Which one came out on top?

Eastern Europe offers some of the cheapest holiday destinations on the continent, according to the 10th annual City Costs Barometer from Post Office Travel Money— and they’re also pretty stunning.

Using price estimates from National and Regional Tourist Offices and average accommodation costs from Hotels.com, the Post Office City Costs Barometer 2018 looked at the total cost of a weekend trip to 36 cities in Europe to determine which ones offer the best value for money.

Along with the average cost of two nights of accommodation for two adults in a three-star hotel, in order to come up with the total cost, the study looked at the average price of typical tourist items, including: a three-course meal for two with a bottle of house wine, a cup of coffee, a coca-cola, a beer, and a glass of wine, a return bus or train transfer from the airport to the city, a 48-hour city travel card, a sightseeing tour, and a visit to a leading museum, a gallery, and a heritage attraction.

The cheapest destination came in at a highly affordable £164.80 ($232.62) for the entire weekend, while the second cheapest was close behind at £165.53 ($233.65).
