Backpacking in South East Europe

Jump to last reply

Hello, I am a college student studying abroad this Fall in Barcelona. Some friends and I plan on backpacking in Eastern Europe, from Budapest to Istanbul. We have 3 weeks from Nov 30th to Dec 22nd. We are college students on a tight budget, that is why we chose Eastern Europe for its cheap cities. We are interested in using the Eurail Pass for Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria, and Turkey and I wanted some ideas for the itinerary. I was interested in Budapest, Szentendre, Sibiu, Brasov/Bran, Sighisoara, Bucharest, Sofia, Plovdiv, Edirne, and Istanbul. Obviously, we can't go to all of these cities in 3 weeks so I have to pick and chose. We are architecture students from America and I am interested in Urbanism, History, culture and walkability. If Turkey becomes dangerous by December we will go to Athens instead, however, Istanbul is more ideal in architecture and price. Our itinerary is as follows,

Nov 29th - Fly from Barcelona to Budapest
Nov 30th - Dec 6th - Budapest w/ day trip to Szentendre and Visegrad castle
Dec 7th - Sibiu Romania
Dec 8th - 9th Brasov w/ day trip to Bran Castle
Dec 10th - Bucharest
Dec 11th - 12th - Sofia
Dec 13th - Plovdiv
Dec 14th - Edirne (or Delphi)
Dec 15th - 20th - Istanbul (or Athens)
Dec 21st - fly to Barcelona
Dec 22nd - fly from Barcelona to the USA

We have a round trip ticket to Barcelona, so we have to end back in Barcelona. Is this too rushed? Thanks for any suggestions.
