Hello everyone, looking for some ideas out in Central/ Eastern Europe, I am located in Warsaw now. I have been through Prague, Vienna, Croatia, and Slovenia before. I was thinking going into the Tatra mountains in southern poland/ northern slovakia, then to Bratislava, Budapest, then not sure maybe sofia or something, really havent looked much into it yet. I know that regardless i'll need to take a flight to get back to warsaw or to leave warsaw, but i only want to take one flight.
let me know if you have a ideas or experiences out this way
I'd say the important question is how you're going to get across the polish/slovak border in the tatras. Transport in the border areas is quite sparse, especially on the Slovak side. If you had a spare couple of days and did a lot of planning you could probably hike over the ridge from Zakopane, which would be an experience. Otherwise you can take a bus from Zakopane to Zdiar on the slovak side and go from there, but you should allow a whole day to travel to/from wherever you want to be in the mountains.
Vysoké Tatry - Bratislava - Budapest is linked by trains and buses and Budapest is linked to just about anywhere else, so you'll have no problem overlanding one leg. Sounds like a good trip, enjoy!
thanks, i dont recall the trail name right now, but i think it was a day or two in the mountains staying in huts. However it was on the slovakian side and not polish. I'll look into hiking the ridge though, that sounds awesome!
