The World's Most Expensive Capitals
If you are planning to visit the Old Continent, you'd better start saving. According to an article published by, eight of the world's most expensive capitals are in Europe. The results of a study conducted by The Economist, quoted by, show Oslo to be the world's most expensive city.

The Norway capital is followed by Paris, Copenhagen and London, while Bucharest ranks only the 96th, on the same level with Manama, Bahrain.

The whole story here.

What can you do? Either take one capital at a time, or try the hostel workaround, it will save you a lot. Try flying low cost or taking your car, if it's not that fuel hungry. Oh, and try less fancy restaurants and save your money for all the important museums. Or, seek for large group tours, they are bound to get discounts.

    I'm really sorry to hear that, considering your trip this summer. (And even more sorry when I remember I almost came along too:( )

    Well, the cities I am to visit can be quite expensive. But when you stay in a hostel and watch your expenses a bit, you can really keep things low budget without really denying yourself anything of importance.

    i am really sorry you are not coming :(

    The most expensive capital I've ever visited is London and it's way too expensive for me! However I enjoyed a great deal its touristic attractions.

    Well, I shall experiment Paris and other capitals this summer. I am sure I will not care about them being expensive :)
