This Eastern Europe country recognized as the best vacation destination this year due to low prices
Few people realize it, but there is a wonderful European country with budget prices and a rich cultural heritage just a few hours' flight from the UK. It is not among the top resort destinations in the summer, but it is definitely worth the attention of visitors in the season when beach vacations give way to long walks and excursions.
According to the prestigious Lonely Planet "Best Value" rating, Poland is the best vacation destination in Europe, Express writes. Tourists looking for architectural and natural attractions will definitely enjoy it here.
A Lonely Planet representative said, "Poland is one of the most affordable destinations in Europe, offering a great selection of quality travel experiences. But don't stop with Poland's timeless countryside. Follow the trails in the Carpathian Mountains that wind through villages adorned with ancient wooden churches."
According to the publication, a meal at a mid-priced restaurant costs about £9.82, which is much cheaper than most UK restaurants in the same segment.
Examples of old European architecture adorn every corner of the country, and there are affordable coastal resorts in the north.
Poland is known for its craft products, breweries, and fun Christmas festivals. If you're looking for excursions to fascinating cities where urban style meets architectural monuments at affordable prices, Gdansk, Krakow, and Warsaw are the places to visit.
