Default Re: Need Eastern Europe Advice

Hello.
I visited hungary and the czech republic last summer. A couple of places i would recomend are;
Kutna Hora in the czech republic, it is about 45min train trip from Prague. A very old town with two very impresive cathedrals but also an enormous catacombs which house the skeletons of 40,000 victims of the plague and civil wars. A very interresting place, reminisent of the catacombs in Paris.
Esztergom a town on the Hungarian Slovak border, it is on a short branch line off the main line from Bratislava to Budapest. There is an imposing Basilica (Cathedral) that over looks the Danube that seperates the two countries and provides spectacular views from the top. I can also recomend the whole area of the Danube bend in North Hungary as being very picturesque.

Hope this helps and I am sure you will have an amazing trip which ever journey you take.

Richard
