Travelling Europe on a budget

To experience different European cultures on one trip is possible without spending a lot of money. Travelling Europe on a budget with as well as achieving cultural immersion, you need to choose your destinations and ways of traveling wisely. Some budget Europe tours have as much comfort and abundance of experiences as the luxury ones. We offer cheap packages to travel Central European and Balkan countries by bus visiting the main highlights of the region. A trip to Europe for cheap is not a myth!

There are numerous ways to travel in Europe on budget. One of the best ways is to choose one of the European tour packages offering visits to the country or countries you want to explore. There are so many budget travel packages to choose from that it can be a difficult task to make your mind.

Some tour packages and countries are more budget-friendly than others

Romania is a budget-friendly country on all levels, but the experiences it offers are fantastic. You can find preserved medieval villages there, fairytale castles and unique landscapes for a fraction of the price of other areas of Europe. On top of this Romania is home to what’s known as Dracula’s Castle in  Transylvania on a cliff against the dramatic backdrop of the Carpathian Mountains.

Poland is another country for budget-friendly travel. Visit this Eastern European country to explore Jewish heritage, medieval architecture, history, food and cities like no other. This beautiful country has a long and heroic history of thousands of years, worth exploring deeper and its nature with the beautiful Baltic Sea in the north and Carpathian mountains in the south,   is indeed a  gem.

Hungary is among the often overlooked treasures of Central Europe. A few days tour will open your heart to the beauty of this country.

Visiting Balkans can be fascinating. It is a very diverse region in Southeast Europe which experienced a lot of conflicts in recent history, and it was almost impossible to travel to the area from 1991 to 2001.

A lot has changed since this horrible time and most of the countries fully recovered, and tourism is on the rise. 

Low prices, warm-hearted locals offering tasty food and stunning sceneries are what makes this region so attractive.

The usual time to travel to the Balkans is spring and summer, but winter is fantastic in some places like the winter resort Bansko in Bulgaria. City tours are an option all year round: the capital cities are great spots in all countries.

Food lovers can expect to have a big selection of various food to try on a trip. One thing all Balkan countries have in common: they love hearty food, especially meat. On the other hand, vegetarians will find good options too, as the Balkans are also well known for their fresh salads.

The region's cooks have incorporated Venetian, Austrian, and Hungarian flavors into the mixing pot. You can enjoy crumbed schnitzel in Ljubljana, spicy Hungarian goulash in Novi Sad, seafood risotto in Split, octopus carpaccio in Budva,   flaky burek in Sarajevo, a meaty Turkish kebab in Kosovo, blissful baklava in Tirana and stuffed peppers in Skopje. Locally produced olive oil, truffles, grass-grazed lamb and abundance of fresh fruit and vegetables crown it all.

Talking about the drinks, the Rakia (kind of brandy) is a typical drink, but also you should taste the wines and the local beers: they are good, too.

Each Balkan country has its unique flavor

Slovakia is a small ice-hockey crazy nation with a unique blend of German, Magyar, Czech and Slovak influences. This is evident in its capital Bratislava as well as in the skiing resorts of the mountain range, the High Tatra.

Slovenia has both the Adriatic Sea and the Alps, Slavic and Germanic influences and a well-educated population speaking foreign languages to welcome visitors from all around the globe.

Traveling all along the Adriatic coast you will admire the Rocky Mountains, and terracotta-roofed towns, plunging spectacularly into crystal-clear waters and Croatia's myriad islands providing quiet beaches and seclusion.

Dubrovnik deserves special attention

You can visit Dubrovnik a hundred times, but you will never stop admiring the stunning beauty of the old town: the city’s limestone streets, baroque architecture and the sounds of the Adriatic. One never gets tired by a walk along the ancient city walls that protected the capital for centuries.

All this beauty can be visited and experienced without breaking a bank if you wisely choose your travel package. A number of budget European tour packages offer tours without compromising on experiences and comfort.

testimonials
I wish to thank you for all your help in planning our trip from St. Petersburg to Moscow. All went very well. The train ride was uneventful. We did need some assistance from the concierge at our hotel in St. Petersburg in deciphering the signs in the railroad station. We had her write our the words "departure" and "arrival" in Russian, so we would know what track our train would be leaving.
