Poland offers a more affordable alternative to its other European neighbours and lacks none of the charm. Foodies will enjoy the flavoured local food, so much cheaper than in Europe. Suggested Daily Budget: 275 Polish Zloty or £45 ($59)
Travelers spend in average £20 ($26) on meals for just one day. Some of the typical dishes to try are the Pierogi (dumplings), Ogorki (pickled cucumber), Zurek (sour rye soup), Smalec (lard) and Oscypek (sheep cheese).
You’ll find plenty of cheap accomodations in Poland and decent Air BnB for less than £30 a night. There are lots of cheap hotel rooms for less than £20 a night, but luxury is very affordable here, so you might get tempted and spoil yourself.
