At the opposite end of the scale, Sunny Beach in Bulgaria was ranked as the cheapeast city on the continent.

Hoppa researced prices of hotel rooms, bottles of wine, a pint of beer, cinema tickets, taxi fares, cinema tickets and cocktail to give an average city price across 48 countries, using two cities per country for the survey.

These costs were accumulated to give full rankings on costs. Copenhagen came in with a nightly holiday cost of €355.27, while Sunny Beach cost only  €68.29 on average, a startling difference emphasising the value of eastern Europe as opposed to the high costs of Scandinavia.
