Which European city is the most affordable to visit?


(CNN) — What are your priorities when you're planning a European city break? Good food? Culture galore? Interesting history?

 (CNN) -当你计划去欧洲城市度假时,你的优先顺序是什么?好的食物吗?丰富的文化?还是有趣的历史吗?

More likely than not, you'll also prioritize price when you're considering where to jet off to for a weekend getaway.


The UK's Post Office has posted its annual City Costs Barometer, comparing what visitors paying in pound sterling will cough up for a weekend enjoying all that every European city has to offer -- from the cost of a cup of coffee to entry fees to the city's top gallery to two nights in three-star accommodation for two adults.


Coming up on top on this travel list? It's Vilnius, in Lithuania, which you may recall from that infamous tourism campaign ...


Lithuania's capital is also known for its picturesque medieval old town, baroque architecture, hip street art and varied history.


The Post Office reports that in Lithuania that you can travel to and from the city's airport for just £1.75 ($2.28), plus two nights' accommodation in a three-star hotel for two adults will set you back just £70 ($91). The total cost, the Post Office reports, is £147.35 ($191.85).


At the other end of the spectrum, Reykjavik, Iceland's capital, is Europe's most expensive city.


That'll be little surprise to anyone who's visited. Iceland's known for being pricey -- all in all, you'll spend roughly £462.61 ($602.33) for a weekend in the land of ice and snow.

Interestingly, prices have fallen across the board since last year. Costs in Venice, Italy -- which keeps making headlines for its overtourism problems -- fell over 23% in the last 12 months.


It's now at number 35 on the list.

  • 它现在排在榜单的第35位。

"Canny travelers can save hundreds of pounds by comparing the cost of accommodation and picking a city where hotel prices are low and where meals, drinks and sightseeing prices are also cheap," says Andrew Brown of Post Office Travel Money, in a statement. "This applies to most cities in Eastern Europe but also to Porto, Athens and Lisbon."

 “精明的旅行者可以通过比较住宿成本,选择一个酒店价格较低、餐饮和观光价格也较便宜的城市,从而节省数百英镑,”邮局差旅费”(Travel Money)的安德鲁•布朗(Andrew Brown)在一份声明中表示。“这适用于东欧的大多数城市,但也适用于波尔图、雅典和里斯本。”

Brown also advises travelers departing to and from Britain to keep a close eye on currency fluctuations as Britain prepares to leave the European Union at the end of March.
