According to the recent Post Office Travel Money study, Brits can travel on a tight budget and still have a bloody boozy time. Sorry, liver.

In formerly abandoned buildings around the Hungarian capital hide the city’s most unassuming pubs and bars. The names ‘ruin pubs’ or ‘ruin bars’ are all-telling, but while their facades are rundown, the vibe’s anything but old.

Krakow’s the second largest and one of the oldest cities in Poland. Don’t miss the quirky boho bars popping up in the old Jewish Quarter and the lush cocktail bars around the city centre, where you can down a Tom Collins for £3.79, bargain!

Tallinn Old Town is an UNESCO World Heritage Site, which basically means that it’s so awesome that a bunch of worldly folks want to protect it.
