The cheapest European city for a weekend break that’s half the price of Paris

In comparison, a weekend break in Paris – the fourth most expensive city in Forbes Advisors research – would cost £706.

Krakow — famous for its medieval Old Town and cheap craft beer — topped the list of cheap city breaks when factoring in two-day excursions, a taxi and food, and round-trip flights and accommodation.

As the second cheapest city, Sofia ended up in Bulgaria, where alcohol was cheaper than in Kraków but taxis were more expensive (£18 one way, as opposed to £5 in Warsaw).

The top 10 suggests that Central and Eastern Europe and the Balkans are the cheapest travel destinations.

Laura Howard of Forbes Advisor said: “Destinations like Minsk, Prague and Sarajevo also have a lot to offer, from fascinating history to amazing cuisine and beautiful architecture.”

However, costs can vary significantly between capital cities, meaning holidaymakers should do their research first. Although accommodation in Sarajevo was the cheapest at £68 for a couple for two nights, flights to the capital of Bosnia and Herzegovina were much more expensive at £396.

The study found that a weekend break to affordable cities like Warsaw, Vilnius and Prague is cheaper than a two-day stay in London – where travelers save on airfare but expensive accommodation pushes the total cost to £538.
