When looking for vacation destinations, British citizens often prefer budget options. Cheap airfare, budget accommodation and inexpensive beer always attract the British.

Krakow, Poland, has taken the top spot in the ranking in the new Which? magazine. Krakow received as many as five stars for its cultural sites and attractions as it has many historical gems: from the famous royal castle to the town hall tower, DailyStar writes.

It is emphasized that vacationers can enjoy coffee or wine in the city's medieval square, the largest of its kind in Europe. In addition, the city's lively Jewish quarter is filled with original shops and private galleries, and history buffs can also enjoy the aviation museum and underground museum. The salt mine in Wieliczka that is popular with tourists is not far from the city.

Krakow also received five stars for food and drink and was among the top three places with the highest ratings for value for money, receiving four stars. It is emphasized that it has one of the cheapest average hotel room prices among all destinations.

Some traditional dishes in Krakow include dumplings with cheese, often served with sour cream. In addition, traditional sausage is popular, and some establishments have fantastic vodka for those who like to drink. At PintPrice, a beer costs just £1.50.

At the same time, one of the leading places was taken by the Spanish city of Valencia, which received five stars for its attractions. The city boasts a charming old town along with the "futuristic" City of Arts and Sciences.

Valencia also received five stars for food and drink, with one traveller calling it a "gourmet's paradise." This is not surprising when the city has a lot of paella and seafood dishes. Of course, wine in Spain is very tasty, and a pint in Valencia will cost you only £3.64.

The Spanish city also received four stars for ease of transportation as it is easy to get to both the beach and the city centre. At the same time, a hotel room can cost tourists an average of £113 per night.

Stockholm in Sweden is behind these two great cities. The Swedish capital received five stars for ease of transportation, four stars for food and drink, accommodation, and cultural attractions.

Visitors praised the ABBA Museum, and the Vasa Museum also proved popular, offering the opportunity to see a salvaged 17th-century warship. However, the city lost points in terms of price-quality ratio as a pint of beer will cost you as much as 6 pounds.
