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! Reply to this

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! Reply to this
