Europe’s cheapest city break is a fairytale destination



Searching for a cheap city break for this summer? You’re in luck because the team at Post Office Travel Money have just released their ranking of this year’s cheapest destinations.

The study looks at 37 major European cities and analyses the cost of accommodation, sightseeing and food and drink to find the cheapest destinations.

This year, Vilnius, the beautiful capital city of Lithuania, regained its position at the top of the table. British tourists will find coffee for just £1.82, beer for £2.77 and art gallery entry at just £7.07.

Vilnius’ Old Town looks like it could have fallen out of the pages of a fairytale while its quirky Museum of Illusions offers fun for all the family.
