According to the Post Office’s annual Cost of Culture report, the cost of six cultural highlights in Prague has fallen by nearly 26 per cent since last year to £93.58, making it the cheapest destination in the survey.
London has been ranked 12th in the survey at a total of £282.30, which is about 10.5 per cent increased than the last year.
The research looked at the costs for UK tourists of visiting museums, galleries, heritage sites and dance and music performances in 16 cities boasting world-class attractions.
Despite the reduced value in the pound, Prague along with Moscow and Rome were found to have decreased for UK tourists. After Prague, Warsaw, Budapest and Moscow were identified as being the best value for culture of the 16 cities surveyed.
Andrew Brown, the head of travel money at the Post Office, said, “More UK holidaymakers are taking city breaks than any other type of overseas trip and our latest consumer research confirms that a city’s cultural attractions are the most important consideration when deciding where to visit. However, this year’s Cost of Culture report found that performance and entry prices vary dramatically between cities.
“Culture vultures looking for good value can save hundreds of pounds by doing their homework before booking and swapping expensive cities for cheaper ones.”
