Five Great Cheap Vacation Spots In Europe

Updated on October 12, 2011

It is worth noting some of the outstanding cities in the world that offer all around exceptional travel value.

A pleasure trip can be a good way to escape from the day-to-day mundane-ness of your usual every day living and can be a true breath of fresh air just about any time of year. Quite a few people have the false impression, however, that escaping to another city for a day or two is simply too high-priced and unreasonable. The reality is, it is completely possible to enjoy an low-priced city break - the trick is finding a value spot where you won't have to hurt your pocket book. We've chosen five of the top European cities where you can break free from it all without going penniless.

Berlin at night

This German capital is chocked full of superb points of interest, and many of them are unbelievably reasonably priced. It's possible to get a steeply reduced museum pass for the many great places on Museum Island, as an example, letting you to take in a bit of tradition without spending a fortune. Lodging in Berlin comes in a wide range, but there are plenty of inexpensive options.

Bruges Belgium is by the Sea

The ancient city of Bruges is Situated right on the sea, and is strikingly beautiful - and wonderfully inexpensive. There is a variety of fascinating monuments to take in for absolutely free; the popular Belgian pastime of savoring quality beer is also a cheap way to enjoy the city. Flights into Bruges - in addition to many hotels - are very reasonably priced.

Prague has such an Amazing Beauty and History

The inexpensiveness of spending time in Prague has dramatically enhanced this city's reputation as a vacation destination. It's little wonder, considering its excellent cultural and historical attractions. Throw in the many low-cost hotels and affordable dining options, and it's easy to see why Prague has become a popular low cost destination.

Budapest is so Beautiful with much to do

Few European cities provide as many last second hotel offers as Budapest. Between its lively night life and its many engaging points of interest, the capital of Hungary can make for a genuinely splendid holiday. Cheap hotels are plentiful in Budapest, so set this hot city on the top of your list.

Gdansk has Beautiful Beaches on the Baltic Sea

The majority of beach cities are costly to see, but Gdansk - located on the Baltic Sea - is an excellent exception. Experienced vacation goers know that this European city is brimming with last second hotel deals, and that many of Gdansk's greatest charms - like its Royal Route and its remarkable pier - are completely free ways to immerse oneself in an unforgettable journey.

      And Ginger, sorry for the long lag. I used either http://www.hotelwizards.com just to throw in a plug. I think these sites are strong because of their cheaper hotels.

      Thanks for the input wanderlust. I agree that they aren't the cheapest. I am headed to Kiev soon so you guys can expect an article about that. :)

      I wouldn't say that Berlin or Bruges are cheap, but as Eastern Europe - you are right. Right now it is a good opportunity to visit any Eastern European country. They improved their service but prices are low.

      Thanks Lenka. I just read your hub about Banska. I happen to LOVE Eastern Europe and agree there are many great places there!

      Nice hub, but you can find many more gems in Central and Eastern Europe and they would be definitelly less expensive than f.e. Prague. I would suggest Krakow in Poland, for instance, or Slovak medieval royal towns like Levoca, Banska Stiavnica or Kremnica or beautiful towns in southern Bohemia, like Cesky Krumlov. It´s always useful to find a hub on a particular country´s places of interest, if you can :-)

      How funny. Bruges one place I really want to see soon. I am have spent a lot of time in Eastern Europe and aside from Paris, rather fast trips (weekend-ish) in Western Europe. I wish you luck in getting there!

      The only one of those destinations I've been to is Bruges, and I loved it! So far my European trips haven't got far enough East or South to get to the rest, but maybe next time...

      Yen, They are a way lower budget compared to a Paris or London. :) Plane tickets are obviously better in the off seasons, but there are a lot of great deals when you book in advance.
