To save you some trouble, here are top five budget countries to visit in Europe.
This culturally rich East European destination is a treat for nature enthusiasts and city-life lovers alike. If authentic outings interest you, plan a hiking/camping trip to the Tatra Mountains. Otherwise, catch a train to the super happening cities of Warsaw (capital) or Krakow, or the lovely laid-back town of Gdansk. Daily budgetary requirement is as low as $25-35.
You will be sweetly surprised when we tell you that Budapest isn't the only cheap and happening place to visit in Hungary. So, after you are done with the amazing capital city, go and check the stunning Drebecen, where food and accommodations are even cheaper than Budapest. Eger and Siofok also count as favorites among foreign travelers. One-day stay will cost you between $35-45.

This uber-popular honeymoon destination has some must-visit cities including the likes of Santorini, Athens, and Rhodes. And, you can have a good time at an average per day budget of $45-55.
Bulgaria is definitely the go-to place in Europe for budget travelers. Once you're done with the must-visit capital city of Sofia and the popular Sunny Beach, head to the charming Rila mountains and the Seven Rila Lakes. And if you are a fan of architecture and museums, you must take out time for the city of Plovdiv. Average per day expense would be $20-30.
When looking for cheap European options, Romania is a no-brainer. And, if nightlife is your thing, head to the vibrant city of Cluj. The capital city of Bucharest shouldn't be missed either.

Average daily-budget of $40-50 would suffice.
