Holiday has arrived and you ask yourself where to go because you would go crazy staying at home for 3 months. Lucky for you, there are still places to visit on this Planet where you don’t have to be rich to do so.

You don’t necessarily have to go to Copacabana or Tenerife in order to have fun. Maybe you think that only because you are a student and your bank account is not that “fat”, you can’t afford a quality trip. Well, you might be wrong. Here are some of the best places to visit if you are a student.


If you’re not living under a rock, the chances are that you heard the story of Dracula. Well, Romania is his birthplace. Although Romania doesn’t have vampires anymore, it can delight you with beautiful landscapes, amazing countryside experiences, and very friendly people.

If you are a history passionate, Romania has lots of castles for you to visit, including the most popular one called The Bran Castle, which is linked to the Dracula legend. Bram Stoker was actually inspired by this castle in the description of his protagonist’s home castle.

Romania has both mountains and seaside, so you can choose whichever you like. At the same time, nightlife in Romania is very cheap in comparison to other European countries. Hotel rooms are also cheaper than anywhere in Central Europe. For example, a night at a central hotel in Bucharest is about 30 Euros per night.


Not far from the country that we already talked about, Bulgaria comes with the most popular beach resort in this region, the Sunny Beach. For the quality it delivers, the prices here are almost a joke.

However, if you are not a party animal, this place is not really the best idea for you. You might head to the capital, Sofia, where things are a bit calmer. This city provides you with beautiful Roman architecture, nice people, interesting museums and a huge national park.


The German capital Berlin is known as the friendliest student city in the whole world. Why is that? Because Berlin is the host for no more than five of the country’s universities, including Europe’s largest art school. In other words, Berlin is the student’s city.

With so many students, there is no wonder that the nightlife here is nothing less than legendary. But then again, if you are not interested in nightlife, then Berlin has something else to offer. You can visit the Berlin Wall and learn more about Germany’s history while trying some of the traditional street food such as currywurst and schnitzel.


Comparable to Venice, Amsterdam has a lot to offer, especially if you are a student. Its vibrant nightlife, with the notorious Red Light District, will almost certainly hit you. Although this is what Amsterdam is famous for, it still has more to offer besides sex.

You can hire a bicycle and explore the city’s streets and canals. Another place to visit in Amsterdam is the world’s only floating flower market, Bloemenmarkt. It is impossible for you to feel bored when you are in Amsterdam.


If you are an adventurer, then Crete should be your holiday destination. The island is perfectly located and with only 186 Euros for a week’s stay, you can do almost anything you like, from kayaking to scuba diving or hiking. Not to mention that it’s perfect for getting that perfect sun-kissed skin.

As you can see, students can also afford themselves a beautiful holiday. There are lots of places to visit and things to do in this world. In fact, we should feel lucky and blessed for the world we live in because it is our home, no matter where we are situated.
