, Turkey

Istanbul is one of the most important cities in the world, and it is famous because it is located on two continents – Europe and Asia. This is also one of the largest cities in Europe with a population of about 19 million people. It is a wonderful destination for people who want to experience a bit of culture along with plenty of exciting nightlife. Istanbul is a bit more expensive to some of the cities we have mentioned here, but it is definitely “doable” on a tight budget. Visitors can easily have a good time here for as little as £30 per day – it should be possible to find a room in a hostel for about £12.

Tallinn, Estonia

Tallinn is one of the most interesting and vibrant cities in Europe. The country of Estonia feels very Scandinavian, but it is much cheaper to visit than places like Sweden. The city of Tallinn is like something out of a fairy story, and there are plenty of exciting bars and nightclubs if people are looking for entertainment after dark. There are some good value accommodation options and it should be easy to find somewhere to stay for about £10. It is possible to come here and have a good time for about £25 per day.
