Widely regarded as two of the most beautiful cities in Europe, it’s no wonder tourists are choosing Budapest and Prague for a cheap city break in 2016. Effortlessly blending old and new, Hungary’s capital city is an extensive World Heritage Site split by the majestic River Danube.

Prague brings you all the atmosphere of Central Europe in one easily explored city. From ancient castles, Gothic churches to the famous Czech beer and great nightlife.

A report by Post Office Travel Money in 2015 found that Budapest ranked as one of the cheapest European cities for food and drink. On average, a bottle of beer costs just £1.38 while a glass of house wine costs £0.92p. A three course evening meal for two including a bottle of house wine costs £25.65 – almost half the cost of the average price in London.

Prague remains the overall cheapest European city for meals and drinks - a cost that is impossible to avoid on a city break. A bottle of beer costs £1.13, a glass of wine just £1.42 and a three course evening meal for two with bottle of house wine just £23.94 – the cheapest in Europe.
