Hello -- I greatly appreciate this forum and all the advice!! I would greatly appreciate it if anyone who has done a similar trip to what I am planning could give me any advice on this tentative itinerary for mid-July, leaving from Prague following a few days there (I do not have control over the timing per family obligations). I spent a week in Prague last summer.
I will preface this by saying that last summer I spent a few days in Litomysl and fell in love with the town, the castle, the square etc. I realize that towns of this size generally close up early, even in the summer. I will be traveling by bus and train. I have checked all the schedules on www.IDOS.cz to try to minimize travel connections and times, during weekdays and weekends. I also realize that I probably can't go wrong because every place is so beautiful. I will be traveling light (1 wheeled suitcase with a backpack) and obviously, don't mind moving around a lot in order to be able to visit a lot of places.
If this looks just too crazy based on others' experience, please let me know!! Thank you so much!!!
