I'm traveling end May 2013 from Prgue to Krawkow and from Krakow to Bratislavia on overnight trains. The tickets my fiance and I got are Regular 1st class European East Pass 95 days within 1 Month). Could someone kindly hep with these questions:
-What are the differences in the 1st and 2nd class tickets? We just got 1st class becuase it cost the same from another website.
-Is it safe to travel on overnight trains in the regular 1st class cabins with luggage? We're moving from Prague to Krawkow to Bratislava to Budapest then back to Prague so we will have big lugagge with us.
-If not, would you suggest sleeper cabins? I read that unless we get the private ones, males and females have to split up and we prefer not to.
-Must we top up for overnight trains if our tickets are the Regular 1st class European East Pass 95 days within 1 Month)?
-Which website can we go to to book our seats reservations?
-Is it best to get the hotel to make arrangement to pick us up from the train station or to flag down a cab from the stations?
Thanks so much for your help!! =)
