10 Destinos de férias mais baratos na Europa (2013)

10 Cheap Vacation Destinations in Europe
European cities by price (European Backpacker Index for 2013)
Prices for most things (hostels, transportation, attractions) are fixed and certain, but prices for a “budget lunch” or a pint of beer can vary depending on where you go. Still, our estimates are based on a lot of research, and should be very close if not right on.
Note: From cheapest to most expensive

1. Bucharest, Romania (cheapest)

Definitely not Romania’s most charming town, Bucharest seems in little rush to attract visitors from the West. Fortunately, those that make the effort to come will at least be rewarded with low prices all around, which certainly help make up for the other frustrations of visiting. And that huge parliament building is worth a look. Hostels seem to be getting cheaper lately, so it’s even more appealing for the backpacker set.
Currency: Romanian leu
Cheap/good hostel: Funky Chicken Hostel = 15.47/night
Transportation: 4.00
Meals: 39.60
Drinks/Entertainment: 7.50
Attractions: 12.00
Daily Backpacker Index: RON 78.57 – US$23.38/day

2. Sofia, Bulgaria

Sofia remains a fantastic bargain among European capitals, with a very pleasant city center that is very welcoming of foreign tourists. Prices of nearly everything are very cheap, except for inbound flights from other major cities. For this reason, Sofia is out of the way for anyone who isn’t doing an extensive tour of the region.
Currency: Bulgaria Leva
Cheap/good hostel: Hostel Mostel – 13.70 (includes breakfast)
Transportation: 2.00
Meals: 13.20
Drinks/Entertainment: 4.50
Attractions: 3.00
Daily Backpacker Index: BGN36.40 = US$24.43/day

3. Krakow, Poland

Krakow continues as Europe’s best travel bargain. The low prices have drawn in larger numbers of Europeans for weekend breaks, and there’s many great and cheap hostels, bars, and restaurants to keep prices low while you are enjoying the beautiful old city and the local culture. Put this one on your list before demand forces prices up like in Prague and Budapest.
Currency: Polish Zlotych
Cheap/good hostel: Benedict Hostel – 20.00/night
Transportation: 5.60
Meals: 21.60
Drinks/Entertainment: 18.00
Attractions: 12.00
Daily Backpacker Index: PLN77.20 = US$25.06/day

4. Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina

Another Balkan-area city whose name conjures up images of its past troubles, Sarajevo is another that is struggling to attract tourists. The location deep into the mountains is remote, but it’s also gorgeous once you arrive. The Muslim Old Town next to the modern center is very interesting and incredibly welcoming.
Currency: Converted Mark (fixed, so prices below are in euros)
Cheap/good hostel: Tower Hostel – 5.56/night
Transportation: 1.80
Meals: 7.20
Drinks/Entertainment: 3.00
Attractions: 2.00
Daily Backpacker Index: €19.56 = US$25.74/day

5. Kiev, Ukraine

Speaking about out of the way destinations, Kiev is a long way from the normal backpacking trail so it doesn’t get any accidental visitors. It’s also still somewhat challenging for those who don’t know Russian or Ukrainian, though that part is likely to change in the coming years. Fortunately Kiev is quite cheap for budget travelers.
Currency: Ukraine Hryvnia
Cheap/good hostel: Magic Bus Kiev – 63.68/night
Transportation: 4.00
Meals: 90.00
Drinks/Entertainment: 42.00
Attractions: 10.00
Daily Backpacker Index: UHR209.68 = US$26.05/day

6. Riga, Latvia

It’s surprising to see a city so far north also so high on the cheap-cities list, but it turns out that Riga is quite a bargain for the backpacking set. Hostel beds in particular are very affordable, and so is pretty much everything else. Riga’s main problem is that it’s a bit out of the way for those not on an extensive tour.
Currency: Latvian Lats
Cheap/good hostel: Central Hostel – 3.70/night
Transportation: 1.00
Meals: 4.80
Drinks/Entertainment: 3.60
Attractions: 1.00
Daily Backpacker Index: LVL14.60 = US$25.74/day

7. Belgrade, Serbia

Belgrade is one of the Balkan cities that had years of trouble in the 1990s and still struggles a bit to attract tourism. You won’t find an abundance of checklist attractions here, but you will find a lively and interesting urban center with good nightlife and appealing prices.
Currency: Serbian Dinar (fixed, so prices below are in euros)
Cheap/good hostel: Avnoy Hostel – 5.29/night
Transportation: 1.28
Meals: 7.20
Drinks/Entertainment: 3.00
Attractions: 2.00
Daily Backpacker Index: €20.97 = US$27.59/day

8. Budapest, Hungary

Another excellent travel bargain, Budapest is all-around cheap and it gets high marks from visitors. The castles and cathedrals are enough, but here you also get thermal spas that are cheap enough even for the backpacking set. Hostels, in particular, are great value, but you have to get a bit out of the center to find inexpensive hotels. Touristy hotels and restaurants near the river are not budget friendly.
Currency: Hungary Forint
Cheap/good hostel: Rastel Hostel – 1890/night
Transportation: 640
Meals: 2640
Drinks/Entertainment: 960
Attractions: 1000
Daily Backpacker Index: HUF6930 = US$31.49/day

9. Warsaw, Poland

Poland’s largest city is still rather cheap overall, but most visitors vastly prefer Krakow of the two. Still, Warsaw is building a tourist infrastructure quickly these days, and this is an interesting piece of the post-Soviet puzzle in the region. The infrastructure for foreign tourists is improving rapidly, so visiting should be easier as time goes on.
Currency: Polish Zlotych
Cheap/good hostel: Chillout Hostel – 35.00/night
Transportation: 5.60
Meals: 32.40
Drinks/Entertainment: 21.00
Attractions: 15.00
Daily Backpacker Index: PLN 110.20 = US$35.78/day

10. Zagreb, Croatia

The beach resort towns of Croatia are the main attraction, so Zagreb, which is well inland, tends to be only a short stop for most. Still fairly cheap by European standards, and especially compared to Italy next door, Zagreb is a bargain and a worthwhile pause on the way to one of the beach towns.
Currency: Croatian kuna
Cheap/good hostel: Ravnice Youth Hostel – 60/night
Transportation: 24
Meals: 78
Drinks/Entertainment: 30
Attractions: 30
Daily Backpacker Index: HRK 222 = US$38.95/day
