Warsaw 'most affordable cultural capital'
26 January 2009 07:45
According to its new Cost of Culture report, the Polish capital is by far the most affordable city holidaymakers can stay at when looking for a cultural weekend away.
By comparison, London topped the list of the Post Office's most expensive culture capitals, driven up by the cost of attractions such as the Royal Opera House and Buckingham Palace.
Whereas a top ten itinerary of the British capital would cost travellers a total of £308, in Warsaw a comparable journey sets intrepid holidaymakers back a mere £75.
Commenting on the survey, Post Office spokesperson Helen Warburton said: "We based our report on the idea that culture vultures will want to pack in two gallery visits a day over a three day break and spend evenings out at music-based events."
She added: "While the eurozone has taken a knocking in recent weeks because of the sliding pound, our survey shows that culture lovers can get a great deal in its cities."
