2. Krakow, Poland
Many budget travelers may think Europe is financially inaccessible, but Krakow, the second largest city in Poland, (and one of its oldest) is the ideal place to visit because of its rich history and relatively low costs.
For eating, try the many “Bar Mleczny” (or milk bars): no-frills, cafeteria-style eateries that are popular with students. They serve traditional polish meals as low as $2. In the Old Town, a good central location to see historical attractions such as Wawel Castle or the medieval square of Rynek Główny, there are many hostels that charge $10-15 a night for a dorm room.
