Bulgarian capital Sofia is Europe's cheapest tourist city for 2013, according to a survey from Price of Travel.
The survey has established that the cost of a centrally located, well-reviewed three-star hotel, plus the cost of transportation, some activities, food and drink in Sofia would come in at under USD 50 a day, according to USA Today.
The survey has noted that “airfare to Sofia is somewhat expensive, and there aren't a ton of good alternative options, though Sofia does have connecting service from other European cities on low-cost carriers such as easyJet and Wizz Air.”
“If you're thinking of relying on train or bus service from another, more affordable European entry point, know that it will likely be a long, long journey,” it says.
