Budapest, Hungary’s capital city, is a great destination for those who want to have a striking nightlife experience at very cheap prices. So-called “ruin-bars” are definitely a must here. Old Soviet buildings have been transformed into huge dance parties with loads of communist artefacts. What’s more, in summer you can attend one of the pool parties organised in the Turkish baths.

Wroclaw

Wroclaw, Poland

Wroclaw (“vrot” + “slav”) is a beautiful city in south-west Poland hailed Europe’s best destination of 2018. Here you can try to count all the dwarf figures, eat the best pierogi and make an attempt to over-drink a Pole (which we don’t recommend). By night the spirit of the city moves to the famous nightlife district called Pasaz Niepolda, where you can explore over half a dozen pubs and clubs.

Best party spots:

Bezsennosc and Mundo at Pasaz Niepolda, Casa de La Musica and X Demon at Market Square, Szajba at Pokoyhof.

In Kyiv you can finally let loose and embrace your inner party animal while dancing into the dawn in one of the numerous clubs. Plus you can afford pretty much everything, even in the super-fancy clubs like Arena City.

Best party spots:

Caribbean Club, Forsage, Alchemist, Arena City and many others.

Best sites for trips to Kyiv
