You should definitely see Praque and also Karlovy vary. I think spending 3 or 4 days is more than enough

I was in Cesky Krumlov in July. Very nice place, but you might appreciate it more in summer. I can recommend staying and eating at Hostel 99 in Cesky Krumlov.

Hey and jump!

I think that Cesky Krumlov is a very nice place, allso in the winter. I have been there two times, one in the summer and one in the winter. It`s two different trips, but winter over there is sweeet.
What makes the place so grand, ore some of it, is the nice people, the exiting city- structure, the good tasting food and the climate. Krumlov has a great summer, but the winter is even more beutifull. It`s really easy to find a place to sleep and the people who rents you a bed, is really cool. When you enter the city- gate, I suggest you should try the first hostel on your left side. But there is lots of other good sleepinns.

I tell you, go there! I mean, Prauge is a fantastic city,
but in the wintertime you`ll find the kosyness of eastern europe, embrazing Cesky Krumlov.

I anyways hope you`ll have a interesting jurney and a life that make sense to you.

I loved Prague, ah the view on top of that tower on Petrin Hill (think it's called that anyway) amazing! Prague is an amzing city, definately see it!

When we were heading round Europe we only made a quick stop in Poland, and that was in Krakow because I wanted to go see Auschwitz. Krakow was a really nice city, however we were only really there for half a day and didn't get that much exploring done! Definately go though! i hear Warsaw is meant to be a beautiful place too!
