Travel clients disgruntled by inflated pricing may find better value for money in these destinations
Warsaw has topped a new study compiling the top 10 cheapest capital cities in Europe to travel to.
The research carried out by financial experts, Gambling ’N Go, considered factors including flights, one night’s stay in a hotel, and a three-course meal for two in a mid-range restaurant.
Warsaw, a city full of history and culture, came in at a total price of US$202.
The top 10 cheapest cities are:
- Warsaw, Poland
- Madrid, Spain
- Sofia, Bulgaria
- Riga, Latvia
- Prague, Czech Republic
- Budapest, Hungary
- Vienna, Austria
- Berlin, Germany
- Bucharest, Romania
- Rome, Italy
For a touch of the Mediterranean, Spain’s capital Madrid, in second place totalled US$231, faring cheaper than other Spanish cities such as Barcelona, and one of the cheapest cities in Western Europe.
Sofia, Bulgaria, one of the continent’s lesser known gems and home to a plethora of options from natural beauty to architectural wonders such as the St Alexander Nevski Cathedral, took third place, with a total price of US$250.
Gambling ‘N Go 's Leo Coleman said: “Fortunately, there’s many beautiful cities that won’t break the bank despite having so much to offer, whether that’s enjoying an inexpensive beer in Prague’s Old Square or indulging in delicious Polish food in Warsaw.”
On the opposite end of the scale, Vaduz, Liechtenstein, is the most expensive capital for a city break with a total average cost of US$1,230.
