If there are those among you who think how many countries are left in Europe that do not use the Euro, this list will satisfy all your curiosity. Do not be afraid, we did not fill the list with Scandinavian countries, which are very expensive, because the Euro is not used, we followed a more logical path. Below are 7 city options for European countries that do not use the Euro, let's take a look together.

Cheapest Cities in Europe to Visit

1. Belgrade


Belgrade is one of the first places that come to mind when you set aside cities like Paris, Rome, and Barcelona commonly associated with European travel. Why is that? The primary reason for this preference is its affordability compared to many other cities. Furthermore, Belgrade is exceptionally vibrant and enjoyable! In other words, even if you aren't particularly interested in the museum of the legendary Nikola Tesla, the Belgrade Fortress, brimming with Ottoman traces offering panoramic views of the city, or the architecturally stunning churches, you can opt for this destination solely for its entertaining atmosphere and vibrant nightlife. It's worth noting that you can dine and enjoy drinks in fantastic places without breaking the bank, and a visa is not required for travel. Belgrade, you're bound to be loved!

2. Prague


The embodiment of beauty and poured into urban planning, Prague, the city responsible for Kafka's depression and his writings, makes us cry for joy as it is another city where the Euro is not used. It is impossible not to love Prague, as it is one of the first cities we travel to in our personal history and is the city that ignited our love of travel. In our opinion, this city, where you will be hit especially in the Old City, and where you will be happy to jog around the Vltava River, which runs through its middle, is one of the undisputed favorites of this list! While you're there, don't forget to see the Dancing House, which will surprise you with its architecture. The building was inspired by the dancing male and female figures. Don't say how, it happens.

3. Sarajevo


Sarajevo, the largest city in Bosnia and Herzegovina, is not a crazy and fun-oriented city, but it is a perfect spot for a cultural trip. You will encounter many historical symbols of the Turkish and Ottoman periods in the city. The city will definitely not upset you about eating and drinking. Definitely an ideal city for a 2-3 day trip. By the way, speaking of food, if you get excited and hit the road to Sarajevo after this article, don't go back without eating the legendary kebab of these places, Kapaki, you will regret it. If we couldn't satisfy both your stomach and your Euro-scared body, we would like to emphasize how affordable this city is compared to typical European cities.

4. Minsk


Minsk is a rather interesting city, with its architecture of giant buildings and imposing squares, as well as a very European feel, as a result of its secession from the Soviet Union. The old and the new are intertwined, the night is different, the day is different, and it really surprises people. You may find it in-between or unique to itself, we cannot know that, it is up to you to discover it. However, even seeing Belarus is an interesting experience in itself, so we think it should be tried. Do they use euros? Of course not.

5. Kyiv


Let's praise another former Soviet Union city: Kyiv! This is the capital of Ukraine, as well as its largest city. The general opinion of those who truly explore the city is: "Is this city really this beautiful?" Another opinion that concerns us even more is: "This place was quite affordable." Cities that are worth the journey and won't burden you with the Euro are in our field of interest. Sir, Kyiv has won us over.

Note: Due to the war in the country, the city was unfortunately badly damaged and is not safe. We wish this terrible war to end as soon as possible and Ukraine to return to its good old days!

6. Bucharest


If you have a habit of following the trends in travel, it must have caught your attention, Bucharest has been one of the most popular destinations in recent years. Almost every famous publication talks about the beauty of Bucharest and how it is an undiscovered gem. The beauty of the Old Town, the liveliness of the nightlife and the breadth of the metro network come as a bonus. Before Bucharest turns into a more popular spot among travelers and burns their pockets, it's a good idea to go and check it out.

7. Budapest


Let's conclude the list with another legend: Budapest, the amalgamation of Buda and Pest, separated by the Danube River! Budapest is undeniably a fantastic option for a leisurely or culturally enriching trip; it evokes the charm of Istanbul's "old" states. A visit to Budapest is incomplete without indulging in the world-famous thermal baths, immersing yourself in the vibrant nightlife that never fails to entertain, whether it's a weekday or a weekend, and marveling at the Parliament building illuminated at night. It's at this moment that you'll truly begin to fall in love with the city. If you have the opportunity, we highly recommend visiting Budapest during the Sziget Festival, one of Europe's most renowned music festivals. Those who can't have fun there won't find enjoyment anywhere else; we're that confident.
