Yes I have heard quite a lot about Bulgaria good and bad things.Golden sands are beautiful but i heard it's dangerous there and it's good to get mugged.But if u go to small towns u see poor people and poverty. Reply to this

I am not interested in Bulgaria I think about Slovakia or Czech Republic and Poland. What do you think about these states? Probably now it is to dangerous to fly to Georgia. I think rather about touring and resting, i don't want to party. Reply to this

As regards Poland I recommend Zakopane, beautiful mountains and incredible mountain routes. There are crowds at this time of the year and it is not possible to rest here. If you want to go to North of Poland i can recommend Masuria or Baltic coast. Reply to this

In Czech Republic I was in Prague.There are many places for sighseeing but it is possible also to rest.There are crowds are in the summer, but also in winter.They have very good beer and regional delicacies .I stayed in student hostel Strahov on the Hill Strahov, There are spartans conditions but this hostel is very cheap.

Probably I am giving up Zakopane and Prague. I am searching for the calm place without crowds, where I could rest and relax.My priority is to be in a place with a lot of nature around, with good landscapes Reply to this

My favourite place is a town in Slovakia - Besonowa. You can find hot springs there and go skiing if you want to have some move. It is really quiet and calm place, please consider it! 😊 Reply to this

Well.. What are you looking for? The Capital can be an interesting one for a few days with its ruin bars and termal bath and if yo just interested in the architecture.. The Duna River as it cuts apart Buda and Pest.
The Duna cuts apart the country as well. The West is really different from the east. So if you are a more meditative lonley persone the Flat East part fmously called PUSZTA will not harm you. If you prefer hills and walks and maybe taste the wine and little towns at a Huge Lake than look around the Balaton (North side).. In hungary everywhere you go you can find Termal bath quite close.
If you like history, than go to the House of Terror in Budapest. actually, in hungary time kind of stopped at the country side so you see the history with no problem. Close to Austria we have the beutiful Sopron town and around the Lake Fertő with the Castle. Waie..And the very spectacular old villiges in the Őrség. Wine tour in Eger, pécs, Badacsony, Tokaj... Actually i would still recommend transilvania for its most amazing Mountains!!! You will not regret that. Maybe around Brassow. And you can go by train from Budapest as well I think. Sorry I get excited aboute those places so I stop now. Reply to this

Ok ..So the HUF Hungarian Forint is a quite weak money now so not entirely sure where you coming from but if you have Pounds it will be around 390 Ft for a pound and that is good. If Euro just check. But still. Travellin is quite cheep again if yo comin from West. Trains are going to take you everywhere and quite comfortable, and the Ticket if you in the capital is better if you know how many days yo spend there and buy a day ticket or a weekly ticket instead one ticket at the time. The underground is going to be simple to understand (just download a map maybe with the 4.th underground line which is new). It's always better to plan ahead i think a little bit, just because the language (can sometimes be frustrating if they don't get what you want immediatly but people friendly and recently more people speak anoher language). I would say Hungary is deffinitley not corowded as hlf of the Country Left😊 and the other half is gardening if they are lucky. Food: A huge variety, so even if you prefer to eat outside you can find cheep food and you will e very full. there are posh restaurants but even the little creepy foodplaces are safe. I would say if ou pay minimum a 1000 Ft for a meal than you will survive😊. That is less than 3 pounds. Lot's of soup! Nice Coffee, quiet corners to sit and relax. Romania was used to very cheep. Now not sure but probably similair to Hun. From hungary you can also jus g to Austria, Germany, Ukrajna by train or to Croatia? that's the South. So as a starting point not too bad. And accomodation, I used the "Couchsurfing" site a lot which is quite safe and free and local paople are kind t sow you around, but f you prefer being your o your own, hostels and gesthouses are from (forexample http://www.zimmerinfo.hu/keszthely/ilona/hu.htm 15 euro/night at Keszthely, Lake Balaton) but make sure you surch enough to find your type of place..cottage, hotel, whatever. And many of the termal Bath has accomodation attached as well. It really depends what type of person you are. 😊 Generally Hungary cheep like India! try to avoid Taxi. Reply to this

Addet im ammazed of your big knowledge.Your information are very helpful for me. I'm planning now my trip around Eastern Europe. I will start maybe in Romania and then go to Hungary, Slovakia, Czech Republic and finish in Poland for more. Thank you for your tips, the more information is better for me. I'm going to travel alone so I need to prepare in details. Reply to this

Hey thrall I was in Poland many times. You must be sure to visit Krakow. There are many monuments such as St. Mary's Church, sukkiennice castle on Wawel, Barbican. There is a lot to explore. communication in Poland is not expensive. You can drive anywhere without a problem. In addition you have to visit Warsaw from Krakow, Tricity, Masuria. In Poland there really are a lot of interesting places to visit Reply to this

Unfortunately, it appears that i won't get as long leave from work as I originally planned. After analyzing everything, I made decision - I won't be visiting all the previously mentioned countries and i picked just one of them. I choose Poland. My plan is to get as much rest and relax as possible, also do some sight-seeing but that's secondary. Generally, im mostly interested in Baltic Sea. Can you suggest me anything about that?

As far as Polish seaside cities are concerned, there are really plenty of cool places to go. It all depends on how you would like to rest. Would you like to do some sight-seeing and relax or also night parties? If parties - be sure to check Gdansk, Gdynia and Sopot. If you want to just relax and have peace and quiet, also you are not too fond of people, look at Rowy, Dziwnowek and Darlowko. Reply to this

^ I found the post above on another forum. What do you think about these suggestions? I am not too interested in parties, but these 3 towns seem interesting. Especially Rowy, as it's next to the Slowinski National Park. Im going to read more about it. Any suggestions either about Darlowek, Dziwnowek or Rowy are appreciated! Reply to this

Actually you found a good info. I've been to Rowy, while doing a Polish seashore tour. It's a little town, just next to the Slowinski National Park. The place is so quiet you can't even imagine. It is very little known place, even by polish tourists, yet it's a gem of polish seashore. There's a river, so you could do canoeing. Rowy also has nice, sandy beaches. What is more, look at the map and at its positioning. Its more or less in the middle of polish shore, which means you will be able to easily get to the Tricity (Gdansk, Sopot, Gdynia), Hel Peninsula or Swinoujscie (next to germany) for a day trip.A really strong option to consider. Have a read about it! Reply to this
