Eastern Europe Plans

Jump to last reply

I am planning to visit western Ukraine next spring in order to do a bit of family history research. For that part of the trip, I will be in three towns just to the east of Lviv. This portion of the trip can be dome in two days. I know this is off the main tourist trail, but I want to make a vacation out of the rest of the time.

I am thinking of spending three days in Lviv (where I have to be anyway to get to the places mentioned above), which is suppose to be very nice, more western oriented than the rest of Ukraine. My question is what to do from there?????

I am leaning towards taking the train to Budapest, about 12 hours, and spending maybe 3 or 4 days in the city, and a one day trip to the Danube river towns nearby. Or I could stay in Ukraine, going to Kiev. Poland is relatively close, but I have already been there.

Any opinions? For the entire trip I will probably have about 11 or 12 days from the eastern US.
