Hello there. We are planning our trip for November. We are going to Prague and Budapest. However, we always wanted to go to Auschwitz. Just looked it up and it is at least 5.5 hours (without traffic) one way, so we are not making it a day trip. The plan is now changed and we are thinking about going to Krakow for 2 days and then to Prague and Budapest.
Day 1: Krakow arrival.
Day 2: Auschwitz and overnight train into Prague.
Day 3-6: Prague
Day 6: Prague to Budapest train, a few days there , then home.
Questions: would you recommend renting a car and driving from Krakow to Auschwitz, then Auschwitz to Prague and returning the car there? Is it pretty easy to drive there? Is it pretty easy to return the car at a different country or not possible at all? Would you recommend to go to Warsaw instead and then go to Prague from there? Or...should we bypass Krakow and Warsaw altogether and fly into Prague and take a roundtrip train to Auschwitz?
Thank you in advance!
