I booked a spontaneous flight to Warsaw the other day for August and I am having trouble deciding which way to go for my itinerary. I have 20 nights and I don’t know if I want to spend it all in Poland or split my time with Czechia. This will be my first visit to Poland but I have been to Prague twice. I love the idea of getting to know some smaller Czech cities.
A rough itinerary for just Poland would be
For Poland and Czechia:
Ceske Budejovice 3nt
I won’t have a car and will be relying on buses/trains to get around. I have researched time tables and they all seem like doable journeys for me regarding distance. In your opinion, which itinerary looks best? Is there anything you would add/subtract? Little towns worth stopping through? Also, if you have any advice of things to do and see or some day trips in any of these destinations, it would be much appreciated. I have the RS Eastern Europe guide so places such as Kunta Hora, Cesky Krumlov, Malbork Castle, and the Wieliczka salt mines are on my radar but open to many other suggestions. I enjoy hiking and parks, history and castles, and love experiencing a culture through their food. Thanks for all the help!
