7 European Countries Where Your Dollar Will Go Further

stm55310a8c3220420150417-1If you’re aware of the euro weakening considerably against the dollar in recent months, you’ve likely contemplated a trip to Europe. But one question remains: In which destinations will your dollar go the absolute furthest?

The short (and quite welcome) answer is that all of the 19 Eurozone countries are virtually on sale, and no matter where you go, you’re essentially getting a sizable discount on ground costs like hotel, food, and activities. According to Tom Meyers of EuroCheapo, a website devoted to visiting Europe on a budget, “That 65 euro dinner is probably still going to be about 65 euros. However, it’s going to cost only about $70, rather than $104 (in 2008 dollars).”

Nevertheless, some places offer more value than others, whether because they’ve struggled economically or remain virtually undiscovered by tourists. From the Iberian Peninsula to the Baltic Sea, here are the best Eurozone countries for stretching your dollar.
