Need A Holiday? 5 Budget Destinations You Need To Book This Year

Planning a weekend away but don't know where to go? These five places should definitely be on your bucket list. Bonus point: they won't set you back a fortune either.

Sofia

Nesebar

Sofia is the second oldest city in Europe and it’s stuffed full of museums and galleries. If you fancied soaking up some sun, Liulin Beach is gorgeous and has three outdoor swimming pools you can lounge about at. The further east you go, the cheaper things get, so head across to Nesebar where you can tour Bulgaria’s Black Sea coast.

Galicia

Galicia

Traveling to Galicia is like traveling to a different world. You can spend your days exploring unspoiled villages, luscious vineyards and white sanded beaches by the Cantabrian Sea. If you’re a seafood lover, the unique region offers arguably some of the best seafood in the whole of Europe.

Bosnia and Herzegovina

This is one of Europe’s less visited countries and it’s a treasure chest of architectural and natural beauty. Awaken your inner daredevil by jumping off the world-famous Stari Most Bridge. But be warned, the water in the River Neretva is pretty nippy. There’s also some amazing wine tours so rent a car and take a road trip around the Hercegovina district. Little wineries dot the entire countryside, while Jajce castle is one of the most beautiful and gothic in the world and well worth a visit, located just above a 21m waterfall.

Berlin

The German capital deserves your undivided attention, regardless of who you’re traveling with. There are endless cultural attractions, the food’s amazing, drinks are cheap and it has one of the best nightlife scenes in the entire world. The clubs are legendary, remaining open for days on end and the banks of the River Spree are flooded with beach bars open throughout the summer months. When you get to this city, you won’t ever want to leave.

Budapest

This is a must-see destination on anyone’s European bucket list. While it has become more expensive over the last few years, the prices there will still leave an abundance of cash in your pocket. Indulge in luscious cakes and lovely liquor and sweat it all out in one of their famous thermal spas. They have beautiful bath houses where you can treat yourself to massages for less than a tenner.
