10 Cheapest Cities in Europe

If you are traveling on a budget then you can find the perfect getaway in Europe. Even though, the word “cheap” is not the first thing that springs to mind when it comes to “the old continent”. Still, there are some cities that are not that popular but are worth visiting. Once you go there you will be wondering why you had not considered going there before. I just think that everyone should be more open to exploring, you cannot call yourself a traveler if you only visit the capital cities or the most tourist hubs.
Some of the cities on the list might not be the cheapest but they are easily accessible, and you can make a stop while you are heading to visit some larger cities, or you can go on a day tour if you are somewhere close. Find the best tours on TripAdvisor here:
1 | Budapest, Hungary
I was very surprised to find out that Budapest is really cheap. We had a really great experience, perfect accommodation and a really luxury experience there.
2 | Karlovy Vary, Czech Republic
Karlovy Vary is actually a very expensive city that is 130 km away from Prague, but once you are in Prague you can find a day trip tour to Karlovy Vary. This is a spa town which is very famous for its hot springs.
3 | Prague, Czech Republic
Prague is also a very cheap city that is worth visiting. Some even say that this capital is equal of Paris when it comes to its beauty. It is a historical city with the best beer in Europe.
4 | Istanbul, Turkey
Istanbul is a city that should definitely be on your radar. This grand city has a lot of history and architecture that must be seen.
5 | Vigo, Spain
Vigo is a port city in Galicia, and also one of the largest cities in this area. This city is easily reachable from anywhere thanks to its massive port and its economic importance.
6 | Santiago de Compostela, Spain
Santiago de Compostela is the last stop of the epic Camino de Santiago. I did not walk the pilgrimage trail though, but I was fascinated by the beauty of this cultural capital.
7 | Bratislava, Slovakia
Most of the things are cheap in Bratislava. You will definitely not spend a lot if you decide to visit this city which is lately gaining popularity.
8 | Zagreb, Croatia
Zagreb is a very beautiful city that is worth visiting. The fact that you can reach the Plitvice Lakes National Park is a reason enough for this city to go on your travel list.
9 | Ljubljana, Slovenia
Ljubljana is the green capital of Europe. This is very laid back city with a perfect atmosphere you can spend hours walking the city and admiring the stunning architecture.
10 | Trieste, Italy
Trieste is a city that was very popular in the past and unfortunately it is forgotten because most tourist head off to Venice or Milan. This is a very charming city with lots of things to offer. There is a beautiful sea view and remarkable architecture.
Have you had a chance to visit any of these cities? What are your plans for this summer?
