Europe has plenty of interesting cities to visit, but most of them have become very expensive. So USA Today set out to find ten affordable European cities worth visiting. And they came up with quite a list of great choices:
Beautiful old town that is one of the few remaining fully walled and intact cities in Europe.
Reminds of Prague, but more accessible since most places within waking distance.
Ancient city with strikingly beautiful sceneries and clear blue waters. One of the new popular destinations in the Mediterranean.
A city where East meets, west. History, culture, people, energy. One of the most dynamic cities in the Mediterranean. Click here to read our recent article Explore Istanbul!
The next Prague according to some people. Has a castle that sits high atop a hill. Great white wine and local dishes.
The capital of the Orange Revolution. Situated on a hill above the Dneiper River. Here you can visit one of Christian Orthodoxy’s most important sites, the Percherska Lavra.
Accommodation and food are inexpensive.
Western Europe, more expensive than the others on the list, but cheaper to get to.
Small and welcoming city almost completely undiscovered by Americans. Has a city center perfect for strolling with cobblestone streets, outdoor cafes and restaurants.
Has a rich history, but did go through extremely tough times during the nineties. Beautiful city with a very hospitable population. But still a bit dangerous and a US State Department Travel Warning is still in effect.
Birthplace of the Solidarity movement that liberated Poland. Situated on the Baltic Sea.
