Paris and London are dazzling places to visit, but these popular European cities can drain a bank account as assuredly as they can entertain. If you’re willing to travel a bit further afield, and step away from the comfort of the dollar-like Euro, a more affordable Europe still exists – in Budapest. This city teems with attractions and culture, and at a fraction of the cost of its more populous European sisters. Here’s a peek into what you can see and do in this Eastern European mainstay, and for very little money.

Visit the cathedral: Budapest’s largest church is free to visit and offers opulent interiors, as well as an eye-popping relic: the withered hand of the church’s namesake, St. Stephen, inside a gold box. You’ll need to pay a small donation to light it up so it’s visible, but for the photo op, it’s worth it. You can also climb the dome for views of the city for about $2.

See the Parisi Underpass: Blink and you’ll miss the entrance, but this glorious domed arcade is worth a few minutes of browsing and photo-snapping while you’re touring the busy, tourist-filled neighborhood near the river. Grander than the Paris arcades that it’s trying to emulate, and dust-caked from years of neglect, this gem will make you want to come back in 10 years – if only to see what becomes of this stunning space. Free to enter.
