(FYI - I also posted on the Budapest board). My husband and I are planning to travel to Europe in March 2007. We’re interested in going to either Prague or Budapest. We will have six days once we leave Munich, but I’m thinking that traveling to both cities won’t leave us enough time (unless there is a quick and relatively inexpensive way to get to Budapest from Prague or vice-versa), and we’re really torn on where to go.
So my questions are -
1) In your opinion, which city is better to visit – we’re mostly interested in seeing historic sights, castles, churches, etc., going to the pub and maybe catching a performance or two. (And which is the best to visit in the winter.)
2) I know that hotels in Prague are more expensive than in Budapest, but how does food, entertainment, transportation compare?
3) We don’t want to spend six days in one place, so are there any recommendations between Munich and Prague or Budapest that are must-visits? We were looking at Karvoly Vary if we went to the Czech Republic, but weren’t sure how expensive things are there.
Thank you for your input!
