Declared the world's most expensive country in 1990, prices have since abated somewhat but are still steep by most standards. Rock-bottom traveling if staying in hostel dorms and self-catering costs at least â¬25/day and it's well worth doubling that amount. The cheapest hotels cost about â¬ 50 per night and more regular hotels closer to â¬Â 100. Instead of hotels or hostels, look for holiday cottages, especially when travelling in a group and off-season, you can find a full-equipped cottage for â¬10-15 per person a night. Camp-sites typically cost between â¬ 10 and â¬ 20 per tent.
Museums and tourist attractions have an entrance fee in the range of â¬ 5-25. Using public transport costs a few euros per day and depends on the city. One-way travel between major cities by train or by bus costs between â¬20 and â¬100, depending on the distance.
Note that a VAT of 23% is charged for nearly everything, but by law this must be included in the displayed price. Non-EU residents can get a tax refund for purchases above â¬40 at participating outlets, just look for the Tax-Free Shopping logo.
