Need to eliminate a destination

We are going to Central Europe this Sept, and have too busy of a schedule for our liking, but don't know which destination to skip.

- Prague (our flights are here)

- Munich

- Ljubljana, Slovenia

- Dubrovnik & Plitvice Lakes, Croatia (will go thru Zagreb)

- Vienna

Help!

just speaking logically, I'd skip Munich, as it's slightly out of way, and go straight to Ljubljana.

From Zagreb, you may take a car and drive to Plitvice Lakes, and onwards to Dubrovnik. Drop the car, and fly local airline back to Zagreb..

That was my first thought as well. Munich really is lovely but practically speaking, it makes the most sense to drop. We have been everywhere you mention and they are all brilliant, especially Croatia but, after all, I am a little biased! :-)

thinking aloud, to change routes, you may go from Prag to Salzburg, then Ljubljana, and through Karlovac to Plitvice, and backwards to Zagreb, and through Graz to Vienna and Prag...

How would you suggest we get from Prague to Slovenia? We were planning on train, but that looks tough. Thanks!

train Prague-Salzburg 6.5 hrs, train Salzburg-Ljubljana 4.5 hrs, ... or directly Prague-LJubljana 11.5 hrs...

How much time do you have for your trip ? Maybe skip Munich and Vienna altogether. And come back another time to visit Austria, which has many other cities worth visiting besides Vienna.

We have 2 weeks for our upcoming trip to Croatia only and we have impression that we need more time than that just for Croatia...

We are going for 15 days, and know that some locations will take more time than others. We are wanting a nice blend of nature vs. cities.

So far you have not got a blend of cities and nature. It's all cities apart from Plitvice.

Yes, our plans for Slovenia are all nature/outdoors. I hear the gorges are breathtaking. Although we are skipping the white water rafting. And even in Dubrovnik, we plan to spend that time outside and include a day trip to MIjet, if time allows.
