Wanting to explore Europe but don’t have the luxury of time to do it? Always dream about exploring the unique areas in Europe but unsure about how to do it? Well, it is possible to fulfil your dream and you are going to find out “How To Plan For 14 Days Eastern Europe Trip Within €1000 Euro Budget” in this article 🙂
Typically Europe can be an expensive area to travel. However, if you follow my plan for your 14 days Eastern Europe trip which includes visiting Balkans area countries, you will realise that it can be cheaper than what you would expect.
Disclaimer: The budget for accommodation will not be added in this article as it can vary a lot and is really depends on individual preference from a bed in a hostel (cheap) to a 5-stars luxury hotel (expensive). And of course, shopping expenses will not be inclusive in this €1000 budget too. 🙂
Getting the flights to Europe (Example from Asia)
Depending on where you are travelling from to Europe, taking Asia for example, I usually prefer travelling with the Middle Eastern airlines. They offer good timing (departing around midnight and arrive in Europe in the early morning, which let you earn an extra day in Europe), quality services and most importantly, they offer competitive prices, usually ranged from €550 to €850.
Day 1: Flying to Europe (Budget: €588 to €849)
From Singapore to European cities. I would usually choose Emirates or Qatar Airways due to the competitive prices and good transit time, but recently for my trip to Europe, I tried Turkish Airlines (even though they are consider as European Airlines) and I must say I am truly impressed by their superb quality services, especially the meal services were AMAZING! The airline crew was super friendly and attentive too. When I was getting on my transit flight from Istanbul to Budapest, the pilot even opened his window and wished me a good flight! Very personalised services and friendly people. Perhaps amazing is an understatement to describe my wonderful experience with Turkish Airlines.

Day 1 – 3: Budapest, Hungary
Budapest, the capital city of Hungary and in my opinion is the best place to start your Eastern Europe adventure. The city is chill, relax and romantic. It is divided into two sides by the Danube river, Buda – the old city area with hilly roads and castles, and Pest – the new city area with many fascinating architectures.
