We are planning a 10 day trip to Prague and Budapest in August 2018. We have initially planned 4 nights Prague, 2 nights CK, and 3 nights Budapest. I have a hotel reservation for CK but I expect the town will be extremely busy due to the music festival.
Since we are not particularly interested in the music festival, should we plan to visit another small town instead on our way to Budapest? We will be using public transportation. CK is highly recommended, so I hate to miss it but we will be in two very busy cities and might prefer a different experience.
Has anyone been to CK during the music festival? Was it impossible to get into restaurants? We can embrace the experience if it’s truly not to be missed but I always travel with the expectation that I will return someday so as not to regret the things that I can’t visit. Another experience might be perfect for this trip.
Thanks for any thoughts or suggestions.
