We’re going on a honeymoon this November, and it’s non-negotiable that I get to go to Budapest and he gets to do all that Dracula bullshit in Romania. We had planned to also see Krakow and Prague, but we’re looking at the travel time involved and thinking maybe we should do one less city and get to do more day trips out of the other places.
So which should we skip? Based not just on the city itself but also the things you can do in a day’s train ride from there. Everybody loves Prague, but it’s just not one of those places I’ve ever been super-enthusiastic about going to, and plus it kind of seems like it belongs on a different trip (with, like, Vienna and stuff.) And, I mean, everybody goes to Prague. (But is that just me being an obnoxious hipster?) Rick Steves likes both cities. But if we go to Krakow I’m going to feel like I have to go to Auschwitz, so there’s that. I dunno. Internet, give me input.
