Itinerary Suggestions

Jump to last reply

I have been invited to Kiev, Ukraine to give a talk on a Thursday in November (12th). We are planning on leaving San Francisco Sunday the 8th and returning on Sunday the 15th.

On the one hand, I think it would be nice to spend all the time in Kiev and get to know the city. On the other hand, I am thinking that while we are way out there on the other side of the planet, it might be a good time to visit another Eastern European city, like Budapest. The problem is, if we do that, we can only really tour around each city for a few days.

Anyone here been to Kiev? Is there enough to do for the full week (minus the one day for the conference)? I am an avid photographer. I imagine Budapest is a very photographic city. But I am not sure about Kiev. Any thoughts?

I realize this is a very subjective question (how much packing and unpacking do we want to do in a week), but I always have gotten great advice from this forum, so I thought I would put it out there and see what people say.

Thanks,
Daniel
