Romania is the cheapest country in the European Union for booze, with alcoholic drinks costing just 74 percent of the EU average price.

“The price levels for alcoholic drinks in 2018 were lowest in Bulgaria and Romania (both with a price level index of 74) followed by Hungary (77),” Eurostat says.

The price of alcoholic drinks (spirits, wine and beer) across the EU was more than twice as high in the most expensive member state than in the cheapest one.

The highest prices for alcoholic drinks are in Finland (82 percent above EU average), followed by Ireland (+77 percent) and Sweden (+52 percent).
