Need help with devising sensible itinerary: Prague and Krakow

Jump to last reply

I discovered this weekend that a friend and I have separately been envisioning trips to Prague. She has another trip planned for Croatia this August and wanted to visit Prague right before the Croatia trip, in late July. I had been thinking about touring Prague and Krakow solo in early September. Now we're thinking about going together the last two weeks of July. Our only must-sees are Prague and Krakow. After our trip she will head on to Split to meet her other friends.

We are flying out of SFO. Does it make more sense to fly into Krakow or Prague? I prefer to avoid connections in the U.S. if possible. And I'll be heading straight back to work when I return, so I want to avoid really arduous, multi-connection journeys for the flights home; obviously one stop will be necessary. My favorite airport to connect through is Schiphol, but it looks like I would have more--and more inexpensive--options connecting through Frankfurt. Is this correct?

In terms of the vacation itself, we are thinking we have time to see more than just Prague and Krakow in two weeks. Any suggestions that would make sense either in terms of flights to/from the West Coast or easy train travel to/from or between Prague and Krakow.

I know this is vague, and I am sorry for that. It's just rather a sudden plan and I, as a Fodorite, want to avoid unnecessary backtracking. I've not done much research.

P.S. We're not averse to renting a car if it makes sense for some of our trip.
