Travelling in Europe can be not only exciting, but also quite affordable, even on a limited budget. There are many attractive destinations for Ukrainians who want to explore new cultures and landscapes without spending a lot of money. 


According to travel experts at Travel Off Path, as the world is fully recovering from the pandemic and is expecting a tourist boom, many countries are raising prices in anticipation of tourists, but there are still destinations that are still attractive and, most importantly, will not require a lot of money.


So, we're going to tell you about the budget cities in Europe that are ideal for short and economical trips.


Budapest, Hungary


The capital of Hungary is one of the most picturesque cities in Europe, where elements of different cultures have intertwined, giving it a special grandeur and beauty. Staying in Budapest allows you to feel the atmosphere of both Vienna and Prague. It is also home to the famous thermal baths. Budapest is also famous for its exquisite, though underrated, cuisine. 


Despite its growing popularity, the cost of living in the city remains relatively low. Tourists can enjoy the city's attractions, inexpensive spas and a wide range of bars and restaurants.


For Ukrainians, free travel on local public transport will be a pleasant addition.


Tirana, Albania


The capital of Albania has the potential to become one of the leaders of the European list of cities worth visiting. For many years, the city remained isolated due to the dictatorial regime. But today Tirana has become an open and welcoming city for travellers. Its architecture is unique and historically significant, although it bears heavy traces of the past.


Bucharest, Romania


The Romanian capital is deservedly considered one of the safest and most affordable cities in Europe. It immediately captivates with its atmosphere and allows you to immerse yourself in the unique Romanian culture. It is worth noting that in 2024 Romania partially integrated into the Schengen area.


This city is usually overlooked when planning trips to Europe, which makes it a great choice for a budget traveller. In the Romanian capital, you can enjoy not only beautiful buildings in the Belle Epoque style, but also some of the lowest prices for accommodation and food in the EU.

Sofia, Bulgaria


The capital of Bulgaria is one of the oldest and most peaceful cities in Europe. It is home to important UNESCO World Heritage sites. Sofia, as one of the oldest European capitals, has a rich cultural heritage to boast of and fascinate every visitor.


The city offers some of the lowest prices in Europe for both accommodation and food, and is also rich in historical monuments and can offer tourists a unique blend of history and modernity.


Porto, Portugal


This picturesque Portuguese city, known for its vibrant culture, needs no introduction as it is already recognised as one of the most beautiful in the world. Porto is also attractive for its affordable prices, making it an ideal choice for travellers on a budget.


We also recommend visiting Lisbon whenever possible. The city attracts tourists with its hilly streets, picturesque views and friendly people. Lisbon is a great choice for those looking for cultural enrichment without spending too much money. Dinner in a traditional restaurant will cost you an average of 10-15 euros.


Before planning your trip, we recommend taking out a travel insurance policy. This will not only protect you from unforeseen medical expenses, but also give you peace of mind during your trip. This approach not only saves you money, but also significantly reduces stress while travelling, making your holiday more enjoyable and safer.


Moreover, taking out insurance is a simple and affordable way to protect yourself and your finances. So don't forget to include a policy in your list of priorities when planning your trip. By the way, you can find insurance with suitable conditions and at favourable prices here.
