The Which? survey asked members to rate 40 different European destinations based on factors including accommodation, ease of getting around and food and drink.

Krakow was the only destination that received five stars for value and came highly rated across the board.

Which? found that Brits could get a beer for less than £2, and a meal under £7, while hotels were half the cost of Amsterdam or Paris, on average.

The research also looked at the average hotel and flight cost, along with the attractions, public transport, value for money and lack of crowds.

Rory Boland, Which? Travel Editor, said: “With a palace on every corner and a plate of pierogi (filled dumplings) and a pint of Pilsner costing under £10, it’s no wonder Krakow continues to top our survey.

“To those holidaymakers still stuck on Amsterdam, Paris and other classic European destinations, try Poland for your next trip to find food, hotels and sightseeing that’s just as good but at half the price.”
