  Hotel prices in Europe
I've just returned from Europe (Budapest, Prague, Berlin) and the prices of the hotels are much lower than they used to be. Just ask for the discount and you probably get it.
  Eastern Europe
Eastern Europe is much cheaper than the Western one. Extremely good prices are in Romania and Bulgaria, not bad in Slovakia and Czech republic. And these countries are very nice, especially Czech with its culture and the sea in some places in Bulgaria. Recommended!
  Drahá Evropa
Evropa sice je docela drahá, ale díky stoupající koruně už to naštěstí není tak hrozné jako dřív (a bohužel také díky tomu, že se v Česku zdražuje, takže už nám to tak nepřijde). Osobně jsem třeba nedávno bydlel v centru Madridu za 600 Kč za noc na osobu a nebylo to nic moc, podobně se dá pořídit ub

What Others say

Europe is one of the seven traditional continents of Earth. The westernmost peninsula of Eurasia, it is bounded to the north by the Arctic Ocean, to the west by the Atlantic Ocean, to the south by the Mediterranean Sea, to the southeast by the Caucasus Mountains, the Black Sea and the waterways connecting the Black Sea to the Mediterranean. To the east, Europe is generally divided from Asia by the water divide of the Ural Mountains, the Ural River, and by the Caspian Sea. Europe is the world's second-smallest continent in terms of area, covering about 10,180,000 square kilometres (3,930,000 sq mi) or 2% of the Earth's surface and about 6.8% of the planet's total land area. It hosts a large number of sovereign states (ca. 50), whose precise number depends on the underlying definition of Europe's border, as well as on the in- or exclusion of semi-recognized states. Of all European countries, Russia is the largest by both area and population, while the Vatican is the smallest. Europe is the third most populous continent after Asia and Africa with a population of 710,000,000 or about 11% of the world's population. However, Europe's borders and population are in dispute, as the term continent can refer to a cultural and political distinction or a physiographic one. Europe is the birthplace of Western culture. European nations played a predominant role in global affairs from the 16th century onwards, especially after the beginning of colonization. By the 17th and 18th centuries European nations controlled most of Africa, the Americas, and large portions of Asia. World War I and World War II led to a decline in European dominance in world affairs as the United States and Soviet Union took prominence. The Cold War between those two superpowers divided Europe along the Iron Curtain. European integration led to the formation of the Council of Europe and the European Union in Western Europe, both of which have been expanding eastward since the fall of the Soviet Union in 1991.
