The air is warmer, the days are longer and our trips to the beer garden are fast approaching.

You may be booking your summer getaways or planning a trip to the pub with friends.

Aside from the cheapest flights and best hotel deals, you might also be considering which pints of beer will put the smallest dent in your pocket after a long hard day of sightseeing.

That’s particularly the case for London dwellers who find themselves living among some of the most expensive pints in Europe.

It my surprise you though to find out it’s not actually the most expensive capital city on the list, even if you do frequently fork out more than £7 for a glass of the gold stuff.

Travel booking website OMIO has dug into the data to find the cheapest and most expensive cities to buy a pint in Europe, using cost-of-living database Numbeo.

Where is the cheapest pint of beer in Europe?

You won’t even spend £1 for a pint in the country often branded ‘the last dictatorship in Europe’.

At just £0.90, Minsk in Belarus is the cheapest capital city in Europe for a pint of draught beer.

That’s cheaper than a Coca-Cola from McDonald’s here in the UK.



European capitals with the cheapest pints of beer

  • Minsk, Belarus – £0.90
  • Chișinău, Moldova – £1.11
  • Baku, Azerbaijan – £1.16
  • Tbilisi, Georgia – £1.45
  • Yerevan, Armenia – £1.57
  • Sofia, Bulgaria – £1.66
  • Skopje, Macedonia – £1.66
  • Pristina, Kosovo – £1.71
  • Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina – £1.75
  • Prague, Czech Republic – £1.86

If you can stomach the political repression, you can definitely down a few pints in the far east of Europe.

Although, if you find yourself heading a bit further south, the landlocked country of Moldova is second on the list at just £1.11 per pint in its capital Chișinău.

There you can find the Arcul De Triumf that rivals Paris’ own triumphal arch, the city’s 19th century cathedral, and the seven-hectare ‘park of the lovers’ called Stefan the Great Park.

Iceland already has a reputation for being pricey and freezing cold, but the volcanic landscape and Northern Lights might just make £8.61 per pint worth it.

Much the same is true for the next two on the list – Oslo, Norway and Helsinki, Finland – where beautiful nature and historic cities come with a hefty price tag.
