When it comes to cosmopolitan pizzazz, Europe may have it all — art, history, fashion, gourmet food — but much too often, all that comes at a high price. With fluctuating exchange rates between the dollar and the Euro (not to mention the even more walletbusting British Pound), and the inflated prices typical to any tourist hotspot, a chic European jaunt can end up taking a big bite out of your bank account. Luckily, there are a few spots that offer all the style, elegance and good eats Europe is renowned for, at prices that are a bit more budget-friendly.
With a spectacular coastline, charming hilltop towns, world-class food and wine along with plenty of style, it’s no wonder Croatia has emerged as one of the world’s most popular wallet-friendly vacation spots. Start exploring in beautiful, relaxed Dubrovnik, a historic, visitor-friendly city set on the shimmering Adriatic Sea.
