Eastern Europe saves its true charms for September. It’s the time of the harvest, and the end of the hot Summer season. Many Eastern European countries, like Romania and Bulgaria, still boast a welcoming sea shore, with tempting deals on accommodation, clean beaches and a lot else to pamper the soul, or entertain the young at heart. The season still lingers with open beach discos, parties under the moonlight, amusement parks full of laughter and everything else you imagine your sea shore vacation to be.
In Romania, Constanta, Hotel Splendid, close to Mamaia Beach offers accommodation for as little as €40.72 EUR; while in Bulgaria, accommodation is a true bargain, starting at only €15.13 EUR for a room at Dobrudja Hotel, 14.1 miles from Varna.
There are deals in Romania’s favorite mountain resorts as well. Brasov’s Residence Ambient hotel, in the historic center, offers accommodation for only €32.22 EUR, a bargain compared to other hotels in the area. Again, Bulgaria is more affordable, with Stream Resort close to Pamporovo Ski Resort at only €22.21 EUR per room.
Russia is cooling down, and even Moscow, otherwise expensive, lines up some hotel deals, with only €18.42 EUR at Napoleon Hostel.
Turkey is a charming destination all year round. Han Hostel Airport North offers accommodation for just €18.68 EUR; and the list could go on.
