I am looking at planning a trip to Eastern Europe, with Poland (mainly Krakow) being my main interest. I am tentatively thinking of visiting Prague, Krakow, Vienna, Budapest. Obviously this is a lot (I am thinking 8-10 days). What is the best way to get around? Bus or train?
Also, I have never travelled solo before and think I will have a hard time convincing my parents it is safe and ok. Would you recommend traveling solo or going on a tour (ie busabout, contiki, etc)
Any recommendations at all?
I want to see FOR SURE Auchwitz, and the salt mines...
