Hey all!

So from June 7-June 21 I've got a two week vacation which I'm going to use to travel around Europe. I currently live near Venice, so I want to visit the following countries and places in those countries:

Czech Republic (Prague)
Poland (Warsaw, Krakow, Auschwitz)
Slovakia
Hungary
Serbia (I've got a friend there)
Croatia
Slovenia

I'm trying to sort out places to go/see in each of those countries, and which countries will need more time than others. Also how to get from one country to the next, wether by train, plane, or bus is cheapest. ALSO any advice on wether I should visit them in the order I've listed or in reverse order would be AMAZINGLY helpful!

And if anyone else is interested in doing this trip with me, let me know!

2 weeks is not enough for all these countries. Soem places have long border crossings and trains are in frequent and long as well.

Choose a direction from Venice first, North or South
In the summer south will be extremely hot. Id suggest north unless you hug the coast.

And since I dont like the coast much (so touristic), ill give you advice on the northern route ;)

Venice to Buapest is a direct and easy train ride. Budapest is worth a few days and Lake Balaton for some sun shine too.

Then a train to Slovakia is easy. Bratislava for a day or two, good beer drinking town.
Trencin is a nice town to the north of Brati with a big castle and nice old town and good nightlife.

From Trencin routes to Prague or Krakow are possible But again you have to make a choice as by now you will only have 1 week left. I wouldnt suggest trying both countries.

I hope this helps in some way
