    Bucharest, Romania: The index takes into account, among other things, a night in a hostel and two rides on public transportation per day. Bucharest is the cheapest city for budget travelers, costing just $23.38 per day. But it's "definitely not Romania's most charming town," according to the site.

    Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina: Three "cheap, local beers" are included in the daily price index, and in this area that'll run you just a few bucks per day. "Sarajevo is another that is struggling to attract tourists. The location deep into the mountains is remote, but it's also gorgeous once you arrive."

    Kyiv, Ukraine: About $26 per day is all you need to have a budget stay in Ukraine, though the site notes that Kyiv "is a long way from the normal backpacking trail so it doesn't get any accidental visitors. It's also still somewhat challenging for those who don't know Russian or Ukrainian, though that part is likely to change in the coming years."

    Warsaw, Poland: $35.78 per day will get you a budget stay in Warsaw, though Price to Travel notes, "most visitors vastly prefer Krakow of the two." That said, "infrastructure for foreign tourists is improving rapidly, so visiting should be easier as time goes on."

    Zagreb, Croatia: No. 10 on the list is Zagreb, a Croatian city often overlooked for the popular towns along the coast. But at just $38.95 per day, it is a hard bargain to pass up, and is still "fairly cheap by European standards, and especially compared to Italy next door, Zagreb is a bargain and a worthwhile pause on the way to one of the beach towns."

    Bratislava, Slovakia: "You'd think that practically being walking distance from Vienna would make Bratislava a very popular stop for those on a Europe tour, but so far it's still mostly forgotten," said Price to Travel. But with a price tag of just $40.79 per day, maybe it shouldn't be.
