Am I correct in thinking the following of each...
Tallinn I'm told is a belter of a destination but not cheap to get to
Krakow meant to be a good all rounder
Budapest as above
Bratislava I hear is no longer cheap since the arrival of the mighty euro?
You are asking a lot of questions in fairness.
Cheap to get there is largely dependent on when you book, how flexible you are etc.
And then you are specifying recent advice only about Bratislava because maybe prices have gone up since joining the Euro.
And then you specify 4 different cities that you want the information on
I've been 2 two of them.
Tallinn is very cheap to stay in, drink is cheap. Actually found food fairly expensive in the main square, though a lot of those restaurants tend to be tourist traps anyway. Good city. I travelled there from Helsinki so don't know how pricey it is to get there directly.
Really enjoyed Krakow, definitely cheap to get to with Ryanair if you are flexible. Cheap as chips to eat and drink, great atmosphere as well. At weekends they have a very 'Irish' attitude to their drinking. Hotels v good value as well, would recommend.
Don't know about the other 2, but I'm sure they will have been mnetioned before if you use the search engine on this forum.
