My husband and I are thinking of travelling to Europe this fall and have focused our attention on Prague, Vienna, and the Transylvania region. We are typically budget travellers and enjoy "off the beaten path" and rural locales, hence the selection of Transylvania which I feel will provide a nice contrast to the larger cities of Prague and Vienna.
We have between 2-3 weeks and I broke down our time as follows:
5 days in Prague
5 days in Vienna
7 days in Transylvania Region
Any opinions on this break down of time?
I found a link for cheap flights between Budapest and Tg Mures on http://wizzair.com. Do these flights sell out quickly? is it possible to buy a few days in advance? Do the prices vary much if we did wait? Are there any companies that have cheap flights between Vienna or Prague and any Romanian cities?
For the 7 days in Transylvania region I want to visit Brasov, Sibia, and Sighisoara and of course the surrounding countryside. I am just wondering if it would be best to use one of these places as a base and either rent a car or take the bus for day trips to the others?
Would it be better to split the time between 2 places?
Any recommendations for good travel guides that focus on this area?
Any tips on local restaurants and sites are always appreciated.
