Struggling to decide on a destination for the last few weeks of the summer?

If you like a beer, then the 2016 Beer Price Index released by GoEuro this week could have a dramatic influence on your decision.

The BPI compares the price of a beer across 70 different cities and gives a concise answer on where to go if you want to get a beer on the cheap.

Bratislava, the capital of Slovakia, comes out on top, with a beer costing just €1.48 on average (and just 46c for a can in the supermarket).

Dublin finished mid-table, in 37th place, which isn’t so bad – though this owes largely to how cheap beer is in supermarkets compared to the pub price. According to the index, the average price of a beer in Dublin is €3.30.

The other cities that make up the top 10 are:

2. Kiev, Ukraine

3. Krakow, Poland

4. Belgrade, Serbia

5. Warsaw, Poland

6. Ljubljana, Slovenia

7. Budapest, Hungary

8. Bucharest, Romania

9. Seville, Spain

10. Munich, Germany

The full list of 70 cities, which includes cities from other continents, can be found here.
