2 days in each city?

Travel Forums Europe 2 days in each city?

Is two full days enough in each of these cities:

Budapest
Zagreb
Sarajevo
Belgrade
Sofia
Bucharest
L'Viv
Krakow
Prague

Or are some of those cities better served with one day? I have a max of two days per city.

I am not asking you to recommend what you think are "better" cities, I solely want to know if 2 days is sufficient.

Thanks!

I think two days in Prague is kinda tight

The only city I've been to is Prague. 2 days is possible, but not great.
Don't forget in every single city you'll waste time finding your hotel, checking in, ckecking out, packing, unpacking. That alone make it little time to so many cities.

Good luck.

I've not been to all of these cities naturally, however of the four I've been to I'd say -

Zagreb - one day is probably better
Sarajevo - two days is good, but if you can stay for longer then do it
Krakow - same as Sarajevo, particularly if you want to go to the two daytrips most people make (Wieliczka and Auschwitz)
Prague - for me, two days is fine, but there's a lot to see

PLease alot 3 full days to Prague. You absolutely need it. Two FULL days (morning to night) is warranted in Budapest. Hope this helps.

I only passed through Lviv, but from looking at the city I think you'll need more than 2 days.

Please remember also that travelling in this area is slow - these cities might look close on a map, but due to bad roads and old vehicles the time required to travel the distances between is substantial. (I'm especially thinking about my experience waiting for 4 hours at the border between Poland and Ukraine. I had to cough up a little unofficial "gift" of 5 EUR so that my baggage would finally get checked for contraband. Without my luggage cleared I couldn't get my entry stamp and I was tired and sick of waiting.) Krakow to Lviv takes at least a day, maybe even a day and a half if you travel by bus.

Hello Will:)

No, 2 days is not enough, in each city.
I would spend 4 or 5 days, in each city.

If you move fast, you can read a map and generally know what you want to do you can do almost any city in two days. Last summer I did this fast travelling where I was in each city for two days or less. Sure, you miss a lot and it isn't the same as spending a week in one place, but you get the gist if not more. Of all the cities I visited, I think I only missed one or two things I really planned on seeing. Good luck!
