Top ten European weekend destinations

The economic crisis that affected the whole world in the past few years also put a mark on the travel industry. The number of tourists has decreased for all types of destinations just as the funds available for vacations.

Under these economic circumstances many individuals compromise and change the one-week or two-week holiday with one or two weekend vacations. The weekend destinations should be close so the traveling time to get there to be as short as possible. This is the main reason that makes the European continent very attractive for weekend city breaks.

The major European capitals are still in the top ten weekend destinations but cheaper eastern European capitals entered the top as a consequence to the limited vacation funds.
